By Fran B. "I've been a client of Matt's for almost three years. When I
first started working out with him, I thought I was in relatively good
shape. I had always been a runner and figured my few runs a week kept me
in optimal form. After working out with Matt, I realized that being in
great shape was about working your entire body, not just certain areas.
I've specifically noticed that my core is much stronger and my posture
better. My shoulders and arms are much more sculpted than before and I
frequently get compliments on them. Our workouts are challenging, but
never boring - we do a variety of different activities, ranging from
boxing to planks to strength training. Matt is also extremely
professional and fun to be around. I highly recommend him as fitness
By Michael B. "Matt of Asylum Fitness is one of the best trainers I have ever worked
out with. Whatever my personal goals were at that time, he was able to
design a program that showed results. If motivation is your weakness
when it comes to working out, Matty D has that motivation and then some
to keep you going. 100% recommend Asylum Fitness and Matty D!"
By Chris D. "Matt is the best trainer around! He will work you hard and leave you
with that rewarding sore feeling the next few days. I was always in
pretty good shape but he has taken me to another level and I have truly
noticed a body transformation. Get started with him ASAP, best advice I
By David L. "I've trained with Matt on multiple occasions. His workout programming is
dynamic to say the least. It takes fitness to a whole new level. If
you are looking to break away from the conventional gym routine then
Asylum fitness is for you. I've been training for over 20 years and every
time I train with Matt I feel like a first timer. Super challenging with
By Maria G. "I've been training with Matt for about a year, and I love it. Our
workouts are always challenging and tough, but at the same time
entertaining and enjoyable. I've been able to shed a few pounds and get
rid of fat around my belly (my most problematic area). Matt also gave me
excellent suggestions about my diet and nutrition (which I try to
follow most of the time). I highly recommend him and Asylum Fitness as
your workout guru!
By Brian E. " I wanted to send you a quick note of thanks from Western Canada for your 1 month Tough Mudder training plan from Men's Fitness. I followed the video instructions explicitly and absolutely crushed it at Tough Mudder Whistler in British Columbia on Saturday. Your workouts were significantly harder from a lactic acid and anaerobic standpoint than anything I faced on the course so not only was I in great shape and well prepared but I also never felt as if the course was beyond my training. I completed Funky Monkey without falling and made it up Everest in one run! At the conclusion of the course, I still felt as if I could have continued, which in my mind is the essence of great training.
Thanks again for the plan, I will continue to add the workouts into my regular rotation and look forward to the next challenge."
