Matt’s Fitness Journey

Matt traces his fitness journey back to when he was 13 years old and his mom enrolled him in a gym for disciplinary reasons.

After spending several years in Mexico as a wrestler, he decided to transition into personal training and nutrition.

The Importance of Fitness for Sedentary Lifestyles

Matt and George discuss the detrimental effects of a sedentary lifestyle, which is common among office workers. Matt explains that sitting for long periods can lead to tight hamstrings, tight neck muscles, poor posture, and joint issues. He emphasizes the importance of incorporating movement into daily routines.

Tips for Incorporating Movement

Matt suggests setting an alarm every hour as a reminder to stand up and move, even while working. He also recommends taking the long way to the bathroom or adding short walks after meals. By increasing overall movement throughout the day, individuals can improve their joint health and overall well-being.

The Mental and Productivity Benefits of Exercise

Matt and George discuss how exercise not only improves physical health but also has positive effects on mental health and productivity. Matt shares his personal experience of feeling better on days when he exercises compared to days when he doesn’t. He encourages individuals to focus on how they feel rather than solely relying on metrics or technology.

The Individual Approach to Strength Training

Matt stresses the importance of strength training for overall health and longevity. He advises individuals to seek guidance when starting strength training and to tailor their routines according to their individual needs and goals. Matt also recommends incorporating daily walks and finding an additional form of exercise that elevates the heart rate once a week.

Creating Habits and Setting Realistic Goals

To make fitness a part of daily life, Matt suggests creating habits and setting realistic goals. He recommends gradually increasing steps or exercise intensity rather than overwhelming oneself with drastic changes. Matt also emphasizes the importance of listening to one’s body and adjusting routines accordingly.


In conclusion, Matt Derosa highlights the significance of strength training and movement for individuals with sedentary lifestyles. By incorporating daily walks, strength training sessions, and regular movement, individuals can improve their overall health and well-being. Matt’s individualized approach and focus on long-term results provide valuable insights for those looking to prioritize fitness in their lives.
