Matt Jansen (born July 7, 1989) is a bodybuildingcoach and bodybuilder. His highest placings as a coach have been four top 5 placings at the Mr Olympia Contest in the following divisions (Figure, Women's Physique) and ten top 10 placings (Mens open bodybuilding, 212 bodybuilding, Figure, Womens Physique) as well as helping 15 amateur athletes turn pro. He currently lives in Flowery Branch, Georgia.
Jansen' interest in bodybuilding began at the age of 12 through his early childhood friend Jim Haymore. Jim had a physique at that time that was beyond his year, he claims, that inspired Jansen to start devoting himself to bodybuilding.
Due to Matts growing interest his in bodybuilding and weight training Jansens father Richard bought him some old flex equipment for him to have in his basement. This was his introduction into weight training and he trained on that equipment from the age of 12 to the age of 14 where he then got his first gym membership.
At the age of 14 Jansen stepped into a gym for the first time. He had played soccer at a high school level and but whenever he was not playing he was doing his best to improve his body at a young age. Jansen continued to build his friendship and passion for bodybuilding with his friend Jim Haymore and at the age of 20 he competed in his first show with his friend Jim. Jansen competed in both the Junior and Open Classes where he took 9th in Junior and 6th in the mens open lightweight division.
Jansen has made his mark on the sport of bodybuilding more as a coach than as a bodybuilder himself. His most notable athletes that he has helped prepare for competition have been Justin Compton, Nathan De Asha and the late Dallas McCarver Within his own bodybuilding he has taken a slow and steady road of progress starting out competing at 154 lbs in 2010 and at his last contest which was the NPC USA Championships he had his best showing and highest placing of his career placing 3rd in the Heavyweight class at a bodyweight of 222lbs.  .
