Goodbye Matt!

Making sure we were fed after the Epic Challenge!

Matt is leaving us to head to college at UCF! Matt has been around Tillman Physical Therapy & Sports Training since December of 2005! He started with us as a patient. He was a freshman in high school with a bit of attitude, but progressed quickly to become David’s right-hand man and assistant. When we affiliated with CrossFit, Inc. in 2007, Matt was one of the first to jump on board with the idea and concepts and loved it! Matt played football for Cedar Park High School and although he suffered an injury, he was there for his teammates every step of the way.

Matt is an excellent athlete. Due to his injury, Matt double-unders on one leg and rows instead of runs. He is an inspiration to those who don’t think they can – because he does it – injuries not withstanding. He is on our leader board in several places. He just went up 40lbs on his CrossFit Total with 915, a 5’35” Fran, 4’34” Grace, 8’20” Jackie and our first to master 30 Muscle-ups for time!

Matt is our employee, a terrific CrossFit Level 1 and Youth Speed & Agility Coach and above all else – a great friend. We will miss you, but know you are going to kick butt in College! Thanks for everything!

    Thanks for all your hard work & for remembering to take my trash out 🙂 Also thanks for playing with Isabella & keeping her out of too much trouble around the gym floor.
