Meet our team
Jason Usry, CPT
Facility Director | Business Development Master Coach
I began my fitness career 16 years ago as a Les Mills Group Fitness Instructor. I moved up the Les Mills ranks by completing my Advanced Instructor Modules and becoming an Elite certified Group Fitness Coach. My passion grew for fitness as I took the stage alongside International Instructors from all across the world. I received my Personal Trainer Certification from the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in 2005. Over the past 16 years, I have worked at several local gyms in the Aiken/Augusta area. This experience was tremendous.
In 2012, we opened Village Fitness, a boutique facility that was to become known as a “results driven” facility, unlike our “Big Box” membership driven competitors. Over the past 6 years, we have become known for our training programs, group fitness classes, and our personalized approach to fitness. We have built our business around the “complete” member experience and the journey that each member takes as a part of our VF Fit Family. We pride ourselves on having the best trainers, instructors, and nutrition coaches available to assist our members’ fitness journey on every level and every step they take towards a healthier and happier place.
In 2014, I became an Alloy Master Coach and since that date I have installed our training programs in over 200, of the currently 1200 and growing, licensed locations around the world. I have certified over 2000 Alloy coaches in our programs and training methodology.
As we grow and expand in the upcoming years, it is my desire to continue to be a leader in the fitness industry and be the example for other successful business owners to model.
Member Experience Director
I have been with Village Fitness since 2012 and serve as the Member Experience Director.
While working at Village Fitness, I’ve realized my passion for people and helping make each Member and Guest feel welcome. I love serving our members and making sure we are the BEST part of their day, EVERY DAY!
When I’m not working at the gym, my passion is cooking and baking for my family and friends.
Membership Sales Director
I have been with Village Fitness since 2018 and serve as the Membership Sales Director. I started my fitness journey in 2012, when I lost over 60lbs in 6 months with the help of a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness classes. The following year, I became a Group Fitness instructor teaching dance and Body Pump.
After becoming a Group Fitness instructor, I decided to leave my 10 year career in wireless cell phone sales and management to work in a gym full time. I came to Village Fitness because I believe that we are a results driven gym. I enjoy not only selling memberships and teaching Group Fitness, but most importantly, I get to sit down with clients every day and help them make a plan to reach their goals.
I find joy in helping others become the best version of themselves through fitness. At Village Fitness we strive to make sure that each and every one of our clients are given the tools and encouragement to reach their individual goals!
Robin Mccarthy, CPT
Head Personal Trainer
I have been with Village Fitness since 2012 and serve as Head Trainer in the Personal Training Department and a Group Fitness Instructor.
I am committed to helping clients achieve a healthy lifestyle and understand everyone is unique, and so are their needs. I strive to provide a positive and energetic atmosphere where clients leave feeling successful and accomplished.
Katie Usry, CPT
Personal Trainer | Marketing Team
My fitness journey began through my love of dance. I stayed active through college as a member of the dance team at Clemson, and went on to coach for several years after graduating with my degree in Psychology.
My love for the sport easily transitioned into a passion for training, mentoring, and cultivating that passion in others. I took this love into the community by getting Zumba certified which quickly led to obtaining certification in other Group Fitness classes followed by obtaining my ACE Personal Training certification. Now, not only do I get to help others create a better life for themselves, but I also get to call it a job!
I have been with Village Fitness since May 2015 and love the community we have created here.
My goal each day is to provide a safe, supportive, and fun environment in which my clients can achieve things they may not have known they could!
