Hi Panariqua, it is my first RT too- where are you coming from?
I'm coming in from NC. And nervous, hence the posted at 3am EST, and am recovering from a recent cold.
I have come to love Cathe step- To the Max, X77 (step portion the first one) has good solid step that I was able to start last year and ease into other step routines. I am in love with Party Rockin Step 2, IMAX step (and the intervals somewhat, haha), and a lot of others. If you are a member of Cathe Live- there are several recorded ones since May I've used to help learn traditional moves I was not familiar with; one from the Live is from the July RT, it is a good workout about 45 min and pure fun....my current fav step is Step blast- it took me 75 min the first time to get through it (rewind over and over) - but once I did, I totally loved it.
Oh, and the 40/20 and 30/30 have good athletic type step - good workouts too- I've not done those in a few months.....also, I have used the OnDemand and completed older step from the late 90's and early 2000's to help with learning Cathe moves.
I'm on the opposite spectrum, I've not had the luxury to do the heavier lifting....yet; that is my goal for the rest of 2014/2015- need to invest in heavier weights and esp for the new Ripped with Hiit I'm super excited about.
I was wondering too what kind of classes would be done on the RT- I guess we will find out soon enough. I'm wearing running shoes to the RT instead of my usual cross trainers due to the recent need for more cushioning (over 40 I guess that is what happens) so hoping I can still pivot and not trip too many times!
Have safe travels!!! Kimberly
