What Matt's Students Have to Say

“Matt has helped me with new training methods to increase my core strength and balance. He’s helped me better understand how to physically stay strong and healthy.”
"Working with Matt was one of the best decisions for my golf game. Every session Matt used diagrams and quick videos to help illustrate what I was trying to be achieve. He was always working to develop cues or analogies that clicked for me personally about different movement patterns and made sure to keep detailed notes about workouts to ensure we used the same cue throughout our training. After a few months of working with Matt I shot my best round in over 5 years. I have continued to see my swing and results become more consistent and my scores lower. I highly recommend anyone at any level train with Matt if they are serious about improving their golf game.”

“I’ve worked with Matt for about a year, and I highly recommend him. He made me realize that if the body is trained properly, the swing will fall into place and have fewer back injuries in my case.”
