Like or hate Beachbody, it was P90X (for which I paid full price for the DVDs) that got me back into working out again after a long off and on hiatus. Just sayin.
I have a lot of Cathe, but I have a lot of other DVD's/subscriptions as well. Quite frankly, I can't do too long of one instructor forever (including Cathe), and I find I need to mix it up. Don't get me wrong, I have been working out with Cathe since Pure Strength and Maximum Body Strength (? not sure of the title anymore, but it was on VHS and not available anymore), but I can't just do Cathe every day. (at last count, I think I have about 1500 workout DVDs that I rotate) To me, you have to take Beachbody for what it is worth. Clearly they are a marketing enterprise first, but they have still given me a refreshing break with new ideas, new instructors, and some fun like Country Heat. They have enough variety that you can pick and choose what works for you. There is much to criticize about Beachbody, but there are also a few alternative workout perspectives that I have enjoyed and appreciate. Can't bring myself to totally dis them.
