"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't Quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.' " - Muhammed Ali
Matt has been the Owner/Director of Athlete's Quest since 2006 and has been involved with training athletes since 1999. In 2002 Athlete's Quest was off and running. Matt is always striving to keep Athlete's Quest operating at the highest possible level. Besides attending countless training courses and seminars to further his knowledge and education, he's earned certifications from IYCA, USA Weightlifting, NSCA Fly Solo Program, (which is specifically designed for performance training of young athletes) and many more.
Matt has always followed his love of sports, from playing Pop-Warner football as a youth to participating in high school wrestling, football and water polo. Following his passion eventually led him to coaching various successful high school and youth programs around the Southern California area. Matt has always enjoyed working with kids. He's coached children in school as well as before and after school programs in the city where he grew up.
While doing what he loves best, he began to see that athletes of all ages need supplemental speed and strength training outside of the normal practice regimen of their respective sports. It is here that he decided to combine his passions for coaching sports and teaching kids alongside friend and mentor John Davis. Since then, Matt has trained many different types of athletes from all ages and abilities ranging from 6 years of age to the professional ranks.
