    Cathe equipment/ accessories /a game changer!!!

    I have bought Cathe accessories over the years ( Fire walker loops, bands, discs) but the barbell pad is a game changer! I have been using a pad I bought from a big box store 20 years ago, struggling with it through many programs with heavy barbell weight, including the first 4 weeks of STS 2.0...

    STS 2.0 Basic Rotation

    Agree!! I also review each workout and put each workout into an excel spreadsheet ( I prefer my own style of workout sheets) I don't anticipate starting 2.0 until the 2nd week in June and I am OK with that because I like to know how each workout is structured and have my weight selections ready.

    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

    I have been teaching for 11 years and have found that there is always someone in the class willing to be the "counter" because I tend to add more reps if someone isn't keeping track. while I am very "even" in my counts side to side, I tend to say " You are doing so good let's add some more!" or...

    Getting Older

    I am 52 and in the throes of menopause. Despite eating super clean, exercising hard and trying to get a good nights sleep, my middle is expanding at a slow and steady rate, my jawline is starting to sag and my memory is foggy at times. I am very lucky to be healthy and have a fabulous family and...

    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...
