Matt Freiman, Personal Trainer
Matt is a life long health and fitness enthusiast. He grew up playing a variety of sports and at an early age and began experiencing how working out consistently in a gym can enhance your quality of life in countless ways.
Matt is a University of Connecticut alumni with a Masters in Education, a U.S Army Afghanistan war veteran, and a former 10 year veteran Police Officer. Since 2012 he has developed a passion for endurance sports and training tailored toward 'injury prevention', having completed long distance Obstacle Course Races, dozens of Triathlons (swim, bike, run) ranging from Sprint distance to double Ironman(that's 2 Ironman's back to back!), and numerous road and trail running races ranging in distance from 5K to 205 miles (Tahoe 200).
Some of Matt's more notable highlights are qualifying for and running in the 2017 Boston Marathon and placing 3rd Overall in an Ultra Distance Triathlon (281.2miles). In 2018 he was a Top 10 finisher in three separate 100 mile distance trail events, with a 19hr PR. Matt believes in taking a wholistic approach to training for sport or toward any endeavor in life (mental, emotional, physical), with an emphasis on evidence-based exercise, health and wellness practices.
Since his first time coaching High School athletes in 2002 Matt has worked with a wide range of athletes and ability levels, including Military personnel and First Responders seeking help with job specific physical challenges. Outside of the gym he enjoys relaxing with his wife and dog, hiking, reading, trail running, yoga, pilates, “natural” movement, and catching up with friends and family.
