This week, when I return from vacation, I'll start an 8-week Cathe Challenge.
Earlier this year, when I learned that FitnessGlo was going down, I started investigating other streaming workout sites. I knew that Cathe streamed workouts but I had to investigate her site more before I fully understood what she offered.
There are two options:
1. Stream Live workouts from her gym.
2. OnDemand access to all of Cathe's DVDs.
*If you purchase the OnDemand package, you also gain access to the Live workouts.
My one gripe with Cathe's DVDs is that they require too much equipment - and to many are step workouts. So I was not inclined to try the OnDemand option. It's also quite a bit more expensive than just doing the Live workouts.
The Streaming Live workouts cost $10/month. That's not bad. That's what I'm paying for The Gymbox. To get me started, I asked for a gift card to the site, which I used to purchase a 6-month Live plan. Cool!
Cathe's Streaming Live workouts are more appealing than her DVDs - to me, anyways. She's more personable and she gives you water breaks. Amazing. So far, my one gripe (and I've only done two workouts but perused the site extensively), is that 75% of the workouts, if not more, require weights. That's all good and fine but you can't do weights every day. At max, you can do weights three times a week.
Given this knowledge, I think Cathe's Streaming Live workouts will compliment my subscription to The Gymbox, which has more cardio and less cardio/weight integrated workouts - which is what Cathe has too much of. They seem to be a good pair to subscribe to together.
We'll see! Stay tuned!
