Matt “Chip” Cipolla -Coach
Matt has been active and having fun in some way shape or form for his entire life. However, he was a late bloomer when it came to organized fitness and athletics. He joined the Mens Rugby team at the University of Rhode Island while he was obtaining a degree in Chemistry. He also spent a lot of time in the weight room and continued to do so when he moved to California to attend graduate school at UCLA.
During grad school, Matt was first exposed to CrossFit, and he was instantly hooked. It was at CFLA School of Mastery that Matt found himself surrounded by peers, trainers, coaches, and mentors that have helped him to drastically improve his well-being by inspiring him to optimize his training, diet, and entire lifestyle. The result is a level of health and fitness that has him feeling and looking better than he ever has before in his life.
These events have served to develop Matt’s strong passion for health and fitness. He put in the time and effort to make a career change and is now a Full Time Coach and the Facilities Manager at CFLA. Matt brings his passion for life, health, and fitness to his coaching. His vision is that he will help YOU to experience the same positive influences and changes that he has experienced, so that you can transform your life every single day.
