    22 MINUTE HARD CORPS

    I bought this program when it came out in March- really enjoyed it. The sandbag is not essential and although I have used sandbags for other workouts (BodyRock Bootcamps) I didn't like it for these workouts- I just used a dumbbell. Workouts are 22 minutes long with simple and very effective...

    Question on creating a workout

    For those of you doing Insanity or have done it

    I agree with Shannon 110% I have done the 60 day Insanity program several times and never felt like doing additional weight lifting. Insanity did more for my cardio endurance than any other exercise regimen while maintaining the strength gains I had made with P90X and STS. That being said...

    Mammogram update

    Hi Pam I will keep you in my prayers. What a scary thing to go through!! I am a radiation therapist (29 years) and a negative ultrasound is a wonderful sign for sure. I would definitely breath a sigh of relief. In my experience, careful "watchful oversight" is fabulous for detecting any...

    What was your first Cathe workout video?

    My first DVD was KickMax and I found it in the Collage catalog (2005 or 06 I believe) As with other Cathletes, that is all it took to leave the Firm's videos behind and start my Cathe obsession. I think I have everything but the wedding video and the her 2 earliest workouts in DVD or download...
