Matthew Liao, BKin, DOMP, CSCS
I'm a Strength & Conditioning Coach, Registered Kinesiologist, and Manual Osteopathic Practitioner based out of Burnaby, BC.
I have spent the past 9 years honing my skills as a Strength & Conditioning Coach by working with athletes from the grassroots level to high performance; and as a Kinesiologist & Manual Osteopathic Practitioner by working with individuals who experience acute and chronic pains.
Personally, I did not grow up around sports. I was overweight and it affected me physically and mentally. In 2012, I began digging myself out of the hole by pursuing this path on fitness and self-reinvention. I lost over 70 lbs and found inspiration to participate in various sports. This led me into pursuing a competitive powerlifting career, which was short-lived as injuries occurred. My focus is now turned towards unlocking my athletic potential in volleyball.
A lifetime of learning from mentors and other professionals has shaped me into the coach that I am today. One of my training philosophies is to build a good human being first, and athlete second. I also believe that every individual has athletic potential in them. I plan to bring that out of each individual, regardless of their age or experience. Ultimately, my goal is help individuals win at life through optimizing physical health.
If any of the above resonates with you, it would be my pleasure to work together.

What Others Are Saying
Hiring Matt to be my personal trainer was one of the best investments I ever made. Matt is a skilled, knowledgeable and gentle guide who helped me reach my personal fitness goals of increased, overall strength and conditioning. With his warm smile and soft voice, he got my 50-something-year-old body in shape such that I feel confident learning a new sport and joining a team - thank you Matt.
Matt's is simply incredible. I've been suffering from 10 years of chronic back pain and I've seen many therapists for it. No one was really able to help me until I met Matt. Not only was he able to immediately address my issues, he takes his time to explain his thought process. Since then, my flareups have been almost non-existent.
