Sam Matthews led me to my first victory at the CrossFit Games! His quality of coaching and technique in various fitness domains provided more than a good foundation for improvement. Qualities that Sam exhibited while coaching me:
at Every Level.
After sustaining several injuries and not recovering as quickly as I had hoped, I chatted with Sam Mathews about personal training. Having had worked with trainers in the past, I was ready to start LIFTING; Sam had other plans. He focused on flexibility and mobility. He patiently had me work on form and balance. I saw results quickly- my injuries were being addressed and I was progressing in my program. I feel the best I have in over 18 months and I am lifting again. We continue to work on flexibility, mobility and balance -and now, we set significant and realistic goals with my endurance and weight training.
