Phoenix continues to rise

Hey Crew~                                                                                                              April 24 2015

Wow!! 2 months in and so much to share.

As you all know..or may not know, a co. whom shall not be named came after me and bullied me into changing my name.

After much thought support and legal advice, I have been feverishly working on my name change. It sure is hard to change my name after devoting over 5years of blood sweat and tears, building my name and brand.  I will say this, you can make me change my name, but you will never change who I am and my passion for health and fitness.

….Introducing … Cat’s Functional Fitness.. Or in the words from the “gurls” after their Friday morning workout Cat’s Dysfunctional Fitness..;) ..gotta keep laughing !!!

Ok..lets get down some business~

There has been a change in the schedule. There will No longer be a Thursday evening class.

Schedule is Mon and Wed 5:30 pm and Tues and Thurs 10:30 am.

I will be throwing in Fun Five Buck Friday workouts too! Along with our Flash* Five Buck boot camps in the park~ This is a great opportunity to bring a friend to try out CSF. ..or CSI …Crime Scene Investigations..Crime Scene Fitness..LOL!! ok somebody stop me!! Kidding of course!

Skoop ~ I will also be sharing Skoop with you and will be planning to have a Skoop Happy Hour very soon. I will be handing out free samples and raffling off kick ass Skoop Tees as well. I’m very passionate about this product. Skoop carries the equivalent of 10 servings of vegetables. It has your supergreens and superfruits probiotics and adaptogens and omega 3s. The taste aint so bad either..:)

Give Aways!!!   Another gig I’m passionate about is recognizing people’s hard work. So, after every class, I will be honoring one person with a small token or a goody, for their determination and efforts during the workout!

I cannot Thank You all enough for your support, cheers and roars for me during this crazy time! Cat’s Functional Fitness Prevails!

***still playing around with the acronyms..CSF   or CFF..Hmm…take a vote! Let me know what you think!

In the meantime..Everything in moderation drink your water breathe and never forget your power within~

An added New Venture

As some of you may already know, right before the holidays I made the decision to join the fabulous team of Rodan+Fields. The Doctors who brought us Proactiv. They continue to create great products to help our skin to fight the impurities and stressors of our daily environment, while bringing out our individual glowing natural beauty.

I have used the Redefine line for over 2 years as well as Reverse. Having fallen to skin cancer, I truly recognize the value of taking care of one’s skin. Rodan+Fields  is the first full line I have found to support my/your skins needs.  I love it!

From the fresh scent to the texture. From how my skin looks and feels. And bonus, I can say my skin has been cancer free for well over 2 years now. Thanks to my most favorite R+F product, Redfine A:M Triple Defense Treatment. It has SPF 30 in the product itself. I’m always covered when I leave my casita. And living in Taos New Mexico, altitude of 7,000 I truly… We truly need it~

Its so great to embrace the skin I’m in~

Please contact me for more information~ I will be happy to share more about this amazing line.
