I won't tell you it'll be easy, but I will tell you it'll be worth it

About

I have been coaching in Norwich since 2001. During this time I have been involved with one of the largest health clubs in the area for over 10 years, working with a range of clients from complete beginner to professional athlete.

Throughout this period I have accumulated countless hours of hands on practical coaching experience, experience that can only truly be obtained through spending too many hours on the gym floor. However, it is this time and experience that enables me to deliver the very best guidance to you.

I first began my own journey into fitness at the age of 7 when I entered my first martial arts class. Since then I have managed to earn a 4th degree black belt and have had the opportunity to train and coach in the United States, Australia and Europe. In addition to this I have continued to study and work with some of the best coaches in the country, attending regular courses in weightlifting, martial arts, and nutrition, constantly aiming to continue my development within the fitness industry, whilst passing this knowledge on to others.

Over recent years I have worked not only as a personal trainer but also as an exercise referral consultant, working alongside GP's and Physiotherapists, an educational course tutor and an NVQ training assessor.

If you would like to know more or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

“Instead of just coming to the gym and trying to get fit and lose a bit of weight - I’m actually doing it! Matt sets me realistic and achievable goals and continues to offer ongoing support with my training. I also feel much more confident when I workout alone. I feel fitter, slimmer and look forward to our workouts together. I have lost 37lbs to date”.

“After having two babies I had put on 3 stone in weight. Matt developed a training programme to improve my fitness, help me lose weight and increase my muscle tone. Each week he varied the exercises so that I did not get bored. The programme and added nutritional advice meant that the baby pounds started coming off and I now feel fantastic having lost 2 stone!”
LOUISE HUNT

"I have attended Matt’s sessions for over a year and I am the fittest I have ever been. Matt’s knowledge and experience has helped me achieved huge gains in my strength and overall conditioning."
