About the instructor:

Matt is the Head Coach for the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, which recently returned from the Beijing Winter Olympics.

The team hadn't won a medal at the Olympics since 1976. The team picked up another two medals at the Beijing 2022 Olympics, when Jessie captured a bronze and a silver.

While coaching cross country ski racers is about maximizing fitness, Matt attributes his team's focus on positive group dynamics as a key to its success. This method can be applied to any person in any field. Matt is a graduate of Middlebury College, where he competed as a racer himself, and currently lives in Burke, Vermont.
