Sin City Training Client Testimonials

As a personal trainer and health coach, I have met many clients over the years.

All had various goals and focus towards fitness and health. Each client as unique as the other.
But as unique as they were, they all had three things in common. Passion, dedication and strength.

Passion towards their fitness dreams and goals. Dedication in achieving their optimal health. And the strength of every client, that’s what motivates and drives me.

So, I have compiled the testimonials of some of my clients over the years. Everyone had different goals and expectations. You don’t have to be an athlete to train with me. What’s important is the fact that you are here. Taking your first step into becoming the best version of you. My goal, is to guide you there.

So have a look around and I hope to see your testimonial here one day!

Before I started with Matt I never dreamed I could ever get into a workout regimen. I have always hated exercising but Matt works within my limitations and abilities and pushes me to excel. I will be using his services for many years to come. Plus it’s so exciting to fit into clothes I haven’t worn in years and I feel better than I have in decades. Thanks, Matt, for bringing out the thinner more energetic me!


Extra holiday weight and poor overall eating habits led to some extra and unnecessary pounds prior to my wedding. When I realized that I wouldn’t be able to do it without the help of a personal trainer, I contacted Matt Hanson with Sin City Training for a consultation. Although I wanted to lose a few pounds, I was really looking to change my eating habits and overall physique. With Matt’s nutritional guidance and regular workouts, I noticed that my body was changing within only a few months. I was losing inches everywhere and gaining muscle definition – so much so that at my wedding, my boss (whom I see everyday) remarked that she had no idea how in shape I was! I wouldn’t have looked as great as I did on my wedding without Matt and would without hesitation recommend him to anyone who wants to get into shape or generally look and feel better.

There are a number of things that contributed to my weight problems, such as five major knee surgeries, a lot of stress on the job, quitting smoking and poor choices. At the age of 44 I was an obese 245 pounds. I felt lousy and looked lousy, but moreover, I was a ticking time bomb. I decided to make a change. In order for me to be successful, I was going to need the right kind of professional help. I got that help from Matt Hanson of Sin City Training. Matt worked with me on an eating plan to get control of the foods I was putting in my body. He put together a progressive workout plan that accommodated for the physical limitations of my surgically repaired knee. Matt’s creativity always kept my workouts interesting and challenging. I now am under 200 pounds for the first time in 17 years.

MATT ROCKS!!! I am currently an artist with Cirque du Soleil out on recovery from foot surgery. Because I cannot perform each night like usual, I need a way to keep my athletic physique in shape without doing cardio on a machine because I am unable to. With our workouts and extensive planning in nutrition, Matt actually lowered my body fat percentage as well as weight, and helped me gain and lose inches in each of the places in which I had concern. He fulfilled everything that I had hoped for, and now I’m going back into the show with a better body than I had left with!

I love Matt! Just a couple of months after I started working with Matt I was the most confident I’ve ever been! I saw a huge difference in overall weight and muscle tone! I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to be happier and healthier!

Matt is a phenomenal trainer. He takes the time to get to know what your needs are and what you truly want to accomplish. I was trying to tone up for my upcoming wedding and we accomplished exactly that. I felt so much better after only the first two sessions and could really see a difference.

I’m a professional dancer here in Vegas and my job keeps me in good shape. I recently was hired at a show where my dancing was pretty minimal and I realized I needed more of a work out at the gym to keep an athletic body. When I was looking for trainers, Matt came highly recommended. After working out with him for a few weeks, I noticed I was leaner in my midsection and legs. Now that it’s been a few short months I see strong muscle definition, I feel better and I’m more confident. I know every time I have a session with him, he’s going to push me to get a good workout. I’ve passed on his contact information to many of my friends.

I have been training with Matt for two years. I have great results, having lowered my body fat, strengthening my core, my legs and my arms. He changes exercises each time to strengthen areas that need strengthening, to improve cardiovascular fitness, and to avoid boredom. Also I use Matt to keep from injuring myself, to keep from over exerting exercises, and to keep coming to the gym. I’m lazy! Thanks to Matt, my anti-aging goals are met because I wouldn’t think to do the things Matt has me do. Matt isn’t the type of trainer who exudes false enthusiasm, but he does encourage the best out of you in a low key manner. If you don’t like disingenuous rah-rah, you’ll love Matt.

My idea of working out before I met Matt was going to the gym occasionally, maybe doing a workout video, and attending Barre classes.  Though I was fairly regular at Barre, I wasn’t getting the results I wanted.  I felt more toned, but I wanted muscle since I really hadn’t ever had it before.  I’ve never been one to work out and feel physically tired and experience real “good” soreness.  Barre class made me sore and I had some results, but after months of doing it, I decided to find a trainer.  I’m so glad I found Matt.  The first week of training opened my eyes to a whole new work out world.  My body was pushed from the start.  But I left the work outs feeling liked I’d accomplished something great.  As the sessions progressed, I felt myself getting stronger.  Matt pushed me to try new things while understanding my limitations since I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.  As I started getting stronger, we increased the weight.  For the first time in my life, I can see muscle definition and I feel like I’m more toned than ever.  Matt also gave me ideas on ways to eat better.  He came up with a meal plan and gave me a list of options for healthy food.  It’s much easier to shop at the grocery store if you have a list of what is good for you!  The bottom line, Matt taught me how to work out.  Before seeing Matt, I would never dream of going to the gym and lifting weights.  After training with Matt, I now know what machines and free weights can accomplish my goals.  He even started my habit of going at least 3-4 times a week.  It’s been great!  I would absolutely recommend his expertise to anyone at any level.

Matt helped me build more muscle tone and strength. He motivated us to keep working and to improve our diet. He provided a meal plan that was really helpful. He helped us get more muscle definition. His personality is really fun and pushes you without being too aggressive. I would definitely work with him again and recommend him to others.

If your looking for a personal trainer that can customize to your goals and that works with you to make sure you surpass those goals than Matt is yor trainer. Matt has been training me for 4 months now and he has improved my quality of life with his training. It is amazing the results I have seen in such a short period of time. I have never felt better and I owe it all to Matt. And best of all Matt is always willing to work with my scheduling to find a time to fit me in. Which is really important as I am a business owner and sometimes times can be tough for me to come by. Thanks Matt for improving my quality of life. If you are looking to get that much needed energy back in life than Matt is your trainer.

I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! I tried for years to lose weight and was unsuccessful doing it on my own. I searched for a personal trainer, and decided on Sin City Training. Matt Hanson has helped me lose over 30 lbs. (and counting!) since I started working out with him- the man knows his stuff! Not only have I lost the weight, but I feel so much better about myself- Matt has truly given me a new life. He’s a great trainer, motivator, and is very knowledgeable. I have a great time when I’m working out with him- he is by far the best personal trainer in Las Vegas!

I’ve had personal trainers over the last 10 yrs and I can honestly say that none were able to help me as much as Matt has. Matt’s training method is just what I needed. I’m not good at getting yelled and screamed and that’s what I like about Matt. What makes Matt different from other trainers I’ve had is that Matt does not Motivate you or Push you, he makes you motivate yourself and push yourself beyond anything you ever thought possible. .. oh, and just so you know, no amount of whining or complaining will get you off from doing those 3 last reps. Matt makes me dig deep within and find strength and endurance that I didn’t even think I had. When I started with him, I couldn’t even run one lap around the gym track without feeling like my heart was going to explode.  Matt challenged my body with exercises that I had never done before and even though I was downright pathetic in every single one of them at the beginning, I am amazed at how much fitter I am only a few months down the road. Today, I can exercise for a whole hour without breaks and I can’t begin to tell you how good that feels.  Working out with Matt has helped me do more than just lose body fat. I sleep better, I’m in a better mood, I have 10 times more energy than I did just a few months ago and I feel good and confident in my own skin. Plus, I now know I can run from danger if I had to.. I highly recommend Matt as a personal trainer. If you’re in the Las Vegas area and you want a trainer that will keep you self-motivated so you actually look forward to your workout sessions, Matt is just the right guy for you. Give him a try. You won’t regret it.


