Matt Houston has always been an enthusiast of competitive sports, but it was not until his college years that he discovered his true passion for endurance sports.

It began with a short bike ride in Palm Springs where he was handed a pamphlet for the Newport Beach Triathlon. Two months later, he toed the finish line and hasn’t looked back.

Having played high school football in Los Alamitos, Calif., Houston was looking for a new activity to drive his passion for sports when he arrived at the University of California, Davis (UCD).

He joined the collegiate triathlon team at UCD and competed for two years, which only furthered his love for the sport.

After graduating from UC Davis, Houston moved back to Southern California where he hopes to apply his passion for endurance sports and his experience in retail management to help people better themselves and achieve their goals. Today, Houston continues to compete in numerous triathlons, running and swimming races throughout the country.
