The Mathias Method Story
“I was less than a year away from graduating college with a Degree in Exercise Science…but I was unsure of what I wanted to do.”
The idea and goal of creating the Mathias Method began on December 25th, 2015 (Christmas Day). I was sitting at home thinking of what I wanted to do with my life. I had my Personal Training Certification, but after doing some training I found it did not fulfill me. I was less than a year away from graduating college with a Degree in Exercise Science, and a Minor in Business, but I was unsure of what I wanted to do. My Financial Aid that paid for College was racked up to nearly $30,000 at this point. I wanted to find a way to invest $2,000 I had saved up, and turn it into a way to pay my loan.
“I had been searching for answers as to what I wanted to do in life for a while…”
I had just finished reading the book “Rich Dad Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki, a few months before (which taught me to save the $2,000 while still going to college) in an effort to learn more about how to be smart with my money. I looked at a few things to invest in, but none felt right. I had been searching for answers as to what I wanted to do in life for a while, and all I could think of was “Change the World”.
“…if I’m going to invest in something it should be an investment in myself.”
That’s when I decided that if I’m going to invest in something it should be an investment in myself. I believe in myself more than anything else, so if it went anywhere, it should go towards helping me follow my dreams. At least then I knew I truly was in control of my future and what I could accomplish. I wanted, and still want to, change the world, but at the time I did not have a “how”.
“It was like an idea just dropped right in my lap and told me what I needed to do.”
How was I going to change the world that is changing on its own so rapidly? I had already accomplished a lot at this stage of my life, as I was soon to earn my 3rd Degree Black Belt in Martial Arts, after over 13 years of consecutive training. Still, I had no plan for how I was going to utilize my knowledge and experience. I began doubting myself and was not sure that I had the strength to change the world. I wanted to help others by sharing with them my knowledge of how to grow STRONGER, and make a difference in their lives! Then it hit me! It was like an idea just dropped right in my lap and told me what I needed to do. Suddenly, I knew what I wanted to do! What I was meant to do. I wanted to help others change their world in order to change the world. With that in mind, the plans for the Mathias Method were born! I quickly grabbed a notepad and started writing…
“I dove in head first as soon as the ideas popped into my head and have never turned back.”
I began by writing down all the different programs, that you see as Levels 1-8 on MathiasMethod.com which teach people how to grow stronger from a beginner level, all the way through competitive strength sports. That same day I also put together the Daily 30, which teaches people to commit to themselves every day, and always be moving forward towards their goals. I have now done the Daily 30 every day since! I even did the first drawings of our Mathias Method Logo with all of its colors that same day, alongside the help of my family. I dove in head first as soon as the ideas popped into my head and have never turned back…
