“Life will knock you down, but if you fall, try to land on your back, because if you can look up, you can get up.”


ONE of my guilty pleasures:

Peanut butter. My favorite dessert is melting peanut butter with honey and dipping fruit in it.

ONE thing you may not know about me:

I used to be 40lbs heavier than I am now...and it wasn’t muscle mass.

Matt is a Calgary boy who grew up playing every sport his parents would let him, from hockey and football to skiing and golf, sports and fitness has always been his passion.

After his competitive sporting days ended, he took to multiple fitness pursuits including long distance running and weight lifting. Looking to change up his workouts, he decided to try spin at One Cycle and discovered it be a very humbling experience that left him breathless and hooked after that first class. “I never had so much fun during a cardio workout and was quickly seeing the results of it!”

When he’s on the podium, he loves to see people walk into class and set their lives aside to give it their all for 50 minutes. “You never know the story of the person sitting next to you. Seeing other people’s drive and passion keeps me motivated week after week.”

When Matt is not on the bike, he is a designated accountant working as a financial analyst in the energy industry or out in his favourite place, the mountains, as much as possible. “Hiking, trail running, skiing or out on Lake Windermere are my places to be. Or if I’m in town, I’m at brunch, my favorite meal of the day.”

A workout with Matt will push you past your boundaries with every pedal stroke with some classic hip hop tunes and a few jogging tap backs to get your lost in the beat.
