Matt is always looking for competition, and has the innate ability to make anything competitive (ask any friend or family member). Matt's workout cycle of running/lifting/biking lasted until his third year of law school when he was introduced to CrossFit. What started as a two to three times a week workout, became a five to six day a week adventure. The ability to compete with others while also competing with yourself provided the motivation he needed to improve his fitness while also changing his diet (a feat once considered unthinkable). The complete approach to fitness inspired Matt to take the next step from athlete to coach, and get his Level 1 certification. Coaching others provides Matt not only the opportunity to share his knowledge and passion for CrossFit, but also to relive the joys of achieving firsts (pullups, muscle-ups, Rx workouts) through others. After coaching at other CrossFit boxes, Matt brings his enthusiasm and knowledge to CrossFit Valley Forge, and to a new community of athletes.
CrossFit has become more than just fitness for Matt, it has become an avenue towards helping others reach their goals.
