I have been to other Personal Trainer's before. I have gone to enough to get a general idea of what to expect. Before meeting Matt, and visiting Underground Fitness I was completely expecting the "car salesman" pitch. I expected to walk into the gym during my first free session and workout for maybe 35-40 minutes then be taken to a big old desk and sold a pile of packages I could not afford. My expectations were shattered, and Underground Fitness broke the Personal Training stereotype for many reasons. First, I explained to Matt my personal goals (shed the fat, tone, and look good for my wedding that was 6 weeks away). Matt listened and was excited to take on the challenge. Second, Underground Fitness offers two free sessions which includes a nutrition plan breakdown. And can we talk about the nutrition plan? Without revealing their secrets it is COMPLETELY attainable and you do not have to buy special meals or starve yourself. Third, Matt Hoodie, the owner, is a walking success story. Matt has been where most of us have been and currently are. He lost a mountain of weight and has shaped his body to what most of us believe to be ideal. His education in Dietetics and Exercise Science offers much more than meets to eye because he can explain his motives behind certain things and teach us what we are doing wrong. Overall, I will never go anywhere else for my personal training needs. I still have a long road ahead of me, however for the first time ever after meeting a trainer I felt like my goals were achievable in within reasonable reach.Apr 12, 2017Verified
I work with Matt Hoodie at Underground Fitness and I recommend him heartily! In just a month, we have made great progress turning a 12 year, 377-pound couch potato into something I can be proud of. Matt has a 4-year degree as a dietitian. With that knowledge and experience he is guiding changes in my eating that are realistic and effective. I am 65 years-old and at workout time, Matt is mindful of my obese history and keeps a close watch on how I am handling the routines. Matt is helping me change the rest of my life for the better!Mar 1, 2017Verified
- How did you get started doing this type of work?We both got into our line of work for different reasons. I began my journey after losing 150 pounds during my high school and college years. Becky has always loved being active and helping others
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Very similar to the above, choose a trainer you connect with!! We would never claim that we are the best trainers for each client, everyone is different. The most important thing a client can do is hire someone they feel is truly invested in THEM.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?Our wish is that customers realized that while there are a lot of trainers out there it is definitely worth investing in one that you feel a connection with from day one. It's worth the extra $10 or $20 per session if that person is truly going give you everything they have and help you succeed.
