"I've been athletic my entire life, and have always made 'working out' a part of my life. I've been in good shape before—but I couldn't ever maintain it. Working with Eric through the MTM program has been completely different. 

Not only did I lose 20 pounds of fat and 4.5 inches off my waist—I also gained muscle, strength, and improved my conditioning. 

I added 30 pounds to my deadlift, increased my max pullups from 15 to 20, and decreased my timed one-mile time by 52 seconds." 

- Brent, MTM Coaching Client

Stop obsessing over calories and macros, struggling through unrealistic workouts that leave you burned out and beat up, or wasting money on worthless supplements…

99% of what you you hear about in mainstream health, fitness and nutrition is bullshit.

There is no magic “diet”, secret work out strategy, or miracle supplement that will lead to the lean, musclar body and the thriving health you really want.

And the truth is, you don’t need any of that stuff to massively transform the way you look and feel.

So while the fitness and supplement industry rakes in BILLIONS of dollars per year by convincing people that getting healthy and in shape is a complicated process that involves endless combinations of expensive pills and powders, the fact is...

To achieve a jaw-dropping health and body transformation, you need just two things:

A health and fitness program that fits your goals, preferences, and lifestyle. 

As an MTM client, you'll receive a personalized, professionally designed program that covers each of the 4 pillars of optimal health and wellbeing (outlined below).

The support of a coach who knows how to guide you every step of the way.

Having a coach there to anticipate challenges and offer personalized solutions will eliminate the anxiety that comes with making too many decisions so you can focus on what matters most: Executing the plan. 

Without those two things, you will fail. Every time.

Of course, the quality of the program and the coach providing the support matters—a lot.

That’s why I’ve spent the past decade in the trenches, testing every possible nutrition, workout, and mindset 
"hack," strategy, and method you can think of. 

I paid thousands of dollars to be mentored by the most elite coaches in the world. 

It took me years, hundreds and hundreds hours of time, and countless mistakes... but I refused to quit.

Finally, I cracked the code...

Eric Weinbrenner incredible body transformation

Hey, I'm Eric—the founder of Muscle That Matters. I was able to overcome average genetics and radically transform
my body. I can help you do the same thing. 

And now, I’m ready to share my battle-tested, scientifically backed approach with you.

I call it the “MTM Method.”

And I've spent the past decade testing and refining this method while helping hundreds of men around the world take control of their health and getting in better shape than they ever thought possible. 

Now, it's
your turn. 

When you join my elite 1-on-1 Coaching program, I’ll teach you how to use this revolutionary method to radically transform your health and your body.

You’ll build lean muscle, lose unwanted bodyfat, skyrocket your energy levels, and improve your overall health—and you’ll do it all WITHOUT:

Tracking, weighing, or measuring your food
Trying to muster up the motivation to stick with unrealistic, complicated workouts that you hate doing
Cutting out the foods you love (or becoming the kind of person who brings a protein shake to Thanksgiving dinner)
Abandoning your family and spend hours and hours in the gym every week
Falling for the lie that everything in your life has to revolve around nutrition and fitness if you want to look and feel your best
Shelling out your hard-earned cash for worthless supplements that sneaky ads tell you are a "must have" for getting results (spoiler alert: They're not)

Instead, you'll learn how to: 

Find an approach to fitness and nutrition that works for your goals, lifestyle, and preferences—while still being there for your family, excelling professionally, and having time to rest and relax 

Fuel your body with the nutrients you need to look, feel and perform your best—while still enjoying foods you love (like ice cream, pizza, and all that good stuff)

Build a strong, muscular physique with "show and go" so that you feel 100% confident taking your shirt off at the beach and saying "hell yes!" to any fun adventure life throws your way 

Cultivate an unstoppable mindset, so you can stay motivated and consistent no matter how hectic life gets 

Unlock the secrets of better stress management and sleep, so you can feel calm and focused at home or at work—and attack each day with relentless energy

Stop wasting money on over-priced and over-hyped supplements, and use "targeted supplementation" to only take what your body needs for optimal health and wellbeing

Achieve and enjoy thriving health and vitality, so you can live life on your terms—never being held back from an amazing experience due to physical limitations. 

The result? You’ll become the leanest, strongest, healthiest version of yourself—and you’ll build the habits you need to stay that way, for good.

What I can help you achieve won’t just transform your body.

It will transform your life.

Being happy and in control of your body is the key to building the natural confidence and a sense of well-being that spills into every other area of your life—including family, career, and relationships.

Here’s how it works…

I’ll help you define what “thriving health and fitness” means to you—and then achieve it.

Coaching programs that send you some cookie-cutter meal plan or pre-made workout are a dime-a-dozen. And guess what? That approach will never lead to the transformative, lasting results you truly want (and deserve). With MTM 1-on-1 coaching, you'll get a truly personalized program covering each of the 4 pillars of optimal health and wellbeing—and the support you need to stay motivated, focused, and on-track, every step of the way. 


