TOP 10 GYMS IN NORTH AMERICA - SWEATRx MAGAZINE, WINTER 2012
Sure you do: that break from drudgery. No repetition; a mental and physical break. A chance to forget everything and just run around.
Unrehearsed, informal; something different every day. Yes, you got sweaty, but the hours FLEW by. You were totally immersed.
Remember the Playground?
You were moving - but you didn't call it 'exercise.' It looked a lot different than your desk did. You tried new things. You laughed, climbed, ran, and jumped.
At our gym, YOU are the equipment.
Great Trainers don't need - or even want - a lot of equipment, because they know the truth: machines aren't natural. Squats are natural. Pushups are hard, but great. Burpees....well, no one likes those, but that's one more reason to do them.
WE BELIEVE IN YOU, EVEN IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
There's a reason we train this way: with short, but tough workouts; with free weights instead of machines; and in a private gym, nestled in the Industrial Park. We train this way because we've DONE the other stuff, and this is what works. Science is on our side.
Our physical philosophy is the same as our nutritional: eat real food. Do real work. Question, test, implement, repeat. Fifteen years of experience has taught us to keep things simple. Our coaches are the best in the business; our equipment is state-of-the-art. Ropes to climb, bumper plates, kettlebells, gymnastics rings, chalk, and your own feet: these are the tools required for true progress.
Chances are, you're here because a friend brought you. Most of us came to Catalyst the same way. When we started, we asked the same questions you're likely asking now. Today, we have more answers, and you can find those here. We also have MORE questions. We'll never stop learning on your behalf, because we believe that we can never know too much.
Knowledge, simplicity, and empathy. These are the cornerstones of the Catalyst community. Welcome.
