Competing in a bodybuilding competition is not easy. Especially on your body. At age 23, Scott started experiencing back and hip pain. For years, he sought help from a physical therapist, massage therapist, chiropractors, even applied the stretching and strengthening techniques he was taught years ago in college. Nothing helped with his chronic pain. That’s when Scott went to Google and found Muscle Activation Technique. MAT taught personal trainers how to use isometrics to correct muscular imbalances. Focusing on very specific muscles that are weak and causing other muscles to fail at doing their job.
A World Without Chronic Pain

In 2015, he became a Certified MAT Specialist and already helped many clients become pain-free with treatment from MAT. Take a look at the client’s reviews!
