When I first walked into Catherine Gordon Studio, I had no idea this place was going to be so much fun! From the very first Zumba class, to trying out Turbulence Training, and then entering the Total Transformation contest…this has been a life-altering experience for me. For the last 12 weeks, I have seen amazing changes not only in my physique, but also in my mental and emotional health.
I first joined TT just to find out what it was about. I remember mentioning to Catherine that I was concerned about my shoulder since I had had major surgery the year before. She was enthusiastic and positive and she said to me..”great! It’s time to strengthen that shoulder!” No sympathy here! I thought. That’s what I needed to hear. No excuses, just do it!
For the next 12 weeks, I learned about the TT Metabolic Monster, TT for Buff Dudes and Hot Chicks (I thought this name was pretty funny!) and one of the best Home Workout Revolution. I was amazed at myself when I started seeing my own progress. The prisoner squats and mountain climbers, became easier. No so much with the burpees. However, my favorite is the plank. This is where I noticed how much stronger my core was getting. I am able to hold the plank for two whole minutes!
Working out at TT twice a week and doing the Home workout revolution at home and Zumba at least once a week, has become my new hobby. I like to practice yoga in order to release tension. And now…TT is accomplishing the same purpose.
As much fun as I was having working out, I wanted to make an all-around lifestyle change. I didn’t feeI was overweight and I felt healthy, but I decided to follow some of the SugarFreedom recipes and between TT and making different food choices, I have lost 8 pounds and 10 inches. And that’s only in 12 weeks. I can only imagine what is to come as I keep traveling this journey. With the support of the wonderful ladies that I get to work out with, the inspiring transformations that are happening and the support of a wonderful trainer like Catherine….the sky is the limit!
I’m so proud of Maria’s accomplishments. What an inspiration!
