Where are you from?
I am originally from a small town in Western New York – Cuba, NY! There are more cows than people and only two stop lights. I’ve moved around a lot – to the west coast and back – and just settled (for now) in Fayetteville, WV with my husband and my dog.
What is something about yourself that we might not know?
I spent my childhood both riding dirt bikes and in ballet class! My dad owns a motorcycle repair shop and didn’t have any sons, so he put me on a dirt bike at an early age. But, my mom wanted a girly ballerina so I took dance class for 5+ years. Pretty sure the opposite childhood hobbies formed me into the weird adult that I am today.
How long have you been a Savage Girl and why did you join?
I re-joined Savage in November 2018, so only a few months. But, I had been with Savage back in 2014 and had to take some time off to handle some life struggles. But, I wish never left. Those years without a coach and without the support of the Savage Sisters were really difficult. It feels really good to be back! I re-joined once I realized I need the help and the accountability. I realized I couldn’t do it on my own and having Jen as my Coach has been a real kick in the butt and motivator!
What advice would you give to someone just getting started with Cathy Savage Fitness?
As annoying as it may sound, trust the process. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Reach out if you need help. Finally, don’t beat yourself up about where you’re at. I know first hand that it can be very overwhelming and daunting to see photos from other Savage members who are competing – and feel like you’re so far from where you want to be. Try to remember that everyone’s story is different and every woman struggles from time to time. You’ll get there in your own time.
