Confident and Conscious Coaching with the NCFIT Collective – Business of Fitness #75

Today we’re sitting down with two integral parts of the NCFIT Collective team; M.D.V (Matt DellaValle) is a seasoned guest and co-host of the Business of Fitness Podcast. MDV is the Chief Fitness Officer at NCFIT, managing all fitness, coaching, and programming operations worldwide for the company. Over the past decade, MDV’s journey has taken him a few different directions—coaching at some of the best gyms in the biz (CFNE, Reebok CrossFit ONE, CrossFit ONE Nation & NCFIT), leading seminars as part of CrossFit HQ Staff, and managing fitness partnerships for Reebok INTL. Before all this fitness stuff, MDV earned his law degree from William & Mary Law. He is passionate about coaching, fitness, and American traditional tattoos.


Gabe Yanez manages Digital Sales and Marketing at NCFIT. If you are a part of the NCFIT Collective community, you may recognize him as your go to resource for all of your questions and needs. Gabe has coached functional training for 7 years, holds his Level 3 CCFT Certification, and has been working with gym owners throughout his career. Prior to NCFIT, Gabe helped gym owners with nutrition and retail as a part of his role with Puori, one of the first supplement companies born out of the CrossFit space.


Today Jason is tagging up with M.D.V and Gabe, NCFIT staff members, seasoned coaches, and the front line for all things NCFIT Collective. In this conversation, the boys are diving into common questions the company receives in regards to programming, coaching development, successfully introducing new coaches to your community, working with athletes of all skill levels, managing large classes, and time management. With over a decade of experience in the fitness space, this team is dropping major knowledge for coaches and gym owners alike.
