The Road to Healing by Marcy

After

In November of last year, I began noticing pain in my elbow. Unfortunately the pain grew and eventually I was diagnosed with tennis elbow. My doctor recommended rest and avoiding any activity that would irritate it. This was very discouraging as I would have to stop doing weight-bearing exercises. I really enjoy working out and I thought I would have to stop all together. For a few weeks, I did no type of exercise and was feeling very discouraged. Not exercising made me feel more tired and sluggish. Soon after, I realized I needed to find a type of exercise that I enjoy and would be able to do with my elbow injury.

That’s when I found Cathe. I ordered my first DVD, Butts and Guts, since it did not require upper body use. When I first tried this workout I was shocked. It was hard and challenging, but in a good way. I loved it. After mastering Butts and Guts, I went back for more. I ordered several other Cathe DVD’s including Low Max and Turbo Barre. In just a few short weeks, I became a dedicated Cathlete.

Cathe has helped me to stay fit and allowed me to work out even with an injury where I wasn’t sure if I would be able to workout at all. I have now taken my fitness up a notch and have become stronger than I ever imagined I would without lifting weights.

My tennis elbow has now healed and I am slowly adding in weights to my Cathe workouts. I also recently turned 50 and feel in better shape now than I did when I was 40. I hope to be in better shape at age 60 than I am now with the help of Cathe’s exercise DVDs. I can’t wait to keep exploring other Cathe DVD’s and improve not only my health, but my life. Thanks Cathe!!

    Hi Marcy! Your story is so inspiring! I am glad you elbow has healed! As for turning 50 it is pretty cool when you are in shape like you :)

    Congratulations! I too am an avid exerciser and broke my scaphoid bone in my wrist. I had to have bone graft surgery in August and I have not been able to do much weight bearing exercise which drove me crazy However lower body exercises (running, abs, Cathe’s Low Impact Spin video) has helped keep me in tip top shape without the weights. I am currently in OT and am looking forward to getting back to the weights in a month or so. I am 47 and hope to be in great shape like you when I reach 50!

    I’m a 63 year old Cathlete. I found Cathe when I turned 60 and am thankful every day for her expert instruction and fun workouts.
