Building strength with Cathe by Suzanne

(Last Updated On: June 19, 2011)

I just finished cathe’s STS and what a difference it made in my strength building. My sister convinced me to get the STS and I was a bit hesitant since I tried so many other programs before. I even worked out with two different trainers in the past. One was an ex NFL player and the other was an ex amateur boxer. They both had good programs but I didn’t see the gains like I did with STS.

I decided to take my sister’s advice to get it and we also decided to do the program together. She lives in Delaware and I live in Georgia and it was fun to “workout together” being in separate states. We are very close and now we are even closer since we started the program. We started in February after I saw my son off who is now deployed in Afghanistan. I thought it would help me stay busy while he was over there. I was into the first cycle when I noticed my pants were getting baggy on me. By the 2nd cycle I had to buy new clothes. By the 3rd cycle, I lost 8 pounds and went down a pant size. My strength increased and my other workouts seemed easier as well. Now only do I look and feel better, I lost weight also.

The STS is easy to follow and the one rep max made it even easier since I had all my weights already on my cards. If I needed to adjust my weight, I just logged on that day and printed out a new card. Then I had my weights adjusted for the next week. I feel better at 53 than I did at 33. My sister and I will start STS again this fall. Thanks cathe and now I look forward to your new DVDs of High

  1. Suzanne – you look absolutely amazing! I loved following the program with you…we had so much fun. I’m so happy you got the results you did! STS round 2 coming up in the fall 🙂

  2. You look do look amazing! Completely fit and beautiful, wait till you go through it again! Please thank your son for his service to our Country. It is so appreciated.

  3. you look terrific. What an accomplishment and encouragement to others, including me. I just finished STS meso 1 and can relate with the “baggy pants” syndrome. I am loving it. How great that your sis does it with you. I wish I could get someone close to me whom I love to join in with me.

  4. WOW! You look incredible. And 53 years old? No way. I don’t know what kind of calendar you use, but no way the Earth has revolved around the Sun 53 times with you on it.

    Congratulations on taking such great care of yourself!!

    As Nita says above, Thanks go to your son for his service and to you and your family for supporting him.

  5. I am in the middle of Mesocycle 2 and also can relate to baggy pants. Prior to STS, I am a P90X grad but find that the STS is much more fun to follow and the pump is super amazing. I am 56 and people say I look like I am in my 30’s, similar to you. You certainly have done an amazing job. Keep it up.

  6. You look fabulous!! I hope I look as good as you do at 53. I am just starting Mesocycle 1. I have a question for you. By now I’m thinking you’ve probably already began Mesocycle for the second time, right? Question….since it is your second time, where do you start? Do you start at the beginning or can you just pick up where you left off with Mesocycle 3?

    Than you very much for sharing.
