Matthew Van Norman

Future CHEK Practitioner

My journey through life has been one of transformation and service. As a former firefighter, I was shown a different side to life. The intensity of the job fueled my passion for physical awareness and wellness. Due to unfortunate injuries, life pushed me to explore new avenues. Transitioning from a career of extinguishing fires to igniting personal transformations, I found my calling as a personal trainer, holistic lifestyle coach, and massage therapist.

My experiences in the fire service taught me the importance of strength, ownership, and accountability, values I now impart to my clients. Through rigorous and individualized training programs, I help individuals discover their inner power and achieve fitness milestones they never thought possible. But my journey didn’t stop there. Intrigued by the healing potential of touch and corrective exercise, I delved into the art of massage therapy and holistic lifestyle coaching, through the CHEK Institute, to further aid in the recovery and well-being of others.

As an ex-firefighter turned wellness professional, I bring a unique perspective to my practice. I understand the physical and mental challenges that life can throw our way, and I use that insight to guide my clients towards healthier, happier lives.

Michelle loves to challenge her mind and body by participating in Spartan races, the Crossfit Open, hiking on the weekends, yoga, lazy beach days, and keeping up with her four children.
