He’s back, friends! 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.
At NCFIT and the NCFIT Collective, we get countless questions about equipment. Today, Jason and MDV list out which pieces of equipment to prioritize when opening a gym. The two get into the nitty gritty details when discussing equipment and explain both how to utilize space effectively and the best practices we’ve found being in the fitness industry (specifically group style training) the last decade. The boys aren’t afraid to ask the hard questions, discuss financials, and set gym owners straight when it comes to needs vs. wants. Whether you’re brand new to the fitness industry, or are looking to capitalize on your current business, today’s episode has great takeaways for you!
