Ballistic Sports Performance


Matz has been a professional trainer since 2001, and has owned and operated Ballistic Sports Performance since 2003.  Matz grew up in Littleton and is a graduate of Heritage High school.  He attended Northeastern Junior College and played baseball.  While there he earned his EMT-B-IV while studying Emergency Medical Services.  After College Matz began his coaching career at his alma mater, Heritage High School, and coached there for 7 years.  During his tenure as a baseball and strength coach, he also began his career as a personal trainer.  During his training career he has had the privilege of working with some of America’s finest, as well as multitudes of professional and amateur athletes of all sports. 


His training philosophy is to develop the most functional body possible.  Growing up working in his father’s physical therapy clinics, as well as his continuing education, has helped to instill a higher understanding of biomechanics, anatomy, physiology, and movement patterns that he is able to implement into all of his training programs. 


Matz has been a dryland coach for Littleton Hockey for the past two seasons.  His first year as dryland coach, he worked with the Midget Major and Minor AA teams, which both programs experienced success.  Last year he and his staff of professional trainers worked with levels ranging from Major AA to Pee Wee AA.  All programs were very limited to injury and had successful seasons.


The staff of Ballistic Sports Performance is comprised of professional trainers and coaches that have dedicated their lives to coaching and training.  All members of the staff have worked for or with Matz for a minimum of 4 years and have the same desire to help the athletes that they serve to become the best that they can be.
