A conversation with Greg Roskopf
This episode of TFBF features a pioneer in manual therapy Greg Roskopf. As the author of the Roskopf Principle and The Jumpstart into MAT book and the founder of Muscle Activation Techniques™, he not only developed the MAT™ program but also created a curriculum for this technique that has been taught to students all across the globe.
Greg has devoted his career to the study of the “cause and effect” of the muscular system and how it relates to pain. Greg has worked as a consultant for various professional sports teams including the Denver Broncos, Utah Jazz, and Denver Nuggets.
Beyond this, Greg works with clients at all physical capability levels who are looking to address challenges they experience due to injury, stress, or trauma to their muscular system. Greg started his career in California as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at Fresno State University from 1985-1988. Greg left his full-time role as a strength coach in 1988 to develop a business in personal training and sports performance, yet continued to work with Fresno State’s medical staff, as a consultant, until he was hired to work full time with the Denver Broncos in 1997. Greg currently lives in Denver, Colorado with his family
