Previously, we looked at what fascia is and what its functions are. In this post, were going to look at why its so important for movement. In part one, we explained that fascia covers and connects a range of different structures in the body and creates a continuity of soft tissue. Work by Tom Myers… Read More

Over the previous few years, fascia has gained a lot of attention. At times the research and people opinions can be conflicting, however the more we learn about the fascial system, the more we realise its importance in a huge amount of functions. If you’re a trainer or therapist working with clients, or a client… Read More

With an abundance of different training techniques, it’s often hard to know whats worth incorporating in to your training. Ultimately, different training techniques will suit different people for a variety of reasons such as their athletic background and what they are training for. Most people have a fairly generic training goal of being fitter, stronger… Read More

Triple extension refers to extension at the hip, knee and ankle. In an exercise context it refers to taking an athlete from a “primed” position in which the joints are in slight flexion and ready to move, in to full extension at all three aforementioned joints. This movement is common in a range of movements… Read More

Recently I have been asked a lot about my view on foam rolling, so I have decided to put together a post highlighting my personal opinion, as well as a little bit of the current research. Foam rolling has been around for a while and while it’s widely used, the mechanisms of how it works… Read More

As we previously spoke about in the last two parts of this series, Hip Flexor Tightness (HFT) is a common problem and once this has been diagnosed, a stretching programme should be started to promote extensibility of the muscle complex and prevent future injuries from occurring. While static stretching to this muscle group alone tend… Read More

What Our Customers Think

After injuring himself on set of The Cursed Child while playing Draco Malfoy, Alex contacted me to help him rehab his knee injury and return to full fitness before travelling to New York to continue his role. He is now back to full health and ready to return to the stage – Matt

I had a patella tendinopathy that needed rehab. Matt has been brilliant in bringing it back to full strength. He’s also brought my general fitness back where it needs to be. I highly recommend Matt and his team for both rehab and PT! – Alex

Before I started training with Matt, I had been a member of gyms but never had the confidence or the knowledge to train properly. Matt is great, he explains all of the exercises and demonstrates whilst telling you how they change your body. He is really encouraging. When I started seeing results I found I was looking forward to the gym! I have now started the 12 week online programme and am learning so much about nutrition, fitness and my body, I am six weeks in and have lost weight and am seeing a real difference in how I feel. My lifestyle has drastically changed since I started working with Matt. I am now confident to use the gym on my own, without being self-conscious or feeling out of place. Matt is patient, friendly and a great trainer.

With Matt I’ve managed to lose almost two stone in about 5 months. He’s so helpful and puts up with my mood swings when I’m having a down day.  He’s helped me get clued up with nutrition and taught me what healthy actually is, rather than my warped ideas on it.
The workout programmes change a lot which means I don’t get bored and my muscles don’t get lazy, and I enjoy all the sessions I have with Matt (even if at the time I give him evil stares), doing a variety of different exercises.
If anyone is hesitating in having him as a PT, I suggest you just go for it, you won’t be disappointed and you’ll have fun at the same time.

I would highly recommend Matt as a Personal trainer. I have come along way since my first personal training session and it is thanks to Matt. He is professional yet makes the sessions fun too – keeps me doing different things so I don’t get bored. I like the fact he helps you work on each muscle group rather than just one thing so you get an all round body workout. Also I have had a couple of sports therapy sessions as well which have really really helped with aches/pains and mobility. Matt definitely knows so much when it comes to the human body and exercise!
