Matt Drilias Personal Training & Fun Seeker Fitness
Matt Drilias' Personal Training and Katie Hunt’s Fun Seeker Fitness opened a new personal training studio at 3473 N Booth ST. Matt and Katie spent several years in other gyms before creating their own. Matt and Katie offer a variety of in-person and online classes, workshops, and trainings.
“We are excited to be a part of the Riverwest community, and we love the personal training space we have created here. I got into this business because I enjoy teaching, coaching, and working with people, and I was frustrated by the fitness information we see in online clickbait and on the magazine stands. We want to provide simple, time-saving, effective exercise solutions.” - Matt
“I was the kid who avoided gym class at all costs, but in my 20s discovered how good I felt when I exercised, and I was hooked. I want to give my clients that experience. I believe fitness can be welcoming, accepting, and even -- SHOCKER -- FUN! We are here to help you makeover your mindset and muscles and live the life you desire -- engaged, empowered, and energized!” - Katie
