I was a fan of Matt's for some time before I really got to know him. After I got to know him, hear him talk shop, and see him work I became a monster fan. I learn from Matt constantly and I'm most impressed with his passion to serve the folks he works with. Trust me when I say I'd refer anyone to work with him—he gets results. The industry needs more people like him.

There are very few coaches in this industry that have both a foundational knowledge base of the science and theory behind training along with the world-class communication skills necessary to provide dynamic results for their athletes and clients. Matt is one of these people. Between his work with his clients and his educational workshops across the country, I highly recommend Matt’s work as one of the top experts in the field of smart strength and conditioning.

The ultimate compliment I can give a fitness pro is that he or she is "the shit." Matt is that and then some. I have rarely come across anyone as passionate, gregarious, and willing to learn than he. Anyone would be lucky to work with him.

Few coaches have what it takes to change a person's life. It takes more than just expertise. It takes heart, character, integrity, and love. Matthew has all of them in spades. If you want one of the best in the business, you've found it.

I have been fortunate to add Matt to my circle of trusted fitness professionals. I can attest to Matt’s unyielding passion to help people move and feel better. Furthermore, I have the privilege of helping him reach his own fitness goals. I can tell you first hand that he works his butt off to lead from the front. Bottom line, Matt is an honest, genuine, and driven individual who will do whatever it takes to help his clients and friends.

There are two sides of the coin when it comes to the healthcare world: knowledge and how you connect with individuals. You can learn all the knowledge in the world, but you certainly cannot teach the human side of coaching and interaction. Matthew is far and beyond one of the most impressive communicators in our generation of coaches, and is constantly in the trenches to become better each day.

Matthew is a strength coach and manual therapist, one of the new hybrid clinician/coaches that successfully merges the best of both worlds. If you have training or rehab issues lingering, he is well-equipped to help you meet them. Matthew is extremely knowledgeable and a highly-sought after individual for his expertise in movement, strength, fitness, and rehab. Most importantly, he's an awesome dude, and all-around nice guy!

Matt's energy and devotion to his craft are immediately recognizable. I always look forward to reading and sharing the educational content that Matt consistently puts out. His contribution to the strength and conditioning field brings a breath of fresh air for the next generation of coaches. I believe he will only bring the field to an even higher level.
Strength and Conditioning Coach – New Jersey Devils
I've worked with Matt on several projects for STACK over the past few years. I consider myself fortunate to have him as one of my go-to guys when I need an expert opinion on a challenging topic. Matt also shows an incredible commitment to educating fellow coaches, athletes, and fitness enthusiasts with quality articles and helpful social media posts, such as his series on '30 Days of Low Back & Hip Health'. This passion for educating others makes the fitness industry a better place. I can't wait to see what he has in store for the future.

Matt's ability to combine formal education with experiential learning as a coach, practitioner, and athlete has contributed to his ability to educate and inform the masses. The quality of information that he shares is constantly growing and evolving. He is someone that we could all learn from and should be taking the time to follow.
