Contest prep coach and bodybuilder Matt Porter passed away. It was a real shock for the whole bodybuilding community.
Since Matt prepped competitors for the 2019 NPC Emerald Cup, he wasn’t feeling well. A number of doctors thought he had pneumonia. He was diagnosed just a bad cold, nothing more.
Matt Porter’s wife Rachel Prince Porter shared the details of Matt’s health problems, as well as scene when the bodybuilder passed away in front of her at their home on Facebook.
Matt Porter passed away this morning. Matt was the greatest man I have ever known. Lord and everyone else knows I am not…
Matt Porter was only 34 and had a wife Rachel and a son Noah.

As many of us know already Matt Porter passed away today. Everyone who knew Matt knew what a great guy he was. Always positive, always upbeat. Never had a bad thing to say about anyone. Just a good guy all the way around. He and his wife Rachel did not have life insurance because Matt had a pre-existing heart condition. There has been a go fund me set up to help with the funeral costs. The link is in my bio you can just click on it there. Rachel and Noah ( Matt’s son) have a rough time ahead and our prayers go out to both of them. Rest easy Matt. We will all see you soon enough. #mpasupps #mattporterapproved #mattporter
