Meet Coach Slice

Matt - “Coach Slice”

Who is Coach Slice?

His name says it all, after slicing his leg open during his first WOD at CrossFit Rebels, it was from then on that Matt was known as Slice. Born and raised in Florida, Slice grew up athletic and played high school football as a fullback and middle linebacker. Although his family is still in South Florida, his dog Nole keeps him company here in Clearwater.

Slice is a Police Officer and enjoys any sport and outdoor activity such as fishing, football, or boating. And, for the inner child, he also has annual passes to Busch Gardens and Disney! He loves pizza and tacos but hates anchovies. Most people don’t know that Slice does flash mobs in women’s neon green volleyball shorts with the song “Sexy and I know it”!

Slice found CrossFit thanks to a CrossFit Rebels athlete in 2011. He loves that CrossFit is a healthy and fit community of strong-minded, encouraging athletes. Slice is a loud, motivating coach and he just can’t stand still! He is a technical lifter and loves helping athletes tweak their lifts. He holds CrossFit Level 1 and 2 Certificates, as well as CrossFit Football and CrossFit Olympic Lifting certified.

I thoroughly enjoy helping people achieve their fitness goals and the best feedback is hearing their success story from the help they received.
