Meet Team Member Cathy Peterson, The Abs Company Operations Coordinator. Believe me when I say, The Abs Company would not run nearly as smoothly without her! Learn a little bit more about Cathy...
- How would you explain your position/role at The Abs Company?
I am supporter to our Dealer Sales Reps, processing our customer orders and providing logistics services. International Shipping is something I work on as well. I love working with people from around the globe and helping them to import our products and change more lives from the core. I am also the organizer of our Customer Appreciation Program here at TAC and have the pleasure of sending out gifts of our gratitude to our clients.
- How did you get into fitness/ the fitness industry?
I was always involved in team sports growing up, swimming, soccer, tennis etc. I veered away from it in my teens, but 7 years ago after the loss of my residence and belongings in Hurricane Sandy I decided to start over in every way and challenge myself to be the best version of myself. So I began a journey to be healthier and feel better. Fitness brings me peace and strength both physically and mentally. I want to help others to feel good and strive to be the best version of themselves.
- What do you like best about your job?
I enjoy the journey of logistics and the sense of accomplishment when things arrive successfully to the end user. I get to see the process through from beginning to end. Seeing a quote progress to an order, working with the warehouse or factory to get the product successfully received by the customer. The bonus is that I get to do this with a fantastic group of people working together for a common goal.
We believe our team is family here at The Abs Company, and I have never worked with an organization that held this value so high. We accomplish great things together as a TEAM!
- Which Core Value means the most to you and why?
“We DEMAND HONESTY and INTEGRITY from ourselves and others.”
To work for a company with core values such as these is a goal for me in and of itself. Honesty and Integrity should be forefront in any business, however this is not always the reality. I feel a great deal of pride in knowing we are about doing the right thing at all times and in all situations.
- What is your favorite TAC product and why?
I have really enjoyed using the AbCoaster CTL. I feel it’s easy to use, highly effective, and improved my posture during exercise. Also, the AbSolo, because who doesn’t like making their workout more entertaining?
- What is something you enjoy doing outside of work?
Anything outdoors. Hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and gardening are high on my list. Spending time with my husband, family, and my beagle Louie.
- Anything else you would like people to know? (fun facts, hobbies, awards, certifications, accomplishments, goals, favorite quote, etc.).
In my spare time I work with charities and have done projects with The Appalachian Service Project and A Future with Hope as well as some small local groups. TAC Gives Back is a wonderful way to continue to help others. “There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” - John Holmes
