Dr. Matt Jordan completed his Master of Science in exercise and muscle physiology and his PhD in medical science at the University of Calgary. Matt got into research for two reasons: first, because of the importance to have an evidence-based system for athletes to return to sport after injury. Second, because he has always been curious about how things work, and he really enjoys being able to work at the intersection between performance coaching and performance science.
