Cathy S. Plouzek

Cathy is a Human Resources Professional, Madly in love with her Husband of 32 years, Group Fitness Junky, Run Marathons for FUN and LOVES to Shop!  She has over 32 years’ experience in the Human Resources profession.  Her passion is helping others – one of her favorite quotes comes from Mother Teresa where she says… “I alone cannot change the world.  Instead, I can cast a stone across the water to create many RIPPLES… “.  Cathy creates these RIPPLES through career advice, training and mentoring, sharing faith experiences, and… of course fitness programs.  

Cathy’s fitness journey started in 1996 when she “threw away” her 3 pack a day smoking habit.   Ten years later, she was running her first marathon (Chicago) Marathon 46!  To date – she has completed 8 full marathons and several Half Marathons.  She also helps other new runners by volunteering with community running programs.  Cathy “unofficially” retired from full marathons a couple of years ago and became certified to teach CIZE Live, a hip-hop dance inspired workout.  Since that time, she has added certifications in Country Heat Live, Turbo Kick Live, Pound Rockout Workout and will soon be certified in Strong by Zumba and Generation Pound!  To reach Cathy directly, please email
