Matt began quenching his passion for “getting one day better” after playing three exciting years in the National Football League. He is originally from the Windy City area, where he earned a football scholarship to the Big Ten’s Northwestern University.
A member of the Academic All-Big Ten team, Matt was a three year starter on the offensive line earning the rank of team captain as a senior in 2004. He helped the team reach two bowl games and was a Big Ten Champion in 2000.
This success led to Matt landing a free agent contract with the Indianapolis Colts moments after the 2005 NFL Draft. As a free agent, Matt earned his way on to the team beating out draft picks in both 2005 and 2006. He accrued two years on the active roster for the Colts and played in twelve games. In February of 2007, he reached the pinnacle of the football world as he acquired a championship ring and became a member of the World Champion, Super Bowl XLI Indianapolis Colts.
Since the fall of 2007, Matt’s passion has been helping others achieve their athletic goals.

Coach Ulrich is a certified National Academy of Sports Medicine, Performance Enhancement Specialist, has advised high school and college strength & conditioning programs, run numerous coaching clinics, given scheduled team motivational discussions, and launched a chain of wellness diagnostics centers Dexa Fit in Chicago and Atlanta.
Through hard work and dedication in the gym on and off the field, he became a three time IRON CAT, an award bestowed only to athletes achieving the highest level of strength, speed, and overall conditioning. As top point earner, Matt was recognized as the best conditioned athlete at Northwestern University in 2003. This success snowballed in 2004 when Matt was acknowledged as a National Strength and Conditioning Association All-American and was voted to the Honorable Mention All-Big Ten team.
