Meet TeamVH!

Joe Riggio – Founder | President

Hi I’m Coach Joe. I’ve been helping people look great, feel great, and perform their best for over 25 years. Fitness never came easy for me coming from a big Italian family (lot of pasta), so I made it my life’s work to help others become the best version of themselves.

We have created an amazing team of professional coaches to help guide you every step of the way! We can’t wait to see you in the gym.

Dan Goodman – Owner | CEO

Hi I’m Coach Dan. I’ve been an athlete (football) my entire life and wanted to help other athletes, their parents, and our community get the most out of their lives.

To me Varsity House means a dedication towards providing our community with lasting results and a place that becomes the BEST HOUR OF THEIR DAY.

We can’t wait for you to experience all the TeamVH has to offer!
