I began working with Matt Jordan when I was at the highest level in the sport of cycling. I was new to speed skating and did not like to lift weights. Matt taught me that I had so much more to learn; so many ways to improve on both my strength and power, and also my mental approach to training. He has shown me over the past six years what it means to be truly professional as an athlete. By working with Matt, my performance has improved not only in the weight room, but also on the ice, where it really counts.
