“What can I say about Matt? What nice things can I say?
I began working with Matt last September and it has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
WHY I BEGAN TRAINING WITH MATT:
I was always physically active with sports and fitness classes. I felt I needed something extra and I believed that weight training was the way to go, to not only get in good physical shape, but also to get stronger. However, I was a complete novice and needed some guidance on technique.
It turned out that I have gotten much more by working with Matt than I had expected. His nutritional advice has been top class.
His training plans are really challenging and I really enjoy that they change every few weeks and it’s a constant challenge.
What I really like about Matt as my trainer is that he gets that life is more that just the gym, it’s a life altering experience but nights out and social outings are all apart of life also.
What I didn’t expect from training with Matt:
– He takes no shite or excuses from me. Which is really annoying sometimes!
– He ends up being the voice in your head telling you that you need to consider what protein source you’re going to choose on a meal out. That voice also makes me take the stairs instead of a lift to get in those frickin steps!
It has been an educational journey as I felt I was eating well and exercising well before this challenge. However, it has been an eye opener as to the calories that are in so called ‘healthy’ foods!
For anyone who is considering training with Matt (or any trainer) I know that you might be feeling self conscious or have certain scenarios in your head, but the gym is not like that! People are generally friendly and no-one pays any heed to what you are doing.
Make the move,
Matt takes a total approach to fitness, pushing you beyond your limits, teaching you how to fuel your body, monitoring your progression and helping you adopt a mindset that will not accept failure.”
