Muscle Activation Techniques Now Available at Balance Gym in D.C.

Balance Gym is excited to welcome Grant Wenger, formerly of Chicago, to its Glover Park personal training team!

Grant specializes in corrective exercise, functional movement, and Muscle Activation Techniques® (MAT), a method of testing and correcting muscular imbalances that is proven to reduce pain and restore strength and flexibility. Whether you’re training for competition or recovering from an injury, MAT will help you get the most out of your workout.


Yes! If you’ve ever had an injury or chronic pain, some of your muscles are probably picking up the slack as you exercise and move through your daily activities. Over time, this imbalance can lead to reduced performance or additional injuries.

MAT helps reactivate underperforming and tight muscles, thereby enabling your body to perform better and work more efficiently. MAT is useful for performance, rehabilitation and injury prevention.


Grant offers personal training and Muscle Activation Techniques® sessions.

MAT sessions can reduce pain and restore strength and flexibility — sometimes instantly — and address a wide range of movement limitations, including:

  • Chronic neck pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Knee problems
  • Hip problems
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Muscle tightness / strains
  • Shoulder pain
  • Rotator cuff issues
  • Sciatic nerve pain
