Matthew P.

Matt's passion for fitness led him to pursue a degree in Health & Physical Education from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a concentration in Exercise Science. Over the past decade, he has experience as a personal trainer, wellness coach, group fitness instructor and fitness center General Manager. During his experience as a manager, he noticed a gap in education and practical experiences of new fitness professionals coming into the industry. That discovery led him to the program at the Focus Personal Training Institute.

He continues to develop his knowledge and skills through continuing education, acquiring certifications as a coach through Precision Nutrition, Corrective Exercise Specialist through National Academy of Sports Medicine, and Hybrid Athlete Coach through Complete Human Performance
