Training Philosophy: I believe in helping my clients, and anyone willing to learn, construct a habitual mindset for their own health and fitness. Working out is not just about the way we look, how much weight we can lift or how fast your mile is.
Exercise wellness is a lifestyle choice that exhibits your strong mindset and proven ability to adapt to change and find success which will carry with you forever, far outside of this gym.
About Me: I am married to my best friend Kelcie! I am a sports fanatic, highly competitive and love what I do. On the contrary to my fitness beliefs and what it should entail to be successful, I am actually into gaming quite a bit.

“Coming to Parkwest Fit Lab has been game changer in my fitness. My trainer Matt is amazing, Every workout is different and interesting. I have been pushed way outside my box and have new goals that I never knew I wanted.
The personalization is great not only for fitness progress but also when dealing with injuries. This customization has been key in continuing to move forward. I am also participating in the small group challenges which allows me to train with all the different trainers. They are all fantastic and excited to help with your goals."

"I got a gift of 10 sessions last summer and I was pretty psyched but figured I'd use the sessions and move on. I lifted in HS. I did StrongLifts 5x5 for a while a couple years ago. I figured I knew what I needed to know and I didn't expect to sign up after my 10 sessions since it was just a matter of getting myself down to the gym.
Turns out this was one of those cases where you don't know what you don't know. Matt has a GREAT understanding of exercise physiology and has helped me improve my form dramatically. I'm now lifting more with fewer injuries (I stopped StrongLifts when I injured my knee squatting).
Matt has great routines so I'm never bored and he is very passionate about fitness and health. So you never end up thinking "he just phoned that one in". Not once. And he pushes me HARD. Harder than I'd push myself. And he has a good sense of humor. He takes fitness seriously without taking himself too seriously. After my 10 sessions were up, I didn't hesitate to commit to a full year with FitLab. It's an investment for sure, but a worthwhile investment for your health.
Also, Parkwest itself is a really great gym. I used to be a member when it was International and it has come a long way. The staff are just great, the facilities are always clean. Equipment is fixed quickly when it breaks. Plenty of towels. Not too crowded most of the time. Really, there's nothing bad to say about Parkwest. Pretty affordable too"
