Cathe Fit Tower dvds?

Iíve been looking at these and wanted some feedback on those that have the Fit Tower dvds. Do you like these or do you prefer other barre workouts? They look pretty advanced?

I guess nobody has these? I remember hearing some complaints when Cathe ventured into the barre arena, but canít remember if it was the Fit Tower ones.

I have them but donít feel qualified to respond to your questions. I have the three DVDs that came in cardboard sleeves which are beginner, intermediate and advanced. I noted on the back of the advanced disc that it wasnít as tough as ďnormal CatheĒ. I donít think these discs are that hard.

I also have the two fit tower DVDs that came in normal cases, Total Body and Legs Glutes and Core. I donít have much independent memory of these workouts. I think that I thought some of the moves could easily be done without the tower. I donít have a tower.

Sorry I canít be more help.

I would love to have them all and asked about them a while back. I don't remember the responses. I'll see if I can find the thread.

I like the three workouts that came with the FitTower. I don't think they are as challenging as most barre workouts can be though. I like the upper body work and stretches on these DVDs.

I think these might be available via the downloads?

It depends on which ones you are talking about. The ones that Cathe produced and sold after the FitTower came out are available. The ones that came with the FitTower purchase are not.

I like the FT workouts, however, I suffer from VF syndrome, too many workouts, not enough hours/days.

I did a rotation in 2019 so I went back to look at my previous notes, copied & pasted below. Total Body is the winner and was my favorite. I need to revisit soon. I categorized these as intermediate/low advanced.


FIT TOWER ADVANCED (FTA): Boot Camp. I wasnít sure about this going in but I really enjoyed it. I did a lot of improvising, using my tubing pull-up door attachment, the club step with lots of risers and a sturdy chair. Challenging but not crazy hard.
FTA: Legs, Glutes & Core. Somehow I missed the core part of this title. More core than I wanted to do but then I channeled Jane & AnMrsDe and got it done. Not a bad workout, may have been more challenging if I had a Fit Tower? Still undecided if I want a Fit Tower. Other than a few workouts to complement the Fit Tower (with moves that have been done without a Fit Tower), how often would I really use this piece of equipment?
FTA: Total Body. I liked this one a lot. It moves quickly. I had to rewind a couple of times because I wasnít expecting Cathe to get right into the next set so quickly. So wishy/washy: I think I want the Fit Tower again. Maybe if Cathe has a great Black Friday deal.
FTA: Advanced Total Body. Love!
FTA: Bootcamp. I appreciate that this is an easier workout compared to Catheís other bootcamp workouts.
FTA: Legs, Glutes & Core - I did the full workout. Pat on the back for doing core. I feel like Iím not really doing anything when doing this workout but I feel it in those tiny muscles in the areas that need it most. The back of my legs are great, the front of my legs need some fine tuning. What I like about the core work is that Cathe doesnít go super fast or does a gazillion reps like she tends to do sometimes.
