Welcome to the Wonderful World of Wacky Catheletes.

WE ARE NOT ALONE ~

I have concluded that as a daily exerciser that does not want to get bored with my workouts - my Cathe Collection is way more valuable than other people's daily cup of Starbucks...
AND WAY LESS EXPENSIVE.

We are ill - in a good way emoticon

That's a lot of money and a lot of workouts. =)

A good friend of mine just this week told me I was a hoarder! He said there is no way i can possibly do all the workouts I own in a year (true) and it is pointless to own that many (probably). This actually put me into a funk, because if my house were to start on fire, for "stuff" I'd grab my computer, my photos.....and my DVDs. :p

I can only do low impact now, so I really need to part with many Cathes. I'm finding that difficult to do, so they sit on the shelf. I could never do her step well anyway, I prefer more straight-forward athletic step--Gin Miller's Simply Step is my favorite step workout.

If I had to limit my Cathe collection, it would be the Low Impact series, Xtrain, the 8 series of which I have Flex Train, Great Glutes and X10 coming for Christmas, and the only DVDs I got from Ripped which are low impact Hiit and upper body circuit. I'd add High Step Training, and her first two "easy" steps. That could last me a year. Add in Atletica 1 & 2, some of the old FIRMs--that's all I need. But noooooooo, I have hundreds of DVDs. ha ha

Right now all I want to do is Cathe. I love what she has put out from the Low Impact series on. I also have Cathe Live and love her low impact Hard Strikes. Cathe is just awesome and I love her professoinalism, her kindness, and her work!

Me too ~


Here is the current Discount Bundle for ALL the workouts.
What a deal.....but, I'm glad I purchased them separately - as I could afford.
Probably spent way more than this, but it didn't hit my purse all at one time.

Word has it that Santa is bringing X10 to me. Flex Train is right now my favorite workout. We all know that changes with mood, but I love it! Enjoy your new workouts!

My gym is going to be overflowing with new Cathe's.
Last week I had a $50.00 gift certificate at Amazon.com...and ordered 5 DVD's from last year.
I already had the two party rockin' step workouts...I love the instrumental option.
so I ordered:
X10
Flex Train
Great Glutes
Lean Legs & Abs
and Great Hits Vol 1

Last year I had mistakenly decided to not order any more workouts - from anyone.
Well, that didn't last long and last year I did order all of the Physique 57 workouts - which I love...and am now obtaining the above workouts that I missed from Cathe.
Grateful that with my gift certificate I obtained them for about the price I would have spent had I pre-ordered.
And RIPPED w/ HIIT will have lots of company.

This morning I did Lower Body Blast (from 2010)
I will probably not be walking tomorrow. emoticon

Week #5 (see my blog)

Doing so well at revisiting the plan that worked for me in the past for so many years.
"New Science" is about as changing as the winds they blow in on.
Sticking with what works for me..... emoticon

Love Cathe Circuits.
They keep me interested and keep my body in a constant state of change.
I am really liking doing only two workouts a week.
Never thought I would, but I am
This week is HIGH REPS and HIIT PYRAMID DOUBLE WAVE.
I don't fly - so am modifying the Pyramid by doing things that are similar, but on the floor.
GREAT SWEAT ~

I'm doing something different ....
Over the next 8 weeks I am doing Cathe Circuits (or premixes that are circuits) alternating days with cardio ... taking Sabbath off.

I am only doing ONE circuit workout and ONE cardio workout per week.
I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT.
I am actually liking it.
I thought I would be bored.....but, NO..... by the third workout of the week I know the next moves and am enjoying it MORE.
Imagine that? emoticon

Hello. I need to lose about 20 pounds before my daughter's wedding in May. I have cleaned up my diet and am doing a version of Cathe's 16-week maximum weight loss rotation. I have been doing Cathe workouts for a long, long time and have have them all. Yesterday I did Power Max and today I will do IMAX. I'm finding these older workouts refreshing after doing Xtrain and the newest 2013 workouts.

I'm doing it for two weeks the end of this month.

I think I will do the full X-Train / Low Impact rotation next year -- after I finish the Long Run of STS. That will be my longest commitment for a workout rotation EVER.
But, I really want to give it a try. Those workouts are just too good to rush through.
I've done the 3month rotation a number of times .... it feels wonderful.

I was reading the X-Train rotations and think that the XT/LI one will suit me just fine ~

Wishing you the emoticon of Success ~

After reading the reviews thus far ..... I could emoticon myself for not making the PRESALE PURCHASE.

I've been a pre-orderer for the last 10 years.
WHAT WAS I THINKING ??????
If I pay for the three workouts on my wish list - I could have paid for the entire set.

PROOF that it is never a mistake to pre-order.

So grateful for all the reviews ~

Hi Gang. I have been using Cathe for about 16 years now. Just got the new DVD's in the mail. I wrote up my own 30day program using them and start tomorrow with Rockout Knockout. I love kickbox and after previewing I know this will be one of my faves. I have been side lined with a torn achilles for the past 2 months so it'll feel awesome getting my groove back! ~ Susan

Just tried Rockout Knockout. emoticon OMG...this is a killer 55 minute workout. I torched 473 calories. This one is tougher than Xtrain's kickboxing workout. The combos are really tough.

