I am 36
years old and haven´t properly worked out since P.E at school (i.e 20 years
ago!) I have never been slim and take after my mother who is overweight.
I got the more kilos I would gain and I´d just buy a size bigger and say ´hey,
this is how I am´ My weight went up to 78 kilos, I started to become unhappy
about it , it was especially depressing because I love clothes & fashion
and many of my clothes were becoming snug. I´d go out and buy more but knew I
had tons of clothes……just many that didn´t fit!
pregnant with my first daughter last year and my weight went up to 92 kilos. I
had a C-section and as soon as my Dr gave me the green light I started
I hate the gym, I find it so intimidating. A friend of mine told me about working
out at home and gave me a Leslie Sansone DVD that was really light, using very
light weights (I was using 1.5 and 2 kilos) I was hooked! I worked out 4/5
times a week.
Then I got
hooked on Turbo Jam and have bought all the DVDs through Total Fitness, next
came Kathy Smith and Karen Voight, Gin Miller and Amy Bento to name a few
of my DVDs stopped challenging me and I plateaued, I knew I had to take it up a
notch so I ordered Cathe´s Hardcore Gym Style DVDs (Legs, Chest/triceps and
Back, shoulders, biceps) wow! I was hooked from the second I started, ooo those
Bonus Burns!!!! I then ordered Slow & Heavy, words cannot describe how much
these DVDs have changed my body! Then came Butts and Gutts, anyone who has
tried this DVD needs no introduction! For the first time I have definition in
my abs . I thought I was stuck with flabby inner thighs, not after those
walking lunges and fire walkers! wow!
I took the
plunge and ordered some of Cathe´s Step DVDs after watching clips again and
again. I ordered Drill Max, Body Max 2, 4 Day Split, all I can say is with these DVDs, who needs the
gym!!! I feel like I´m going to die, but
when Cathe says things like ´I don´t care what you look like, just gimme some!´
(4 day split Kickbox!) It makes me carry on.
year and a half later after I started working out, I weight 65 kilos! A whole
13 kilos less than before I fell pregnant!
I have a fitter, tighter body than I did 20 years ago! I started using 1.5/2 kilos,
now I use dumbbells of 10/12 kilos. I surprise myself (and my husband) with how
far I have come-
The other day I gave away a big bag of clothes, clothes that no longer fit
because they are too big! It was hard but also felt good, besides, I know that
with my workout DVDs, I´ll NEVER fit into them again!
ago I received my STS DVDs, I plan to start 2010 with a 3 month STS cycle,
I have no doubt that this fantastic series will help me even further with my
