What's Included In The Program?
I'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me. It's easy.
I'm Dr. Matt (that's me in the video just below). I'm a physical therapist, best-selling author, and the owner of Village Fitness and Physical Therapy here in Downtown Glendora.
What do I know about losing weight and being active without pain? Not only have I coached thousands of people through their own transformations, but I've gone on the journey myself.
I started my first diet at age 11. Remember Slimfast? Yeah, did that. I talked my mom into buying me one of those giant 5-pound tubs at Costco. Two weeks later, I had lost 11 pounds. Eureka, I found the golden secret to weight loss success! But it was fools gold. The weight came back and then some. And I'm thankful for it...or else I might still be choking down those awful strawberry Slimfasts. Yuk!
I went on a search for something better. Something that actually worked. My quest for answers resulted in a 20+ year journey to figure out how to help people lose weight, become healthy, get off medications, and live pain free, full-potential lives.
Fast forward to today, and our business, Village Fitness and PT has helped THOUSANDS of people to lose weight, get off medications and be the healthiest version of themselves.
The reason that we exist today as a business is because of all the problems and dysfunction in the health and fitness world. Well-meaning people are being told that conditions like obesity, diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, back pain, knee pain, and even cancer and Alzheimers are "normal" and part of the aging process. The only "solutions" offered are pills, injections, and surgeries. Quick-fixes which may address the symptoms but certainly not the root cause.
The fitness world isn't much better. You've got fad diets, supplement/shake programs, workouts that are so intense they are incompatible with normal life.
We don't believe any of this is normal.
It's not normal to suffer from chronic inflammatory conditions in your 50's, to struggle to get up and down off the ground at 60, or to worry about being unable to enjoy your retirement because of a preventable health condition.
You and I already have EVERYTHING we need to live a healthy, vibrant life programmed into our DNA. Yes, good health, energy, and vibrancy is already inside each of us. And it's begging to get out!
The way to gain access to your body's innate health is by putting yourself into the right environment. Your body will take care of the rest.
Your health environment consists of three main areas: FOOD, MOVEMENT, and LIFESTYLE. Create an environment of health in these three main areas and you'll lose weight, get off medications, see your energy levels go up, and be the healthiest you've been in decades.
Our revolutionary Total 12 program puts you on the fast-track to creating your own environment for health to get you real weight loss, real energy, and real strength in 12 short weeks.
If you're simply looking for a place to exercise, the Total 12 isn't for you. But if you're at a place where you're looking for the accountability, structure, community, and support to create your own environment of health, this program is perfect for you.
Charlotte was worried about slowing down and being left behind by her family...
Charlotte's was tasked with picking the restaurant for a family dinner. When she told her daughter the name of the restaurant, her daughter replied "Mom, I think we should pick somewhere else. That place has a long walk and a big curb to get over. I'm worried about your knees and balance."
The was the final straw for Charlotte. She didn't want to be a burden on her family. She didn't want to slow down or be left behind. She was ready to get help and make some changes in her health. Charlotte had just had a knee surgery 3 months prior and was scheduled for another one in the next 3 months. She was struggling with her independence and mobility and having a hard time getting up and down off the ground.
That's when she came to Village. She was understandably skeptical. She'd tried bootcamps and always found them to be too intense and they eventually led to injury. She tried various diets including Lindora and Weight Watchers and always found them to work for a little but the weight always came back.
Her goal initially was just to get strong and prepare for her next knee surgery. And boy did she get strong! She followed the exact steps of our Total 12 program and got so strong and mobile that she CANCELLED her second knee surgery. 👊 Way to go Charlotte!
In the process, she also lost 50 pounds, increased her energy levels, and has become a health leader in her family. Pretty cool. Check out her video story below.

The total 12 is designed to help folks 50+ lose weight, increase energy levels, and maximize their independence and mobility for decades to come. Sounds pretty darn good, right?
I won't lie, the program doesn't DO the work for you and it certainly isn't EASY. But. It's. So. SIMPLE.
