  • Matthew Brandal

    GYMGUYZ Owner

    I have 14 years of business experience in general management, sales, marketing and product management. I have been involved in sports and fitness my entire life and now rely on corrective exercise to relieve degenerative disc issues in my neck and lower back. I am proud to be the sole franchisee here in Arizona representing the GYMGUYZ brand!

  • Chellie Thomas

    Certified Personal Trainer

    I believe that movement is medicine and taking our daily dose is important. Be that through walks, cardio, hiking, strength training or whatever works best for YOUR body. Finding the right balance and time for you is so important and your body will thank you for giving it what it needs. I started my fitness journey young, when my father co-owned a gym and I was able to see and take part in many areas of fitness. I went on to get a dance degree from Dean College and then moved into bodywork- Reiki, Massage therapy, energy work. Movement made me feel so good and brought me out of depression, which inspired me to teach classes. I have received many (100+) group certifications including Zumba and Strong Nation, and also many more personal training related courses. I love training clients, adapting to their particular needs and seeing how they get more efficient and comfortable with movement and overall confidence. In recent years, I also had been part of presenting at many fitness trade shows with the Strong Nation program as well as training other group fitness instructors as a AFAA Master Instructor. I believe in lifelong learning and will continue to keep giving clients and students the best knowledge possible.

  • Pedro Angulo

    Territory Manager

    Like our personal trainer Chellie, I truly believe that movement is medicine. After working in a physical therapy office and learning from some of the best doctors for three years, I found my calling to be in preventative medicine, personal training to be exact! I love motivating those around me to accomplish their goals, and ultimately helping people believe the fact that anything is possible. I have helped bodybuilders get bigger, athletes get faster and stronger, endurance athletes go farther, and helped many John Doe’s get off the couch to be happier and more energized than ever before. My goal is to increase quality of life through movement that is right for you. Let’s work together to make your goals a reality!
