Matthew pursued a Bachelor of Physical and Health Education while at Queen’s University. During his time there, he looked not only at the physiological implications of exercise, but behavioral and social as well. He believes there is a lot more to it than just calories in and calories out. By exploring many ways to look at health and fitness, he truly can help anyone take the experience they have and turn it into results.
After completing four years at Queen’s University, he continued his education by taking several courses each year, reading and rereading countless books and journals, and practising around the city. Some of these courses include NSCA’s Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Fascial Stretch Therapist, and StrongFirst Kettlebell Instructor. Matthew views continued learning as essential to growing his understanding of myriad health and fitness issues present today.
Matthew enjoys working with the busy professional, mom, and dad who have little time. By showing them the most effective ways to exercise and train, he can help all busy professionals be efficient with their time and results. Using a holistic approach tailored to everyone’s unique experience, he can zero in on the most effective thing to help right now, and what you should be aiming at. Matthew believes we all have different starting points, and it’s important to meet everyone where they are. By listening closely to each client’s individualized goal, Matthew can then use his unique knowledge of anatomy, behavioral psychology and experience to help them reach it.
