NASM Certified Personal Trainer
Growing up, Matthew Foley struggled with his weight and often felt at a loss about how to lose it. Although he was active in boxing and karate since the age of five, he always seemed to be ten to fifteen pounds overweight. As his insecurity grew, Matthew was at the gym more and more, burning himself out and having a hard time getting to the gym. The breakthrough finally came when Matthew let go of the pressure and began working out to find joy in who he is in the moment: not obsess over what he wasn’t yet. This clearer mindset led to an interest in working out smarter, not harder. He learned then that starting back with the basics and developing an individual routine leads to more consistent improvements and recovery.
Through his own weight-loss journey, Matthew discovered he wanted to spark the same love of fitness that he found in himself in others, and went on to achieve his NASM personal trainer certification. He has spent the past two years helping clients of different ages, experience and handicaps gain flexibility, strength and endurance. More than anything, Matthew believes fitness is for everyone as long as they have the dedication, know-how and space to do so. As a personal trainer, Matthew is dedicated to keep his clients safe, informed and remind them that they’re already doing a good job just by being dedicated.
“To me, the hardest part about going to the gym is getting to the gym. That’s why we have to remember to celebrate the small victories. When you wake up dreading a workout but stay committed to a routine you deserve to feel proud. It’s about being consistent not intense: smarter not harder.”
