The Music, and Choreography Can’t be Beat! – by Mg

(Last Updated On: August 14, 2011)

Your step videos have been a regular play in my family room since my sons were toddlers. They are now graduated from college. And I am in better shape now then before I got pregant twenty some years ago, thanks to an hour every other day with Cathe.

Today, as in the past year, 5 of your DVDs never leave my player . . . it’s a no-brainer: I just skip to the next one each day (or every other, depending on work) and play, step, lift and sweat. Please make more like: Low Max, Low impact circuit, Body Max 2, Athletic Step and Step Moves . . (the music is great on all of these) and the combos not boring; they just keep getting better!

I am a two-time cancer survivor and a nurse in a very busy Trauma center. There is a well known founder of a gym around our locale. People at work wonder how I stay in shape when I tell them I don’t belong to any gym. When they talk about a personal trainer, I tell them I have one: Cathe! Her upbeat, “We’re in it together!” always makes me smile and she pushes me to my limit, “C’mon now, get your game face on!” with encouragement, just when its most needed. Please, please make more! Cathe and her regular gals (thank to Cede and her counting, not Cathe’s forte:) ), the music, and choreography can’t be beat!

Thank you for dress size 6 instead of 12, and arms that have some shape :). I am able to wear sleeveless tops! Best of all, is the amount of energy and stamina working out with Cathe has given me. She is also my mental therapy. When things get too demanding or overwhelming a good step session is a great stress reliever. And, unlike my friends, I don’t have to waste time driving to the gym and back. Her routines are able to do (to the max) right in my family room with out too much space required. She has trained me up with proper weight lifting combos and techniques, and also stretching afterwards. Her welcome use of free weights and step keeps the amount of exercise paraphenalia to a minimum.

Thank you, Thank you and please don’t stop making 45- 60 minute step DVD’s!

  1. Mg, you took the words right out of my mouth! Thank you for your excellent praise of Cathe and her crew. I love doing the step routines and weight lifting (especially STS.) They are why I have energy and patience not to mention toned arms as well. We’re in this together!

  2. Those are my five favorite DVDs too! I’ve pre-ordered the low impact series, can’t wait for them to arrive! I have two teenagers graduating next year and the year after and I’m also in better health than before my pregnancies thanks to Cathe. I plan on keeping up my step/weight rotation and maintain my better health. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I enjoyed reading your success story. Stories like this inspire me to keep on working out. i just had my 60th birthday this weekend. This morning i walked three miles came home and did Muscle Max. What a way to begin a new week!

  4. MG – I actually have a gym membership but couldn’t agree more about Cathe’s workouts – and like the others here, you have named some of my favorites. Her Step DVDs are consistently better than the classes at the gym, which are becoming a rarity these days. When I asked about that I was told “Nobody does that anymore” to which I replied “You’re clearly not familiar with Cathe Nation!”

    Thanks for the inspiration!
