Hidden Gems: Meet Matthew Grippo of Get A Grip Fitness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Matthew Grippo.

Hi Matthew, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I started off working at local gyms in every imaginable role. From Overnight Cleaning to working the front desk, I spent years working at gyms in lower positions. I steadily progressed and moved up to other roles, including Staff Manager, Salesman and Director of Sales. As happy as I was with this progress, I knew I wanted to focus less on selling gym memberships or group classes and more on delivering results and changing people’s lives and knew that moving into Personal Training and Coaching would enable me to do so. Despite not having a large clientele base that would allow me to comfortably segue out of box gyms into my own small business easily, I left and decided to open my business, Get A Grip Fitness. The mission from the start has been to develop GAGF into a Team known to deliver the highest quality results to not only the South Denver community but beyond through Online Coaching.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It hasn’t always been the smoothest ride as I started the business with less than five active clients. I had no other form of income as I had quit box gym jobs entirely and had no other job. There are also a lot of great coaches out there, making this a very competitive market to thrive in. Through remaining dedicated to clients and delivering incredible results while doing everything possible to grow awareness around GAGF, the business looks vastly improved compared to where it was 6 months ago!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Get A Grip Fitness is a Coaching and Personal Training service that serves people in the South Denver and Castle Rock areas as well as Online.

GAGF specializes in getting the results clients are after in a way that fits their needs and lifestyles. There are options for In-Person Training Sessions, Online 6-12 Week Transformations, Month to Month Online Coaching, and Hybrid Online Coaching with In Person Sessions!

We are different from others in this market because we push the client to do the programs/services that best fit their needs and will get them the results, not what the most expensive offer is. We know getting a client to the results they want that they haven’t been able to achieve before will be infinitely more rewarding.

I’m most proud of this brand’s commitment to the client results and attention to the small details that make a client’s journey.

I would like people to know that we can accommodate any prospective client in terms of programs/options/prices, but we only do so for those who have goals that are of the utmost importance to them to reach. This might not be for everyone as we only have spaces for people who are willing and dedicated!

Is there anyone you’d like to thank or give credit to?
I would need to give credit to all the clients we’ve had. They put in work that leads to results that leads to us getting more clients and growing. Without them, there’d be no service to provide.
