Matt Springer


Matt is not your lifelong athlete turned fitness coach. He grew up playing WWF and riding anything with wheels. In high school he wrestled and played football but due to shoulder injuries, Matt did not become a college athlete. Instead he found himself inside the gym and into performance based training. Throughout his undergraduate and graduate education he assisted in coaching a multitude of NCAA Division 1 teams in their strength and conditioning training.

Matt’s drive for exploration and deeper understanding of human movement naturally attracted him to Big Dawgs beliefs around fitness testing and prescription. Upon graduating, Matt got married, and traveled the world with his wife Kailee to visit his remote clients. For nine months, they dove into new cultures and learning new things, always raising the bar on Team Springer!

Today Matt finds himself practicing jiu jitsu and working towards peak cognition daily as well as challenging those around him to do the same.

    Oh my man Matt. I could write a book about this guy. 

    I started with Matt almost 3 years ago after attending an Opex Camp. It was the best decision for me as an athlete and a coach. 

    One of the best things is the customization to me. I have had several injuries during our time and we just keep plugging away with other areas to work while I recovery. We started with shoulders, hip issues, wrist issues, and 2 outpatient surgeries and we never skipped a beat. Matt was able to program around all the issues and had me coming back strong. I have never felt better over the last 3 years all while improving my fitness and hitting PRs along the way. Two, getting you ready for anything you want to accomplish. Matt has programmed me for Running Races, Spartan Races, CrossFit Comp’s, The Open and the soon to be the bike part of a Tri. No matter the task Matt can help you get there. Three, the knowledge I have learned as a coach working with Matt as been fantastic. He is always answering my questions as to why we are doing something and how could I program x for a client. 

    Lastly, Matt is a friend. We have built a relationship I feel outside of just fitness. I cannot thank Matt enough for getting me back on the right track. Matt seems to know exactly when I need to rest or push and the program is dialed in to reflect.

    Not only has Matt helped me progress in terms of competing in Crossfit but the biggest help was figuring out what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I was not sure what to do after I got my bachelors degree. After talking to Matt for a few days about post graduate options, he helped me understand what I wanted to do for a  career. I am now finishing up chiropractic school and will be opening my own practice in 18 months. I am so grateful that Matt was able to guide me to figure out what I really wanted out of life.
