Cathe Live

cathelive-landingIf you are only interested in Cathe Live workout reviews, click here to go directly to the reviews. To go directly to the Best of Cathe Live lists, click here. To go directly to Cathe Live Rotations, click here.

I created this page because, unlike the majority of the other reviews on this blog, Cathe Live workouts are not available via Amazon or other retailers. Cathe Live is streaming–so no DVDs. The only way you get them is through Cathe’s website. And it’s not free like the YouTube workouts I review. It is $9.97 a month. But you get more than 300 workouts! You can also purchase individual live workouts via download for $9.97 a piece. Tho they appear and are categorized on my blog like any other workout I do, they are also compiled here for easier access. The date before the name of the workout is the date the workout aired live. I also break them down into type of workout, give the length and how long special segments are (things like core work). (Now that they are all available via download, they have numbers. At some point I will go through all of my earlier reviews and add their number as well as link to the workout in case you want to purchase the download–but this is a work in progress! There are over 100 reviews to update. Today is 01/17/20 and I haven’t even started that project yet!)

I used to have a lot more written here but it was relevant to me when I did the workouts several years ago. But I am older and different now so I deleted most of it. What is written below is what I kept. Now that I am returning to Cathe Live the summary may change again.

Below I’ve done my best to break the workouts down by type, but I’m not perfect. Some—particularly in the Metabolic and Cardio + Strength categories were close and I had a hard time deciding which section to put them. But I decided to go by the primary thrust of the workout. If lifting heavy enough to get a good strength workout then I put it in Cardio + Strength. If it seemed more cardio focused and the dumbbell work was more of the metabolic conditioning variety that was used primarily to elevate the heart rate, then it went under Metabolic. However, all of the Cardio + Strength workouts are also metabolic. But IMHO, the workouts that I place under the Metabolic category do not also double as my strength workout (for my purposes), which is why I felt the need to separate them.

I have also created more pages on this blog to make things more functional. This also makes searching for specific types of Cathe Live workouts easier. Check out the Workout Types page. Listed on that page are different categories of workout types. Cathe Live workouts are included under nearly every type of workout. So just click on the workout type you are interested in and scroll until you see Cathe Live workouts. I have grouped workouts together–all Cathe Live workouts in each category are grouped together, all Barlates workouts are grouped together, etc. I have also created Top 10 Lists related to the Workout Types categories. Since Cathe Live workouts are excellent, the are of course featured in many of the lists.

Where to Start?

I do understand that approaching Cathe Live for the first time is overwhelming. She has so many workouts! So I have created some lists for someone new to Cathe Live. Keep in mind, these are based on my own opinion. I have to add there have probably only been a handful of Cathe’s Live workouts I haven’t cared for so they are all excellent workouts but, in my opinion, the workouts listed below are her best. Because some of these excellent workouts fall under more than one category, you will see some workouts listed multiple times.
