His passion to help clients further optimize their muscle function, improve mobility and increase overall strength, led him to pursue a certification in Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT).

He treats his clients with compassion, professionalism, and respect.
Brad and his wife have two children. When he‘s not working with clients or working out himself, he enjoys spending time coaching his son‘s baseball and football teams, attending his basketball games, and watching his daughter compete in volleyball.
“Over the last couple years, I have struggled with hip and back problems. I tried many different therapies without any luck. It wasn‘t until I started to work with MAT Specialist, Brad Boelkens that I started to feel and function better. If it weren‘t for MAT, I don‘t think I would have recovered the way I have.”

It’s a program I am committed to for the rest of my life based on the results that I continue to feel every day of my life.

“I went through traditional physical therapy following hip replacement surgery. I elected to take a series of MAT sessions with Brad Boelkens after I completed the physical therapy. The MAT process identified and fixed subtle weaknesses in the muscles surrounding my new hip. I am very pleased with the outcome.”
