MEET THE TEAM
Owner / Personal Trainer
Aryan grew up playing a variety of sports, particularly excelling in tennis. He took up weightlifting in college while pursuing a dual degree in Finance and Accounting from the University of Maryland.
Although Aryan's career began in consulting, his entrepreneurial instincts and passion for fitness led him back to the weight room. After learning about the physiology and biomechanics of the human body to improve his own training techniques, Aryan worked at Gold's Gym for several years before becoming an independent trainer and creating Method Fitness.
He's determined to help others train more intelligently and sustainably while guided by a foundation of science-backed techniques – something he wishes he had when he first started lifting.
Since then, he has devoted countless hours in continued education and certifications and has coached 150+ clients across all levels, ages, and needs.

Mateo Moore is a certified NASM Personal Trainer. Prior to his weightlifting and fitness career, Mateo was a long time Martial Artist training in 6 different styles.
Upon moving to Blacksburg to attend Virginia Tech and discovering there were no local dojos to continue his martial arts practices at, Mateo turned to weightlifting. It proved to be a smooth transition due to the similarities between the two disciplines, including perfecting form and mental motivation.
He's since immersed himself in learning more about exercise science and is passionate about helping others maximize their performance while minimizing injuries.
