Some of you might be asking, “who the hell is Matt Weik?” And I’m totally fine with that. It goes along with a funny article I wrote last year called, “The Quiet Life of a Fitness Writer.” The fact of the matter is, I’ve been in the industry for over 15 years, yet my name doesn’t ring a bell with most. Why? Because I stay behind the scenes. To be honest, I’m an introvert, despite what those close to me may think. I’m not the type of guy who goes out and is the life of the party or does crazy things to get attention. I’m the guy who sits behind a desk late at night and types content until his finger start to cramp up – and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
You never knew you knew me
When you read something online, do you remember the author or writer? Or, do you simply remember the content? More times than not, I’m willing to bet you don’t even look at the author’s name and skip right over it in order to get to the article itself. My writing career started over at Bodybuilding.com. Since, then I’ve been in nearly 100 magazines, over 2,000 websites, published several books (both as a ghostwriter and under my own name), and my work has been viewed over five million times (probably way more, but it’s hard these days to keep track with everyone sharing my articles and content). I’m not saying you know me, but I’ll willing to bet you’ve read something of mine over the past 15+ years.
Why do I write so many articles each year?
A better question would be, “Why not?” To be honest, I want to put out information that people can use to better their lives. There’s way too much BS on the internet these days with people writing their opinions on subjects rather than gathering facts. This misinformation can be costly if people start buying into it. For me, I enjoy helping people. I grew up when the internet was only first coming around with the likes of AOL and snail-speed dial-up connections. The internet wasn’t flooded with information like it is today.
