    • -Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist (FRCms)
    • -Reiki Level 1

    In Matt's time as an athlete, Marine, student, and now trainer he has found that everyone defines health and fitness differently. One similarity he has found however is many view health and fitness as freedom. What Matt loves about Fitness Together is they have given him the freedom to teach fitness from his point of view. In his 3 years training at Fitness Together he has learned the importance of training not only his body, but his mind and emotions as well. It is incredible to not only guide our clients to success with weight loss and muscle growth, but to watch them grow as human beings and take control of their lives.

    in my free time I like to
    Outside of Fitness Together, Matt spends his time practicing his three hobbies: Ju-Jitsu, guitar, and chess. He also enjoys reading a variety of books from exercise science to philosophy. Matt finds a tremendous benefit from incorporating meditating and journaling as his daily morning routine to set his mind right for each day.

    After a youth full of sports, Matt found his passion in exercise science during his freshman year at Penn State University. Through learning the ins and outs of muscle physiology and truly learning what the body was capable of, he knew the health and wellness field was the perfect career for him. His earliest experience began by leading large group fitness classes and outdoor bootcamps. It wasn't long before he started working one on one with clients of varying fitness levels and goals. Once he moved back to his hometown it gave him the opportunity to coach students, semi-pro, and pro athletes through sports performance and conditioning. Matt is truly grateful for his wide range of training experience that led him to FT where he can focus on working with clients and helping coach them through their weight loss journey and post injury recovery. It is truly special to see the growth and progress of each client. Matt takes pride in helping clients make a positive impact on their life.

Working out is a lifestyle and has a big impact on his physical and mental health.

After graduation, Chris worked at a small gym in Towson where he was eager to help people anyway he could. The client relationship he built with his clients is truly what pushed him to continue his career and passion and fitness. As trainers, we spend a lot of time getting to know our clients, not only their injury history and wants/needs/goals when it comes to fitness, but the personal things like family and hobbies, as well as what makes them “tick”. That is where the “personal” in personal trainer comes in and is arguably just as if not more important than any exercise or method that is applied to their program. To him, that is what being a trainer at FT is all about: reaching that deeper of understanding with your clients. Every trainer he has had to pleasure of working alongside does this exceptionally well and is one of the things he is most proud of when he talks about FT.
