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 3.7 GPA while attending Ball State University for his Bachelors in Exercise Science and Masters in Biomechanics.
