As an athlete, Matt likes to lift VERY heavy objects and try feats of athleticism often called “pure insanity”. Matt, presumably since he was a wee lad, is the class heckler, Twinkie supplier, doesn’t know the meaning of “quit”, and is responsible for all general mischief at Aether.
All kidding aside, Matt is a very smart guy with a great personality, as well as an ability to relate and deal with people very well. Matt’s focus is strength work, and he is responsible for getting folks into personalized strength programs that will have you achieving goals never thought possible. Don’t let that fool you though, Matt can take part in MetCon and completely annihilate whatever is at hand.
“I believe that often the small things that might not seem that important are the cornerstones of discipline, dedication, and passion for something bigger than ourselves. As an active member of my local church and a true believer in being a servant for others, I try and build relationships the reflect just that. For me, life is about selfless service—because there is no higher calling. I believe that family comes first and everything else falls in to place. I believe that more than a destination, greatness is a journey that never ends.”
