Re:Where to purchase a ladies weighted bar like Cathe uses in her dvd's.
I don't know what Cathe is using, but there is something called a BodyBar.
You can buy them in different weights. I have the 12# and the 18#.
Basically a coated metal bar, the weight distributed evenly along the length. The coating provides a bit of padding and insulates your skin from cold metal, and makes it non slippery.
I've found mine to be versatile. They have stood the test of time, I've had mine about 20 years. They are easy to store....I put mine upright in the corner of the room, when I'm not using them, hidden by the curtain. They could also easily slide under a bed or dresser.
