Matt is a 2013 graduate from the University of Pennsylvania. He joined the HealthStyles staff full time in the fall of 2013 after completing an internship in the Cardiac Rehabilitation program earlier that spring. During his time at HealthStyles, Matt has played a role in Cardiac Rehabilitation, Physician Exercise Program (PEP), and personal training.
Matt enjoys working at a medically based fitness facility because of the vast contrast in clientele that HealthStyles has. This includes anyone from an aging heart patient that has recently had surgery to gifted high school athletes looking to train for their upcoming season. He takes pleasure in hearing peoples stories and what they are looking to get out of participating in exercise (GOALS). Matt feels that making a personal connection with his clients is the key to creating great habits and gives them the best chance in reaching their goals.
“Just remember to never doubt yourself. We are all capable of amazing things.”

Whether a client’s goal is to become stronger, change their body composition, or improve overall well-being; Mark has helped clients make changes to achieve those results. A tenet that he adheres to is that every person wanting to start exercising has some notion of what their capabilities are; his goal is to show every client that they usually judge themselves too harshly and that they are capable of much more than they think. Having worked with clients of all ages, Mark has found that he takes great joy in helping anyone middle aged and older improve their quality of life.
