Fitness Weekend!



About 8 years ago I was fat and miserable. I didn't want to go anywhere, I didn't want to see anyone and I was generally unhappy. I was browsing the web(which may have been part of my problem;) and came across the Video Fitness Video Exchange. Their site allows you to exchange workouts you either don't like or just don't want anymore, for videos you may enjoy. I had quite a few workout DVD's collecting dust so I posted them on the exchange. I had a few bites and one of mine I exchanged for Cathe's Cardio Kicks. This is Cathe's original kickbox workout. I didn't have any of her workouts and thought kickboxing would inspire me to get moving. I made the exchange. Well folks as they say, the rest is history! I have since acquired every one of Cathe's workouts and she has changed my view on fitness forever. She's the reason I now call myself The Fitness Freak!

Every year I have watched her Road Trip in New Jersey come and go and every year I have wished I could attend. New Jersey was a bit of a stretch but I thought, maybe. one day. In November, Cathe decided to take her Road Trip "on the road". Her first stop was Daytona, FL. Since she only announces the locations about 3 months prior to the date, I was waiting with bated breath to see if she would come closer to California. Guess what? She is not only coming to CA, she's coming to my town, San Diego! Needless to say I was waiting at the computer the second the registration opened and was 11th in line to register for the weekend. My friend, also a Cathe fan, is going with me. A three day weekend with a great friend, workouts with my favorite instructor, 75 degree weather and alone time? Now that's what I call PRICELESS!!!!

I'm so excited to take pictures and share with all of you the fun I know I will have! Stay tuned!
