Our mission and vision to help folks develop long-term healthy habits and build fitness community is becoming a reality. Since 2015, we have been creating a unique small group personal training and nutrition coaching business unlike any other.
I’m Matt, a Doctor of Physical Therapy and head honcho here at Village. I split my time between Village Physical Therapy and Village Fitness. I love creating culture and empowering our team team to change lives.
Nicole, my lovely wife, has her bachelor’s degree from UC Davis in exercise science and is the head coach at Village. She can out-deadlift just about anyone. She leads the charge for the wonderful coaches at Village. Together, Nicole and I have over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry.
We started Village because we saw the issues with the fitness world.
Everyone is striving for a quick fix or fad exercise program. But it doesn’t work long-term.
I grew tired of people showing up to me as a personal trainer having just finished another all shake program, 30-day cleanse or no-carb diet. Folks think they need to eat very little, exercise like crazy and they will lose weight. Yeah, you lose weight, but it doesn’t stay off long-term. In fact, it wreaks havoc on your metabolism and makes it tough to lose weight the future.
What people need is sustainable long-term change and accountability. Village was born out of our desire to deliver long-term change, community, and results to as many people as possible.
In November of 2016, Nicole and I welcomed Cooper James Klingler into the world and he has rocked our world!
Meet the team
Alli brings her vibrant and joyful personality from Anchorage, Alaska. She finished her Doctorate in Physical Therapy last year at APU.
She started working at Village when it first opened in 2016 to fill in before taking a physical therapy job. Once, she was licensed, she loved Village and the clients too much to leave! She can now do a chin-up and is huge proponent of weight lifting for it’s effects on the bod!
Dan is a true student of fitness and personal training. He is always learning and looking to improve and become the best coach possible.
He plays the electric guitar like nobody else, cycles, and is really disciplined with his nutrition!
Erik is a unique blend of creativity and scientific knowledge of the human body.
He is currently pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy at APU. Even though he is passionate about how the body moves and science, he sees each individual client as unique. All have limitations and distinct things about the way they move. These idiosyncrasies drive Erik’s creativity to new heights and make him uber-passionate about Village.
Calyn brings positivity and energy to the VF team.
She is currently pursuing her doctorate in physical therapy at APU. She loves seeing people get excited about movement. She is always encouraging our Village clients to “be thankful for the gift of movement!”
On the weekends, she loves dominating in beach volleyball.
Steph is the Customer Experience Manager at Village.
She communicates with clients current and future to make sure their experience at Village is amazing. Everyone who interacts with Steph knows she is professional, friendly, and organized.
Steph does a little bit of everything at Village form answering the phone and setting up new clients to ordering supplies and watching Cooper, Matt and Nicole’s little one.
