meet our expert coaches

At Catalyst PHD we like our Fitness Coaches to have a high level of university education... We want to have as much experience and knowledge as we can to make sure we know exactly what we are doing, exactly how the body moves, how to prevent people from getting injured and how to get the most out of their training.
