My name is Matt Bucur and I'm the CEO and lead trainer at MDRN Athlete. With over 15 years experience in the fitness industry, extensive studies in exercise science and a doctorate degree in pharmacy, you will not find a more qualified expert to help you achieve your goals. Fitness has been my lifelong passion since my early childhood. As a teenager I was introduced to weightlifting and the rest is history. My love for the gym, proper nutrition and anything fitness has only grown and solidified with age. This company has been a dream since I first started and with the help of my best friend and COO, we were finally able to bring it to fruition and help others achieve success in fitness and performance.
When you hire me as your personal fitness coach, rest assured you are hiring the absolute best. Whether you're looking to achieve peak competition shape, add 50lbs to your bench or shed those last few pounds for a special event, I will help you reach your goals. There is no goal too big or too small. All I ask of my clients is for 100% commitment and the will to work harder than you ever have. I am here to give you the tools you need and be by your side each step of the way, but it's up to you to make it happen. For this reason, I take on a very limited amount of clients in order to deliver 100% to every individual.
