Matthew Bildstein

Fitness Instructor

I first became involved in Country Life Kids Camp in the summer of 2016 and then became the head Boot Camp Fitness Trainer in 2018.  I am a graduate of Padua Franciscan High School & a successful Student in the Williams Honors College, studying Engineering at the University of Akron.   My greatest strength is my determination to succeed.

This is most evident as I was a three-sport varsity athlete (Basketball, Cross Country, and Track and Field) succeeding at the highest level while still managing to maintain a 4.1 GPA. 

I was nominated by my coaches to be involved in the Athletic Leadership Council, called Positive Coaching Alliance.  I was selected because of my athletic and leadership achievements.  I am looking forward to using my athletic skills in basketball, soccer, agility and knowledge to teach and motivate young athletes how to lead on and off the field or court.
