Cat·a·lystAn agent that provokes or speeds significant change or action.

Here at Catalyst, we recognize the less than ideal relationship that our clients have with food. We understand that exercise is not easy, and jumping headfirst into a joint-destroying boot camp can make you leave feeling more defeated than when you walked in.

We are here to guide you. We don’t like buzz words or use your vulnerability to sell you unwanted packages. You are our priority.

Change isn’t easy. Long-lasting change is next to impossible. If you’re looking to lose 50 pounds in 12 weeks, we can honestly tell you that this is not the place for you. With our programs, you learn to move your body appropriately. You learn to workout without pain, and to leave your sessions feeling energized and able to complete daily tasks so much easier than before. There is no more tinman/woman walking down a flight of stairs or getting up off of the floor.

Your relationship with food becomes one of enjoyment and exploration, not one fuelled with guilt and eating snacks in your car so that nobody can see you.

You will speak to yourself differently. You will look in the mirror and smile, knowing that the steps you are making, although they may feel small in the moment, are rebuilding not only your physical body, but also breaking down the negative emotional walls that you’ve had up for so long.

This is what personal training looks like inside these doors.

Let us be your Catalyst for change.

24 hour gym hamilton
I have been training at Catalyst for the last two and a half years. When I initially came in, my body was a mess. I had limited mobility and a strain of injuries that kept me from being able to complete the easiest of exercises. It took a lot of grit and determination, but Bryan and his team at Catalyst always had my back.

Today I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my free time other than being in the gym and working on my personal goals. I love leading a healthy and active lifestyle, and it was Catalyst that helped me rediscover that.

Bryan is amazing. Have been working with him for many years. He got me through the pre-hip surgery pain and cut the recovery time after significantly. He is extremely knowledgeable and caring. He creates a workout program that is perfect for me and my 60 year old body!

Fantastic! I have been training with Bryan @ Catalyst for 7 months and it has been an incredible experience. He is knowledgable and the results prove it. Intimate facility, which is great for people who want private sessions, yet all the equipment one could ever need. The changes I have noticed make the hard work worth it!

Bryan and the team at Catalyst take a totally different approach than your typical gym. Starting with YOU as a real person, with real needs being apart of a real Community. The attention to detail is next level which results in well… RESULTS.

Excellent trainers here really listen to what you’re saying and help you figure out what you need to do. Great for fixing muscular issues as well as general diet and exercise training. Very knowledgeable, personable staff.

I had lower back pain walking into suspension yoga this evening. Mark was amazing. I thought (as often happens) I would be dealing with the pain for weeks. By the end of class, it was almost gone, and two hours later I am feeling great. Thank you, Mark, and thank you Catalyst!
