Matt’s secret talents: “Music. I was in bands in high school and college. I play guitar, keyboards, drums and can sing.”
Matt is a former high school and college athlete who ran into frustration with lack of results he was seeing from his time in the gym. A true CrossFit9 “OG”, Matt discovered the brand new affiliate just after its opening in 2008. Matt worked alongside our founding owners to expand the box, including its move to our current location in the Warehouse Arts District.
Matt’s “day job” is CEO of a tech company based in Atlanta. Despite traveling constantly, he is always looking for the nearest gym to get a workout between meetings and flights. Matt says he’s thankful for the energy, discipline and focus that CrossFit brings to his professional career.
Matt says, “I love the chance to coach and support the amazing athletes and other coaches whenever I get the chance, and look forward to being back in St Pete full-time in the near future.” We can’t wait!