WELL, I must say -- I think I might have made a HUGE MISTAKE....

In the spring I did NOT preorder the new 8 workouts for ... like $79.00
because I didn't particularly care for the last two sets Low Impact / X-Train.
I figured I had enough of the other Cathe ones (all of them in fact)....and would just be happy with them.
Well..... I've been previewing the new workouts and think that I could have really done well to have pre-ordered.

I did get the Party Rockin Step workouts at a discount ... both for $19.00.
After previewing -- I will be adding a few others to my wish list for future purchase.

Great Glutes
Lean Legs & Abs
and possibly Flex Train.

SIGH.... at the regular price.

The beauty of Cathe is that she can be modified to suit everyone's needs.
Lighter weights, lower step, no step, bands....it's all adjustable to suit one's needs.

I've been doing 4+ Cathe's a week. Wonderful.
Every Friday is PUB (Pyramid Upper Body).
For the last 4 weeks I've been using lighter weights (for me)
The next 4 weeks I will be adding 1# wrist weights.to every exercise, in STS style.
I can't believe how weak I've gotten over the last three years.
12# biceps curls are very difficult - doable, but MAN - drain me out.
I intend to take the next 4 weeks and focus on upping these weights toward Cathe Strong.

Wish me SUCCESS ~

Thanks FitArtist and Lamoura for the recommendations.

FitArtist - I think I may have a couple of those Cathe DVDs you mentioned (I will have to look through my very large assortment that I recently purchased - ha ha).

Lamoura - just watched the youtube link you provided - wow! Kind of reminds me of Turbo Jam and/or Turbo Fire (Chalene Johnson) with some of those moves. I may have to look it up on collagevideo.com -

thank you both for your input!

Since I also have knee issues and a bruised heel, I have been loving the All Out Low Impact HiiT, Supercuts, and I do the Less Impact premixes from CrossFire and Too The Max.
I also like Low Max. If it's too hard on the knee it can be done on a 6 inch (instead of an 8 inch) step.
Turbo Barre is great for legs and so is the KickMax lo impact timesaver premix. It includes the leg conditioning drills at the end.
I also like some of her older dvdd like Low Impact Step
Basic Step and Body Fusion has some great bonus workouts on it too. 20 minutes Upper Body, 20 Minute Lower Body and a 20 minute Abs workout. All can be made more difficult or easier by adjusting the weight. I like the lower body workout. There are a few squats and lunges, but then you do mostly floor work with resistance tubing.

After purchasing XTrain during the May sale (and other Cathe DVDs) I finally started using them. Ha ha. I had reinjured my left knee so it was a while before it dawned on me that I could work out my upper body. I started with the Burn Sets-Shoulders, etc., and then last night did the Cardio Leg Blast. I modified all of the cardio segments and didn't do most of the leg exercises due to so many lunges which I'm still having a hard time doing.

Any recommendations on Cathe DVDs that may have a great leg strength workout but less stress on the knees? I love her style of teaching and while I can do the squats, step ups and some of the other chapters, I wondered if she had another DVD that would be better suited for my leg strengthening. Thanks!

I'm alternating two of Cathe workouts: Supercuts and All Out Low Impact HiiT.
I'm following a Paleo diet. So tons of meat and veggies for me!

I'm currently doing a BFL-Style Challenge.
Started 07-14-13 ... will end round #1 on Oct 5th.

Will take a rest week - then right into BFL-Style Challenge #2 which will take me into 2014
10-13-13 thru 01-04-14

Excited for change ~

I'm doing Cathe for all upper body workouts; some cardio; and for lower body - Cathe leg conditioning with Physique 57. No lifting of weights for lower body.
I'm going for definition, not bulk.

Meals are Vegan 4x/d
08:00a BREAKFAST - fruit / grain based
12:00p Lunch - legume / salad
04:00p Supper - veggie / grain based
08:00p Snack - fruit / nut

This is my second week and I've lost a few pounds, but the best part is that I am feeling WONDERFUL. As a result, I end up doing more throughout the day, which is the ultimate goal of fitness -- to make life easier so we can enjoy more.

Striving for the best ME I can be..... emoticon

You're welcome.

I think counter pushups define the deltoids better as well....at least, for me.
Probably because I am using the right muscles when I am not having wrist pain during the exercise.

WIN/WIN....love those outcomes ~

Donna,
I started doing COUNTER-PUSHUPS a few years ago. Regular on the floor type are impossible for me (scoliosis limiting)...even on my knees...and my wrists hurt in that position.
BUT, I discovered that I can do pushups off my kitchen counter. Perfect height.
Stand facing the counter.
Step a good 2-3ft back from the counter.
Lean forward with hands on the edge of counter (mine is rounded which is a PLUS)
PUSH UP

I do 10 every time I go into the kitchen. By the end of the day I've completed over 60.

Triceps pushups are easy in the same way -- only reversed.

Let me know how you love it.

Hello to all Cathe fans.

I have started STS and I quickly learned that even on my knees I can only manage a fraction of her pushups- Yikes (of course I have 220ish pounds to lift). I hope that that improves quickly.

Lori- I imagine that would be fun (to put the workouts together) and take a great deal of time. I look forward to the next BLC round.

Well, off to a workout. Have a great week!
