    Programs you've always wanted to do, but have never done.

    Top three for me, in this order are: 1. Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide - always want to, but never do, a perennial favorite. 2. Dasha Libin's Kettlebell Kickboxing - Body Series, Scorcher, and 7-Day lean, any or all, haven't done any of hers. 3. Lauren Brooks Be SLAM - Catch myself wanting to...

    Look what's for Breakfast!

    I fell pretty far off the healthy food truck for a while, not proud of it but, as a goal, thinking it's time for a comeback. I flooded myself with Healthy food blogs & exposés, like Hungry for Change, and finally got some much needed motivation. Today's breakfast looked like this (I boiled the...

    Best of 2015

    Winners & losers for 2015? What are your favorites from this year, or new to you this year? After discovering Zumba this year, I'd have to say that was the big winner, even though now they have the stocking stuffer size boxes at the big box store, glad I found it when I did. Back later with a...

    Strong Lifts 5 X 5 or Starting Strength Aficionados?

    Anyone ever follow either of these protocols for barbell training? Always seems like such an efficient way to strength train. If so, what were your results over time? Every so often I find myself drawn to pure lifting systems, not for bulk or body building, just sheer strength.

    Wondering if any of our Canadian Cathletes have tried out Bodyshred at a gym? Anyone interested in teaching Bodyshred classes? Any one in the USA? I'm on week five of the DVD program, I've never taken fitness classes at a club but this one, if it's similar to the DVds, would be a goodie. I...

    Power of 10 - How slow can you go?

    I've recently been inspired by the practice of slow lifting, has anyone done this type of regime for an extended period of time, I'm thinking it would go great with body weight calisthenics or even yoga. I was looking for something to pair with yoga, mainly because it takes a long time for yoga...

    Dasha Libin - 7 Day Lean

    I haven't tried any of the Kettlebell Kickboxing, a little too frenetic for me ATM, I do think this new series is very interesting with all the mobility & bodyweight exercises, I'm about as bendy as a pitchfork. Thoughts? Yay or nay.

    Topic - Favorite warm ups. One poster said she always wished Cathe would put out a DVD of just her warm ups, they're the best. I like them too. That would make a terrific greatest hits DVD. Cathe's warm ups. I agree, even when I'm doing other workouts it would be great to have DVD with...

    Lean Legs & Abs + bonus barre premix - Review

    This clocks in at just over 60 minutes, but it really didn't seem that long at all. Great warm up hitting the legs with lots of angles and light moves like you'll do in the workout. Starting with the compound legs banner, right into overhead press and squat, forward lean lunges, back...
