Greg Roskopf believes muscle weakness causes muscle tightness.
Greg Roskopf has devoted his career to the study of the “cause and effect” of the muscular system and how it relates to pain. Greg has over two decades of experience applying MAT® to his clients and developing students into competent and respected practitioners.
As a professional sports consultant, the author of Jumpstart Into MAT, and the founder of Muscle Activation Techniques he not only developed the MAT Education Continuum but also partnered with Broadview College to create a curriculum for this technique that has been taught to students all across the globe.
Greg has worked as a athletic consultant for various professional sports teams including:
Greg started his career in California as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Fresno State University from 1985-1988. He received his Master's Degree in Physical Education with an Emphasis in Exercise Science from Fresno State University. Greg left his full time role as a strength coach in 1988 to develop a business in personal training and sports performance, yet continued to work with Fresno State’s medical staff, until he was hired to work full time with the Denver Broncos in 1997.
The development of Muscle Activation Techniques® began in earnest while Greg was working with performance athletes at Fresno State. Greg began questioning why some athletes would break down and get injured, while others could work through fatigue and achieve optimal levels of performance. Knowing that there had to be a fundamental explanation, Greg took his exploration efforts to a new level.
Greg has been featured on various national major media publications & channels such as:
