LOVE FOR CAT
“Cat’s knowledge of wellness, combined with her experiences shared as stories, engages her workshop participants authentically. She strategically weaves personal and small group activities into the presentation allowing hands-on connection with concepts shared. I recommend Cat as an engaging and value-added workshop presenter.”
“Recently I attended Cat Coluccio’s “Rocking Wellness “ event for women in Christchurch. I’m so glad I went despite turning up by myself. From the moment I walked in, she made me feel so welcome and it was easy to connect with the other fabulous women. Cat has such a sincere and warm delivery as she shares from her personal story and all the wisdom she has earned through the years. She knows her stuff!! I left with some valuable information and practical ways to become healthier both emotionally and physically. What a lovely evening! Thanks Cat.”
“I didn’t think that the 10 Day Get In The Game Mindset Course would actually be of benefit to me. My mindset was already in the game. Being accustomed to overcoming obstacles and achieving goals, I was silently confident that I wouldn’t learn anything new. That was until I had to address the question, ‘What are you fearing if you change?’ Identifying these fears, along with the rest of the course, allowed me to see how my fears and current mindset were stopping me from achieving my dream. Now, I am so pleased that I chose to do this course. I am working through the fears, have a new mindset and on my way to seeing my dream become a reality. This course will help you take your game to the next level”.
“I first met Cat 20 years ago. She mentored me for two years. During this time she instilled in me life principles and challenged me to become the best version of me I could be. She saw potential in me that I never knew I had. She believed in me, pushed me out of my comfort zone and would not accept my excuses. She refused to let me settle and accept my perceived limitations as my norm. It was those two years of mentoring that formed the foundation for much of my personal and career success and achievements.” Now, as my personal trainer, she is once again causing me to raise the bar and, not to settle for the mid-life status quo. Cat is not for the faint-hearted. She will push you, motivate and inspire you to your best version. She is an amazing, beautiful, strong woman. She has a big heart that only wants the best for you. I consider it an honour and a privilege to have her in my life
“Cat Coluccio has been training me for the last couple of years and words can not express what a kind and humble lady she is. Firstly she always puts others ahead herself and will bend over backwards to help you achieve your goals.The Training is all to work in with each person’s requirements, of each individual adjusting to their capabilities. I would recommend Cat to anybody wanting to help lose weight and get fit and she will certainly will do a good program for you. Cat Coluccio has been a rock in my life, and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to train and get healthy. I love this lady as a trainer and a friend – she listens to you and will guide you along the way.”
“I joined this 6-week challenge to help me develop more of a positive mindset and to find love for myself and my body. Completing this challenge helped me to love every inch of my body and to be grateful for its so-called ‘imperfections’.
During the 6 weeks, I found a part of my self-confidence that I feel has been missing for years now. Cat was there every step of the way to encourage me when I felt tasks to confronting. Cat gave us daily tasks to complete which kept us engaged and checked in with us on a daily basis. She provided a safe and supportive sharing environment that helped us get through the 6 weeks as a group. I would recommend this challenge to anyone who is struggling with loving themselves and their body.”
“Cat Coluccio, was one of our speakers at the inaugural HerStory Women’s Global Empowerment Conference in Auckland, on the 29th February 2020 and held our audience captive with her story. She not only is an uplifting and inspiration speaker but she infused her musical creativity into her presentation as well. If you are looking for speakers with an X-factor, I highly recommend Cat Coluccio.”
“I connected with Cat via her website as I was too embarrassed to go to the gym but knew I needed to do something for myself, we ended up emailing back and forth and finally she talked me into meeting her at the gym and I signed up that day! Cat has an awesome easy going, friendly, caring personality that makes you feel relaxed and very welcome from the first time you meet her. She works with the whole person – not just physically but also mentally and emotionally. Cat is passionate about fitness and it shows in her challenging but fun workouts, she can be tough (as she needs to be sometimes) but also caring and nurturing and is a fountain of knowledge from food/exercise to daily/family stresses and making time for yourself which we all deserve. The best thing I ever did for myself was to email Cat.”
“I was privileged to hear Cat speak at a recent conference in California, and with just her opening line, my heart was moved. She has the ability to speak to directly to you, your thoughts, yes even in a crowded room of over 100 persons. Perhaps it was because I recognised her genuine desire to open up and be raw right off the bat, to be vulnerable, and to share. Or the simpler (and more potent) fact that Cat is such a relatable person. Honest. Authentic. Genuine.”
” I have been very privileged to attend Cat’s ‘Rocking your Midlife Live Event’ held in September last year and also have had 1:1 coaching with her this year. I found her course very motivating and inspiring. She not only embraces midlife herself but also helps to energise the rest of us to embrace our midlife and set clear expectations that this is going to be the best chapter. She lifts people’s spirits through fun, positive and very inspiring personal stories and she is a constant inspiration. I am determined to rock my midlife with excitement and knowing I have the support of and encouraging community and Cat’s guidance I can already see the change in me and Cat has challenged me to reach my full potential. I have recommended her to a number of my friends also who would really benefit from Cat’s guidance and support.”
“Cat Coluccio is an inspiration to Midlife women, encouraging them to be their best self. She spoke at an event I hosted and her strength lies in her courage to be vulnerable. She has a powerful voice that resonates with the Midlife woman looking to rock her life.”
“A very down-to-earth lifestyle and well-being speaker. Cat provided NZCB with two fabulous presentations over 2 days. She was fantastic and a perfect fit for our event. She had such great integrity, energy and passion. She really inspired our audience and has rated well in the feedback. Feedback included ‘I really enjoyed Cat Coluccio. Some excellent knowledge ‘takeaways’.’
“I have been lucky enough to hear Cat speak – once at her own event and once when she was a guest speaker. Cat has a wealth of knowledge and a warm engaging way to get her message across to others and she is just a lovely person in general.”
“Cat’s Life ON-Purpose workshop was incredibly valuable for helping me review 2019, what worked for me, what didn’t and what I want for 2020. Also, I’m leaving with actionable steps to get started on achieving my goals for 2020!”
“Cat is really welcoming and kind and spoke in a friendly manner, (as opposed to condescension or “know all.”) Her relatability was good and breadth of knowledge appreciated.”
“It was fantastic to have Cat speak at the HerStory Global Women’s Empowerment conference – Auckland in Feb 2020. She spoke with confidence, connection, and her words resonated strongly with the attendees.
Cat had a beautiful way of weaving her personal experiences into powerful lessons and takeaways for the audience. I would HIGHLY recommend Cat as a speaker, and know she brings a unique experience with her musical abilities.”
