From fat to fit, Matt took his weight into his own hands. He took the initiative, and on his own, lost 60 lbs in just a year. With a new body and a new outlook on health, Matt wanted to see just how far he could push himself and his newly developed fitness. So in 2010 he decided to join the Canadian Forces Army Reserve, and is still an active infantryman with the 48th Highlanders of Canada.
As the Army pushed Matt through many demanding fitness competitions and intensive training around the world, his passion for fitness grew. He decided to make his knowledge official and graduated from the Humber College Fitness and Health Promotion Program and became a Certified Personal Trainer. Since then, Matt has successfully trained many people from all walks of life has become both nationally and internationally certified with many Fitness and Health organizations. He is also a provincial level Boxing competitor with the Ontario Boxing Association. He’s very technical and fun when it comes to his coaching, and prides himself in combining the scientific principles of fitness and un-orthodox exercise methods inspired by the Military. You’ll always catch his clients with both progress and a smile. Matt’s specializations are fat-loss, muscle development, mobility and joint health, boxing and athletic performance.

For me what makes Matt a fantastic trainer besides his knowledge and capability as a trainer, is that he has the biggest heart and he truly cares about his clients. I have been boxing with Matt for about 2 years now and I cant believe how much stronger I am from training with him.
I've been working with Matt for roughly two to three (2-3) years. He has been a constant professional and has provided the motivation, knowledge and expertise in helping me achieve my fitness goals. His approach has worked very well for me, offering me balanced workout routines coupled with details on the nutritional changes I need to focus on. He has a very positive and nurturing disposition, yet is able to strongly encourage and lead his clients to challenge and push themselves to reach their goals. I have seen and continue to see results and definitely contribute a lot to Matt's teachings with respect to my own personal change.
Matt is a great trainer. He really takes the time to find out your goals, and develop a highly personalized plan to help you achieve them. In my case he is helping me recover my strength after an injury, and I am seeing results after only 4 sessions. Thanks Matt!
He is very knowledgeable in what he does, and my body have transformed since I started working out with him. He also is very good at managing unexpected injuries. He is able switch the planned workout moves on the fly in the case of soreness or injury and still make the 1-hour session count. I never had any problems with him in terms of scheduling as well. He was very flexible and understanding of my busy schedule all the time. I'm not sure what to add to my answer it would be easier for me to fill a questionnaire for your evaluation. However I had a great experience with Matt and CardioGo during my time working out. I'll be away during summer but will definitely come back on September to keep working with Matt.
