Matt Ferrara

Matt started training the summer he graduated from high school, with the sole intention of gaining muscle like most guys his age. Ever since he's been hooked, and has spent the past 6 years learning everything he can related to human performance through both research and real world experience.

His passion for training brought on a passion for sharing this knowledge and experience. He started training a friend in his basement soon after graduating from high school. He had scoliosis, so the standard rules of lifting didn’t apply to him. They had to get creative in both getting him stronger, as well as improving his posture and keeping him safe. He focused his learning on improving movement quality and injury prevention, while obtaining his associates in environmental science.

From there he attended Bridgewater State University and pursued his passion for human performance by obtaining his bachelors degree in Physical Education with a concentration in Exercise Science. It was during this time that his eyes were opened to many new philosophies and ideas. He found his true passion in the sport of weightlifting and began training competitively with a local team. The coaches of that team soon became his good friends, and over the following months he helped them launch a start up company that provided online training, nutrition coaching, and programs improving movement quality. During his time at Bridgewater State, he also interned for Bryant University Strength and Conditioning. After graduating from Bridgewater, he began to work as a personal trainer in a commercial gym before finding Perfect Postures.
