Then he moved out to the Phoenix area in 2011.

I work with athletes or general clients to help improve their overall well-being, whether that is for performance, weight loss, mobility, functional movement with daily tasks, etc. I want to be able to help in anyway that I can so the person or team that I’m working with can enjoy their lives more productively and be happy!

They can expect to get useful knowledge and a great training session. A typical session will be a warmup, followed by some SMR work (Foam Rolling), dynamic stretching, then the meat of the workout, which can be High Intensity, Set-rep training with a longer rest period (depending on the phase of training), Cardio work (intervals, usually, but not always), then I work on correctives with them to help activate muscles that have been lengthened so we can bring them back to normal (so to speak), then static stretching (emphasising the tight muscles and not the lengthened ones). The session can be between 45-75 mins.
I had the honor of having Matt Huntsman for my strength and conditioning coach for two years while playing for the prestigious Phoenix College Men’s Basketball teams of 2014-15 and 2015-16. I’ve seen great physical improvement from me and my former teammates while working out with Coach Matt as he always put maximum effort into making sure we were competing at the highest level. I am beyond thankful for the physical improvements he has helped me make, but those don’t compare to the mental attributes and leadership qualities coach instilled in me those two years. With me being a captain, Coach Huntsman was adamant in making sure I was able to help get my team to our highest potential. Some of these leadership skills he directly instructed me, and some of them I learned by simply observing how he carried himself on the job, as well as off the job. The two most important things I took away from being in his presence were, the value of good character and genuine love for people (Even if they were complete strangers, or hard to get along with). I watched him display these characteristics with passion every day. These are traits that I hope I can pass down to anyone that is looking up to me some day. I will forever appreciate Coach Matt, not only for believing in me, but for believing that he could make me a better man, because he did just that.
