Carpe Diem Strong

matthews_bioEver since a hand injury left him side lined for a sports season in high school, Matthew has been hooked on exploring ways to improve health, fitness and performance through exercise. This passion propelled him through college, earning him a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Physiology from SUNY Brockport College in upstate NY.

After receiving his degree, Matthew became certified through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) as a health and fitness instructor and also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). Matthew is one of only a few BioSignature practitioners in the state of North Carolina and received his training under the world-renowned leader in strength and health education, Charles Poliquin.

Coupled with these degrees and certifications, Matthew holds over 20 years of hands on experience helping others achieve their full genetic potential. He has spent time working with all types of clients – ranging from post-op/physical therapy, special needs, to elite/Olympic level athletes. His training style seeks to bridge the gap between exercise science and nutrition and its real world application.

Matthew grew up near Buffalo, NY, spent time in San Diego, CA and is now proud to call Chapel Hill, NC his home. When not training clients to achieve their best, you can find Matthew preparing for his next Strongman competition, training the fighting discipline Krav Maga, or at home with his wife, Alyssa, and their twin girls.
