Matt was born in Colorado, and raised just outside of Portland in Newberg, Oregon. Seven years ago, he moved back to Colorado with his older brother to be around a more active, fitness-oriented environment. Basketball was a big part of his life growing up and helped him realize his passion for fitness. His daughter Analyn and fiance Felicia have been his biggest inspirations and supporters on his personal training journey.
In 2015, he began his fitness journey at NPTI Colorado where he graduated with his NASM Personal Training Certification. In 2017, he expanded his knowledge with small group training and began teaching kickboxing classes. This is something he plans to continue to grow with at Denver Gym and Fitness. He has also attained additional advance certifications in Corrective Exercise and Youth Exercise.
Outside of his fitness world, Matt loves to spend time with his family going to the lake, camping, and traveling. Traveling has become a big part of his relationship with his fiance. They have a goal of traveling to all fifty states together. Matt’s other passion is his love of Disney. They take annual trips to Disneyland to keep that passion alive and that is also where he proposed!