Learn how to fuel your body with foods that help you look, feel, and perform your best—without complicated formulas or restrictive dieting

Most people are making nutrition far too complicated. Eating good tasting food that helps you look amazing, enjoy incredible health, and feel energy all day really comes down to two things: 1) Understanding and implementing research-backed principles of "good eating", and 2) Finding how to integrate these science-proven principles into your lifestyle, goals, and preferences. I'll show you how to do both. 

You're going to learn how to build the sustainable HABITS you need to eat better for the long term—for life. Once you master these habits, you'll never have to follow other diet again. 

Get a personalized fitness program to build muscle, gain functional strength, improve your conditioning, and shred fat

There is no "one size fits all" approach to fitness. After learning what your specific goals, preferences, schedule, and equipment accessibility are, I'll design a personalized fitness program that will deliver the results that matter the most to you in the most efficient, effective, and safe way possible. Let me take care of all the details—you just focus on executing the plan.

Your personalized fitness program—including strength training, cardiovascular conditioning, stretching, and mobility—will be delivered to you through an innovative app that makes tracking and executing your workouts very simple and straightforward. 

Level-up with key strategies and habits for better sleep, stress Management, & recovery

How are you going to look, feel, and perform your best if stress is running rampant and your sleep is in the gutter? It's impossible. Sleep and stress affect everything from your hormones (yes, including testosterone) and immunity to your ability to lose fat, build muscle, feel happy, think clearly, and more. 

I'll teach you how to proactively and reactively manage stress with targeted recovery strategies—and build the habits and routines you need to get more quality sleep so you can tackle each day with energy and focus. 

Optimize your mindset

Lots of folks make the mistake of thinking getting in great shape is all about the food you ear or sets and reps done in the gym. Not so. 

Truth is, successfully transforming your body begins with your mindset. And I'm not talking about the usual rah-rah "You can do it!" kinda mindset, I'm talking about things like:

How to stay consistent in the gym and with your nutrition, whether you "feel" motivated or not. 
How to evaluate multiple potential plans of action and confidently choose  the fastest and most effective path to your goals
Learning a fool-proof SYSTEM for breaking your big goals down into small, manageable daily habits
How to develop a lazer-like focus on what's most important for reaching your goals—and execute those essentials relentlessly (what you'll learn here can be applied to every other area of your personal and professional life, making you more successful)
How to feel good about the progress you have made—while making necessary adjustments so that you can keep crushing your goals
How to avoid self-sabotage and bounce back quickly when things don't go as planned

We'll cover all this—and a whole lot more. 

Meet your coach

Eric Weinbrenner MTM Coaching

My name is Eric Weinbrenner. 

I'm a former high school teacher who transitioned to the health and fitness industry, coaching others and  helping some of the biggest health and fitness brands in the world grow their businesses as a copywriter and marketing strategist. 

I'm also the founder of Muscle That Matters. 

Starting as a personal trainer in a health club in 2011, I've helped 100s of people transform their bodies (and lives) during that time frame. 

After having two kids (now 10 and 8), I was determined to push back against the "dad bod" culture. I felt a responsibility as a husband and father to be a good example for my family.  

Using what I'd learned through coaching others and years of experimentation and research, I was able to get in exceptional shape—without "dieting" and without spending hours and hours in the gym each week. 

I started Muscle That Matters (or "MTM" for short), to help "normal guys" cut through the b.s. and finally build the lean, strong, muscular body they've always wanted.

My mission is to help men like me—guys who have families and a career and all kinds of other hobbies and responsibilities outside of the gym—unlock their strongest self so they can attack each day with strength, health and confidence.

Ready to achieve the life-changing transformation you've always wanted?

What my clients are saying:

"First time I've been under 200 pounds since I got married two years ago..."

"I've now lost 20 pounds and I feel great! This is the first time I've been under 200 pounds since I got married two years ago. The workouts leave me feeling stronger and more capable of taking on whatever life throws my way—and as a husband and father with a new baby at home, this is very important to me. In the past, I've been able to get in good shape for a short time period, but I could never make it 'stick.' With Eric's program, I feel like I am getting in the best shape of my life AND I'll know how to maintain it for years and years going forward."

"This program has gotten me to a point of a lifestyle change and NOT just a quick fix..."

Following Eric's program helped me lost over 6 inches off my waist. My clothes are fitting looser (in the right areas), but also more snug around my chest and shoulders where I've packed on lean muscle. The approach of changing habits gradually helped me stay focused, positive, and motivated—but the really great thing is knowing I will be able to use all these techniques for the rest of my life!"

Justin, MTM Coaching Client

"The results speak for themselves..."

"Even as a busy father and husband, I lost 10 pounds and 3 inches off my waist while gaining over 3 inches on my shoulders, arms, and chest. And I did it all without "dieting" or spending more than 3 hours in the gym each week. Bottom line: Eric's programs WORK."

Joel, MTM Coaching Client

"I'm in better shape now in my mid-30's than I was as a varsity basketball player in college..."

"After working with Eric, I'm leaner, stronger, and healthier than ever before. I play in a few different adult basketball leagues each year—and now, I keep up with guys 10+ years younger than me with no problem. The best part? This program showed me how to build the best body of my life WHILE being a husband, father of four amazing kids, and working 50 hours per week. If that doesn't tell you how effective (and efficient) this program is, I don't know what will."
