Chase Isle

Chase Isle

Chase’s introduction to the fitness world started when he was a young athlete growing up in small town Montana. With limited access to quality coaching and proper fitness techniques, he strived to teach himself and gather as much research and understanding of both athletic performance and overall fitness as he possible could. He started applying the knowledge he had acquired and began exercising with intent and focus towards becoming the fastest, strongest and most functional version of himself. Through this process, he developed a passion for perfecting his understanding of body mechanics, strength training, and sport performance enhancement.

Chase’s passion and dedication to maximizing his personal health and understanding the complexity of the human body lead him to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at Montana State University, while also being a collegiate athlete. In addition to his degree in Kinesiology, Chase went on to earn a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certification in personal training and a NASM Performance Enhancement Certification. He has used his education, certifications, and personal training knowledge to help guide and motivate hundreds of clients to accomplish their fitness goals.

A long-lasting passion and experience in the fitness industry has helped him realize the importance of the human connection from both a physical and mental aspect. Realizing this, he decided that to reach and connect to as many people as possible he needed a taller platform to stand on. After 15 years of personal training in the corporate sector, and with the expertise and knowledge of partner Eddie Davila, the Urban Fitness brand was created! Through Urban Fitness, Chase hopes to offer a facility that allows members and guests an outlet to be creative and functional in utilizing fitness as a way of life.

Fun Facts:

  • When Chase is not training clients, himself or working around the gym you will find him with his wife Sheryl and their 3 dogs exploring all that Montana has to offer.
  • He is an avid MSU bobcat and Minnesota Vikings fan
  • Enjoys golfing and watching anything related to the supernatural.

Eddie Davila

Eddie Davila

Helping people and continuing to learn and grow are things that Eddie is extremely passionate about. He genuinely enjoys helping people in any way he can. It just so happens that he has a deep-rooted interest in fitness and how it can combat disease and have positive impacts on the mind and body (and biceps, of course). He is fascinated at how a stimulus (e.g., exercise), coupled with good eating habits and quality rest, can alter the body’s physiology in such a way that living, breathing, and moving become easier, enjoyable, and so rewarding! Life is good. Fitness is just one way to improve the quality of it and in so many ways! Eddie is VERY thrilled and humbled to be able to share his passions with the UF Team and the UF community!

Eddie earned his bachelors in exercise science and his masters degree in exercise physiology and nutrition from Montana State University (MSU). He’s been working in the fitness industry for the past 15 years. He also works as a Clinical Exercise Physiologist in Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation at Bozeman Health Deaconess Hospital where he works directly with cardiac and respiratory patients undergoing evidence-based rehabilitative exercise training. Further, Eddie also serves as a Kinesiology adjunct instructor at MSU. Lastly, he volunteers on various committees for the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and other organizations to help review, edit, and create exercise science educational materials for professionals and students within the health and fitness industries.
