Matt Collins...

is our Exercise Movement Specialist. He's here to take your ACTIVE and HEALTHY lifestyle to a whole new level!

Matt graduated from the University of Louisville with a Bachelor of Exercise Physiology.  He has since used that knowledge and education to help spread life through health and wellness to everyone he meets.  Matt said once he got started in the health and wellness industry he had no idea how much passion he was going to have helping people get their lives back by making small simple nutritional changes and holding them accountable to exercise.  Matt realizes for most people all they need is a little encouragement and accountability, and he says if he can be those two things for somebody else then he has fulfilled his purpose!

Matt most recently moved onto a 10.5 acre farm with his wife Shelbi, son Sheppard, and baby to be.  They are entertained everyday by sheep, chickens, barn kitties, a German Shepherd named Leon, and whatever else the farm life throws at them.
