Cathe Live: Fit Tower Tone & Tighten

I have been away from Cathe Live for a long time. I did plan to return sooner than this but life got in the way. But then Cathe started selling downloads of her live workouts.

Step Boss: PHA 3

PHA 3 is part of Cathe's new workout series Step Boss. The other two DVDs in this series are Step Sync and Imax 4. Cathe also created a Quick Start Users Guide to accompany this series.

HIIT Workout With Weights // 20 Minute Full Body Workout

HIIT Workout With Weights is another intense metabolic strength workout from Heather Robertson. This workout really builds. I was (as usual when doing Heather's workouts) working very hard.

I did this as a doubles workout and … Continue reading HIIT Workout With Weights // 20 Minute Full Body Workout
