My name is Matt Dengler M.Ed, MS, RDN, LDN I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian in Charlotte, NC. I am a former NCAA football player who has always strived to achieve optimal physical performance for athletes and myself. As a former teacher and coach for 8 years, I've developed a passion for helping athletes perform at their highest levels through proper mechanics and nutrition necessities. This passion led me to quit teaching and pursue further education in nutrition. I dedicated the next 8 years of my life to receive a formal education in both physiology and nutrition. In my pursuits, I earned a Masters Degree in Sports Sciences from Wingate University, Wingate, NC (2011) and a Masters of Science degree in Human Nutrition from Winthrop University, Rock Hill, SC (2016).
In early 2018, I opened my private practice, RxRD Nutrition LLC. in Charlotte, NC and I work closely with fitness communities providing science-based nutrition information to help athletes fuel their performance, achieve nutrition goals, and help create lifestyle changes. I currently work with multiple gyms in the area to not only provide accurate nutrition information but I also work with clients 1-on-1 to provide detailed customized nutrition plans for athletes. By providing science-based nutrition information I strive to help athletes of all ages to achieve their weight management, sports performance, and lifestyle change goals.
