Matthew Spear

Austin, TX 78703

I am a personal trainer because I want to make an impact in people's lives. Helping a client lose weight, get into shape, eat better, become stronger, and become pain free is perks of my job. I love it! When those things happen, there is always a transformation. There is big physical transformation, but there is always a bigger mental and spiritual transformation. I have a secret to tell you! Losing weight won't make you happy! Having a six-pack won't bring you joy! Dumbfounding I know. Getting in shape is the same as anything else. Money won't bring joy, neither will fame, a nice car, or a giant mansion! It may provide a temporary happiness, but real joy comes from within. It's true!! I have seen too many people lose weight and get in shape, and find themselves just as unhappy as they were before. They aren't addressing the root of the problem. There is nothing cooler than seeing a client gain self-confidence, believe in themselves, have faith in themselves and others, and ultimately find that joy that has been missing. That is why I train! You're not just a client, your a friend. You are someone I want to see achieve the things you didn't believe you could. I am passionate about what I do, and I am passionate about helping those in desiring to change their lives.

    I worked out with Matt for over a year in both group and individual training sessions. He mixes up his workouts, corrects my form, and is able to modify exercises for injuries. He is very motivating and positive. He takes interest in his clients and knows what exercises to do to push them personally. I was the strongest I have ever been when he was my trainer. I wish he didn't move to Texas.

    I started working with Matt in regards to some pain in my shoulders and neck. It was a different approach to the chiropractic and massage therapies that I had tried, but was able to give me results that I had yet to experience. Matt has a great demeanor and is very encouraging and supportive.

    I began working with Matt after seeing many doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists. Surgery was the best option they could give me for the herniated disks in my neck, causing me daily pain for over a year. After a detailed assessment, Matt was able to identify the methods needed to correct my posture and build the strength necessary to relieve the pressure on my vertebrae. After 6 months of Matt's creative workouts and nutritional suggestions (gluten-free to reduce inflammation), I woke up one day pain free, and I have been ever since. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about corrective fitness.

    I first met Matt almost 2 years ago and began personal training with him shortly after. I had an ongoing Hamstring injury and I had been to physio for 3 months prior to meeting Matt and was not seeing any improvement. Matt then said he would be able to work with me and relieve the pain I was feeling. My initial thought, was what do I have to lose? I was training with Matt 3 days a week and getting other workouts in in between. In a matter of a couple weeks, I was working out pain free! I could not believe it! I was building strength week by week and loving every minute of my workouts with Matt! Matt has a wealth of experience in fitness and injury prevention and truly cares about giving his clients the best possible workout to suit each client’s needs. Thanks Matt for all the great workouts! Kay

    When I first visited Matt for personal training I was skeptical since he did not use Dumbbells and barbells. Was I wrong! The workouts were intense and was the best experience I had with a personal trainer since my strength, flexibility, and balance greatly improved. Did I see results? Yes! I could not believe I could get in that much shape at my age.
