Matthew explained each exercise in great detail and it is clear he is an expert in this area. I felt at ease and supported during the training session. He suggested exercises that I can put into practice to build up strength and also the importance of stretching. Matthew is a great trainer.

So grateful for meeting Matthew and training with him. He’s experienced, kind and super supportive. Challenging me to push my limits in line with my goals.

Matthew also advised me on exercises to concentrate on outside of training sessions to help condition my arms against shaking during bench press etc. Top lad

I did a session with Matt. I wanted to know the pull-ups. He was well clear when explaining the forms. He didn't rush at all. Apart from that, having seen him training other clients, I can say Matt is very approachable, gentle yet firm in his trainings. He isn't bossy or over pushy. In overall, as a female client, I felt comfortable and will certainly recommend his PT services.

Matthew is a knowledgeable and conscientious trainer who makes you feel comfortable whilst simultaneously pushing you to your limits. (There is little appreciation for this in the moment but feels great after 😁)
He adds a great energy to the gym and would highly recommend to all.

Matthew is an outstanding personal trainer. Knowledgeable, friendly and with passion for his work and a true interest in helping you achieve your training goals. In my case he was able to pinpoint my weak spots and tailored an approach that works wonders for my very particular and specific needs of balancing strength with a full range of mobility.
Beyond his technical knowledge and expertise though, what I feel sets him apart is his ability to infuse enthusiasm and inspiration, motivating me towards work I have avoided for years.
A great addition to the Clissold team, I very highly recommend him.

Honestly an incredible PT. Matthew really knows how to meet your needs and was really able to motivate me to move into the right direction. After meeting him I was driven to attend one of his classes where he pushed me do better than I thought I could. 10/10 great guy. Will be back to do more work. Thank you!

Very useful session indeed. Matthew took me through what I needed to do to make my training more effective and so better reach my goals. He was very knowledgeable about what exercises I could be prioritising, explained in-depth why they work and showed me the right form to make sure I am doing them safely. He also explained to me various modifications that I could use as I build up strength. He was very encouraging and empathetic throughout.

Matthew is a fantastic trainer who creates very fun tailored sessions, that are also challenging but rewarding. I wanted to become faster and more powerful and with Matthew's experience in American football. He was able to incorporate exercises and mobility drills that helped me achieve these goals and help me improve my performance in football.
