"Matt has impacted my life far more than I ever anticipated. I was not an avid gym-goer before training with Matt but he opened my eyes to strength training. It’s something I truly enjoy, to the point that I’ve competed in 8 powerlifting competitions, but it extends far beyond the physical benefits. Strength training has enabled me to feel empowered and I see this extend into my life outside the gym. The confidence a woman has from feeling mentally and physically strong is invaluable." - Theresa Egerer
"Some people think of Matt Kovacs as a trainer, as a coach, and as a coworker. Yes, he's all those things, but he's a motivator, he's a game changer, he's a lifestyle maker. He knows what it takes to be a champion. He knows what it takes to be a competitor. He knows what it takes to be the best. Matt Kovacs made me the trainer, the champion, and the person I am today. I wouldn't be the trainer I am today without him. Thank you Matt. You are not only a coworker or a teammate, but you are a friend and a brother." - Jesse Jeffers
"Matt Kovacs is not only a trainer but a teacher, coach and an extremely valuable asset to the fitness environment where he works. I have had the pleasure to work and train with Matt since January 2011. Matt's enthusiastic approach to training shows in the commitment he gets from his clients. He is very skilled at designing personalized programs and the results his clients achieve is remarkable. Matt has been the leader in our gym with encouraging women to gain strength. Matt, through his own knowledge of lifting and hours upon hours of researching what is happening in the world of powerlifting, has literally "lifted" the self esteem of dozens of women who didn't think they could achieve the strength goals they desired. Matt, through his precise and personalized programs, literally gives his clients the look they strive to achieve and the added bonus of strength. Matt has been my best source of information since i began training. I am honored to have the privledge to work, train, be coached and have access to "Google" Matt regularly. I am looking forward to seeing what cutting edge training techniques he will bring to our training team in the future." - Joya Shaw
"Matt Kovacs is a great trainer, coach and friend. I wouldn't have won my first powerlifting meet without his knowledge or his active coaching in the gym and at the meet. Matt is a very active coach and takes great pride in what he does and all of his clients. I'm so glad to have had the pleasure of meeting and befriending him. Love you Matt!" - Ray Kwok
"I've been involved in athletics my entire life and always enjoyed spending time in the gym but never pushed myself to that next level. Then one day Matt invited me to join his powerlifting team and train for their next competition. I was hesitant at first as I have never competed or even trained for a powerlifting competition before. That's when I turned to Matt. He was always eager and willing to share any knowledge of training he had and answer all of my questions. He provided me with workout programs with names like Westside Barbell and Sheiko but more importantly Matt provided me with the motivation to keep pushing my self everyday. He had confidence in me and always believed I could do something even when I thought I couldn't. After a few months of training I finally reached my goal of squatting 400 pounds at competition. Without Matt's guidance and support I would have never imagined that was even a possibility." - Steve Smith
"Matt has a gift for explaining complicated concepts in a way that anyone can understand " - Anthony Perna
"Matt is by far one of the most committed coaches I’ve ever worked with. He is constantly searching for new techniques and movements to better his clients and teammates training programs. He is able to breakdown the movements of the big lifts and show what muscles are activating and when and how to increase the output and strength of those individual muscles. Matt is beyond capable of relating those motions to every day life and explain why they are necessary to learn and build." - Bryan Wehman
"A friend is someone who will see you and ask how you doing, then wait for an answer. Matt is a person who will push you to your limit because he knows you are capable of doing it and better. He's confident about the things that he does and the things he has accomplish so far. Matt is one of the main reasons why I became interesting in powerlifting. I saw his training techniques and how strong he got which made me want to get involved in powerlifting." - Keron Wilson
