Who We Are

Catalyst Athletics was founded in 2006 by Greg Everett, who shortly after took over The Performance Menu journal, started in February 2005 with partners Robb & Nicki Wolf. Everett is the author of the books Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches and Olympic Weightlifting for Sports, co-host of the Weightlifting Life Podcast, and publisher of The Performance Menu journal. He has coached over 40 national and international level lifters, including multiple national champions and national record holders, Pan Am and European Championships competitors and medalists, and World Championships competitors from multiple countries. He’s a USA Weightlifting International Coach, and was named 2021 Danish Coach of the Year—the first non-Danish coach to be awarded the honor. As an athlete, he is a fifth-place finisher at the USAW National Championships, masters national champion, masters American Open champion, and masters American record holder in the clean & jerk. Follow him on Instagram, Facebook, Threads, YouTube and TikTok.

Co-owner and coach of the competition team with Greg is Aimee Anaya Everett. She is a USAW senior international coach, the first female coach in the US to coach a weightlifter at the Olympics, a national champion weightlifter and masters American record holder. She is also the head weightlifting coach for HWPO Training. Follow her on Instagram, Threads and TikTok.

We relocated in 2016 from Sunnyvale, California to central Oregon, closing our commercial gym business and transitioning into a private training facility exclusively for our weightlifting team.

Greg's training programs and methodology are used by athletes, coaches and gyms around the world—currently having been used by over 101,701 athletes.
