About Ismaeel
Owner of Catalyst Coaching

Hi! I'm Ismaeel (but you can call me Ish).


I'm a National Strength and Conditioning Association Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA). I was first introduced to the weight room in 2014 as a high school student who was keen to improve as a rugby player and just feel more confident.


I've continued my fitness journey ever since because the gym was the first thing I ever considered myself to be "good" at. As a result, it gave me the self-efficacy to improve other areas of my life. 

My mission as a coach is to make sure that you reach your fitness goals without you feeling like it's detracting from other areas. Moreover, I want to show you how a commitment to physical self-improvement can also feed into aspects such as your professional life in a positive manner. 

My fitness journey was a long one, and is still ongoing. But it added so many positives to my quality of life in both a direct and indirect way. 

At the end of the day, you have the vision... I will be there to give you the guidance to see it through.
