We are happy to welcome another personal trainer to our Minnesota Top Team family in Eagan, MN. Be sure to say hello and introduce yourself to Matt when you see him around the gym and read below to find out more about him.
Hello. My name is Matt Brekke and I am a newly certified ISSA Personal Fitness Trainer. I have always been in athletics and started playing college baseball, before deciding against school as I was not committed to learning at the time. It wasn’t until last year, that I realized what I really want to do. TRAIN!!
I had hit a peak weight of 230 lbs and decided I'd had enough. I started HIIT Cardio training and eating better, and dropped to 200 lbs. I realized this is what I love, and I would love to help people feel better and look better, and help teach a healthier lifestyle.
On top of training, I still am actively competitive in baseball and basketball. I have been selected to and been the starting pitcher in the TCMABL All-Star game 3 consecutive years, and am aiming for my 4th. I have also led the league in wins and ERA in 2 of the last 3 seasons.
I live my life by the 3 F’s. Family, Friends, and Fitness. I am married to Megan Brekke, who I met at college at Winona State University, and we have been married now for 5 years. We have two lovely children, Kylee (3) and Gavin (1.5). These three people mean the world to me. Although hectic, I can’t imagine life without them!
I grew up in the small town of Lewiston, MN. My father, Thomas Brekke, passed away of cancer 7 years ago. To this day, I still can’t believe he is gone. My mother, Sherri, still resides in Lewiston and is also into fitness. I could not have asked for better parents growing up, and I had everything I needed and more. She has recently re-married to Bill Speltz, and I am glad to see her happy again! I do not have any siblings, and I always say its because my mom perfected it the first time! She and others beg to differ.
I was introduced to Minnesota Top Team by Boxing Coach John Schimon, who was my high school football coach. I fell in love with the gym immediately and said “I need to be a part of this place”. Thankfully Jeremy and Jennie took me in. I am excited to be part of the team, and look forward to helping others achieve their fitness goals.
