Matt graduated from the University of Western Ontario with an Honours Specialization in Kinesiology. While there he played football for five years earning the All-Canadian Academic Award and Yates Cup MVP. He was then drafted to the CFL by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats where he played slotback, and got to play with future hall of famers, Chad Owens and Andy Fantuz. In the off season he managed a gym in Hamilton and trained many high-level athletes. His passion for athletics, health and mobility led him back to Western where he is now pursuing a graduate degree in Physiotherapy.
As a Kinesiologist he has been volunteering at The Fowler Kennedy Clinic helping injured athletes to gain their strength and mobility back. Matt’s unique combination of high level athletics, training and rehabilitation experience make him an excellent asset to the team here at West London CrossFit.
