WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
This past summer I made the choice to commit to getting stronger and I chose Chris at Grit to help me achieve my goals. I told him what I wanted to achieve and from there he customized a plan for each month. I train 3 times a week and I have to say I never…
2020 was life-changing to say the least. As I found myself post-grad and in the midst of a global pandemic, I was in the worst shape I had ever been. I was in a weird place mentally and the worst physically. I never was the athletic type and only focused on school for all of…
After growing up playing soccer, participating in dance, and running to keep a bit of fitness, I’ve been racing triathlon since 2011, more competitively sine 2013. There hit a point after the 2015 season that I had maxed out what I could accomplish on my own as a self-trained athlete, so I signed on with…
Matt’s program has helped me with injury prevention, building muscle and strength, and improving my overall health. You will love doing this for yourself! Being stronger, leaner, happier, and more capable can make for a better life. Don’t wait! Do it now!
Over the time that I have been working with Chris I have seen great results. I have lost over 40 pounds, reduced my body fat percentage by more than 50%, and took off nine inches from my pants size. I have become a much stronger runner, decreasing my pace by 2 minutes per mile.
I can’t say enough about Matt and Chris. They truly care about you, the person. They LOVE what they do. They focus on constantly learning and then passing along that knowledge to their clients. They practice what they preach and themselves serve as role models.
Chris takes the time to put you through an initial mobility assessment, to identify any asymmetries and compensations which helped me work through injuries and course correct to prevent further injuries. Chris planned unique workouts customized to the goals I wanted to achieve. I’m the strongest I’ve ever been and can’t thank him and Grit enough!!
Chris has gotten me to physically do what I mentally committed to. I have the confidence to be able to lift more than I thought was possible with the guidance of such a knowledgeable coach!
Grit is a great place to be and all the trainers are fantastic! When you are there – you feel like you are among friends. Just a fantastic atmosphere!!
I started working with Chris when I was probably in the worst shape of my (very young) life. 20 pounds heavier after a year working my first desk job. I needed the motivation and consistency. Chris is wonderful for both of this things! Not only did I finally start to see the scale move again, I learned so many techniques that I can use and apply on my own.
If you are thinking about joining Chris and Matt’s program, make the best decision of your life and start. I had been in and out of gyms for years with no real direction and probably was lucky I didn’t get injured. The investment in a strength training program with Chris and Matt has benefits beyond the training (sleep, diet, mind) that make it one of the best investments I’ve ever made!
As I’ve gotten older, my exercise goals are no longer based on what I look like in the mirror; I’m now more focused on maintaining my overall fitness and mobility. Both Chris and Matt have demonstrated a level of expertise that is head and shoulders above any other trainer I have ever worked with and I trust them completely with my health. They are constantly challenging me to improve in a fun and safe environment!
The first day I visited the gym was in September it was kind of hard in the beginning but I hung in there. Matt really works with you. He meets you where you are which was great thing. Matt is a great trainer he keeps me wanting to come week after week. It is never boring it is a bright future. People have noticed my transformation. I would recommend Grit to anyone, it is the best thing that has happened to me in a long time.
We both like the fact that the classes are never the same and the class size is never too large. It makes it feel like the trainer is giving you personal attention so it feels more like one on one than a full class. The coaches are top notch, personable and highly knowledgeable. They really are committed to getting you to your goals.
I tell everyone who asks me what I’ve done to lose 65lbs that I work out with the best trainer around. Someone that keeps me motivated and someone that really pushes me hard. If I talked to someone that was interested in joining Grit Fitness and Performance I would give them Matt’s number and tell them it would be the best thing they have ever done.
Happy Hour! That’s how I refer to my 6:00 AM Training Sessions at Grit. It truly is the best hour of my day. I would encourage anyone willing to improve their athletic abilities to join our gym. I promise you, you will see the benefits almost immediately and you will be surrounded by coaches and peers encouraging you all the way.
