About

Matt Walrath

I can help you get leaner, and perform better AND create an online business that allows you to live the life you want while helping more people than you could in-person only.

My favorite topics to learn and teach about are:

  • Nutrition
  • Behavior change
  • Business
  • Personal development/inner work.

One of the best places to hear about what I have learned in each area is the Beyond Macros Podcast

And as the owner of Beyond Macros– the sustainable transformation nutrition coaching company- I am constantly pushing myself to learn and grow in the areas of:

  • Coaching long-term behavior change
  • Being an effective leader
  • Creating a remote team with a strong culture
  • How to grow an online business where everyone involved THRIVES.

Nutrition

Background

I blazed the long and difficult trail from a short and skinny kid who rode the bench in every sport to a 2x CrossFit Games Regionals Athlete and All-American Lacrosse player with opportunities to play professionally. CrossFit, nutrition, and personal development were all key pieces of my transformation.

I discovered CrossFit back in 2006 and earned my CrossFit Level-1 a few years later, where I learned about the Zone and Paleo diets.

My mind was blown because this was the first time I realized that there was more to nutrition than “eat more and take supplements to get big, eat less and take other supplements to lose weight”

It led me to start studying nutrition after it helped me personally have the energy to excel in both college athletics and academics.

While still in college, I completed my Precision Nutrition Level 1 certification while taking courses in Complementary & Alternative medicine (CAM). The CAM courses taught me how to take a ‘zoomed out’ view of healing and understand the whole picture- including the role of environment.

My journey with nutrition coaching started with humble beginnings running 6-week nutrition courses and writing meal plans at Paradiso CrossFit in Los Angeles.

Since then, I have grown Beyond Macros to a staff of 6 coaches and we have helped over 13,000 people learn how to make sustainable nutrition transformation since 2016.
