Your Journey Starts Here.
Please do not attend your training session if you are experiencing the following symptoms:
Fever, shortness of breath, cough, runny nose, sore throat, loss of smell/taste, nausea, or any other Covid-19 symptoms.
I am fully vaccinated but will wear a mask if you would feel more comfortable.
Thank you for helping keep everyone safe and healthy.
NEW GARAGE GYM
I recently renovated my oversized double garage into a functional gym for my personal training business.
Commercial gyms are now open again, but that doesn't mean that everyone is feeling ready or comfortable going back.
My gym is heated, open all year, and has everything needed to have an effective, safe workout.
With weather permitting, I often keep the garage door open and utilize the driveway space as well as have open fresh air for your session.
My gym is located in the Hamptons, in the West End of Edmonton. Feel free to contact me for a free consultation and check it out!

"The climb to success is treacherous and take's fortitude, but without a Sherpa failure is inevitable."
Matt exemplifies what I want in a trainer. He actively listens and seeks feedback. He is constantly striving to learn and improve, he is creative, positive, and tough!
When the pandemic hit, Matt didn’t fade into the shadows and feel sorry for himself. He rolled up his sleeves, made outdoor workout kits, and created a really fun and tough OCR league. Very impressive.

Over the course of my training with Matt, I’ve gone from lumpy-wino to fit AF. At 39, I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in. Matt is constantly coming up with new exercises to keep things from becoming monotonous and he tracks my progress so I can see how far I’ve come. Matt is hands-down the best trainer you’ll find in Edmonton. He’s versatile in his knowledge—CrossFit, Weightlifting, Obstacle Course Racing, and Running.
I’ve lost 15lbs.
I’ve never felt better about myself, and even through Covid Matt has led me through a plan to stay on top of my health and fitness.

"In just my first 10 sessions I've leaned how to Snatch, Clean and Jerk, Toes to bar, Handstand Push Up, Kipping Pull Up, Double Under, and most of all discover I have the ability to do things I couldn't imagine doing before training with Matt". I've now fell in love with Functional Fitness and training is my favorite part of the day.

As a former Hockey player with a promising future, sudden injury sidelined me and my window had passed. Over the next few years my fitness level was on a steady decline. As a competitive person I needed something more than just working out for the sake of it. I've been working with Matt now for almost 2 years and he's shown me the performance side of fitness, how it can be competitive, measurable, rewarding, and downright addictive. I never dreamed I'd be doing ring muscle ups and handstand push ups at 6 foot 5 and 225 lbs. I'm currently in the best shape of my life, and more importantly have my passion for training again. "I highly recommend working with Matt, if you want to achieve your full potential".

"I lost 47lb in my first 8 weeks working with Matt, It was life changing and I actually had a really good time doing it". Matt did a excellent job of making the workouts both fun and challenging.
