I know Cathe has a "Gym style chest and triceps" workout and that would use a bench. Her DVDs are hard core - I tried one the other day and my shoulders are still sore. The cardio one I did was so hard I thought I would die and I consider myself pretty fit :roll:
Anyway, back to the topic, the australian website where you can check out her range is

I know guys use them too because you can use as heavy a weight as you want. She's pretty tough and not too girly :wink:
And all the exercises are ones that men normally do in the gym eg. bench press, flyes etc etc.
I dont know how much DVDs usually cost but I thought $34 was about average?? I checked out the american webpage andthey were heaps more expensive. And the good thing about her DVDs is that she has heaps of different premixes and extras. I sound like an advertisement but I really admire her physique and strength - check out her delts!!

Oh, forgot to add that they are not just an hour workout - and there is a menu where you can pick a shorter workout or a longer workout or just the bits you want.

Yeah that's about average price for a workout DVD, Liz! You can get some real cheapies from like JB Hifi but theyre usually pretty rubbish!

Which cardio one did you do Liz? Did it have steps?

I don't have a step at the moment and I noticed a lot of the DVD's seem to have steps in them. May look into getting one but not right away and I am definitely gonna get one of the pump style DVD's but any info on the cardio stuff would be great.

I havent checked them all out yet but the one I did which was mostly cardio did use a bit of step too. It was Imax 3 I think. I'm embarrassed to say I couldnt do it all :oops: :oops: I had to keep stopping it was so hard. On the site you can see which ones need equipment - have you seen the other ones (Amy Bento, Tracy Staehle) they may be (not sure) just cardio without a step - I think there's a kickboxing one.
I'm pretty sure the steps you can get from Kmart or wherever arent the full size proper step and thats why they're so cheap. I got mine from a place in oakleigh that sells legitimate reebok steps and I think I paid about $100? They also had cheaper ones (not reebok brand) for about $80-90 but they're the proper big ones. I know its a bit expensive but I've seen them other places heaps more. Sometmes people sell their second hand ones on ebay. I think there's also a place in Altona or somewhere out there that sells ex gym equipment - might be worth a look. Perhaps you can make you own out of something sturdy (ie. not phonebooks)?
Hope that helps
Liz :)

I just did Jillian Michael's Biggest Winner Cardio Kickboxing!! I had one break for 3 mins to catch my breath, but otherwise went straight through, I'm so proud!
A great workout, its fun and not cheesy, and its only 25 mins, 30 including warm-down so you dont get bored or too buggered :D
Life is too important to be taken seriously!

Hello there,

I'm the "other Liz" that your "Liz" (bluebox) was mentioning. I sell the Cathe DVDs. The Gym Style Series can be used by both men and women and replicate very well the workout you get at a gym, but at home. I originally started using Cathe DVDs after the birth of my second baby when I couldn't get to the gym and more recently when my husband and I moved to a remote location that doesn't have a gym.

They may seem expensive but on each DVD there are Premixes which mix the workout in many different ways. For example on Amy Bento's All PUmp workout which is similar to a Body Pump class, there are 10 different workouts on the one DVD which is a very reasonable $24.95.

I currently accept credit cards through Paypal (you don't have to have an account to operate), direct debit (I send you the details) and Money Order/Cheque.

I am very happy to answer any questions you may have about the DVDs before you buy them (so you can get the DVD best suited to your needs), and to answer any questions you have about fitness DVDs in general.

I will warn you that I will be closed for the next week as I am moving house, but am very happy to help through this forum as necessary.

Thanks a lot
Liz N

Just a quick note that you can't actually advertise on the forum ladies...it is fine to have the links posted for people to go through, but you can't actually sell off the forum......please pm the admin if you have any further enquiries....thanks