The total 12 includes 3 key elements. When folks follow them, they get amazing results. Let's go over each one in detail:
1. Small Group Training Sessions
Sessions are 50-minutes long and comprise everything you need to get an amazing workout that is appropriate for YOU.
Sessions focus chiefly on our 12 Village Movement Standards: the 12 MOST important movements for people 50+ to be strong, healthy, and lean for decades to come.
Most folks come in for sessions 2-3 days per week. Sessions are 8 people or less and led by 1 of our amazing coaches or Dr.'s of physical therapy
Sessions start as early as 5am and end as late as 7:30pm Monday-Friday and we even have sessions on Saturday's!
2. Step-By-Step Nutrition Coaching
When you start out at Village, you'll be assigned a coach to walk you through our nutrition coaching program. Thier job is to guide you through each of our three phases of nutrition coaching. You'll be handed a nutrition coaching card (pictured below) and an accompanying guide to walk you through the card. The cards are designed to optimize your metabolism for burning fat for fuel and to equip you with the neccesary skills to eat food in a way that communicates well with your body.

12 VILLAGE PRINCIPLES
Interested in our 12-week program? Fill out the form below to get started
3. Village Principles
These 12 Principles are the lens through which our clients view the health world around them. Losing weight, increasing energy, and getting off medications is all about creating the right environment. Your body already has everything it needs to be healthy programmed into your DNA. All you need to gain access to amazing health is to put your body into the right environment. The 12 Village Principles ARE that environment.
We coach our clients one principle per week in sessions, through written content, and through interactive workshops to make these 12 principles an integral part of their life.

Who Is The Total 12 FOR and NOT FOR?
NOT FOR YOU IF...
❌ You're looking for a quick fix
❌ You're looking for an EASY program
❌ You're hoping to take a magical supplement or pill to lose weight.
❌ You're looking for a gym where you can just show up and do your own thing.
YOU SOUND LIKE A GREAT FIT IF...
✅ You're ready to make SUSTAINABLE changes to body, health and lifestyle that will last.
✅ You're ready to commit 1-hour 2-3 days/week to coming INTO Village AND are willing to make changes at home.
✅ You're frustrated with current health trajectory and ready to change
✅ You're ready to be held accountable to show up for your sessions and make the nutrition changes we are coaching you to make.
✅ You have an open mind and are ready to take in our teaching and coaching.
But What If...
"I don't think I will show up or make changes..."
Maybe you've tried a workout or diet program in the past, seen a little success, and then failed. That's the norm. Across the US, 11% of gym members use the gym on a regular basis. That's abysmal. Here at Village over 90% of clients show up at any given session. 90%! Of the 10% that miss a session, it's extremely rare for someone to miss twice. Why? Because Small Group Training is a place people WANT to be. It's an environment filled with encouraging people who are working towards becoming the healthiest versions of themselves.
From a nutrition coaching perspective, we give you a step-by-step approach to making change through our nutrition coaching cards. Then, we educate on the WHY through each of our Village Principles.
Through a step-by-step program, accountability, and amazing community, our Small Group Training program is able to get you real results in just 12 weeks.
Obviously you have to show up, make the changes and do the work, but it's so much easier with a team and community in your corner every step of the way.
"I'm hesitant to spend money on my health."
"That's a car payment!" is something I used to hear quite often from new clients. This is a value issue. How you spend your money and your time shows what you prioritize. The bad news about those who value a car that they don't actually own (the bank does) is that it won't last for life whereas your body WILL. How well your body works is entirely dependent on how you care for and invest in it.
Listen, the government, big pharma, and big healthcare are NOT about keeping you healthy. If you don't invest in your health no body will.
"My spouse/significant other isn't on board with this"
You and your spouse need to be on the same page financially. The last thing we want is for your health journey to create conflict in your home. I have a few pieces of sage wisdom for you on navigating these decisions with a spouse. First, start with WHY. "Honey. I'm frustrated with _____ (something about your health or body). I want to get help with this so I can feel more confident in my body and my health .This is really important to me. It's really important to me to set a good example for our kids from a health standpoint. I need some help and I think this program at Village is the right fit for me. Would you be willing to let me do this 12-week program at Village?"
