In 1982, two of Cathy’s Children stared attending classes at The Chalk Box. Michael (retired 1st Sgt. Speelman, USMC) was 4, and Jenny was 3. In 1983, her son Nicholas, age 2, started taking classes also. Cathy began teaching gymnastics classes then also. The kids worked there way up thru the levels, joining the competition teams, and even competing at the AAU Nationals. In the fall of 1983 Cathy began teaching fitness classes. In 2001, when Beverly decided to retire, Cathy and her husband David, being like family, were given the opportunity to buy the business. The Speelman’s have continued to maintain the same values that started with The Chalk Box. Now days, even retired, it’s not hard to find her still teaching fitness classes.
