"Coming off of a mediocre college football career as a defensive lineman with a bench max of 395, squat of 375, and hang clean of 315, at 265 pounds body weight and approximately 22% body fat, I had the background of a power athlete, and the ability to generate a reasonable amount of explosive power. I graduated and received a commission as a 2LT in the United States Army. I turned to Matt to help me generate the muscular and cardiovascular endurance required to be successful in this organization. Matt engineered a workout program that saw me drop my body weight to 230, my body fat to 14.5%, my 5 mile run from 42:00 to 35:40, and my 12 mile ruck march with an approximate 65 lbs load from 3 hours and 30 minutes plus to 2 hours and 45 minutes, enabling me to crush RAP week at the US Army Ranger school. But more importantly, my exposure to Matt's mindset, his warrior ethos and his commitment to completing his mission, helped me to break through to the next level as a war fighter, paratrooper, and Army leader. To anyone attempting to achieve uncommon results, I would advise the first step is to strip your life of everything that doesn't get you closer to that goal, commit to the process, and find a coach to guide you through that process. If your goal is physical in nature, you can't do better than Deiana's Raw Training."

“Call it the Dungeon, the Warehouse, or the Factory, Matt Deiana's R.A.W Training facility is the perfect place where committed athletes can take their game to the next level. After training with Matt for almost 10 years now, I can honestly say that without his efforts as a trainer and mentor I would not have been able to accomplish any measure of success without him challenging me everyday to be better. Deiana’s expertise in exercise science and nutrition, and his no-nonsense mentality are the perfect formula to mold any dedicated athlete into a true warrior. I am truly grateful for all the accolades he has helped me achieve and I am confident that any individual with a tenacious work ethic, the right amount of determination and Matt’s guidance can achieve any level of success they desire.”

When you get Matt as a trainer, you’re getting someone who cares about your success and helping you in every way he possibly can. I attribute my achievements on the football field and basketball court to how much Matt motivated me. Now, as a high school football and basketball coach, I urge all of my players who want to take their games to the next level to train with R.A.W. Training in order to reach their true potential. "

Any athlete of any level that wants to unlock their potential this is the place for you. The beasts coming out of the place on a regular basis is the only sales pitch anybody needs.

"Matt Deiana’s R.A.W training facility is not your stereotypical club. There are no juice bars, no breaks and definitely no quitting. Only well driven athletes who want to perform and exceed their expectation prefer to workout with Matt. I have trained with Matt for the past four years and now I am a junior in high school. I play football, lacrosse and I run track. This past football season I was able to lead Section 1 in rushing because of Matt’s expertise. His speed and weight training has transformed my body and mind into the athlete I am today. I would encourage any young athlete who takes sports seriously to train with Matt if they want to be successful."

Deiana's RAW Training
"Training with Matt Deiana throughout the summer of 2017 was an awesome experience that I’ll never forget. Matt’s own experiences participating in colligate athletics as well as extensive training with D1, D2, and D3 athletes of all different sports demonstrates his knowledge and ability to transform any athlete. He uses fun and creative ways for athletes to see improvement both mentally and physically. Working with Matt this past summer, I noticed a significant difference and felt stronger and faster heading into my 2017 season. Overall, I would highly recommend training with Matt in any of his programs to see a huge difference and any athlete trying to take their game to the next level. "
