Strength and conditioning, long-term athlete development, fat loss, Olympic lifting.

Introduction

Matt’s two greatest passions in life are fitness and sport and throughout his career he has been lucky enough to have succeeded professionally within both industries.

Matt has worked in the fitness industry for fourteen years and competed in professional football (soccer) for four years with Hyundai A-league teams including Gold Coast United, Brisbane Roar and more recently the North Queensland Fury. He has held strength & conditioning positions with the Brisbane Roar (2016-2017), the NRL Queensland Rugby League Referees and various young professional and semi professional athletes.

Matt’s professional experience with sporting teams, coupled with his academic achievements in sports and exercise science and years of service in the fitness industry has subjected him to an expansive array of top level strength and conditioning, resistance training, rehabilitation, group fitness and various cardiovascular training methods which has given him a well-rounded and superior approach to fitness training.

Approach to coaching & training

“My favourite quote is ‘Just do it’ by Nike. To me there is no truer or simpler saying.  There are many techniques, diets and gimmicks which will try to persuade you that weight loss or conditioning is easy. The truth is, there is nothing easy about exercise and therein lays its appeal. It’s supposed to make you uncomfortable but the results translate into comfort in everyday life.

If you don’t have a go and push yourself to the limits, you won’t achieve in fitness or in life. So do something that scares the shit out of you every day. Have a red hot dig, jump in with both feet and work your socks off no matter how difficult, then take pride in what you have achieved, no matter how big. The little victories sit up there, right next to the big ones.”
