Albert Matheny grew up running, swimming, surfing, climbing, biking, lifting, and, of course, eating. His running led him to a five-year career as an athlete at the University of Florida, where he competed at the S.E.C. championships for the Gators in both track and field and cross-country. Post-collegiately, Albert trained and competed professionally under Barb Lindquist, the former world #1 ranked triathlete.
In the summer of 2008, Albert underwent hip surgery, from which he fully recovered, returning to competition later that year.
Academically, Albert completed Bachelor of Science degrees in Exercise Physiology and Food Science/Human Nutrition, a Master of Science degree in Human Performance, and he earned his licensure as a Registered Dietitian.
Throughout his career, Albert has researched nutrition to improve training, recovery from injury, and general health. He is well-versed in creating individual nutrition plans to complement specific training program goals. Currently, Albert serves as the consulting dietitian for DB Track Club, a professional track and field training group lead by Rana Reider (USA Track and Field National Coach of the Year in 2011).
Albert specializes in integrating his nutrition and physiology background into his training program design. He is skilled in the areas of weight loss, building lean muscle mass, core strength, triathlon training, kettlebells, and corrective exercise for injuries.
