Angela T. Angeles

Angela is the owner of Catalyze Fitness and Catalyze Corporate Wellness.  She's a Raleigh transplant via Oakland, California, and hails from Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Angela is a graduate from American University (Washington, DC) where she studied business and played Division I field hockey for 4 years.  She is a wellness coach, personal trainer, and group fitness instructor and loves sharing her joy for movement and wellness.

As a fitness trainer, her approach emphasizes building client trust, ensuring client safety, and mastery of fundamental movement.  She believes in identifying muscular imbalances, improving posture, developing mobility and sound mechanics, and building strength by using functional movement exercises.

As a wellness coach, she teaches the power of habit design as a means to behavior change.  She has worked with clients between 25-70+ years in age and through habit design has helped them lose weight, improve nutrition, manage stress, and most importantly build the confidence to make lasting lifestyle changes. 

In addition, Angela has also served several organizations including Discovery Communications, California Department of Public Health, and University of California, Berkeley.  She's a certified personal trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, a certified group fitness instructor with the American Council on Exercise, a certified corporate fitness trainer with the National Corporate Fitness Institute, and a functional aging specialist with the Functional Aging Institute.  

Angela is an advocate for adventure and when she's not in the gym you'll likely find her outside.  She loves mountain biking, hiking, and spending time on the trails with her dog.  She has completed several full and half marathons and a number of Tough Mudders and continues to experiment with a variety of activities from Olympic weightlifting, boxing, and rock climbing.  She dabbles in SCUBA, enjoys playing softball, and loves California red wine and dark chocolate.
