    A nice compliment at the gym

    It's funny, I was just reading through the facebook thread... I am not that active on here, but the reason I came on today was because I wanted to share a story that my facebook friends wouldn't necessarily appreciate :) So I was at the gym this morning, and you know how you see someone...

    walmart step

    Hi everyone. My mom watched me do Body Max 2 the other day and now she really wants to start doing Cathe's step workouts, but she is a total beginner. She used to run when she was much younger, but hasn't exercised at all in a long time. We were at Wal-Mart last night, and they had the...
