Will power, tenacity and determination have been said to be my most dominant characteristics. I grew up overweight and struggled with that all my life, it drove me to start working out at a young age, learning as much as I could from those around me. My passion for fitness has only been matched by my passion for music.
By my late twenties I had accepted defeat in ever getting that sculpted ab and defined ripped body I'd always wanted until I came across the proper combination of diet and workout that finally showed me it is possible even for me. Since then I decided to get into physique competitions, get certified and show others how as well.
I did that and learned even more about manipulating diet and exercise to get even better results, got a job at LA Fitness and quickly proved to my clients that I knew what I was talking about. I quickly outgrew the public/corporate gym scene and opened a private facility of my own where another fantastic trainer and I take each of our clients' goals very personal and run our sessions the same way.

With his own proper combination of diet and workout
Matt learned that anyone can achieve a ripped physique.
Certified in 2008 to show people how to do what changes so many lives.
The typical client wants pretty much the same thing, toned muscles, lower body fat and overall weight-loss to my training style has adapted to achieve those results. My style and methods can be described simply as intense. As one client loves to put it- "Just as you think you're body has gotten as far as it can, Matt throws something else at you to challenge you even more."
My very first client that signed up when I opened my new facility lost weight consistently for 8 months! She lost over 60 pounds, became nearly un-recognizable to many co-workers and associates and found a confidence she hadn't had in years.
The previously mentioned lady is probably the most notable. My most consistent clients see the best results, obviously.
Poor form, poor diet.
Failure to keep clients moving and changing via routine and avoiding plateaus.
Mostly just by staying positive and reminding them of progress they've made.
It depends on the goals, but typically yes because men generally want more muscle mass and women want less.
Somewhat, but I had spent years experimenting with different workout approaches and had such a great trainer as I was studying that I was off on the right foot to begin with. Thank you, Rene Chavez.
There are some postural/strength assessments as well as cardio assessments plus some subjective information we always collect at the start of a new program, but typically I start new clients out light and progress them through a periodized program which typically lasts 4 weeks per phase, by the end of 12 weeks an otherwise healthy adult can handle any intensity I throw at them.
I have no preference, though I find bulking routines for men require less creativity, although women are more receptive to guidance.
I wouldn't go that far, but there is definitely a certain amount of venting that clients like to do and I figure whatever they need to do to relieve stress and get healthier I can listen while they workout.
