A qualified Educator, Personal Trainer, and Life Coach, Cat Coluccio is a vibrant international speaker, and a champion of midlife women who want to stop procrastinating, get unstuck and live their lives ON-purpose, creating a legacy for their families and communities.
She is an experienced, authentic communicator who delivers presentations that are both inspiring and full of practical take-aways that bring value long after she has left the stage.
A transplanted Australian who has called New Zealand home for over 20 years, Cat is a mother of 2 and a grandmother of 1 and lives with her husband in Auckland along with far too many cats and chickens. She shares stories from her experiences of working as a high performing lecturer, music director and musician – often forging her way in male dominated fields. She also speaks about her journey through burn out to eventual reinvention at midlife as a personal trainer, life coach and speaker.
Cat’s 30+ years of educating, coaching and training people from various industries, as well as her own creation of many successful online communities over the past 7 years, sets her apart from other trainers who are only now discovering how essential online groups are to business growth and client retention. She is the founder of the Groups Attraction Formula – a premium coaching program for business owners who want to grow their business by building an authentic, online community.
Having also seen how many women struggle to be productive in bringing their entrepreneurial dreams to life, Cat provides interactive workshops utilising evidence-based research that addresses the core of productivity. She especially zones in on how clutter can impact a person’s mental wellbeing, focus, and output.
Cat is especially passionate about seeing women break through gender and ageist barriers and has built a dynamic online community to support this mission. Her business page has grown to over 50 000 followers and her vibrant group Rocking Midlife™ has over 5500 members from all around the world.
2018 saw Cat on a panel at FierceCon in LA after holding her own successful Rocking Midlife™ event in Auckland. She was featured in a 6 page spread in NEXT Magazine and interviewed on the Breakfast Show following her Rock Your Jeans campaign where over 100 women from around the world sent their photos in response to a study that said that women over the age of 53 should not wear jeans. In early 2019, Cat was the winner of the Fast-Track Scholarship at the National Conference of the Professional Speakers Association in New Zealand.
Cat has written three books, “Girl! Get over yourself and get in the Game!” the best selling “21 Hacks to ROCK your Life!” and recently released a Teen Edition of the 21 Hacks book. She is the host of Rocking Midlife® – the Podcast and lives by her personal philosophy: “It is never too late to have a new beginning in life.“
