Perhaps the number on the scale has been creeping up and as the years are flying by, you know something's gotta give. I feel your pain. I’ve been there, I know what you are going through, and I’m here to help. You want to lose a few pounds, feel fit, and have more energy...and you’re frustrated at the thought of trying again to eat healthier or get in shape.

You’re tired of failing! You’re smart enough to know there are no quick fixes and no magic wand so you don’t want to waste your time or money on the latest fad diet. But still…you know results are possible and you need a realistic plan from someone you can trust that can deliver long-lasting results while juggling all the other things on your plate.  

If this sounds like you, you are in the right place, my friend! The path for all of us involves twists and turns, starts and re-starts. I’m here to take you by the hand and support a renewed jump start for you on this journey. Read on to learn about:

BOOM: 6 Steps to a Longer, Healthier Life

 I invite you to join me in an immersion experience for a reset! Learn how to ditch the old ways that never work and build habits that transform your body and your mind for results that last a lifetime!


I’m Cathy Richards, an exercise physiologist, author, and wellness coach along with being a wife, a mother of college and young adult children, and a caregiver for my mother. Like you, I’ve struggled with healthy habits through the years. I know how frustrating it can be and I created this program just for you based on the success strategies that have worked for me personally and hundreds of clients I’ve worked with. I’m thrilled to share with you my 20+ years of experience and best practices from my book, BOOM: 6 Steps to a Longer, Healthier Life! You can be successful in shaping up, gaining energy, and feeling better!

BOOM! An explosive feeling that speaks to you. 
BOOM! A wake-up call that you can’t ignore.
BOOM. Done.

Can you feel it? Can you relate?  Are you ready to apply the BOOM mindset to your own health and fitness?

By the end of your Immersion Experience, 
you will have…


  • A mindset that has been transformed to handle all the healthy habit roadblocks that life throws at you
    You will have the keys to motivation and consistency that lead to long-term lifestyle change. Why keep trying unrealistic, overly restrictive plans that depend on perfect conditions when life is just not like that?! You will have the skills to adapt and adjust your routine as life changes, getting healthier all the while. I know it and you know it – success begins with mindset, yes? I got you.
  • A metabolism makeover and healthy eating road map that will get you to (and keep you) at your goal weight 
    Some of us feel like we have the metabolism of a snail and eating LESS is not the answer, even if you want to lose weight. An overly-restrictive diet plan is not only doomed to fail because it’s impossible to stick to, it can make your metabolism problem worse! You may have tried them all, so I’ve gotta ask you, are you ready to acknowledge that diets don’t work? Instead, with this program, you will be armed with a clear understanding of how your metabolism works and how to fuel your body for high energy while shedding unwanted fat. You’ll have the no-nonsense facts about what really matters so you can enjoy an eating style that will work for you with no end in sight.
  • A customized, sustainable home exercise plan that you can stick to long term
    Your time available and motivation level for exercise will never be constant! The biggest obstacle in sticking to any exercise plan is all-or-none rigidity. BOOM will provide you with four levels to choose from for a home exercise plan that delivers fat loss, muscle toning, and energy! Results come with consistency and the magic of BOOM is the strategy of shifting up and down the levels as life changes so that your HABIT will be rock solid. Results will follow! How would that feel? 
  • More energy to tackle your busy life
    You know that exercise will give you energy but you don’t have the energy to exercise! That’s a problem, isn’t it? No more! This program will give you the tools and progression of eating and exercise changes that will give you all the energy you ever wanted for your busy life.
  • A new confidence that you are DOING IT with no end in sight!
    It’s easy to get down on yourself when you think of all the failed attempts you might have had in the past to lose weight or get in shape. Something always gets in the way and you get off track. The good news is that you haven’t missed your chance! Change is always possible. We learn and we grow. You can stick to a plan and you will feel great about it. Truth be told, you’ll feel on top of the world once you get this monkey off your back. Soon you can say to yourself, “I’m doing it!” and know in your heart that there will be no rebound effect and it’s now simply part of how you live your life! 

"I used to be very fit and then over the years, my habits changed, my weight crept up, I felt tired, unmotivated and overweight.  I needed help getting back on track! When we first started, I needed inspiration and accountability.  As we have progressed, I have come to also appreciate her expertise in helping me workout in a way that is perfect for me.  I highly recommend Cathy for anyone who needs both to be challenged and coached to build a lifestyle of wellness and strength."

Cyndy P.

Shh...I'm going to let you in on a little secret

 It really is possible to lose fat, get stronger, and change your habits for GOOD! I am so excited to offer this program to help you achieve your goals faster, more effectively, and more successfully than you can do on your own!  

I can feel the difference in my body from following the exercise routine Cathy created for me. My “back fat” jiggles a lot less and I feel my muscles moving and holding me up! I used to take Aleve every day for pain and I haven't had to take it at all ever since starting this program! I have flexibility, a lot less pain, and a spring in my step! 

- Rhonda M.


Being fit and healthy is very important to me. I have a demanding job and working with Cathy has been a valuable part of my overall wellness plan. I look forward to our workouts as a stress reliever and I’ve gotten stronger and more flexible. Exercising regularly is a habit for me now that I won’t ever stop!

