    Hi everyone! I hope all of you are doing well and haven't eaten too much Halloween candy yesterday and today. :9 Myself, I had four pieces after trick-or-treating with my 5 year old, and I refuse to feel bad about it. I had one of each of my favorites: junior mints, peanut M&M's, Mr...

    Kimberly Spreen workout DVDs

    Hi all. I am curious if anyone here has tried Kimberly's new workout, Amplify Your Strnegth From Within. I am trying to determine if this is something that would interest me. The 60 second clip on collagevideo.com doesn't show much. Is this workout basically a yoga type program? Would you...

    Websites

    Hi ladies. I am curious if any of you can recommend some good websites with info on infant care, such as forums or articles on finding the right formula for your newborn, how to get a newborn to sleep through the night, etc. Basically I am looking for websites for new moms where you can help...

    Pregnancy DVDs

    Hi everyone. For all the mamas-to-be here, I have an offer. I just had my son about 3 weeks ago and have two pregnancy workouts on DVD that I am wanting to get rid of. I do not plan on having a third child, so I don't need them. And if they can be of use to someone else, I would rather that...

    HSC vs HST

    I am curious about these two workouts. Which is better? Are there positives to one or the other that make it a better purchase? I can tell that HST would fall behind HSC because it doesn't include an ab section, but I can always add on. Which do you recommend and why? Thanks in advance for...

    PUB/PLB

    I just got PUB/PLB in the mail. I am excited to use it. What is everyone's favorite parts about the workout? Are there good premixes that I should try which combine both workouts? Any premixes that do that in an hour? I didn't know where to find a list of the premixes on this workout. I am...

    Issues with SB and C&W

    I did SB this morning, and for the second time in recent weeks, it got stuck around the 44:00 mark. This is right after we finished the first blast in the blast challenge and we are starting to review the earlier choreography again. I couldn't get it working, so I had to skip to blast #3 and...

    Step, Jump and Pump 2

    I vote for a second SJP style workout. I love that one. It's fun and the time flies by. The only thing I would change is make it a bit longer, for instance in the initial step segment. I love the combination of a good short, cardio workout first, then a hi-lo and weight circuit. I hope...

    Re: Amy Bento

    I am not sure if this is an appropriate question for a Cathe forum or not. (Can we talk about other instructors here?) But I was wondering if anyone here has done workouts by Amy Bento? If so, how does she compare to Cathe?

    Pregnancy modifications

    I asked this question on the Ask Cathe forum, but have yet to get a response from Cathe. So, I thought I would ask it here and see what my experienced friends would have to say. I am about 16 weeks pregnant, and know that I should not do abdominal exercises lying supine on the floor...

    Pregnancy Modifications

    Hi Cathe, I know you have a pregnancy forum, but I hope it's all right that I posted these questions here. I was hoping to get your personal answer to these. I am about 16 weeks pregnant, and know that I should not do abdominal exercises lying supine on the floor anymore. I've been...

    Push Pull and KPC comments

    Hi all. I did Push Pull yesterday and noticed that I have trouble doing the inner thigh work with the stability ball. I can't seem to keep the ball between my knees and ankles without it wanting to roll away. Perhaps I am using too big a ball? But I picked mine based onmy height, 5'6". I...

    Question about clothes in BM2

    I ordered the Oh My Bod brown/turqouise roll down pants from Sharon at Active You, but they are entirely too tight around my thighs. I thought they'd be tight around my middle (my problem area), but I guess since my legs are strong and muscular, these pants just don't fit me right. My question...
