Sabrina is the owner and operator of Catalyst Training Center. She graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2011 with a Bachelors degree in Exercise Science and an emphasis in Health-Fitness Instruction and has been working as a personal trainer since 2010. When first introduced to the career of personal training, it was apparent that Sabrina had a story that many people would find motivating. From a background of multiple injuries in sports, to being overweight, it was evident that something had to be done, and that is what started her journey in strength training. 

Sabrina found much of her path to personal training through Powerlifting. She started in early 2012 when she began her internship and was introduced to the sport. Since then Sabrina has done nothing but win, taking 1st place at 2014 Senior Nationals with a 660 total (and a torn quad), 1st place at the 2014 WPC World Championships totaling 969, and most recently receiving a Pro powerlifting total of 1111 in the 198 weight class and qualifying for the 2016 Arnold Classic.
