Catherine Le

Owner & Fitness Director


I am a StrongFirst kettlebell (SFG Level 2), barbell (SFL), and bodyweight (SFB) instructor, having earned my Level 1 kettlebell in 2015, my bodyweight in 2016, my Level 2 kettlebell in 2017, and my barbell in 2018.  In addition to being a StrongFirst and TRX® certified fitness instructor, I am also a Precision Nutrition Level 1 certified nutrition coach.  

My passion is centered around leading others to live happier, more fulfilled lives through working towards strength and fitness goals and overcoming self-limiting beliefs and habits.  My goal is to lead by example, teaching and motivating others to achieve their full potential using the tools of strength training, nutrition, and self-reflection.  I believe that through the discipline of strength training, we can learn and master all the skills necessary to become our most powerful, fulfilled, confident, successful selves.

I first started training in Krav Maga in 2009 when Chau encouraged me to attend one of his classes at Krav Maga Toronto.  Since then, I have trained in Krav Maga, Muay Thai Kickboxing, hardstyle kettlebells, barbell, boot camps, and a variety of other fitness programs.

My lifelong passion for fitness and the team environment has led me down a variety of related paths, including being a three-season varsity athlete in high school (volleyball, swimming, and lacrosse) as well as leading backpacking trips for incoming first-year students at my alma mater, Dartmouth College.  I completed three half-marathons in my twenties and have since shifted my focus to hardstyle kettlebell training, strength, and conditioning.

When I'm not at the gym, you can find me hiking, paddleboarding, and simply enjoying the outdoors with Chau and Gracie!