Meet Shelly: What a difference a year makes!


"Tears filled my eyes while looking through pictures last Christmas, not because of the joyous memories they contained but because of frustration and discouragement over how I looked in them. While I realized had gained weight, for some reason those pictures were a turning point for me. I didn’t feel good about myself at all, and looking back I can see that it also affected me mentally. I had no self-confidence, and no energy for long-term. I knew there had to be a change.

So, 2021 started with gradual change, more exercise, strength training and better food choices. It was a slow journey with frustratingly little obvious progress, but I did start to see results.

Eventually results began to snowball, and in more areas of my life; clothes were getting looser, I started feeling stronger, and having more confidence.

About nine months into my journey, I was really motivated to keep going since I was seeing results. I was actually getting rid of clothes because they were too big!

The key for me was strength training, persistence, and accountability. Even when there was no time for cardio I regularly did strength training workouts. Even when I didn't feel like it, I tried to stick with it as much as possible. The accountability of knowing Cathy knew I was at a live workout and having an awesome accountability partner also helped me stay focused on meeting my goals.

This is truly a journey, and everyone needs support. So many times, we know the “right” things to do but for one reason or another don’t end up doing them. Having someone help me in my fitness journey was the key!"

I lost over 40 pounds while working with Cathy! She helped me take a close look at my overall habits, set realistic goals, and create an eating and exercise plan that worked for me. Week by week, she taught me so much, held me accountable, and the results just followed!

P.S. I'm still going!

"I've tried many different exercise routines through the years but never appreciated the huge value of weight training until I worked with Cathy. She understood exactly what I needed and created a personalized, home workout  routine that has really worked and one I can stick to! I do it at home in under 30 minutes which is exactly what I wanted! I'm stronger than ever, love the changes it has made to my body, but most importantly, I'm delighted with the improvements to my health and well being!"

Anne Marie M.


I feel so much better. I have energy, less aches and pains, and I am just plain healthier. Cathy has been a great resource, motivator, and friend. I am most thankful for whatever happened during that first meeting with Cathy when a stifled inspiration was thrust into light. It was a pivotal moment. In a word, “WOW!”  

Stephanie S.


I couldn’t ask for a better coach for me. Cathy has been inspiring, supportive and a full-blown cheerleader for me. I had a time where I was just hanging out at the same weight and Cathy kicked me in the butt and did some heavy-duty problem solving with me to get me back on track and back on my losing streak!!

I can’t wait for you to join
BOOM: 6 Steps to a Longer, Healthier Life


I created this course because I wanted to serve you – the busy professional who is juggling so many things but knows that nobody is going to do this for you. I created this course to help you put habits into place that will lead to more energy and wellbeing now and the deeper goals of lifelong fitness and peace of mind that you are aging as healthfully as possible. We all tend to start off with goals like fat loss and looking our best, but it’s deeper than that, isn’t it? Maybe you’re like me and have seen more than a few years go by and have watched your parents or other older adults in your life age successfully…or unsuccessfully and you know that your own health, independence, and quality of life depend largely on the habits you start NOW. You’re relieved to hear that it doesn’t have to be as hard or as complicated as you once thought. Best of all, you finally realize that you can’t afford NOT to take action!

I wrote BOOM: 6 Steps to a Longer, Healthier Life after working in corporate wellness followed by senior wellness. The book reached Amazon Bestseller with over 3000 downloads of the digital version in the first week alone. The messages of BOOM resonate as lessons from my work with seniors brought BACK to younger adults to change the path of your aging and those around you. It’s a sneaky extra goal of mine to also improve the health of your family, workplace, or community. We all have a sphere of influence and set an example for those around us. What example is that? Is it one of health? Of prioritizing your own health and of being a positive role model and example to those around you? Families and communities flourish when they work on their well-being together. This is your chance and your moment to make a difference. I’m so glad that you’ve stopped looking for quick fixes and are ready for a new approach!

BOOM (the course) brings the messages from the BOOM book to life. Most of us learn better through immersion, personal contact, and practice. I created this course as an experience so much richer than just reading the book. Online learning systems provide an expanded learning opportunity for true and lasting lifestyle change. You’ll be able to hear my voice, watch my demonstrations, interact with me personally, and change your life!

I know what you’re going through personally. I also have the professional credentials to add to the mix including a Master’s Degree in Exercise Physiology, certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine, and other nationally recognized organizations. Through my business, Inspiring Vitality, I provide personal fitness training, wellness coaching, and seminars, focusing equally on the motivational aspect and the practical aspects of fitness and healthy aging success. I’m thrilled to now offer this format and program to reach even more people who need BOOM in their lives!

Remember that this offer is risk-free and that you can get a full refund if the program’s not right for you.  

Remember why this program is entitled BOOM. You'll have: A strong body. A sharp brain. Endless energy.

BOOM! An explosive feeling that speaks to you. 
BOOM! A wake-up call that you can’t ignore.
BOOM. Done.

Can you feel it? Can you relate?  Are you ready to apply the BOOM mindset to your own health and fitness? You’re in the right place and I want to take this journey with you!

I hope you’ll join me for BOOM!
