Cathe’s Step Blast

Step Blast is a 55 minute cardio step workout; 6 minute warm up, 45 minute cardio step and 4 minute stretch. You need an 6 inch step for this workout. Step Blast is part of a multi-workout DVD. The other workout on this DVD is Step, Pump & Jump which will be reviewed separately. I wanted … Continue reading Cathe’s Step Blast


Cathe’s Cardio Fusion

Cardio Fusion is another one of Cathe’s compilation workouts. She has four of these compilations and what they really are is premixes of 3 or more workouts. Her other compilation collections include: Terminator, Hardcore Extreme and Timesaver from the Body Blast series. Since I adore Cathe’s premixes, I love her compilation DVDs. It’s very cool, … Continue reading Cathe’s Cardio Fusion

Cathe’s Cardio & Weights

Cardio & Weights is another intermediate level cardio + strength workout from Cathe. It works well as a recovery workout. It’s not intense, but neither is it easy. It is a solid workout and it is a lot of fun. It also has a challenging abdominal section. This workout, in fact, seems rather reminiscent of The … Continue reading Cathe’s Cardio & Weights

Cathe’s Low Impact Circuit

Low Impact Circuit is a low impact cardio + strength workout and it was just what I needed this morning after brutalizing myself with Maximum Intensity Cardio yesterday. I really, really liked this workout a lot. First, I have to say that it is not as hard as most Cathe workouts that I own, but … Continue reading Cathe’s Low Impact Circuit

Cathe’s Maximum Intensity Cardio

What can I say except WOW. I am stunned by this workout. It was originally released on VHS in 1998. I didn’t know they had workouts like this back in 1998. Heck, I was doing Buns of Steel and riding a stationary bike for exercise. This workout is HARD. Much harder than I expected. Maximum … Continue reading Cathe’s Maximum Intensity Cardio

Cathe’s Athletic Step

Atheltic Step is a cardio workout that is part of Cathe’s Shock Cardio series. These workouts were created to compliment STS, which is her 3 month intense weight training program. I find this series a little odd. I found the section on Cathe’s website where she initially introduced this series. It explained that the idea … Continue reading Cathe’s Athletic Step

Cathe’s Muscle Endurance

Just like Bootcamp, I am updating and rewriting the Muscle Endurance review. It was the second review I wrote for this blog (posted 4/20/12) and like I mentioned in the new Bootcamp review, I knew what I wanted, but I clearly hadn’t achieved it in those two reviews. However, I am leaving them up--so if … Continue reading Cathe’s Muscle Endurance

Cathe’s Interval Max

Interval Max is the first in Cathe’s Imax series. There are two more after this one—Imax 2 and Imax 3. These are tough workouts. They are all basically very long HIIT workouts. I really, really like this workout. It was tough and exhausting and rather impressive, considering Interval Max came out in 1999. Before I … Continue reading Cathe’s Interval Max

Cathe’s Body Max 2

Holy cow! What a workout! Body Max 2 is 97 minutes of EVERYTHING. This workout is no joke! Cardio, HIITs, total body strength work and intense abdominal work. Cathe has created a monster cardio + strength workout. I am in awe. Obviously, at 97 minutes, I will not be able to do the full workout … Continue reading Cathe’s Body Max 2

Cathe’s Cross Train Express

Cross Train Express is another of Cathe’s “systems.” She has a few. Specifically 4 Day Split and STS, though any of her series can be used as a system. However, Cross Train Express (CTX) is sold only as a system—which is also how 4 Day Split and STS are sold, meaning you cannot purchase the … Continue reading Cathe’s Cross Train Express
