Looks like we have some new folks! I will miss seeing Amanda.

bubbles76 10-24-17 08:18 PM

Sorry to not see Amanda, but Brenda looks super cute! Looks like her hair is darker, or is that my computer? And Jai looks great, as always :) Maybe Amanda is in another workout in the series.

mrsyancy 10-24-17 09:28 PM

They're not new. They've been in a couple other workouts. Jenn has been to probably ALL of cathe's road trips and Nicole is in cathe's classes. Nicole was in the last series cathe did and jenn has been in a few random videos including the fit tower DVDs.

athompson10 10-24-17 09:31 PM

I hope Amanda does appear somewhere in the new series. She goes all out and maintains great form. VERY inspiring.

+1 :) She is my favorite of Cathe's crew. I like her as a modifier as well. Definitely inspiring :D

LizEMA 10-25-17 05:23 AM

What. A. BUMMER! :( :mad:

Amanda is my all-time favorite crew member :love:, and I watch her just as much as I do Cathe if not MORE! Working out "with" her always makes me push myself harder and enjoy my Cathe DVDs so much more. Her form is always impeccable, and she makes everything look SO effortless. (Whenever I do my Cathe Lives, I ask myself "What Would Amanda Do?" LOL ;) :D )

She's been with Cathe for so long now, it feels almost just as absurd to have a series/workout without her as it would be to have one without Cathe! :eek:

SUPER disappointed that she won't be in this. (I know that was just one shot, but, it seems like Cathe is squeezing in the filming whenever she can, as soon as she can. Unless she does some weekend filming, it doesn't look like Amanda will be able to get up there. :( [Unless she has some other kind of scheduling conflict...] I do hope we get to see her face, though, in this series. Fingers crossed! :))

Rhonda 10-25-17 06:08 AM

Glad to see Brenda and Jai. I was hoping for Amanda also, there is still hope since there are three other workouts.

Jenn is in a lot of her spinning workouts, if not all of them. Nicole was in her last series.

I like this crew. I am not a fan of Marlo so sad to say but was happy I didn't see her.

bubbles76 10-25-17 07:14 AM

I liked Marlo! She always made it seem okay to "dial it down." I would feel like me and her were in the back of the room, saying to ourselves, "I know I can't do this move," and then dialing it back. I wish Marlo had been the designated modifier.

Me too.

kathym 10-25-17 07:43 AM

Brenda looks so cute. She is a favorite of mine. !!!
I also liked Marlo as it looked like it was not super easy for her but she did great and made me feel comfortable at the same time.
I have seen Jenn in the tower vids.
You never know. Amanda may be in others.

lavna 10-25-17 11:52 AM

I'm happy to see Jai and Brenda.
I'll always miss Cedie though.

Garrie A. 10-25-17 12:04 PM

Bring Lorrayne and Cedie back please! Oh, and Rhonda too--as long as she doesn't bounce in her heels when she steps down off the step ;)

horusosiris 10-25-17 12:23 PM

Yes, I too wish that Cedie would come back. I am also glad that Brenda and Marlo are in the series.

pgun3 10-25-17 03:15 PM

why is Cedie no longer with Cathe?

I like Marlo, too. I miss Lorraine and Cedie, as well.

In a thread earlier this year, muggle wrote that she thought she had heard Rhonda moved to Texas, but no one seemed to know what had happened to Cedie. (Sorry for the confusion when I first posted here that it was Cedie that had moved to Texas. I need to read more carefully.)

cataddict 10-25-17 11:27 PM

I pretty much have been okay with all the crew members Cathe has used, except maybe the other person that was one of the winners of the tryouts that brought in Amanda. She only appeared in the one series, if I recall correctly. That wasn't really that long ago, so I still consider Amanda a relatively new participant. I think of her current people that Brenda has been around the longest---she was on an earlier series, skipped a series (maybe two) and came back again. I love her---she seems so real, and stays in the back even though she has certainly "earned" her way to the row right behind Cathe in terms of tenure.

I like Marlo as well, she showed very little of the plastic smiley face that can look a bit possessed and over the top to me. :D

Amanda could still appear in one of the other workouts. It seems that only Jai is in all of them since Cedie left, maybe since she is the counter? I hadn't heard that Cedie moved away, I thought her job no longer allowed for the scheduling that Cathe needed for filming.

Elsie 10-26-17 03:38 AM

I quite appreciate it when Cathe has a tall/er, longer limbed lady as part of her supporting trainers (like Kate! :) ) cause we take longer getting out of those lunges, plus all-fours work, horizontal cardio conditioning and bicep-tricep moves are just a little different for us!! I wonder if Jenn is relatively tall?

I think everyone looks fantastic and happy from the pics! Getting enthusiastic to see some clips! Not sure if I have any faves (well, except Al ....), although Cedie always seemed like she was having a blast & I just like her very relaxed nature. As long as there's Cathe, I will be satisfied.
Having said all that, I know I have said it over at the Cathe forum before, but I would be excited to view a lot more body variety in everyone's (not just Cathe's) programs. Fit & energetic comes in many shapes! :heart:

Same here. I miss Amanda as she is fierce and hold great posture. Her passion shines throughout each performance.
What a shame!.:(

In the link above, muggle says she thinks she heard Rhonda moved to Texas not Cedie.

I thought Amanda was relatively new too and I remember when she first came on the scene many here didn't warm up to her right away. Now she's become a favorite:sun:.

Thank you, that's true. I can't remember where I read that. I thought Cedie was still in the area. She was in a Cathe Live class not too long ago. I miss her and Lorraine. Lorraine was fierce and had perfect form.

Thank you for pointing out my error! :o I edited my original post just now. I was far too tired to be trying to read through old threads and post yesterday. (Long car ride from Bryce Canyon to Park City, Utah.)

No worries. I was curious what happened to Cedie so I read the old thread. Too much time on my hands yesterday I guess :D.

Gibbee 10-26-17 12:39 PM

I've met Jennifer and I don't know that she is much taller than Cathe.
Amanda lives in Texas for sure. I thought at one point Rhonda moved to Georgia (Cathe mentioned it in slow and heavy) but I haven't heard where she is now. She looks so tall in the workouts but she's just 5'6" according to an old post by Cathe years ago. I am, too, so when I do workouts she is in it always strikes me at how tall she seems.

Cedie got married about 2 years ago but that's about all I know. I got to meet her at the 2013 road trip. She is sweet.

I miss Lorraine as well. Loved her in kick punch and crunch. She rocks that workout.

Amen. I would also like to see a few people over 50 as cast members. Always love seeing Debbie on Jessica's workouts and here and there random instructors include cast members who are not especially thin or especially young and some of them breeze through the workouts in an inspiring way. More of an ethnic mix would be good too.

Well stated. I agree with you. :):)

Yes, but she can still jump like she's 20. :D

Gibbee 11-05-17 02:20 PM

Amanda competed yesterday and took first in Physique in the Texas State Championships. Congratulations to Amanda!

ETA: She also competed in August in Texas. I wanted to double check that because I knew she had been busy prepping.

Wow! Awesome! Amanda is one of my favorite backgrounders. Period. I'm going to miss her in the new series....

Gibbee 11-05-17 02:27 PM

Its a matter of timing for all of them, so Im sure shell be back. She loves competing, though, and you can tell.

According to the bio I found on Brenda, she is 50 or over as well.

I was surprised to see that Amanda is in her late thirties. I thought she was much younger.

I did notice her muscle mass on strong and stweaty series. Since she joined the crew I could sense her passion for competion.
Her posture says it all. She is rocks!
