Jim Caiafa, a bodybuilder in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, talks about his experience with Muscle Activation Techniques™ at Muscle Activation Schaumburg.  Jim shares the improvement he has seen in his training after four sessions of MAT™, as well as the progress he has seen with his back after suffering an injury eight months prior (*disclosed in the video*).


Check out this fantastic testimonial from Jim Caiafa, a bodybuilder in the Chicago area, as he discusses his experience with the MATRx™ process and working with Charlie in preparation for his show:


“Hi, my name is Jim Caiafa, and I am currently 15 weeks out from a bodybuilding competition in the Chicagoland area.

 Charlie reached out to me about a month ago in regards to getting me in and doing some [MAT™] on me. Since that time, I have had about four sessions and I honestly feel a night and day difference with everything that has happened so far.

I would say after our first few sessions I really felt a difference with my lifting and my recovery as far as my body working as one again. Around Thanksgiving of last year I had a back injury where I herniated a disc, and from that point on I was really limited in what I could do as far as my lifting. Since that time (when I first came in to work with Charlie), that (limited feeling) has almost all gone away. Everything feels 100% again.

I am four sessions in and the difference I feel is just amazing. If anyone out there is looking to get in here to change your performance or change how you feel in your daily life, I would strongly encourage you to come see Charlie and get yourself fixed up and taken care of. You won’t regret it.”
