Real People Doing Great Things – Carmella M

Real People. Real Progress. Real Fat Loss.

Since opening Catalyst 4 Fitness, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some incredible people.  Each has her/his own story, obstacles, and successes.  One of these women is Carmella Mays.


Tell us about yourself. I’m 45 years old, and married with 2 kids, ages 13 and 10.

How long have we worked together? In what capacity?  I started taking Core Strength classes at Beech Acres in January 2016.

What did you expect when you started?  It has been YEARS since I’ve taken a fitness class and honestly didn’t know what to expect.

How do you feel now?  My posture has improved!

How has your body changed?  Tighter core (sounds cliché but it’s true!)

What non-scale victories have you experienced?  I ran a 5k in May 2016 and beat my previous 5k time by 3 minutes and 20 seconds, and truly think having a strong core attributed to that victory.

Are you stronger?  Yes.

What are your goals?  I am considering adding Boot Camp or Metabolic Explosion Training class to my current fitness schedule.

If you have tried fitness and nutrition plans in the past, what did you try? Why didn’t they work? How is this different?  I do different fitness DVDs at home 4-5 times a week.  Coming to a class outside of the house holds me accountable – I don’t want to miss a class!

What is the best part about working with Sharon?  No pressure on sales of products and the relaxed atmosphere for ALL fitness levels.

What would you tell others who are hesitant to start?  Start now, you’ll be glad you did!
