Cathe Friedrich XTrain Legs Exercise DVD Workout
Cathe's XTrain Legs includes new and traditional exercises scrambled in ways that will surely leave your lower body worked. This lower body program has a great mix of standing leg work, stability ball work, barre, and floorwork exercises, effectively sequenced to keep the fat burning and muscles responding. Your glutes and thighs will definitely be feeling this today and probably still talking to you tomorrow! Enjoy the workout in its entirety, or if you are short on time, select one of our shorter premixes to get the job done.
"p"This workout also includes an optional Bonus Rear Delts workout so that you can put a little additional focus on your rear delts with a few different exercises. I've included this option because studies have shown that your posterior delt is usually the weakest of your delt muscles and this causes shoulder imbalance problems as well as joint and posture issues. Special Feature
A 100 Rep Challenge is included in this video featuring the glute hip thruster. Believe it or not, research has shown the hip thruster to be one of the most effective glute exercises you can do, yet most people have never seen or done it. So get ready to experience the benefits of this exercise by paying close attention to my form pointers as I talk you through it.

About the Actor
Before there was Zumba, Tae Bo, Spinning or even Step Aerobics, fitness video pioneer Cathe Friedrich recognized the need to provide a simple, flexible, affordable and motivating way for Americans to exercise and stay fit. Nearly thirty years and over 200 home exercise workouts later, hundreds of thousands of people have credited Cathe Friedrich for helping them to transform their bodies and their lives with her videos and television shows. Like going through life with a friend, Cathe s followers have grown in their workouts as she has learned and expanded her video offerings, staying focused on her three guiding principles: Professionalism, Passion, and Quality. Cathe is often credited with being the first to bring advanced fitness videos to the home exerciser and helped to shatter the theory that only celebrities could star in fitness videos. As a long-time Certified Group Fitness Instructor, Cathe has taught countless classes at her New Jersey health club and has helped train many of today s top instructors. Since 1986, Cathe has been certified through the American Council on Exercise. Additional specialty fitness certifications include: Indoor Cycling, Body Pump, Kickboxing, Boxing, Prenatal Fitness, Resist-A-Ball, YogaFit, and more. In 2011, Cathe was inducted into the Fitness Hall of Fame along side other profound leaders, such as Arnold Schwartzenegger, Richard Simmons and Kathy Smith. As a leading innovator in the home exercise video industry, she founded Step N Motion Videos in 1988 and in 1989, created one of the first step aerobic videos. Cathe continues to produce fun, intense, and challenging workouts for all body types and fitness levels. Her award-winning workouts have been featured in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Dallas News, Fox Business News, NBC Nightly News, CBS News, QVC and the Philadelphia Inquirer. Health and fitness writers have published articles about her in Shape, Oxygen, Self, Health, Fit, Consumer Digest and Fitness magazines. While appearing on Fox Business News, Cathe shared the story of how she began in the fitness business. At 16, she took an aerobics class and three weeks later, Cathe was asked to teach it and was hooked. A few years later, she was teaching a creative movement class at a fitness studio on the top floor of Carnegie Hall, where she used fourteen inch benches as part of her workout. At the same time, Step Reebok was launching what is now known as step aerobics to the world. Cathe incorporated step into her philosophy, creating her first video, Step N Motion One, which was also one of the first and most influential step aerobic videos of its time. Today, her fitness empire includes all types of workouts and is one of the largest privately-owned fitness video libraries in the world. Collage Video, a source for exercise videos since 1987, says this about Cathe on their web site: Since the early 1990s, Cathe Friedrich s videos have set the standard for challenging workouts. Cathe Friedrich s workout video technique is excellent; her cuing style is very direct. These exercise videos will challenge even the elite athlete! The Dallas Morning News wrote: To say that Cathe Friedrich workout videos are tough is like saying Everest slopes upward. Discovery Channel s FitTV, where Cathe s workouts aired for seven seasons nationally, declared: Cathe is one of the most popular trainers on our network. She is a power-intense cardio-buster, a punch and crunch trainer. Always on the cutting edge, Cathe recognized the power of the internet and was the first to sell fitness videos online in 1997. Today, Cathe Dot Com is one of the largest and most-visited fitness websites and Cathe s pioneering work in this area has inspired other instructors to market and promote their own fitness videos in a similar fashion.
