Matt grew up in Toronto and as many of his friends did, he tried any sport if the opportunity was present. It wasn’t until age 12 where his best friend got him into the sport of volleyball that he found his true calling. Currently sitting at 12 years of competitive high performance volleyball experience, Matt went through high school playing club volleyball, and helped his school team in being a top team in the City for 4 years straight. He then went on to play beach volleyball as part of the provincial team for 4 years, played indoor volleyball at Queen’s University for 4 years and spent one summer training with the beach volleyball national team. Matt has his hopes for representing his country internationally in beach volleyball with the ultimate goal of competing at the Olympics for Canada.
Matt was exposed to strength and conditioning at a young age, first focused on gaining muscular size but soon he learned how much of an impact it had on his performance. This sparked his interest in the field as he was constantly looking for ways to improve his game on the court whether it be hitting the ball harder, jumping higher, becoming injury resistant, or sprinting faster.
Matt believes fitness is essential to living a healthy life and finding a balance between hard work and leisure time. He thinks everyone should have some general knowledge about how their bodies work so that everyone can become independent in taking care of themselves throughout their life.
Matt specializes in sport specific training, strength and conditioning, and movement quality. He is driven to help people move often, move properly, and most importantly move pain-free.
