About Matt 

Matt has a over a decade of experience in health and fitness. During this time has he has had the opportunity to coach a broad range of fitness modalities and to work with just about every type of person on the human spectrum. His genuine passion and enthusiasm for what he does has translated to a consistent track record of success with his clients no matter what their individual goals or needs are.

Matt's Philosophy 

To Matt, health and fitness exist on a spectrum.  He believes that for a program to be successful it must reflect that.  A balanced training regimen, proper nutrition, hydration, daily activity, quality sleep, stress management--these must all come together to help us achieve our true potential.

"True fitness isn't about hitting the gym or working out.  That's  only one small part of it.  Fitness is a collection of behaviors we perform every single day. Individually each of them counts but it's together where they add up to the stronger whole.  This is what makes us better humans ultimately.  I love this whole process and I consider it a privilege to lead people through it."

Matt's Approach

Matt doesn't waste his clients time with things that only have the "appearance" of fitness: standard cardio, toning exercises or calorie restricted diets.  He approaches every situation with the knowledge gained by his years of experience and builds his programs on life-tested methods he personally believes in.

Attention to detail, a high level of professionalism, goal-oriented solutions, a client first mentality--these are all things that Matt prides himself in.  He believes that every client deserves respect, leadership, and motivation.
