I have been working with Matt for about seven years.  He was my swim coach in middle/high school  for five years and has been my personal trainer for two. In high school, Matt's swim coaching prepared me to become a Division I athlete in college. During summer breaks, he now helps me with weight and cardio training in preparation for the upcoming seasons.
I can't say enough about Matt.  I've struggled with back and knee injuries for years and he has been motivational, optimistic and determined to help me reach my goals every step of the way.  Every day he comes in with a personalized plan and even a back-up plan if certain exercises start to cause me pain.  There is never a day that he says "well I guess there's nothing we can do" or wastes time trying to come up with an alternative.  He is always very well prepared and constantly looks for ways to help me get stronger.
He is flexible in terms of when and where he can meet (he's even willing to work outside in the pouring rain), personable, kind, and clearly very knowledgeable through his education and personal experience.  He has helped build my confidence as an athlete by offering insightful advice and exemplifying what it means to be a hard working ambitious person.

"I have been training with Matt for a little over two years. I have loved the process and results I have gained from my once a week training. I feel stronger in sports and am more confident about myself. He is also great for helping me with my weak spots and learning proper stretches."

It helped me to understand which muscles are weaker than others and what specifically I need to build and pay more attention to, particularly my chest muscles, shoulders and hip flexors.  The exercises to help strengthen these areas have helped me to obtain a better strength balance throughout my body and remain balanced and in control when I do the exercises.  I learned new stretches for muscles that I didn't even know were affected by swimming and dryland exercise, and that has helped me reduce some of the tension after workouts.
I have enjoyed the methodical approach to the exercises and the gradual progression of increasing sets and repetitions.  Each exercise is not extremely strenuous, but gets enough work done to see improvement and gradually strengthen a certain area.  The stretches are very helpful for both this training and everyday swim workouts, as they stretch the muscles that tend to tighten up.
I definitely feel more stable and in control while swimming and my strokes feel stronger.  I am able to swim and run for a longer period of time at a faster pace, and I have reduced some of the tension in my hips and chest.  The stretches have helped reduce soreness and have made it easier to continue through the weeks of practices.

Matt Rogers trained me for three triathlons over a number of years.  He is an excellent trainer, and knowledgeable about all aspects of sports training.  He knows when to push hard and when you should recover.  He is very motivating and has a lot of patience.  He also integrates other disciplines into the workouts such as Yoga and Pilates.  I highly recommend Matt Rogers!

I feel stronger like I am doing something to help my swimming.  I am very tight and learning new stretches has been really good. I am still imbalanced, but I think I am better than when I started.  I didn't realize how much protein I should be eating, and I have been trying to incorporate more into my diet.

Training and the Functional Evaluation has helped me because I found out that I need to work on my squat technique.  I learned about recovery and to always eat after exercising. I enjoy how everything has paid off in my performance.   It has helped me extend my muscle capacity and improve times in swimming.

The Functional Evaluation and Training has helped me pinpoint my weaknesses and improve them with the most efficiency.  I found out that I need to eat more protein after workouts.  I enjoy setting goals and being able to reach them.  It has helped me stay in better shape and has improved my swimming.

I learned from the evaluation that I needed to ditch conventional exercises and focus on a custom workout regiment. Not only in regards to working out but also with meal choices. For example, instead of doing chest presses with my grip horizontal it was better on my shoulders to perform this exercise with cables and my hands being vertical. I previously had an injury in my right calf (soleus) and was taught stretches and strength exercises that eventually got me back to running long distances again. In regards to food I learned that "whole wheat" or "whole grain" can be deceiving. It is important to read the packaging to see if it says 100% or "whole" on the ingredients list. My evaluation and training helped me because it was custom fitted to what I was doing at the time. When I was swimming it was a lot of low impact exercises with stretching. Learning the human body along with the exercises helped me to become physically fit.

"Matt trained my husband and I for roughly 2.5-3 months. Twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 6-7am.
Each session included various customized exercises that Matt had already planned for us for the day. We trained at the gym at our apartment building so we used most of the machines provided at the gym. We worked on cardio, muscle work, weights, stretching, etc. By the end of each class, we were sore in a good way and felt that our full body was worked out well.
While waking up in the morning and dragging ourselves down to the gym was a pain, after every workout session, we felt energized and excited to start the day. We cannot underestimate how much hard work Matt put in planning ahead and making our workout sessions incredibly potent. We didn't waste time waiting for him to think of new exercises. Matt was always well prepared, thorough, on time and we found him to be professional and polite. Matt always reached out to us for reminding us on the night before each workout and in case of any changes to the schedule, let us know well ahead of time.

Starting out, my husband and I had specific concerns and goals that we wanted to meet by the end of our targeted time. Husband had lower back pain so Matt made him do special stretches and weight exercises to help with that. I had postural concerns which, by the end, I felt were improved quiet a bit and my upper back and shoulder area became stronger. I also asked Matt to add ab exercises.
Matt also helped us with improving our food intake/diet via my fitness pal (an app we downloaded on our phones). He would suggest incorporating certain foods, and vitamin supplements to our diet and even suggested some brands of certain foods that might work better for our health.
Overall, if it weren't for impossible scheduling, we would have still been training with Matt."

"Wonderful Instructor"

"My friend and I hired Matt to teach my 2yr old and her 1.5yr old basic swimming at our home. He was wonderful with them and at the end of the summer my son was comfortable going under water, blowing bubbles and floating on his back. I would recommend him and hope to have him come back next summer."
