MAT RX | MS | Exercise Specialist

With almost 20 years of professional exercise experience under his belt, Brandon has a passion for helping people achieve their goals.  He earned his bachelor’s degree from Western Kentucky University in Exercise Science while competing as a member of the NCAA Division I baseball team.  Brandon also holds a Master’s of Science degree from Mississippi State University. While at Mississippi State he worked in the Strength and Conditioning program for the SEC-renowned Bulldog baseball and football teams under then head Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Jim Nowell.

After years of working almost exclusively with collegiate and professional athletes, Brandon recognized the greater challenge that non-athletes faced. Regular people don’t heal the way athletes do and, as a result, the greatest difficulty becomes how to determine a starting point for exercise after injury. Hungry for an answer, Brandon discovered Greg Roskopf’s Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT). MAT is the tool that has now allowed Brandon to determine that starting point for his diverse clientele. Brandon is 1of 60 MATRx practitioners in the world; MATRx being the highest level of practitioner that MAT certifies.  Utilizing MATRx skills Brandon bridges the gap between therapy and exercise, and successfully defines a starting point of specific and appropriate exercise for each his clients and their unique needs.
