    Matt has not only trained me, but taught me how to do these exercises properly, be careful with my nutrition and just give me an overall great workout.


    shoulder pain relief

    I became interested in Matt and GoTherex after trying other gyms and trainers and realizing that my body didn’t respond well to the one-size-fits-all approach to exercise. Matt asked what my goals were and performed an evaluation to see what we were starting with. After observing how I had unknowingly modified my movements to prevent pain and injury, he was able to create a customized workout plan that restores my normal movements and builds strength. He and his team have been great in teaching techniques to prevent injury and pushing a pace that shows results while remaining enjoyable.
