Matt Holtzmann

Kinesiologist / Director



Growing up on the West Coast of BC, Canada, Matt revelled in the diverse offerings of mountains, sea, lakes, and trails. Athletically, his prowess shone in baseball and basketball before transitioning to collegiate basketball and eventually rowing. Academically, he earned distinctions in kinesiology, exercise physiology, and sociology upon graduating from UFV in 2005.

Professionally, Matt embarked on his career in clinical kinesiology in 2002, seamlessly transitioning into the realm of high-performance sport coaching and sports injury return to play in 2009. Highlights of his career include collaborations with UA and IMG Academy, involvement in summer high-performance professional hockey camps with TWIST Performance and Wellness, and a significant role with the Chinese Olympic Committee as the Director for High Performance and Rehabilitation during the Rio-Summer 2016 and PyeongChang-Winter 2018 Olympic Games.

The opportunity to collaborate with the foremost minds in coaching, rehabilitation, and performance globally has been transformative for Matt. In 2019, following his Olympic experiences, he returned to Vancouver, founding East Vancouver Sports & Rehabilitation Clinic with the aim of reintroducing the professional sport experience and accessibility to grassroots sports and athletes. By 2024, he transitioned EVSRC, alongside new teammates and partners, into One Performance Institute, seamlessly intertwining Rehabilitation and Performance.

Currently, as one of the Directors of One Performance Institute, Matt serves as the head strength coach for the Vancouver Warriors and New West Salmonbellies Lacrosse Teams. He also consults for Athletics and Gymnastics Canada. Matt finds fulfillment in working with high school and college athletes, in addition to spearheading One Performance’s off-season pro-hockey and lacrosse camps.

His specialty interests lie in hockey, lacrosse, and baseball, with a specific focus on speed, acceleration, and power. Matt’s expertise extends to Sport Science and Return to Play (RTP) integration, particularly in facilitating the transition from injury to performance at the professional, college, and high school levels.
