Back in 2008, I completely transformed my fitness practice by replacing cardio with weight lifting and interval training. At the same time, I cut sugar, grains, and vegetable oils out of my eating plan.
Within days my food cravings were gone, and after some initial soreness from my new weight lifting and interval training routine had passed, I found a new level of energy and enthusiasm for fitness.
Between April and December of that year, many pounds of fat came off, and I achieved the healthy weight that I have maintained ever since. As long as I stayed true to the principles of limiting sugar and developing strength I stayed lean, healthy, and happy, but if I tried to add back too many treats and too much cardio, the fat would creep back on.
After I became an ACE Certified Personal Trainer in 2012, I tried to teach more popular group cardio classes, but the personal cost was too great as I would experience increased fatigue, hunger, and joint pain.
Thankfully, I have been able to continue to teach my unique blend of intervals and resistance training to a dedicated group of students at Sol-Y-Breath in Sonora, CA. On Tuesday, January 8th, 2019 at 8AM I will begin the Drop Sugar, Lift Weight Challenge, with additional classes at 8AM and 5:30PM on Thursdays. The studio is located at 14709 Mono Way in Sonora.

If traditional cardio classes haven't worked for you, I invite you to try interval training with me, Catherine Best Gordon CPT.
