About Me

I am sensitive to the fact that it takes more than just technical knowledge to build a lifestyle of vitalty and energy. It's an emotional and psychological battle as well.

I honestly like working with newbies/beginners more than accomplished athletes.

I encourage internal motivation versus being an external push for you.

Learn to be self-sufficient anywhere anytime without a gym membership using minimal equipment.

Since I can only be with you 2-3 hours per week, that leaves the other 166 hours on your own. It is my job to make it as easy as possible for you to form lasting, sustainable habits for the rest of your life. The attitude that I foster with my clients is one of self-acceptance and non-struggle. I ask them to relax their face/neck during exercises as well as speak to themselves in the mirror. You must be ready to change your relationship with exercise toward it being a gift to yourself, instead of being a guilt-driven activity.

My movement named Off the Bench Fitness is all about generating energy to the community through the best source of energy there is: exercise. When you are 'off the bench' you are participating as a unique contributor to the world.

What to Expect

A marathon not a sprint. Educational and support environment. Some stretching and myofascial release included. Highly personalized; it's nothing like a group exercise class where you don't learn. You won't be incredibly sore don't worry either; the intensity will be just right.

Client Success Story

Client with with back pain for years (after a car wreck) without being able to figure out how to work out or be pain free. She enjoys slamming medicine balls down after powerfully scooping them up. A great stress relief from her busy work day. We ignited her love for body-weight and gymnastics-like training. She is addicted and is likely a life-long exerciser never to take for granted the ability to move her body confidently ever again.

Client Feedback


Mai L.

He made working out fun and exciting because he believed in me. He’s very thorough and professional. He assessed my current body, workout routine, eating habits, and favorite types of activities. Each session was unique and he modifies different workouts as he sees your body develops and constantly checks your posture and foot position. Then he does the impossible: he found fun things to do so you don’t realize you’re working out. He also offers homework, food planning, and so many other types of training on his site. Seriously talk to this guy, he can also refer you to his strong network of other amazing health professionals.

Coach Matt is fun, passionate, and knowledgeable. He has a trained eye for the human body and how to improve movement, increase flexibility, and relieve pain. Training with Coach Matt is always a fun time because of his attitude. I highly recommend spending your time with him, you won't regret it.
