Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Science

Resistance Training Specialist®
Muscle Activation Techniques™ Specialist

Matt received his bachelor's of science degree from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse in Exercise and Sport Science in 1999. While at La Crosse he participated in the Strength and Conditioning Concentration which included several hours of hands on work with UWL athletes and students. He worked for many years in Kenosha, WI working at health clubs as well as a physical therapy and chiropractic clinic. Over the years he has had a tremendous amount of experience with rehabilitation as well as general fitness and sports training. His experience has also allowed to him work closely with physical therapists and chiropractors to the benefit of his clients.

In 2006 Matt discovered the Resistance Training Specialist™ courses. After attending as many courses as he could, he became RTS certified in 2007. The RTS program teaches biomechanics (the mechanics of the human body), and the mechanics of exercise. This information applies to all forms of exercise including free weight training, exercise machines, kettlebells, TRX, and even cardiovascular work. The information presented in RTS is critical in the understanding of the application of exercise in order to maximize positive results and prevent injuries.

Matt began studying Muscle Activation Techniques™ in 2008 and became the first MAT specialist in Wisconsin when he became certified in 2009. Simply put, MAT is a method of assessing and correcting muscle function. MAT was created by Greg Roskopf, a biomechanics consultant to the Denver Broncos. Greg created MAT to address muscle dysfunction in a very specific way that was previously unseen. It has tremendous potential to help those recovering from acute injuries, but can also help people that suffer from chronic issues.

Matt began working in Madison in the winter of 2010. Capital Fitness is the only place in Madison (and one of only three places in Wisconsin) where MAT is available.
