    More HIIT Cardio!

    I am desperate for more amazing cardio (preferably HIIT)! Due to back/sacrum issues, I can't do things that force me to curve my lower back forward (e.g. burpees, leaning forward to touch ground). Due to knee issues, I can't do step. The only cardio workouts I can do are Tabatacize, Cardio...

    Lift Move & Restore Equipment List?

    I see from the newsletter sent today that "balance discs" are required. Does each participant need more than one of the wobble discs?

    question about new Total Body Barbell

    Does the new Total Body Barbell workout include options for those of us with dumbells but no barbell?

    More Advanced Cardio (without step, weights, bending over)

    I own every single Cathe video that isn't exclusively step. I am desperate, however, for more cardio workouts. I want non-step workouts with no bending over where you have to flex the lower back--so squats, lunges, etc. are fine since you can keep your back flat but I've now properly thrown my...

    Will Cathe make more videos with the Boss Bands/Loops?

    Okay, thanks. I just buy the DVDs so I'll wait patiently to see if future videos include them.

    Does anybody on Cathe's staff know the answer?

    Question about Cathe's future use of 'boss bands,' lack of use of blue loop in Boss Bands.

    Yeah, to clarify--I never said or even implied that I thought exercise should "hurt" or make you feel "wiped out" or even make you "breathe hard."

    Will Cathe make more videos with the Boss Bands/Loops?

    Hi, there. Just wondering whether the Boss Bands were a one-time thing or if she plans to make more videos with them.

    More Perfect 30 Workouts

    I love the Perfect 30 videos, though unless they have a bonus, I do find them too short. So yes, more of them ... but always with a bonus to bump up to 40-45+ mins, please! I'd love another upper body weights workout and love the idea of a barre workout (for days when Turbo Barre is a bit...

    Another X-Train Series

    I second this. X-Train is my hands-down favourite series. BEST weight training and who doesn't love Tabatacize?

    Planks vs. Crunches

    Like the other commenter, I would recommend Stuart McGill (a fellow Canadian!). I've had multiple personal trainers and physiotherapists tell me (and other people I know) to never, ever do crunches. Planks, on the other hand, they're wild about. Crunches put tons of pressure on the spring...

    Question about Cathe's future use of 'boss bands,' lack of use of blue loop in Boss Bands.

    I was a little disappointed that I bought the new bands/loops and then the blue loop was never used in the loop video. That, paired with the fact that I didn't find either video especially challenging (Glutes and Core will be okay for low energy days, I guess, but the Total Body one won't be of...

    Hula Hoops

    Are hula hoops actually especially good for mid-section strengthening or is it more of a gimmick/trend?

    Fave workout clothes?

    I'm happy to report that the Fiona (my favorite low-impact sports bra, hands down) is still made. Brooks bought Moving Comfort; just go to the Brooks Running website and you'll find Fiona. Also, I have a large chest for my size and I've tried EVERY kind of super-supportive sports bra. People...

    Boss Bands Difficulty Level? Like/unlike other band workouts?

    Great! Would you mind directing me to said post? Thanks for the helpful response, btw. I adore Cathe and workout 'with' her every single day for a reason: her work is unparalleled. I was asking because it is an investment for me to get all the new stuff and I wanted to be sure it was a good...

    Latex content of bands and loops

    How different are the fabric bands from plain old latex? Do they function much differently (not feel, but function)? I am wondering if I need to invest in the fabric ones or not since I have non-fabric latex bands/loops.

    Boss Resistance Bands work your muscles in a very different way than free weights do

    Can you explain whether these new workouts will be significantly different than the other two band workouts (Travel Fit and Body Weight & Bands)? I am wondering what to expect in terms of challenge and thoroughness. Thanks!

    Turbo Barre 2.0

    I would also love another Turbo Barre-esque workout. Ballet workouts, done properly (i.e. Cathe-style) always kill me (in a good way).
