Cathy Secord

Easley, SC 29642

At age 37 I was unable to work because of extreme weakness and chronic pain caused from Fibromyalgia. My children were young and needed their Mother to be there for them. As a last resort, I slowly began to exercise, working through the pain and discomfort. I gradually built up my strength over several months of being consistent and dedicated. I was so determined to have a better life for me and for my family. Over time, the pain began to subside, thus motivating me to continue on. I knew that I would never return to where I had come from. At my heaviest, I weighed 250 lbs and 40% body fat. As I realized more and more benefits from the consistent workouts, I became more interested in nutrition, learning how to fuel my body. I lost the weight. Down to 147 lbs and 18% body fat. I have maintained a fitness lifestyle for over 20 years, I am now pain free, and have an awesome quality of life! My personal experience fuels my passion to help others achieve their goals and overcome obstacles in their life, from extreme stress to obesity. I also enjoy working with those who want to tone, build muscle, improve coordination and balance. If you are looking for motivation, accountability, and for a Personal Trainer who has experienced obesity and is truly passionate, contact me. We will work together as a team to accomplish long lasting results. You do not even have to leave the comfort and privacy of your home. I will come to you. No membership fees, and very reasonable rates.

    Cathy is a wonderful trainer. My husband and I "interviewed" two other trainers before deciding to go with Cathy. I desperately needed someone that would tailor everything to me. I had lower back problems and had sprained my ankle a few months earlier and Cathy chose great exercises to do around those problems. I really needed someone to "babysit" my meal plans and my tracking and she did wonderfully with teaching me what to eat and providing accountability. I really felt she truly cared and wanted the best for me, so I wanted to make sure my meals where on point. She drove out to my apartment and worked in a small space with me - which I was very happy about. Something else I really enjoyed is the fact that she has been there herself. She understands what it is like to be overweight and unhealthy. She knows the struggles. You will see results with Cathy as your trainer - so long as you stick to what she is showing and instructing.

    Cathy simply ROCKS. I've been working with her for several months now, and have found her to be the most sympathetic and adaptable trainer/health coach that my wife and I have ever encountered. She comes to our house and provides us with a customized fitness training program that not only takes into consideration what I need physically, but also what training equipment/facilities we have. She's also the first person we've ever had who really helped teach us both about what kinds of foods we can eat in order to truly achieve success. She keeps telling me that "it's 80% what you put in your mouth and 20% exercise" -- which must be true because it's working. But while I really appreciate Cathy's flexibility and dedication to educating us about ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle, what I really appreciate about Cathy is that she really cares about us as individuals.

    What more could you ask for? Have a totally committed trainer come to your home and and provide fitness training that is planned around your personal needs who also helps you finally figure out what you can put in your mouth that is healthy and ok for weight loss or maintenance. All of this in the comfort of your own home...Cathy really does care about your well being and success with your fitness goals and goes far beyond the call of duty.

    Cathy and I have been doing pool aerobics this summer and it has been wonderful to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and the refreshing water of the pool while receiving the benefit of training. I appreciate the flexibility Cathy shows in the routines and it is great having her come to my home on my schedule. She has been a lifesaver to me and a constant encourager for me to meet my goals. I highly recommend Cathy as a personal trainer and health coach. Kathy Kempf

    Cathy worked with me from a distance over the phone. During our weekly calls Cathy gave me a wealth of information to equip me to change my normal. To have power over my habits instead of my habits having power over me.

    She gave me the tools I need to change my lifestyle for long term success. She taught me about macro nutrients, cravings, recovering from lapses, how to equip my pantry and the need for consistent exercise.

    Cathy is informative and encouraging. Truly someone you want by your side.
