Vo2max CEO Matthew Dupee began his flirtation with fitness on his high-school crew team, where he first developed a deep respect for physical discipline. Since then, he’s spent years in education and healthcare vocations, earning his fitness-trainer certification and starting up Vo2max with his wife and co-president, Jessica. Matthew and Jessica now teach others to master the mysteries of gym workouts and equipment with calculated, tailor-made exercise and diet plans. The Vo2max Fitness model combines every aspect of fitness—boxing, endurance, strength, function, and form—by offering individualized, personal attention in a group setting where no two workouts are the same.
The Dupees’ striking, battleship-gray studio fuses the martial vigor of the ancient Trojans with the interior-decorating aesthetics of the ancient Spartans, fine-tuning bodies with no-frills resistance-training apparatuses, monkey bars, and punching bags. Boxing coaches teach students how to stand, punch, and move within the ring for a high-intensity workout, and students of any age, stature, or ability enhance their health with intense, effective fitness exercises pulled from fight training, such as flipping a 250-pound tractor tire, swinging hammers, or high-fiving a steelworker. Trainees put their endurance and agility to the test with regular workouts, while a team of trainers puts their impressive resumés to work with hands-on instruction in nutrition, exercise, and boxing techniques.
