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 most likely go over the 1 hour time limit as long as both parties weren't in a rush to get anywhere else. 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.

Workouts could take place at a private studio, gym of your choice, or the outdoors. I have several pieces of exercise equipment: Kettlebells, Bumper Plates, TRX, Bosu, Resistance bands up to 220lbs resistance/tension, steps, etc. Program could be made in numerous ways so I won't explain much on here since clients' goals and previous experience vary.

Client Reviews

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.

That was an awesome workout. I really enjoy your classes. I feel that it's definitely making me stronger and helping with my running efforts. I ran 6 miles yesterday and had something left. I was not too sore at all from last weeks workout.
Matthew, This is so over due, but required. I am not a person to take advice and listen to others point of views, it's not that I think I am above that, it's because I never thought that I could because I always felt unworthy and secondly that it would not make a difference. But boy that is so far from the truth. For the past year I have place several fitness goals that I have wanted to achieve, and believing in myself wasn't instilled into my head. But your positiveness and telling me that if I think and believe it, I am half way there. You continued to tell me that yes I can and guided me on how to achieve them. A prime example of this is having me incorporate interval into my training for running my half marathons, broad street as well as a 5k. In the last 6 months I have been able to run 2 half, 1 ten miler and 3 5k's. Each and every race I have been able to achieve a personal best. But today running the 5k at work it really hit home. You told me to get my a$$ out there and run those god awful hill intervals. And it is because of that advice I was able to kick it up a notch and sprint up that last hill to the finish line and picked 2 individuals off in the process. That hill always got the best of me, but today I was able to conquer it, because of your advice. So I want to thank you for your support and encouragement and just being you! Hugs, Christine
