Our Team

History of Sabertooth Community Fitness

Matt Meyer started the gym in November 2011 as Axcelerate Fitness. He remodeled his two-car garage into a well-equipped (but cozy) workout space, quit his day job, and dove headfirst into the world of gym ownership.

Over the past several years, Matt and his co-owner Tim have steadily grown the gym clientele to where it is today: a diverse group of members of all ages and abilities, along with a passionate team of coaches who come together every week to challenge, encourage, and stand alongside one another on the journey to better fitness, and ultimately a better life.

In December 2014, Sabertooth Fitness moved to the current 5,000 square foot facility in Minneapolis.

Team Members

Our mission to be the friendliest gym ever starts with our staff. From day one we strive to make you feel like you belong, and to help you see the potential within yourself.

We come from a variety of backgrounds. Some of us have been competitive athletes since we could walk. Some of us didn’t find fitness until later in life. Just like you, we’re striving to be better versions of ourselves. We’re working and growing right alongside our members, doing our best to lead by example.

Our coaches and staff are here for one simple purpose: to help you reach your goals. We are the sherpas on your fitness journey, with you every step of the way!