Second, start early. Telling your spouse, "there is this amazing program I think will help me change my. health. It starts in ____. Can we budget/plan to make it happen?"
"Schedule Won't Work For Me"
We've got a lot of different session times each week. Historically, very few clients have been unable to
find a time that works for them. Check out the schedule below
Monday: 5am, 6am, 7am, 8:15am, 9:15am, 10:15am, 4:30pm, 5:30pm. 6:30pm
Tuesday: 5am, 6am, 7am, 8:15am, 9:15am, 10:15am 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm
Wednesday: 5am, 6am, 7am, 8:15am, 9:15am, 10:15am 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm
Thursday: 5am, 6am, 7am, 8:15am, 9:15am, 10:15am 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm
Friday: 5am, 6am, 7am, 8:15am, 9:15am, 10:15am 4:30pm, 5:30pm, 6:30pm
Saturday: 7am, 8am, 9am, 10am
"Worried about not knowing what to do."
Our expert coaches will tell you EXACTLY what to do in each session. You need ZERO prior exercise experience to do the Total 12 program.
"Worried about getting injured"
This is the beauty of the Village Movement Standards. These 12 movements were designed by doctors of physical therapy with a step-by-step progression to ensure you stay injury-free and in fact bullet-proof your body from future injuries.
"I don't know if I can afford it."
We have a few different payment options that may make it doable for you. Check out the various payment options below.
“I don’t trust myself to get this right!”
Hey, maybe you've made some bad health decisions in the past like smoking in your 20's or buying a large tub of multi-level marketing weight loss supplements. You're worried this might just be the next mark on your record of bad health-related commitments. Our total 12 program offers a 100% money back guarantee if you're not completely satisfied with the program. You literally can't get this wrong, my friend.
“I don’t have the time”
If you don't have 2-3 hours per week to commit to showing up at Village, this program may not be the right fit for you at this time. If this is you, I encourage you to do some hard thinking about what other time-sucks in life you can change.
Could you alter your work to be remote more often and avoid the commute?
Are you committed to social groups, kids activities, or boards/committees that need to be de-prioritized to prioritize your health?
Are you staying up later than you should watching Netflix or the news?
Do you need to say NO to something else in order to say YES to your health?
“I’ll leave it a little longer and see how it goes.”
Mike is a client at Village who decided to "leave it a little longer." He came in a year ago looking to get help with weight loss. He walked out without committing to our program. Over the next year, he gained another 20 pounds. He sent me an email with the title: "I should have started a year ago, but I'm ready now." He's now lost 30 pounds and feels better than ever. The only bummer is that he started from a 20-pound deficit that he didn't need to start from.
The best time to plant a tree 🌳 was 20 years ago.
The second best time is today.
How much does it cost?
The average car payment in America today is $503/month. A mind boggling amount of money to spend on something that will only last a few years. Yet your body and your health will be with you right up to the end of your life for good or for bad. The Total 12 Program is less than the average car payment and gives SO much more.
If finding the absolute cheapest option around is most important to you, this program isn't for you.
You could simple get yourself a gym membership for $10/month at Planet Fitness.
You could joint a boot camp, OrangeTheory, or CrossFit for about $200/month.
But I'm guessing those options aren't ideal for you. You're looking for a program that's actually designed for someone 50+, that includes accountability and support every step of the way.
You could consider 1-1 training. But In southern California 1-1 personal trainer would set you back about $100/session. Two-three sessions a week and you're looking at $1000+/month.
The Total 12 is BETTER than having a 1-1 trainer. You get the coaching, accountability, and support of a 1-1 coach AND the added benefit of a community of people around you pursuing the same health goals as you.
Normally our Small Group training program is $500/month. At that price, it's a bargain when you consider the high level of coaching, accountability, nutrition coaching, and principles.
But when you commit to the 12-week program you can save some $$$.
Total 12 Cost:
$999 or $399 X 3
There are 3 ways you can pay:
1 Payment of $999 (Save $500!)
3 Payments of $399 (Save $333)
6 Payments of $229 (Save $126)
