COACH TONY MATT

I started my journey in the fitness industry as a personal trainer in 2002.  Like every trainer I started my career as a generalist, working with strength, nutrition, and mostly health/weight loss.  While I still have a strong base in these areas; in 2012 I competed in my first Obstacle Course Race and my deep dive into training endurance athletes started.  At its core OCR is a running sport.  I have spent the last ten years researching, creating, and testing methods to create the most resilient runners possible.  My philosophy when training a runner is to work with their bodies to strengthen and maximize impact resistance, fluid movement, and usage of kinetic energy within their natural movement patterns.
