10 out of 10 (18 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 Very glad to have someone of his caliber so close
By Alan Lendaro / Danbury, USA

I had my first session with Joe after not seeing an RKC instructor for a very long time. I've been training on and off with Kettlebells since 2005 and was looking for an experienced eye to make sure I didn't have any bad habits that would hurt me down the road. Joe did an excelent job of assesing how I performed each of the 6 key exercises and identified some shoulder issues that require me to abstain from snatching until they are resolved. He suggested a regular routine of Arm Bars, Get-ups and Dead Bugs which I am wokring on and adivsed me on what I can keep doing with my KB in the meantime. Joe provided solid, frank feedback and valuable advice and has a very personable training/coaching style. Looking forward to working with him in the future.

10/10 He made strength training an addiction
By Jonathn Leff / Montclair, USA

Joe is a fantastic coach who has converted me, late in life, into an advocate for and addict of strength and kettlebell training. He somehow manages to combine a relaxed coaching style with exactly the right amount of encouragement to help me reach my goals. During sessions, he is careful to tailor his queues to the most essential and useful (knowing that I can only really absorb a handful each time), but is always ready to answer technical or technique questions.

10/10 Very Knowledgeable Coach
By Tara M. / New York, United States

I've been training with Joe for over 5 years and cannot recommend him highly enough. Joe is an extremely knowledgeable coach. He is able to explain new techniques in an accessible way and has a keen eye for minor tweaks in form that make all the difference. He has a no b.s. style that I really appreciate. Whether you're a beginner or a serious athlete, if you're looking to learn from one of the best, Joe is your man.

10/10 Always helping you shore up and improve technique!
By Meghan K / New York, USA

Regardless of where you are in your athletic development and movement journey, Joe will always be able to provide you with effective coaching that meets your personal needs and will help you to achieve your goals. As a great and adaptable coach, Joe is able to meet his athletes and movers where they are and then get them comfortable and strong in places beyond--making sure improvements in strength and technique go hand in hand. Joe is extremely down to earth as well and strikes a good balance between keeping sessions light-hearted, while also making sure you put in the good work!

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!
