Experienced Coaches

Brian Foley

Co-Owner/Head Coach

Brian has a wealth of experience dealing with athletes of all abilities from underage/beginners to Olympians and professional athletes. His passion is seeing people move well and enjoying a better quality of life. Brian firmly believes that the one hour of your day spent in Activate should make the other 23 in your day better. He gets as much of a buzz from seeing top class athletes win championships as he does from seeing a grandparent achieve good squat patterns.

As a coach, he sees it as a privilege to help people enjoy working out as part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle both physically and mentally.

When he is not in Activate, Brian enjoys football, rugby, hiking/climbing, spending time with family and friends and the occasional beer and pizza.
