My name is Cassy and I am a Certified Personal Trainer at World Gym. I have had the pleasure of knowing Jeralyn Petterson for about 2 years.  As a trainer, you notice the different types of people that come into the gym.  I noticed Jeralyn right away, because of her work ethic and how serious she took her workouts.  As the months went by, I gained a strong respect for her.  Jeralyn was all business and gave her all through every workout.  We later became friends and would share our workout knowledge and new ideas.  She was always so willing to share new information with anyone who was interested.
Jeralyn is a goal oriented person, who has a plan for each workout.  As a trainer, I feel there is no other way to workout.  Having a plan and short term goals in mind, will help anyone to get the most out of their workout.  I would call her the “cardio queen”, because Jeralyn would never miss a day of cardio.  I wanted to pick her brain, because her workouts were full of variety and actually looked fun.  She uses all different types of cardio equipment, varying her speeds, incline, and time.  When you have a plan for cardio, 40-50 minutes flies by.  I have experienced this for myself, and that says a lot coming from someone who use to dread cardio.  Her workouts are always different, unique, and fun.  This will keep people involved and doing cardio, and therefore they are going to see results.  I see so many people, doing the same boring cardio every day, and months later they look the same.  Jerlayn has the right idea and knows how to keep motivating herself and others.
I have also asked Jeralyn about her strength training workouts.  I believe the key to building muscle, is to continually shock your system with different workouts.  This way your body will build and show results quicker.  Jeralyn, does this with every strength training workout.  We’ve worked out together many times, and I love her ideas and variety.  Just like on the cardio end, she gives 110% in each strength training workout.
There are so many members of the gym, that respect Jeralyn.  I know she motivates myself and so many others to make each workout count.  She is going to be successful in anything she does, because she will not accept anything less.  Jeralyn is an amazing person, friend, and athlete.  I am a better person for knowing her.

These workouts are not for the faint hearted!  Jeralyn means business here!  I have been working out for many years and I feel like these workouts are intense!  A few years ago  I enrolled at our local gym and got more into strength training. I still love to do cardio workouts though and often get bored with my normal routines.  These workouts are AWESOME!!!  They definitely keep my body guessing- and I feel great after I have completed one!  There is a variety of different workouts.  Many of them are challenging, but there are also some that are more low key- when I don’t feel like pushing quite so hard.  I would definitely recommend both the treadmill ring and other equipment ring to anyone who is serious about getting in shape!  Just a fair warning……YES you will sweat…..a lot!

I have been looking for a way to vary my workout and make it both more challenging and less boring. I love the cards for that reason. They are easy to follow and convenient to take with me to the gym. They are customizable to your level of fitness. Ive only had them a week and already love them. Great find.

    If you are hgilhy concerned about burning muscle you can walk very slowly. Your body has different ways of accessing energy (ATP), or rather different energy production mechanisms. If you run all out your primary source of ATP will be from small ATP stores in your body, slightly less exuberant and you will use glycogen stored in the muscles as well as the liver. Both of these will burn out fast if you don’t slow down enough to allow for oxygen to enter the blood suplly and become a part of the equation. Any how the long story short is at the far end of this scale you have low exertion activity that burns fat as the primary fuel instead of glucose or its stored form glycogen from the muscles. That is why many body builders will walk on the treadmill when they are working to cut down for competition and do not want to lose their muscular size. However, your muscles will grow and strengthen if you train them to do so. I would personally suggest that if muscle loss is a concern for you that you look into building it up to counter the loss. This also has the side benefit of incresing your metabolism if you are looking to burn any fat. I caution you however that if you are looking for a way to lose fat without muscle you will greatly slow your progress down unless you are already quite muscular and have fairly small amounts of fat to reduce. You or any one else would still be better off to have a good combination of resistance training to help build the metabolism and moderate cardio to burn calories. Moderate cardio although it burns more calories from muscle will still also burn more from fat in a given amount of time than very slow cardio even though the slow cardio burns a higher percentage of fat out of the total fuel supply. For example. . . slow = 60% fat burn out of total 120 Kcal, wheras moderate burns 40% fat out of 200 Kcal. In the same amount of time slow burned only 72 Kcal of fat, but moderate burned 80 Kcal from fat. Hope it helps!
