Back on July 12, 2008 I decided that I wanted to lose 50lbs so I started dieting after 12 years of being overweight. By October 2008 I had lost a total of 31lbs and started getting worried because the skin on my body had started to droop. I wasn’t happy with how I looked naked so I started looking into my options with fitness. I remember someone had told me that exercise helps to firm the body so I began to workout. I was doing really well for a couple of months doing other workouts and was becoming fit which was awesome, but I was losing fat very slow. I remember coming across a profile with a lovely lady in it who stated that “Cathe kicked her butt” and that lady’s after picture showed her awesome six pack. I wanted that! So, I decided to find out who Cathe was and I’ve been hooked every since.
The first series I bought was Cathe’s Hardcore Series and then I started buying some of her other workouts here and there. Cathe’s workouts make up about 85% of my total exercise program now and it’s because I know that when I do a Cathe workout that I’m getting a good workout. I was able to drop a lot of fat, build muscle and increase strength in a short amount of time. Cathe’s boot camp, circuit and interval workout are my go to workouts when I really need a butt kickin’ because they are very challenging and tough. If you don’t have a single Cathe DVD in your video collection then I’m not sure what you’re doing in your home gym, seriously.
Later on I had invested in STS and just doing that 3.5 month rotation, the first time around, helped me to earn a major
amount of muscle definition and strength gains – I finally was able to visually see cuts in my arms! Mesocycle 2 is what helped me to build bigger muscles and that’s the mesocycle I look to when my schedule calls for bulking. A month of just that puts on a lot of muscle for me which is AMAZING. Since I started my weight loss journey I have lost and kept off 60lbs through good dieting and doing challenging workouts.
In closing, I just want to thank you, Cathe, for making the best and some of the hardest darn advanced workouts in the industry. I am not a gym rat and my passion is working out at home because that is where I can really go all out with my workouts. The home exerciser in me adores you and all of what you do. I am at a point in my “fitness life” where I can keep up with you and your crew. I can now lift heavy amounts of weight, do push ups and pull ups (oh my), move quickly, tuck jump, air jack, burn out on low ends, do a million power 7’s and I can step plus have fun doing it! I feel liberated, strong and motivated to keep doing better. I’ve never been able to do activities in the past and enjoy them. I feel like a tough chick after I complete your workouts. I want to also thank you for Butts & Guts, IMAX3, Low Max, STS, Cardio Fusion and Intensity especially – these are my absolute favorites and I do these workouts A LOT! Keep bringing them on!!!!!
