Taylor came to Wenning Strength in April 2020 as a client with the Online Coaching Team. Since then, he has gotten the strongest and healthiest he’s been through great coaching and advice on how to lead a healthy lifestyle. He has done all this while working 40+ hour weeks as Executive Vice President for his family’s grocery stores. “People always ask me how I am able to train after working all day. The answer is in having the right plan that fits you.”
After 2.5+ years of working with and learning from Matt, Taylor is here to help those just getting into fitness and those who are trying to figure out how to train while also working full-time.
“For beginners, it can be difficult to know where to start. There’s so much information out there that can be hard to understand. My time with Wenning Strength has taught me it doesn’t have to be complicated. I have been training for 6+ years and I am still learning and developing every day.”
“I consider myself to be a strength enthusiast. I’m doing everything I can to be strong and healthy but I also know I’m not going to be breaking any world records. Being able to balance work, life, and training is something I strive for and through my experiences I can help others like me achieve those goals.”
Taylor says, “The grocery business is what I do for work, but fitness and training is my passion. It can benefit everybody, even just training for one day per week. Find what motivates you and it will benefit you in so many ways.”
Matt Wenning is a 3 time world champion powerlifter. He has directed over 6000 troops in strength, conditioning, and wellness for the U.S. Army including Infantry and Ranger Divisions. He holds a Masters Degree in Biomechanics and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science from Ball State University.
Matt grew up in Indiana, raised by a hard working, middle class family. His mother was a nurse, and his father was a Marine and truck driver. When he was six years old, Matt was hit by a car going 50 mph, which took a toll on his physical development. After undergoing 12 months of full leg casts and 12 months in a boot, his legs were underdeveloped.
Four years later, Matt discovered lifting. It allowed him to see he was capable of anything, despite what he had gone through during recovery from his injuries. Then, when Matt was 13, his father passed away due to cancer; a result of complications from agent orange. That's when he started lifting in competitions.
In the beginning, lifting was just a stepping stone to the goal of football. But it became a much larger pathway in his life. Lifting inspired Matt to attain higher education and become a strength coach. He excelled with a 3.9 GPA.
He has been an adviser for the NFL, an international speaker for the NSCA, as well as a contractor for border patrol, airborne divisions, and the pentagon.
