My motivation to help people and my growing interest in the intricacies of the human body have lead me to the Profession of personal training. As a personal trainer, I began applying the knowledge I obtained through my college degree and found myself becoming more and more frustrated with the lack of results I was getting with my clients. My frustration occurred when trying to improve each and every clients “flexibility” as well as reduce the pain in which a few had come to me with. Unable to find the answers I was looking for, I was forced to turn to alternative educative sources. I started looking for classes and certification that took a more scientific and biomechanical approach to the understanding of the body. It was in my search that I found MAT.

Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) has allowed me to achieve the results I wasn’t getting through the practical use of my college education. Through MAT I now understand the importance of a proper assessment before beginning any type of physical activity. I no longer am concerned with what people can do initially because to me it is much more important to know what you cannot do. I now feel like I am helping people reach their goal of health rather than adding more dysfunction to their bodies.
