We are a coaching facility. We are experts who help people get into the best health of their lives.

For most, that path starts with OnRamp. Six small-group Personal Training Sessions to prepare you for CrossFit or Open Gym, OnRamp takes you back to basics: the squat, the press, the deadlift, the clean; pullups and kettlebells; climbing and skipping. It's boot camp with brains. Get OFF of the treadmill and start making some progress!

We limit OnRamp to 4 people per month, and start on the first Monday of each month. Register online here, or call 705-256-1344 to put your name on the list!

You don't have to be good to start, but you have to start to be good.


Personal Training

At Catalyst, we're renowned for our Personal Training. We hire only the best personalities. We constantly train and study to learn better ways. We publish knowledge almost daily on our site. We've been doing it this way since 1996.

One-on-one is the best way to learn with – and be pushed by – a Trainer. Many start Personal Training at Catalyst as a way to push themselves. For some, we're a start. For many, we're a restart. 

Sport-specific, weight loss, or 'just get fit,' the Catalyst Team can help. Schedule a free chat here – no pressure, promise! – or call 705-256-1344 for more. 

Kids and Teens – the Varsity Program

What's the best way to prepare a kid for sport? Developing all-around athleticism. Specializing – doing one sport only – too early in life creates a multitude of problems. Cover your bases with CrossFit Kids!

Rumble/Tumble – Ages 4-7 – Saturday mornings at 9am. Kids do basic tumbling exercises, calisthenics, balance, and a TON of games that they love! Start them off on the right foot – teach them to love exercise and play!

Junior Varsity and Varsity – Ages 8-15 – Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:30, Saturday mornings at 10am. Train to learn and master skills common to gymnastics, running, tumbling, calisthenics, weightlifting, rowing, and kettlebells. Younger athletes use very light weights to learn technique; older athletes train to compete at sport or at CrossFit events.

The Ignite Academy has continued its growth despite the summer. Kids who want to get a head start on classes have begun Tutoring sessions – mixed with short workouts, of course – and clients with autism kept rolling all summer long! 

We've also added Ignite Academies in Florida, Massachusetts, and South Africa since June, with another on the way in Texas within the next two weeks. The Ignite message – combining education with exercise – is catching on around the world!

For more information, including daily challenges, UPCOMING IGNITE GROUPS IN SEPTEMBER, our book on the subject, and training for teachers and coaches, visit the Ignite site (and 'like' Ignite on facebook, too!)

The Catalyst Games are September 9! Nearly 100 athletes from all over Northern Ontario will compete to find the fittest. Known events include a hill climb up Searchmont (750 vertical feet,) a max clean and jerk ladder (with a couple of reps in between attempts) and a skills competition that includes a softball and skipping rope. The event is always very spectator-friendly. Bring a camera or video camera, your friends, and a picnic blanket. Cheer for your favourite team of underdogs or single Firebreather! Enjoy the barbecue, the colourful leaves, and the ridiculous speed, power and skill of these athletes. See what fitness is really about!

Join Our Mailing List!

For many, September is a relief: back to a predictable schedule. It's usually our busiest month for new members, and we welcome them! Beginning in September, new Open Gym members will go through OnRamp, just like new CrossFitters. They'll know the ropes (skipping and climbing!) before they launch themselves into our programming. 

Want to skip OnRamp? No problem – book Personal Training instead. We enjoy the reputation of being the 'smart gym' – let's keep raising the bar on our knowledge, skills, and community!
