Wow NewLJones! I'm impressed that your FIST Cathe workout was BodyMax 2. I remember when I discovered Cathe 5 or 6 years ago. I had a gym membership for a while than my husbands work quit paying for that so I went back to my Firm workouts. When I discovered Cathe I only ordered a few workouts but then a bought or traded for almost everything else within a few weeks. My hubby got me a 5 disc DVD player so I could make up my own workouts from up to 5 of her workout...creative mish moshes, so to speak. Now, I've discovered many other advanced instructors that I like. I feel like I can get as good of a workout at home as I do in the gym. Welcome to cathe. www.cathe.com has a lot of rotation ideas and such! Anyway, welcome to the world of Cathe!!! Edited to come back and say, I saw the post on Amy Bento and I agree...she is one of the best also. Her choreography is a bit more complex than Cathe and her music usually rocks!

Hello everyone, This week was my first week ever working out with a Cathe Friedrich's workout. I bought BODY MAX 2 and GYM STYLE BACK, SHOULDERS & BICEPS online. The best instructor I've seen, the most motivational. She makes you want to get up and work out. Body Max 2 is also my motivational music for the day. I put on the DVD while I am tidying the house and I finish my chores faster. It is almost impossible for me to buy someone else's workout now. I'm sold and I'm hooked. I LOST 2 LBS THIS WEEK FROM USING HER WORKOUT. I was at a plateau before that. I have most of her moves narrowed down except for a few, and I have to learn more of the names. I didnt attempt the ''cross country'' until the 4th workout. I have the ''knee around the world'' down to a T. But there is a move I simply can't get yet. I havent caught the name of it yet. AND THE WAY SHE SAYS ''ROCK BACK, AGAIN'' man I love it. It was one of the reasons I chose this workout. I know you must be fedup of me going on and on about cathe but I have to say this too. I didnt think you could look more beautiful in your 40's than u did in your early 30's but she has proven me wrong. Cathe Friedrich is a beautiful woman and I find her better looking now than she was in her very early workouts. I mean to work hard to look like she does when I get her age....... LJ
