I was also a District 2 AAA champion in football at Pittston Area High School. During my four years there, we established a record of around 35 wins and 8 losses. After graduation, I had the intention to play football at Ursinus College until I realized I had more enjoyment being involved exclusively in Track year round (indoor and outdoor). I have never regreted this decision as it has given me the incredible opportunities to compete at places football would never be able to, such as the University of Florida, Duke, Penn, Virginia Tech, and Penn State to name a few. I had the experence of earning multiple conference championships, suffering a few hard losses, making incredible friends, and watching U.S. and Olympic champions compete a few feet away. Collectively, these experiences I had in track and field have given me the passion to coach and help those who want to improve their performance. Ask anyone, for as much as I love to comepte, perform well and win... I will take one of my athletes who do well and perform their best over my personal accomplishments any day.

*Note: custom (and discounted) packages are available depending on location/distance and your availability. 25% off in certain situations so it does not hurt to inquire about training if pricing is an issue. Special discounts can be made for team training.

Goal Assessment, range of motion, review past training techniques, and some education about proper warm-up, training, cool-down, and expectations of both coach and athlete.

Warm-up 10-20minutes (dynamic, stretching, etc)
Drills/Technique 10-15 minutes
Training Workout of the day 20-30 minutes
Cooldown 5-10 minutes

Workouts would last slightly over an hour (though you can leave at the 1 hour mark). Warmups could be done ahead of time if need be and more of the focus can be emphasized on the actual workout and event technique. Resistance training (strength training) and flexibility exercises can be also provided to be done during the hour session OR during time without my assistance. I can always accommodate an athlete and adjust the workout based on previous fatigue, muscle soreness, upcoming meet, specialty focus, etc.

Ultimately, I'm committed to helping you succeed. Through education, progression, and instruction, you will see great value in our session(s) together.

Coach Matt did an excellent job helping my daughter! He met her at her level and came up a workout plan that was fine tuned just for her. He was friendly, patient and encouraging, but most of all gave her a lot of information to help her build her skills. He did a great job!

Coach Matt really helped me out a lot by helping me fit a thorough fitness routine alongside my work. He was checking up on me and always requesting feedback based on how I was doing and modifying my routine based on it. If I need to adjust something he always got to it promptly and effectively. Thanks a lot Matt!

Very knowledgable and provided my ha daughter with exactly what i was looking for in hurdles/sprint coach

Matt has done a brilliant job programming and motivating me in pursuit of my strength goals. He has been a fantastic coach!!!!

My daughter who is in middle school just loved working with coach Matt. His training is incredible. He is patient, and pays attention to every detail. He really relates well to the youth. He was able to pinpoint areas where my daughter was doing things incorrectly and guided her along the way to make the necessary corrections in her hurdling technique.
I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to improve their area of expertise.

We just had our first session w/ Ryan. He established a good rapport w/ my daughter and through some early drills was able to quickly begin to focus in on some of the things she needs to improve. Very impressed with his knowledge and energy.

Matt is a great coach to learn from, he is very knowledgeable about our muscular system and how different exercises target different areas of the body. I learned a lot from our session and I highly recommend him to any athlete!

Just completed 1st session with Coach Matt. Excited to work with him: knowledgeable, inspiring and down to earth.

My daughter really liked working with Coach Matt. He kept her motivated throughout the session. He understands her goals and is focused on helping her meet that goal. He improved her techniques and form on stretches and exercises that she has been doing for a long time.

Matt did a great job with my 17year old son. He showed him so new training techniques and is looking forward to his next session!


I just wanted to let you know how pleased Sarah was with her first coaching session this past Thursday. She came home enthused and motivated for the up coming track season. She was comfortable with your style of coaching and thought that your critique and suggestions to her hurdling form will be very helpful. She has started working on the drills you gave her and would like another session when the weather improves.

We had our first session with Coach Matt this morning. My 8 year old son Devon really enjoyed his first session and doing the drills. Matt was very knowledgable and very engaging. We both are looking forward to his next training session and I'd have no problem recommending Matt be it for youthful or mature athletes. Great first session. Thanks Matt.

I was very impressed with my 12 year old daughter's first session with Coach Matt. He took the time to give the necessary background on what her training regiment would consist of and provided me with the information I needed for her to reach her goals. My daughter looks forward to additional sessions with Coach Matt as she is excited to work with him.

Coach Matt did a wonderful job with my daughter. She really likes his personality and approach to coaching. He is very engaged and seems to truly enjoy teaching.

This was our first experience with a coach and Matt exceeded all expectations. He honed in on exactly what my son (HS junior, sprinter) needed and packed a lot into the first session to motivate and excite him, but also let him know he's gotta work. Looking forward to many more productive sessions with Matt.

Coach Matt was great helping my 13 year old with hurdles, starts and running techniques. She learned a lot of drills and tips specific to hurdles which is just what we were looking for. He explained everything to her in a positive and energetic way, demonstrated and did the drills with her. She definitely grew more at ease with the hurdles as the session progressed, will definitely continue on with Coach Matt!

I enjoyed training with Coach Matt. He has helped me prepare for my upcoming volleyball season by incorporating various conditioning exercises to ensure I would be well rounded in endurance and strength. I hope to continue training with him after my season ends!

Excillent coach!!! Very knowledgable and a great motivator. I noticed improvements with my running and other people have noticed too. My running times as well as weight have decreased significantly. I have been working with him for 4 month now and will continue.

Coach Matt is great with helping my 12 year old boy with his running technique, the guy actually runs every drill with him!!! While helping him improve his form and technique highly recommend this coach to anyone interested in becoming a better runner

It was a very good first session.

Coach Matt is a great, knowledgeable coach. If you are looking to get any faster you should definitely book him; he knows what is doing, talking about, and goes about a good way of teaching you. Not to mention he is a coach who actually shows you instead of telling you like most coaches. Everything from technique to experience Coach Matt is superb.

Coach Matt was very personable and gave great instruction on how to increase speed and shave off time. Look forward to continuing to work with him.

Coach Matt was a great coach. Very informative on all subjects we discussed and he had good ideas for my sprint workouts.

I hired Matt this year because I was actively looking to work with someone who would help me improve my overall health and fitness. Matt has proven himself to be dedicated to pushing me to my limits, whilst being aware of my limitations. Results! 37 pounds lighter, 3 dress sizes smaller, off my blood-pressure medicine, looking toned and slimmer and still counting.... Matt is a delight to work with and really cares about his clients. I have met some of his other clients who all say the same thing...Matt gets you the results you are seeking making your goals attainable and getting there fast and fun! If Matt was in LA he would be worth his weight in gold! (Don't go to LA Matt) Hire him as your trainer if you need one - you'll love the end results, I promise
