Matthew Niles

Head Coach

I’ve been enjoying functional fitness since I was 13 years old. I started out of my garage because at the time we didn't have a gym in Bay City, Texas, where I grew up. Very quickly my mom realized I had zero clues as to what I was doing and I had no idea how to move safely and efficiently. So she made me drive with her 45 minutes to the nearest gym and learn how to move correctly, and that's where it all started. The head coach taught me about hard work and developed character in me that I still enjoy the benefit of today. It wasn't long after working out at the gym that I took interest in coaching. My head coach recognized this. He mentored me to become the coach I wanted to be. With his help, I successfully passed my CrossFit Level One Certification and started training and helping people. I am so grateful for that opportunity to be around someone who believed in me so much. I love coaching and competing very much but they do not define me, as a person. The only thing or person that defines my purpose and worth is the one true God. He gave me a deep love and passion to coach people and train them into the person they were designed to be. My mission is to love and serve the health and fitness industry and this mission drives me everyday to become a better coach.
