10 out of 10 (14 reviews)
 Joseph Boffi has been passionate about athletics since childhood, playing baseball, soccer and basketball as well as participating in Tae Kwon Do. During his time in Yorktown High School in New York he was Co-Captain of the junior varsity lacrosse team and Defensive end and Tight end on the football team. Joseph engaged in club lacrosse at Northeastern University in Boston but realized that his interests laid elsewhere. He began studying the martial art of Muay Thai Kickboxing at Sityodtong Boston under Kru Mark Dellagrotte. Upon graduating from Northeastern with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, Joseph began working for a small start up company that took him New York City where he began training and competing in Muay Thai under Joseph Sampieri and training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under John Danaher at Renzo Gracie Academy. Spending so much time at the academy made him realize that he wasn't cut out to sit behind a desk all day and his passion was fitness. Joseph switched careers and became a Personal Trainer at NYSC. Currently, he is the Co-owner of Catalyst S.P.O.R.T. in the heart of NYC. He holds a CPT from NASM.

10/10 Educated and Funny
By William Sturgeon / Marshall, United States

I had the pleasure of meeting Joe as an assistant at his RKC 2. Let me begin by saying this guy is hilarious. Joe is a very easy going person with a great sense of humor. He is a great guy and an amazing coach. This guy really has an eye for technique and making sure you are doing things properly. He is great at demoing exercises and coaching them up, he has a great way of delivering the message and seeing the result. I would highly recommend seeking out Joe for training!

10/10 The Real Deal
By Coach Fury / BROOKLYN, USA

Joe's the real deal. He's a stellar coach, seasoned martial artist and fellow comic book nerd. Joe and I have gone through courses together and I've also been luck to have him assist me at several workshops. He's got a sharp mind that shows in his sessions. Joe's a good friend and I am very grateful for that. You're in great hands with Joe and the Catalyst crew.-Fury

10/10 Outstanding kettlebell instructor
By Kirk Adams / New York, USA

I've had the pleasure of attending 2 RKC courses with Joe. One where he was an instructor and one that we took together. Joe is a first class kettlebell instructor and practitioner. He runs a great facility and gets people results. If you're looking for a trainer, go see Joe!

10/10 My new strong buddy who watches anime
By Chris Cardinali / Bayshore, USA

I recently got recertified as an RKC this past weekend. Joe was one of the instructors at the event. He was very helpful to me in regards to what to watch for when a person is doing a certain movement. Also if I had a question he would give me an answer but help me understand the how, what and why of it. I look forward to learning from him in the future.

10/10 Cool, Calm, Collected
By Melanie Lisby / New York, US

Joe was one of the Assistants for my RKC level 1 Cert. He is the epitome of the 3 C's - Cool, Calm, Collected. He carries the attention of a room, speaks with certainty and elegance, and hears and sees everything around him. His cues are simple and direct and his passion for fitness and seeing those around him succeed shine through with every move and word. The beauty of his movement is reflected in his teaching. It is a joy to see and he is a joy to train with and learn from.

10/10 Streamlined strength
By Nora Dwyer / Muscatine, USA

Joe assisted during my recent RKC in NYC. While demonstrating the techniques Joe provided direct and simple cues. Nothing extraneous, just direct solid instruction. His feedback during my testing was calm and gave me a boost of confidence. To train with Joe or any of the staff at Catalyst would be an amazing experience, would definitely recommend them to anyone in NYC!

10/10 Excellent Instructor
By Jimmy Lopez / staten Island New York, USA

Joe was an assistant at the RKC I took in Manhattan. As the weekend progressed it was evident that whenever he had a teaching cue or general instruction it was going to be something valuable. Professional and knowledgeable with the ability to back up everything he was saying.

10/10 Awesome!!
By James Newman / Guilford, USA

Joe is an incredible instructor and coach! I was honored to have him assist at my RKC and I can say that he was instrumental in helping me achieve my BEST performance that weekend. I truly appreciated his patient instructions as he helped me dial in my technique! I couldn't have done it without him!

10/10 Great Guy. Great Instructor. Great Gains!
By Houston V / New York, USA

I've been working with Joe for over 3 years...He is the slightly older "bigger brother" I never wanted. (I kid, I kid) He was my introduction the world of Kettlebells (what I call alien dumbbells)and have never looked back. He's incredibly methodical and specific in his approach and technique when working with clients. The only way to do it is the "right way". I've currently never felt stronger! You'll thank yourself later...promise.

10/10 Dedicated, Knowledgeable Strength Coach.
By Anne L / Brooklyn, USA

I started working with Joe Boffi and his team at Catalyst S.P.O.R.T to build my strength and explosive power for Muay Thai this past year. I have seen consistent gains in my strength, flexibility and explosiveness. Joe designed such a good program for me that I feel stronger than I ever have despite doing sport-specific strength training for the past few years with other people. Also, the program he designed is flexible - I can do a version of it in almost any gym in the world or with body weight in a hotel room. This is perfect for the amount that I travel for work. I have also seen Boffi develop programs for a range of athletes and people who just want to get a fit. He is truly versatile and talented.
