I have been training with Matt since September 2009. At that time I had a number of injuries that weren't readily adaptable to the standard "gym PT session" that seemed to be what every other trainer was offering. I have, over that period of time, lost at least 12kg, achieved a significantly improved overall posture and am suffering far less muscular pain in the course of a normal day.
I could not have achieved this on my own or with any other personal trainers I have experienced and witnessed
Matt's point of difference is an unwavering commitment to your overall health as well as a passion for constant improvement. Also his constantly varied approach keeps you out of the "exercise rut". If you are after a well informed, intelligent and sustainable training regime you should look no further

Over the years, I’ve tried diets, gyms, motivational videos and tapes, walking with friends, even groups with fat-shaking machines – you name it! I’ve been training regularly with Matt now for well over a year – and that’s definitely the longest I’ve consistently exercised – ever! The sessions in the park with Matt are easy-going, fun and always informative. There are no issues of self-image, age or weight, and you always feel encouraged. Gym-type exercise has never appealed to me, but boxing is great fun – you really think about the moves and feel like you’re achieving something mentally as well!
Matt has so much knowledge and passion for physical fitness
Matt has a passion for physical fitness and this is clear in the knowledge he conveys to you in relation to your individual situation. What’s interesting to me (and amazing to my friends) is that I now miss doing the exercise if I don’t do it regularly. The morning workout starts my day on a high note and people at work tend to know whether or not I’ve trained that morning! My stamina and fitness have increased and I notice this in simple things – playing with the dog, running around with my daughter or friends’ kids, cleaning the house, walking up steps or even doing gardening chores!
I’d encourage you to ring Matt – talk about what you want to achieve – I’m sure he’ll suggest a program that will suit you.

All my life I have been keen on different kinds of sport. Having an office job and sitting at my desk all day I felt a need to be active even more so keep challenging myself. I was uncertain if I should do Personal Training although I'd been thinking about it for so long that I decided to give it a go.
I always feel great after a workout, Matt's smiles and encourages me all the timE
I didn't realize there were so many untouched muscles in my body, or that there was a different exercises to tone each one of them. I really enjoy the enormous variety of exercises Matt designed to tone my body, they have allowed me to become really fit. The workouts never get boring. I love the diversity of boxing, skipping and weight training, especially when I can do them outside at the beach or in the gym. Being a skeptic I was surprised when my body fat percentage reduced from 22% to 17%. I always feel great after a workout and I like the way Matt is attentive with smiles and encouragement.

I'm a registered nurse so I already know a great deal about how my body works and what I need to do to achieve the results I'm looking for, Matt has a great deal of up to date knowledge however and his input constantly clarifies and motivates my fitness regime.
He can easily adapt our sessions to my mood and energy level
Matt has a personality I find both refreshing and void of any hang ups, his personal training sessions are
very creative and enlightening, he can easily adapt our sessions to my mood and energy level. I especially enjoy our outdoor training sessions, I find the boxing incredibly invigorating, the Swiss ball and esistance exercises make me toned. Training with Matt gives structure to my week, something to look forward to and prepare for, a sense of achievement and accomplishment. I've trained with Matt for nearly two years now and will continue to do so well into the future.

I’ve been involved in sport and exercise for many years. Soccer, squash and aerobics to name a few. During this time I’ve had numerous injuries (mostly knee and calf problems). Always searching for better ways to increase my cardio fitness, strength and stamina in ways that won’t wreck my body and allow me to still walk ok when I’m 50! I was very glad to meet Matt.
Our workouts have changed my body shape
I wasn't really looking for a Personal Trainer at the time, Matt encouraged me to do a fitness test and a couple of sessions with him to further understand the options he could provide. I’ve not looked back since and have continued training with him for the last year now. Matt gives 150% when working with you, my body fat percentage has reduced by 12%. Matt is very knowledgeable in all areas of exercise and health, always letting me know about healthy eating tips and anything else he feels will improve my fitness. I love the boxing that we incorporate into my workouts as I love the cardio and strength components of it. Matt brings experience to this area, in times before I’ve only been encouraged to hit the pads as hard as I can without much technique at all. Now I can confidently say that I have learnt the basics of boxing and how it’s done correctly. Our workouts have changed my body shape incredibly, we work out on Coogee beach or in the gym, in the sun, by the surf, or at Titan Fitness overlooking the green Coogee turf.Jo 39 Years (Randwick)

I’m about to join the select sixties and over club
I’ve been a frequent user of gyms for about three years now. I was fortunate enough to met Matt when he arrived in Coogee in 2006. When I met him my workouts were becoming a little drab and I wasn’t making much progress. After a few sessions with Matt he’d taught me a better way to achieve results. He also took the time to explain how he designed my work-outs to suit my requirements. I’ve been with Matt for approx five months now and I’ve seen and felt a huge improvement, not only in my looks and health, but also socially. Many thanks.

In the school holidays I did boxing with Matt in the park. My Mum does boxing with him and it was fun and interesting because it’s a different kind of exercise. I think it’s good for your co-ordination and rhythm and things.

Matt taught me a lot about fitness and he was very patient when I tried new exercises. I’d like to do it again in the next holidays.

Before I started working with Matt I didn't think I really needed a pt. lm a chef and photographer who works long hours, I think I eat quite well. That combined with being on my feet all day I didn't imagine training with a Pt could be important for me. The one thing that bugged me however was my bad posture caused by my job.
by the time I got to work I felt full of life
I didn't think I really needed a ptAfter meeting Matt at Coogee beach one day I did a free initial consultation with him so I could give one of his sessions a go. During that first session Matt explained how he'd like to work on some of my postural issues.
He put together a sequence of exercises designed to strengthen my core and lower back so I could obtain better posture.
After some outdoor sessions I joined the gym Matt also works out of, he designed a gym program that l was comfortable with, he is always happy to share information with me to help with my training.
A year down the track I feel a lot better with much more energetic, my posture has improved a great deal. From someone that didn't want to train or wasn't aware of the benefits that it would provide. I can still be pretty lazy at times, but Matt is always giving positive energy and tips to keep me on track.

In the past I've not been much into exercise or fanatical about sports, all I did was walk a lot really.
I feel better about myself than I can ever remember
