Jacob Matthews
Director of Fitness and Sports Performance

My career in the fitness industry started over ten years ago when I was injured playing high
school baseball, I had to focus on getting stronger and faster in order to return to my sport.
This clearly demonstrated how important a training routine was in order to compete at a
higher level. So my passion for fitness and training began. I have worked as a master trainer
for a national fitness club and have been successful with all shapes, sizes, and body types
reach their goal. To further my professional career I worked with UCLA athletic performance. I
had the opportunity to train some of the number one teams and athletes in the country such
as volleyball, water polo, soccer, rugby and many more. I love to apply appropriate science
and proven program design as the cornerstone of my training programs.

such as Coordination, Balance, Posture, Flexibility, Mobility, and proper mechanics. I have

body to move with proper mechanics and apply it to your daily activities. Eliminate aches and
pains due to poor posture and prevent injuries. Perform better whether you want to increase
