Matt was very kind and helpful. He explained things easily and was very knowledgeable. I look forward to our work together.


Matt is fantastic. I really needed a change-up to my normal workouts, and he gave me that. It was very challenging and got my heart rate up and kept it up. He also showed me new ways to strengthen my core and stretch my back.


Matt is an AWESOME trainer! He’s very knowledgeable, and kind. He took me through a workout that was hard and pushed me while paying attention to how I was feeling. I had headaches all day long and he helped me do exercises that were challenging but didn’t make my head hurt any worse. I highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a trainer. He will go with you wherever you want to go.


Matt was absolutely fantastic! He is extremely knowledgeable in exercise and nutrition. Matt is also very patient and understanding, but still pushes you to a great workout. Matt is an outstanding guy and I would recommend him to anyone that wants to improve their health and fitness.
