Cat & Kaehler

Catherine Grace O'Connell


Catherine Grace O’Connell is an LA Talk Show Host, Journalist, and Inspirational/Lifestyle Influencer with a mission to empower women of all ages. After 54 years of being silenced by a lifetime of trauma and abuse as a #MeToo, she found her Voice and has become a Thought Leader and Age Disruptor by celebrating and promoting the vitality, reinvention, creativity, and wisdom of women at Midlife.
“For the first time in history, there is an enormous demographic that is able to have health, vitality, wisdom, life experience, and a pocketbook, all at the same time! My message is that women can be raw, real, and vulnerable while also being strong, wise, and compassionate. Midlife women are here to share the incredible font of wisdom that can only be earned through life experience. It is the crown jewel of Midlife and the one thing that cannot be purchased, but must be earned through overcoming life’s challenges. Midlife is a time for women to blossom into, and manifest their full power. No longer will we be silent and in the background … it’s time to be Fierce … and cool!”
Community, connection, and involvement are what women truly desire. The Forever Fierce Facebook Group , founded by Catherine is a supportive and collaborative community and Sisterhood where we are building a powerful and substantive frame around Midlife. This show is their Voice. These women are empowered … and “empowered women at Midlife are cool!” Come join us!

Kathy Kaehler


Kaehler is an unstoppable champion for people ready to learn how to be happier, healthier and bolder in creating the life (and body) they dream of.  Kaehler has been inspiring women since the early 90’s when she stepped onto the NBC Today Show studio and believes it’s never too late to get started.  Her life-changing expertise has transformed lives throughout a career where she’s worked out, taught, trained, and cooked side-by-side with positive living icons like Jane Fonda, Katie Couric, Leeza Gibbons and the Kardashians. Fans love Kathy for her willingness to be honest and get real when it comes to stress, nutrition, positive living, personal growth, and the really important stuff like sleep, sex and how to deal with menopause.
When Kaehler faced a double hip replacement, she took a big risk and opened up to her platforms the fears, nasty scars, and everyday struggles as she worked through them, never holding back.  These emotionally-charged stories allowed her audience to see and connect emotionally with her as a real person.  She is someone who understands, shares the same worries and struggles, and best of all, she really, really CARES.
This passion for transforming her own struggles into positive and realistic health and fitness support that fits in to the real world has truly resonated and, after 30 years of helping people, Kaehler revels in the transformations she’s witnessing as she helps women of all ages take back control of their bodies, their lives, and the role they play in this world.
