Cathy Dreyfus, CPT

  • ACE - Certified Personal Trainer
  • AIFE - Certified Older Adult Trainer

Cathy has always been interested in health and fitness, so she went back to school in 1999 to pursue her education in this field. Cathy came to PPT initially as an intern from Delaware Technical & Community College. She graduated in 2001 with a degree in Exercise Science, and has made her home at PPT ever since.

Cathy likes to focus on gentle motivation and encouragement towards fitness goals. In her own life, she has experienced the uncoordinated feeling of exercise and sports, but has persevered and found the importance and satisfaction of an effective workout. She has a special interest in strengthening and empowering those who, in the past, have found exercise and sports to be an unfamiliar and awkward environment. She will help you find your individual niche in the fitness center.
