About Matthew

I am a graduate of Salem State University with a B.S. in Exercise Science. I am A.C.E. Certified and have been personal training for over ten years, currently, I have my own gym in Billerica MA, Optimal Fitness, while also training my clients out of Marblehead Fitness. I have worked with clients of all ages, 14-75 years old. I do personal training and small group training with an emphasis on variety and keeping workout exciting. As part of personal training, I tailor workouts to the specific needs of each individual, keeping injuries and personal goals in mind. I am committed to helping my clients become the best versions of themselves through exercise and living healthier lifestyles. My knowledge and a strong passion for fitness are a direct reflection of my clients achieving their personal fitness as well as mental goals. Recently I started my own personal training business, Optimal Fitness, with the hope of branching out further on my quest to better the lives of my clients. In my spare time I write blogs on trending topics about both fitness and nutrition, mainly an emphasis on nutrition.

Matt is a chill and wonderful person to train with. He keeps the environment lite and comfortable and pushes you to the limit. Sometimes you wouldn’t even notice that you are pushing your limits. I’m one month into the training and already seeing the results! His chilled approach would not drain us mentally and physically! That is a great trait for a trainer! I highly recommend Matt for anyone looking for a personal trainer for your well-being!
