“Gym”: redefined John & Cathi Little

CELEBRATING A NEW ANNIVERSARY!

Tell us about yourself? We own John Little Catering. John is a professionally trained chef, and Cathi helps with administration and event planning. We moved to Ramona in September 2006 and have fallen in love with our town. We have two wonderful kids, a daughter who is 14, and a son who is 12. They are active in gymnastics and tang soo do, respectively. We are family oriented. We love to spend time with each other and with our kids. What got you interested in exercising? The summer of 2009, we both gained about 10 pounds in response to stress because of a house fire in June. We both knew we needed to do something to lose weight and to counter the overwhelming stress. We had been discussing it for some time when we were approached by RFC to cater the Ramona Chamber Mixer they were hosting in September. We quickly realized that this was an answer to prayer. We negotiated an exchange for services, and we were off! It didn’t take long until we were hooked! What was life like before you became a member? We lead very busy and sometimes hectic lives. We have our own business, homeschool our children, have an active social life…that says it all! We didn’t think we had time to do something like “work out.” Like many of us, we “talked” about getting in shape. How long have you been a member of RFC? We just had our one-year “anniversary” with RFC the end of September…so one year!

What do you do when you come into the gym? Two days a week we participate in small group training sessions. The other two or three days a week we spend 20 to 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer and then try to duplicate the many exercises we’ve learned through small group training. We enjoy working out together, encouraging one another, laughing at and with each other as we struggle to try new exercises. Having a partner to work out with is key for us. John motivates me to get up and out of bed early to start our workout. Not many people are motivated or disciplined enough to do it on their own for any length of time. How is life different? We are stronger, fitter, look better. We are more conscious of what we eat. We save some of the indulgences (sweets, soda pop, and so on) for special occasions rather than making them a part of our weekly diet. We are doing something together that is changing us for the better. We sometimes come in a little irritated at each other, but that doesn’t last long. We leave with very different attitudes. What are your big successes when it comes to your fitness? Strength comes to mind. Endurance, being able to press on through a workout without feeling like dying! We took up water skiing this summer and were pleasantly surprised how easy it was! John’s always been very athletic, but I was surprised when I popped right out of the water the first time in over 15 years! And I wasn’t sore the next day. Amazing! Why would you recommend RFC to a friend, family member, client? Definitely! We do all the time. Even our friends “down the hill” get an invite to join us! But like with us, everyone has to get to that place where they want it themselves. We say, Sign up for small group training, make a date to meet someone, and you will keep the appointment. Get moving and stay moving. Oh, and I have to say that the staff at
