I have been a member of the Queens Diamond Leisure Centre for many years. I have been using my own gym program 3 to 4 times a week for a long time and not really seeing any changes and feeling stuck in a bit of a rut.
On a recommendation from one of my gym buddies I decided to book some PT sessions with Matt…… what a great decision. Matt listened to what I was looking for and put me at ease immediately. We worked out that my program was ok but I had got into some bad habits. Matt corrected my form and I was amazed at what a difference just making one or two changes to my routine.
I had a PT session a week for 12 weeks with Matt and feel like I am back on track, out of my exercise rut and enjoying the gym again.
I would recommend Matt to anyone from beginner to long time gym user like myself to consider a block of PT sessions to give your gym program a new lease of life with a great instructor.

I was with Matt for 5 months. I had a hip injury and was told to do low impact exercise. Matt sorted out a training plan and helped me to achieve my goal of getting back to running.

Throughout this time my confidence and strength grew. I personally would recommend Matt as your personal trainer because he always asks how your doing and works around his sessions if your injured or if your not feeling a hundred percent.

Matt will explain a lot, this is down to him telling you how your progressing and going through each exercise thoroughly. If you want something achieving Matt is the person to go to.

I was genuinely impressed with his services and I would like to thank Matt for everything that he helped me with. Genuinely he is a friendly, caring and fun person to train with who does make you work hard.

I would like to thank Matt for everything he has done during my training. Matt taught me how to use all of the equipment within the gym and explained how I must use them to efficiently reach my target. I would highly recommend Matt as the right person for anyone needing help reaching their fitness goals.

Through Matt providing supervised exercise in the gym, and guidance enabling me to increase my endurance from 5km to 10km over 4 weeks, without incurring injury, I achieved my goal of completing an 11km run for charity. I am very satisfied with the friendly, courteous and professional service Matt provided.

I have been using Matt as a personal trainer for the last 5 months having been out of the gym since the covid lockdown. Matt listens to any physical problems that you have and tailors your program accordingly. Once I started my programme Matt continually checked my form advising where changes were needed to get the best from the exercise. The programme is regularly updated as part of your monthly review and then agrees what to do next. On a personal note Matt is a warm and friendly person who makes you work hard but keeps it fun, he will always try to be flexible when you need to change a session or have an injury or weakness that means you can’t do what was planned. I would highly recommend that you sign up.

I’ve been training with Matt for 2 weeks now. During that time I’ve noticed progress taking place. His approach is energetic and he does like to talk a lot. Sometimes during exercises this can be a bit annoying. But the sessions seem to be working, even after just 2 weeks.
