" I have considered myself a serious athlete, competitor and hard worker for over eight years. In high school, I was an All-State basketball player and competed in the state cross country and track meets. I had opportunities to work with Matt during this time but did not make it a priority, figuring I could work out on my own. Not getting into Altius Performance and working out with Matt during high school is one of my biggest regrets as an athlete.   During my first two years of college, I was an All-Conference basketball player and competed in track.  I tore my ACL before my junior year.  After ACL reconstructive surgery I knew that I needed to change something about my training and working with Matt was the perfect next step. Through diligent, consistent, and sport-specific workouts, in four short months, I was not only able to strengthen my knee, but I was able to do things with my body that I couldn’t do even before my injury. I saw incredible strides in my life on and off the court in my time with Matt. I have truly been prepared for bringing my game to the next level both physically and mentally. 
Working out through this program has strengthened my work ethic, confidence and performance in ways that extend beyond the gym. Matt not only puts together specific workouts for each athlete but he teaches you how to be accountable during your own individual training programs." -Michael Gutierrez, Whitman Basketball, 2016 MAC Conference scoring Champion


"My name is Taylor Scalia and I play volleyball at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. In order to find your way onto the court, we must pass a series of 10 physical challenges during preseason. Last year as a freshman, I came in thinking I would be able to pass these challenges without much practice. The first day of preseason, we had to run five 300 yard sprints with short breaks in between. I ended up being the last person to cross the finish line, and was on the verge of being sick. I told myself I would NEVER be able to pass these, and I really lacked confidence going into the rest of preseason with 9 more challenges ahead. It took me several more attempts to pass, with a lot of help from my teammates. Some of the other strength and endurance tests included planks (30 seconds side plank each and 2 minute front plank continuously), push-ups (25, holding down for 1 second) , T-test (shuffling forward, back, and side to side) and many others. I made a promise with myself that I would come back my sophomore year prepared and ready to pass all challenges on the first attempt, in order to secure myself a starting spot on the court. Matt Yegge actually had reached out to me before, stating he wanted to work with me because of the potential he saw. He believed in me more than I believed in myself. As inspiring as that was, this summer I gave it a shot and trained with him three times a week, and it’s something I’ll never regret. He pushed me to be better, and helped me reach my absolute full potential. I shared the challenges with him, and he helped me prepare everyday in the weight room. Not only did he make me stronger, but he was able to focus in on key  techniques that were specific to volleyball. At our first preseason scrimmage this year, I quickly began getting compliments from teammates and coaches about how quick and agile I looked on the court. I passed all 10 challenges on the first attempt with flying colors and earned my spot! I am so so thankful for Matt’s help! Not only for helping me get stronger both mentally and physically, but for making it an extremely enjoyable experience along the way. I could not have asked for a better, more intelligent trainer. I am in the best physical shape I have ever been in and because of that, everything just seems to be easier. I highly recommend Matt if you are looking to improve yourself in many different aspects. You will not regret it!"  -Taylor Scalia, Wisconsin Eau Claire Volleyball 




"I have been working with Altius for over 3 years and it has truly changed my life inside and outside of the gym. Initially I started working to increase my vertical. Not only did I improve my vertical by 5+ inches, but my speed, general strength and nutrition also improved. Every session is fun while also being challenging.  Because of my extra work with Matt and the belief that Altius has instilled in me, my college offers increased dramatically."
-Katie Pyles, USA Beach VolleybalL setter


"From the beginning we were impressed by the professionalism, courtesy, and complete grasp of the science of maximizing sports performance. The workouts are sport-specific and intense, but most importantly, the results are undeniable.  Gavin's burst speed, lateral transitions and vertical explosiveness improved dramatically in only a few sessions, and still steadily improve with each session after.  As a result of the effort and coaching, Gavin finished on the podium for the 100M dash both his junior and senior years of high school and was awarded three D1 football scholarships.  Now, even as he is entering his Junior year at the Air Force Academy and with all the trainers and equipment he has available to him, Gavin sill plans to continue to work with Altius Sports Performance because he now fully understands the competitive advantage it provides him.  Any athlete wanting to maximize their God-given potential by improving his/her speed, agility, acceleration and overall athleticism should definitely consider Altius Sports Performance." -Chet Mchenry, father of AFA CB Gavin Mchenry. 


"There is no equal in the business when it comes to intelligent preparation for the NFL combine.  Altius has helped me understand my body and maximize my potential in a matter of 5 weeks. I have seen amazing strides in my power, explosiveness, top end speed and agility.  They have not only helped me get bigger, stronger and faster but have given me insight into what to expect from the NFL scouts. Altius is legit and training with them is the best investment you can make when it comes to your athletic aspirations."-Troy Vermillion, Professional Football Player


"My daughter has been training with Altius for the last 3 years.  Ally has greatly improved her strength, agility and speed through her sessions and they have also assisted Ally with several sports related injuries, helping her with amazingly quick recoveries. But most importantly, the encouragement provided to Ally has greatly increased her confidence and passion for excellence. Altius knows how to get the best out of everyone they train and they grow exponentially from the positive environment created."  -Gwen Clancy, mother of ALly Clancy, All-state VB setter


"I currently play football for the University of Arizona, and have trained with Matt since the 8th grade.  Matt obtains and teaches the knowledge of movement mechanics unlike any other training I have ever experienced.  Not only does he understand what is best, but he has made it so I also can go out and apply what he has taught me when I am working on my own.  Over the last year with Altius, every one of my stats has improved.  My 40 has dropped by 2 tenths of a second and my standing vertical is the highest on my team at 37.5", all the while increasing my strength and weight.  I would not be the athlete I am today without Altius Sports Performance."-Alex King, University of Arizona, LB


"Our son Jake had a goal to play college football. As a sophmore in highschool, he knew being from a small school in rural Colorado, put him at a disadvantage. Jake wanted to work harder, beyond the typical football practice and weight training programs offered at his school. In order to compete at the college, level we knew he would need speed, strength, and confidence. When Jake first met Matt he was 5'11, and weighed in at 140 pounds. During our first visit, Matt really got to know Jake; immediately identifying his strengths and weaknesses. They set goals and got to work, building an amazing friendship along the way. We found ourselves driving over 200 miles twice a week, soaking it all in and loving every minute of it. Jake's footwork, speed, vertical, strength, and confidence continued to improve. Each week we continued to see him chip away at his goals, setting new ones, and then exceeding those. Through long nights, long drives, tough workouts, mental toughnes, and humility, we are happy to say that Jake has accepted a scholarship to Western State Colorado University in Gunnison as a corner back, at 6'1" and weighing in at 175 pounds. As he now works on his college conditioning program, we feel he has a head start on what it takes to play at the next level. Matt's efforts and belief in Jake not only helped our son to accomplish his life long goal, but instilled a work ethic and confidence in Jake that will be lifelong."-Mandy Brown, mother of Jake Brown, Western State Football.
