Matt and Michelle Vahey, the founders of VIDA Performance, are the masterminds behind a thriving health and wellness company that is sure to make you move, look, and feel better in every aspect of your life.
“‘Vida’ means ‘life’ in Spanish, and that’s how we approach it at VIDA performance,” said Michelle. “We approach fitness as a lifestyle.”
The Kennett Square-based company focuses on personal training, group personal training, and Corporate Health and Wellness on-site programming.
“We’re a company made up of awesome coaches who are able to teach and help others in what we believe when it comes to health and wellness and fitness,” said Matt. “We offer a very unique approach to exercise in the fact that we teach mindful, integrated movement.”
VIDA Performance’s coaches are educated and trained to primarily teach movement education. They combine yoga science with modern-day exercise science to coach people so they feel results each session.
“If you’re not moving well, you’re not living well,” said Matt. “That goes back to the essence of what we teach. When we teach fitness, we first teach how to move properly.”
VIDA Performance offers its services to people of all ages and abilities in a non-intimidating, welcoming atmosphere.
“It’s not the hour that you’re here, although that’s great,” said Michelle. “That hour is when you learn the tools. But it’s what happens when you leave that door. For me, that’s living. That’s where VIDA comes from.
“All you need is a desire to move and feel better.”
