More About Matt

FAMILY

Matthew has been married to his wife Eve for over 20 years and has moved a total of 18 times since they've been together. Their longest stints were in New York City, Los Angeles, CA, and now here in beautiful Jupiter, FL. They were blessed with two amazing children, their son Christian and daughter Emma.

Matt and Eve met in a New Jersey gym in 2000 working as personal trainers and both loved studying health and wellness.  Over the years, Matt and Eve struggled with a myriad of orthopedic and systemic issues and were not satisfied with the traditional approach to addressing their issues and found that the "healthy approach" they had been following had a lot of limitations.

Since then they have been obsessed with learning everything they can about fitness, health, wellness, and most of all cracking the code to vitality.

GROWING UP

Matthew was the fourth of five children, born to Louis and Kathleen LaBosco. He grew up in New Jersey and was essentially raised on different sporting fields and courts.

He was a three sport athlete, playing soccer, basketball, and baseball and was All-State in basketball and soccer in high school.

Unfortunately, due to a myriad of injuries he was unable to play competitively in college. It was these injuries that contributed to Matthew's determination to understanding exercise, injury, physical rehabilitation, and overall health and wellness.

THE JOURNEY

Growing up the son of a doctor and nurse practitioner, Matthew was surrounded by and benefited from close access to the medical model. He quickly saw the power of the traditional medical model and also its many limitations.

This fueled his passion to learn as much as he could from as many different health professionals and practitioners as he was able to - this was the main reason for all of the moves he and his wife made.  They were always seeking to learn from the best of the best and were willing to relocate to be as close to these mentors as possible.

Matt was less concerned with people's credentials and more focused on the results these practitioners were able to consistently get with their patients and clients. He also valued the professionals that had a sound thought process that were rooted in solid principles and not biased to their specific craft or modality.

TRAINING

While Matthew started his career as a personal trainer learning about fitness, he earned his four year Psychology Degree from Rutgers College in New Jersey. He had always found the study of people, the brain, and specifically neuroscience fascinating and figured no matter what he did, understanding how he and other individuals think and behave, would be useful.

He then went on to get certifications in a variety of Fitness related modalities, including

  • Corrective Movement Specialist & Performance Enhancement Specialist from National Academy of Sports Medicine
  • Strength & Conditioning Specialist from National Strength & Conditioning Association
  • Olympic Weightlifting Level I Certification from US Weightlifting

From here he realized that he needed to understand more about the soft tissues of the body (muscles, fascia, tendons, etc.) and how to more directly manipulate it. He then went on to complete the following:

  • A Licensed Massage Therapist from the American Institute of Alternative Medicine
  • Certifications in Active Release Technique for Spine, Lower Body, Upper Body, and Nerve Entrapments

And although these certifications were valuable, nothing was more impactful on Matthew's learning than his mentorships. Learning directly from some of the world's experts in Movement, Physical Rehabilitation and Nutrition were priceless. This included

  • 10 Year Apprenticeship with Lenny Parracino, currently a NBA Soft Tissue Therapist & Rehab Specialist
  • Fellow of Applied Functional Science from the Gray Institute
  • 5 Year Apprenticeship with head educator of The Metabolic Typing Institute and Nutritionist, Dodie Anderson

At this point, Matthew was serving hundreds of people at his Corrective Movement Therapy clinic in Pasadena, CA called the Vitality Center. He had people from all over the country coming to learn and apprentice with him.

And after these deep dives in movement, fitness, physical rehabilitation, soft tissue therapy, and nutrition, Matt discovered that there was still a piece missing - the mental and emotional part of the health and wellness.

This lead him to come full circle and dive back into psychology and personal development.

Matthew ended up dedicating 8 years of his life to learning and helping a mentor of his build a personal development organization. He moved his focus to primarily coaching and mentoring people in meditation, stress management, and life coaching. He led weekly classes, worked with people 1-1, and taught weekend seminars all over the country.

In 2021, Matthew decided to leave this organization because as the organization grew, he believed that their goal was no longer to empower individuals to stand on their own and thrive, but was to make them dependent on the organization - not something Matt was interested in being a part of.

He continued his pursuit of educating himself on empowering frameworks of  mental and emotional coaching and went on to become a

Matthew uses all of his experience, knowledge and education to support individuals with their physical, systemic, and mental well-being. He has recently published his first book, "Health to Vitality," and is now focused on his private practice working with people as a Corrective Movement Therapist at his office in Jupiter, FL, supporting people in his online POWER3D Courses and hosting his POWER3D Weekend Workshops.
