I’ve just finished a 12-week block with Matt and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. I wanted to improve my strength. I had tried to learn to train a number of times over the years, and never got very far – I found it boring and intimidating. That perception changed very quickly as soon as I started training with Matt. He is super enthusiastic and knowledgeable and an excellent teacher. He made it accessible and engaging and so much fun. My training sessions became the highlight of my week. I can’t believe how much I learned in 12 weeks, and how much it enhanced my life. I’m already stronger, my posture has improved and I can use a gym with confidence. I understand my body in a way I never had before. Immensely rewarding and highly recommended.


Weights are far and away the best tools for changing your physique; indeed the most unique aspect of weight training is it's capacity for changing the way someone looks. Another wonderful and often overlooked benefit is weight trainings capacity to improve your ability to perform simple everyday tasks from carrying the shopping, to going up the stairs, to mowing the lawn!

There are so many other well documented health benefits, ranging from improved bone density to improved mental health that it's no wonder weight training is considered to be the most beneficial overall form of exercise. I love weight training and I'd go so far as to say that everyone can benefit from regular weight training!



You really are what you eat! You look how you look and you feel how you feel largely as a direct consequence of the food you eat!

There is an overwhelming amount of confusing and often contradictory information regarding nutrition available today but at the end of the day it's really not that complicated! Just follow a simple, easy to follow, personalised nutritional plan using sane, sensible, scientifically proven and sustainable dietary strategies that actually work! Like the ones I recommend my clients follow!

If you're still lost come and see me and I'll help you to navigate through that sea of information so you can take responsibility for your nutrition for the rest of your life!

If you're interested I'll even explain the fundamentals of nutrition – calories, protein, carbs and fats – to you too!


Your thoughts create your behaviour so the cultivation and maintenance of a healthy mindset is the single most important factor in determining whether or not you reach your health and fitness goals. Indeed your mindset is the key to your happiness and success in every aspect of your life!

If you want to reach your goals and enjoy the journey you monitor your thoughts and ensure that your thoughts cultivate and maintain the belief that you can change and grow through consistent effort and hard work because you can! That they ensure you constantly look for ways to improve. That they allow you to create new habits and constantly see yourself from new perspectives, reinventing yourself whenever the need arises and that they allow you to maintain a healthy sense of self esteem and self respect.

If that all sounds impossible I assure you it's not! Come and work with me and I'll prove it to you! I'll introduce you to the wonders of mindfulness, meditation and breathing too!

So today is the day after my 36th session with Matt. The last session in the training block. What's changed? How long have you got? So, so much. There's the physical stuff - I am fitter, stronger, leaner and lighter. I don't have a frozen shoulder anymore. I have huge amounts of energy. I have achieved my weight loss goal. I can navigate a gym. And then there's non physical stuff. The really really important stuff. Within a few weeks of seeing Matt the fog started to lift. After 26 years raising a family and working I was making time for me. Just me. To reflect, to think, to be in the moment and focus on self in a really positive way. To take stock and work stuff out in my head. And where was Matt in all this? Right by my side every step of the journey guiding, training, coaching, encouraging, listening ... holding the space for me. When you are in a session with Matt you know you are in the best hands. Meticulous. And now after 3 months of self discovery I am signing up for another 3 months. Oh and we had some major laughs too!
