Cathy Secord

Easley, SC 29642-8632

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.

    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.

    As a 69 year old man I have my share of physical issues, Atrial fibrillation, sometimes positional vertigo, and even a run of tendonitis. I was also noticing myself getting weaker and having less ability to work around the house and yard.

    I like that Cathy will work with me and around my various limitations. I thought I would just do it myself, but I didn't. Also I have learned the importance of doing the exercises properly to prevent injuring myself. I am definitely stronger now, in better tone, and feel better about myself.

    The fact that we do this in the privacy of my home and she comes here is the icing on the cake, so to speak!

    If you've been putting of getting into shape…Call her!

    My name is Lolelia Todd. I live very close to Rev It and have traveled by that place many times since it came. I know that I needed to be training somewhere but was letting everything else get in the way of doing what needed to be done. When I decided to finally go there for a consultation, never in a million years did I think I would end up with a wonderful trainer like Cathy Secord. From day one, I felt very comfortable with her because we have both stuggled with our weight. I am still struggling to a certain extent, but Cathy is helping me to get control. Since I began training wth Cathy, my mindset had changed when it comes to making better choices with my food. I am not exactly where I need to be, but I am definitely not where I was. Her voice is always in my head asking "how's your food?". Cathy is very caring and wants to see me succeed. Because I know that she genuinely cares, I find myself working harder not only for me, but to make sure that she continues to be proud of me. I have shedded inches since I began training with Cathy in December. My clothes fit better and people have begun to notice something different. I know that lifestyle changes start with the individual, but I would not be where I am without Cathy. Thank you, Cathy for being the person you are! XOXO
