What moves you?

We very fortunate at Catalyst to host Alan Richter, Physiotherapist, of Revive Physiotherapy right here in our studio. This means that you not only have access to the physiotherapy clinic, but also the rest of our gym for your treatment, including squat racks and turf space.

A Physiotherapist is trained in understanding movement and pain. They are primary health care providers, which means you don’t need a doctors note or referral to be treated by a Physiotherapist.

When you come to Catalyst and visit Revive Physiotherapy, Alan will guide you through a 3 step process:

  1. Spend time with you one-on-one to discuss your pain, injury, or recent surgery and understand how it has affected your background, specific needs, workplace, activities, and hobbies.
  2. A Physical Exam to assess how you are moving, your pain triggers, and any specific movements related to your usual activities (running, golf, workplace etc.)
  3. A treatment plan including a recovery timeline and prognosis, therapeutic exercises, hands on treatment, and education on how to modify your usual activities if necessary as you rehab.

At Revive, they don’t believe in pulling people away from their usual physical activity or work unless it’s absolutely necessary. When you come for an appointment, you can rest easy that you will likely be able to enjoy your favorite sports, hobbies, and work in some capacity while you rehab.


Alan graduated from The University of Alberta Physical Therapy Program in 2016. Prior to his Physical Therapy career, he worked in Rehabilitation Sciences studying exercise-based approaches to spinal deformity and pain. He holds a Masters of Science degree in both Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science.

Alan has presented his research at international conferences and has been the recipient of multiple research awards. He has pursued further post-secondary education, completing his Level 1 courses in manual and manipulative physiotherapy.

His approach is fueled by his unique combination of research and clinical backgrounds. His interests lie in evidence-based approaches to pain management and human performance, and exercise-based approaches to rehab.

Alan has worked as a CSEP Certified Personal Trainer and holds a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification.

Alan loves being active and participates in many different sports, allowing him to understand the needs of a diverse variety of athletes and active individuals. His passion is getting people back to the activities they love or helping them start new ones.

When not in the clinic, he can be found biking or running on the incredible trail system around Hamilton, hanging out with his wife and kids, drinking strong coffee out of tiny cups, or in the gym picking things up and putting them back down again.
