I am Matt Bailey and I have been personal training for more than three years. There are several reasons I chose to become a trainer. I have been an athlete all my life. Being physically active never seemed like a choice to me, it is how I am made. My parents were always in the front yard playing games with my brother and I. I played three different sports growing up, so there was always a practice, a game, or a tournament to be at. Playing years of sports never comes without injury. My shoulders had taken a good beating from high school football, and as a result I was forced to have surgery on both shoulders. Being physically active prior to surgery cut my recovery time down by 1-2 months on both shoulders. The thought that I could help others strengthen their bodies to mitigate the risk of injury, or come back from an injury was a huge interest of mine. This is what initially led me to pursue being a personal trainer. I know what you are thinking, why not be a physical therapist or an athletic trainer? Those are extremely admiral professions and they are very much needed at times. I can attest to this. But for me personally, there is not enough action in those areas for me. I always loved the gym. There’s not a whole lot better feeling then reaching a physical goal you set for yourself, and I want help people reach whatever goal they have set in their mind to achieve.
I want variety in exercise, and in people. Everyone was made perfect in God's eyes - let's be healthy, let's be active.
What's performance? Where do you perform? In the gym or on the mountain? In the pool? In the woods? In the garden? I want to help you excel wherever you put your time and your energy.
