Meet The Coaches
My name is Justin Perry, I’m a coach at MVMT CrossFit.
I grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. I started playing sports at a young age from cricket, hockey, soccer, rugby and loads of others. Aside from sports I’ve also always been an outdoor kid that enjoyed any physical activity like skating, BMX racing and cross county running to name a few.
10 years ago, I decided to move to Dubai and that was where my coaching journey began. I started out bodybuilding and training clients with one-on-one personal training. Few years into my fitness journey I switched from bodybuilding to CrossFit and I acquired my level 2 CrossFit certificate before started coaching CrossFit. I’m also a qualified evidence based nutritionist.
As I coach here at MVMT CrossFit I want to create and fun hard-working environment in the community in Dubai. I’m 100 % dedicated to getting you in the best shape of your life both physically and mentally. Remember to have fun smash all your workouts and don’t hesitate to ask me any questions.
I’d like to welcome you all and wish you all the best pumps, sweats, workouts, gains, weight losses, fun and laughs at MVMT CrossFit.
I am Justin, and I am MVMT!
My name is Nikita Lord, I’m a coach at MVMT CrossFit.
Born in South Africa, fitness was always a part of my life and then I started CrossFit in 2012. My love and passion for the fitness industry grew as there is a challenge to conquer everyday. My mindset changed from “I can’t” to “I can” and that’s what I love about pushing myself in a workout.
As a coach there is no better feeling than helping a member to hit a PB or to go “full send” in a workout. I obtained my HFPA Personal Training Certificate, CrossFit Level 1, Studio Cycle certificate and Metafit HIIT certificate in 2017. While studying and clocking my hours as a personal trainer, I trained and took part in various CrossFit competitions including the CrossFit Open.
Competing helped me develop my coaching skills. You will always find me at the gym. I’m either coaching or training as this is where my heart is. When I am not at the gym you will find me outside enjoying the fresh air, having a cup of a coffee with a good book.
Fitness changes your outlook on life and I believe it makes you a better person. It made me a better person. Fitness teaches you discipline, perseverance, hard work, consistency, positive self talk and most importantly it teaches you to never give up!

My name is Cathy Rezk, I’m a coach here at MVMT CrossFit.
Fitness is not just a workout just like a single cheat meal isn’t going to make you unhealthy. Having growing up in Dubai, meant living a different life. We don’t have the outdoors like a lot of other countries do, and I wasn’t an athletic kid that did sports in school. None of my family members even remotely enjoyed fitness. I only started enjoying fitness when I joined Martial arts at the age of 16. This is where my journey started. I only saw fitness as the opportunity to lose weight. I had a bad relationship with food as eating disorders and dieting starting at the very young age of 12. I then started with boxing, kickboxing, salsa dancing, and moved on to lifting weights.
I became a certified personal trainer and nutritionist since 2013. In 2016 I found a community within fitness and I fell in love with it even more. As I fell in love with fitness and gained friends, more confidence and the ability to push myself through any limitation, I decided to take a year long evidence-based nutrition certification that officially makes me a certified nutritionist. I want to help people have a good relationship with food, the correct and scientific way with absolutely no guessing, that is customized to their preference.
I find myself and friends pushing when we are in a class setting, and that’s why I believe in the MVMT method, we will push you to what we think is best, you will get the best workout possible in, and at the end of that you will find the community cheering you for doing so. Every day is a celebration, every workout is an accomplishment.
I am Cathy, and I am MVMT
