Mental Strength Through Physical Fitness
Vital offers strength training, group training, personal training, high intensity interval training, energy system development, kickboxing, and MMA coaching all under one roof. Our mission is to train the mind, body, and soul for whatever life has for us. We value continuous education and are constantly in the books studying what it looks like to develop the body in an efficient, safe, and effective manner. We continually challenge ourselves to tap into the mental toughness it takes to thrive in today’s world. We do real work to look inward to find out who we really are and what gets in our way so we can show up the healthiest version of ourselves for you. All of our coaches go through an extensive internship both to learn the science of coaching here at Vital but, also, more importantly, the art of how Vital coaches are required to show up for our clientele.
Alongside our mission, it is our passion that whoever walks through these doors feels empowered, encouraged, and ultimately filled with the fuel it will take to take you wherever it is you want to go. Our culture, our community, and sound practice are unrivaled in today’s fitness industry. COME AND SEE WHAT THE BUZZ IS ALL ABOUT!!!
Vital training systems was founded by Vinnie Lopez in 2010. Inspired and encouraged by the great Loren Landow and Eric Telly of Landow Performance, Vinnie dove deep into the science of strength and conditioning and its countless benefits. At the same time he was under the tutelage of martial arts master coaches Trevor Wittman, Clarence Thatch and Leister Bowling, to name a few. His time as a professional fighter, working with the best coaches in the game both in the strength and conditioning world and martial arts world, helped shape and mold him and his desire to help show people what they were truly capable of both in and out of the gym.
Jennifer Lopez became intrigued with weight training and its benefits while she was still in high school. She always had a love for the sciences, and a specific interest in anatomy and physiology. She was attending UC Denver as a biology major, and her passion for the human body drove her into a career in fitness. She began working as a personal trainer in 2010 and then continued to work in many different areas of the industry including doing sales for big box gyms and working for a fitness business management software company.
In 2013, Vinnie and Jennifer combined forces when Jennifer began working with Vinnie under the Vital umbrella. This is when Vital took on its true identity. Vinnie retired from fighting, and the newly married couple were determined to make Vital a household name. They took a leap of faith and moved Vital out of renting space in someone else’s facility to leasing their own building under the Vital brand. It was in this building that Vinnie and Jennifer revolutionized fitness and personal training to transcend typical external focus to include a deeper, more intrinsic meaning: one that encompassed all aspects of the martial artist’s mind and all the physicality, resilience, and endurance of the well-trained athlete. Providing the general public with a real accessible look into what makes the greatest performers in the world the greatest was, is, and will always be what Vital is all about.
In 2021 Vinnie and Jennifer were able to purchase a new home for Vital Training Systems in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. A dream come true for the couple, this supercharged their passion for people. They live to see walls and barriers ripped down. They fight alongside any and everyone ready to take their lives to the next level. We are all fighting for something, whether it’s a fight for weight loss, a fight for strength gain, a fight for your confidence, a fight for your pride, a fight for your soul, a fight for your life… Jennifer and Vinnie Lopez have built a safe facility for you to come and WIN!
