“Setting down roots in Kansas City was huge for us,” Mahomes explained to Bleacher Report. “I think the people are what we love the most about Kansas City. They have such a passion for the community, the food, the football team and they treat us just like we’ve been here our whole entire life. We’re trying to be here for a long, long time. That was the biggest thing of getting the house is we plan on being here for 20 years-plus.”
Matthews reiterated Mahomes’ comments by noting they plan to be in Kansas City for a “long time.”
“[We want to be in Kansas City] A long time. Very long, we love it here,” Matthews added.
Matthews Runs Her Own Personal Training Business
Both Matthews and Mahomes love athletics and share a bond over their competitive spirit. Matthews played professional soccer in Iceland before starting her own personal training business. Matthews talks about her philosophy on her fitness company’s website. Matthews leans on her experience as a college athlete and also graduated with a kinesiology degree.
I am a former college soccer player who went on to play professionally in Iceland. By the end of my first season, I truly began to fall in love with being in the gym more than being on the soccer field. Playing sports my whole life got me into fitness and playing in college taught me about strength training, wellness and maintaining peak fitness to perform at an elite level.
As a Certified Personal Trainer with a four-year bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, I have experience with all levels of fitness and have carried that experience with me to create exercise programs for people at all stages on their fitness journey.
