Matt, coach, grew up in a small town in southern New Mexico where he participated in sports and various other recreational activities. He joined the Army right out of high school, where he served in combat operations as an infantry paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division. Although Matt was active in high school, the Army tested his fitness by pushing him to improve his endurance, strength, and mental fortitude. Even today Matt continues to improve his endurance, strength, and mental fortitude – just now it is through CrossFit.

Matt started his CrossFit journey with Redstone CrossFit in June of 2014, and has not looked back. He has since become a CrossFit Level 1 trainer and has been coaching at RCF since May of 2016.

When Matt is not coaching, he spends his time working for the Department of the Interior and enjoying life with his wife Kim. He enjoys playing sports as well as watching them. Matt is always ready for a cold drink and good football game…and pizza (shh).