After 40+ years of focusing my time and energy on everything but nutrition and fitness. I had a close group of friends, vibrant career and an amazing family. A great life on so many levels but what I didn’t have was my health or the confidence I had done my absolute best as I had cultivating my family, friends and career. At 47, I was 346 lbs, feeling every ounce of that weight as I got older and older.  I was reading a book about change and the author noted if you reflect on all your life’s greatest moments of change, that the change itself took time, but the idea, the effort and commitment happened in a split second. That jarring moment that changed the path you were on, in a split second course corrected when you decided in your head that you were taking a new path. At that moment I decided I was going to focus on me and I was going to eat clean and exercise. I also decided I was going to hire an experienced professional. Someone to hold me accountable without being overbearing or animated. For me I needed someone focused, resolved and persistent. I did some online research and filled out requests for information with three reputable local companies. The first person to call me back with in the hour was Matt, owner of Sin City Training. Matt is the real deal, a nutritionist, trainer, family man and a down to earth person. Matt is not to hard, nor too soft. Our hour long sessions are all about achieving results by getting straight to work. We discuss the cause and affect of my diet, how to make the best and most nutritious choices. Matt is knowledgeable on both classic and modern approach to supplements, nutrition and physical conditioning. I find Matts physical regiment to be balanced and coaching style to be serious and focused. It’s an hour completely about me, for me to be the optimal me. I’m just short of 10 months and I eliminated over 100lbs through nutrition and exercise.  I have 26lbs more to reach my goal of 220lbs. I have no doubt that Matt helped guide me and that he can help guide you. If you’re ready to make a change. Decide right now, promise yourself to act, that you deserve the best and call Matt Hanson.


Matt from Sin City Training is amazing. I have been training with him for the past 9 months and my strength and physique have improved immensely. I am almost back to my weight when I was a teenager and overall feel more confident about my body than I ever have before.

His approach to personal training is personalized and challenging, but not to the point of complete exhaustion. He is very thorough in creating full body workouts that condition more than one muscle group at the same time.

He is also extremely reliable and easy to communicate with, which makes the workouts fun. He is definitely not one of those aggressive trainers who is overly demanding and curt to their clients. He pushes you hard enough to get the results you want.

I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking to improve their fitness, lose weight, or simply get in shape.


Personable, caring and gets down to business.  Makes YES AND ONE OR TWO MORE part of your new vocabulary.  His challenge was a 73 year old over weight, diabetic, woman with vertigo.  Lost 10 pounds and on the way to more.  TRY MATT, YOU WON’T BE SORRY!!!!!!!


After 11 years of minimal exercise due to multiple back surgeries, Matt has helped me get my life back. He gave me specialized workout routines to increase strength and flexibility and worked on strengthening my core and lower body to help support my lower back. I have been using his services for sometime now and he has got me back into the activities I love, such as golf, something I thought I would never be able to participate in again. Along with a strict nutrition regimen, I have gone down almost 30 pounds and my energy level has skyrocketed. Thank you Matt again for helping me get my life back!!


I have been training with Matt from Sin City Training for just over three months now. In that time I have lost 25 lbs. and approximately 10.5% body fat. Matt not only works with you in the gym but emphasizes proper nutrition as well. In addition to introducing me to “My Fitness Pal”, Matt has developed various meal plans and healthy recipes for me. I have started workout routines several times in the past only to quit weeks or months later. I have never achieved the results that I have so far, in other workout programs/diets. I would highly recommend Matt and Sin City Training to anyone trying to achieve their weight loss and fitness goals.
