Testimonials

Hear from those that have worked with me 

/// Udo R, Entrepreneur

"Before I started working with Matt I was low in energy, power and emotion. I had no confidence in myself when it came to my eating and exercise habits.

The biggest change I’ve seen has been in my habits and practices that I have learnt from Matt throughout the programme. Every week I have taken small steps forwards in my habits towards reaching the vision I have for my health.

The journey has been one of my greatest achievements in life. 

Matt has a gift with his knowledge and is an inspiration in sharing it.

My daily routine has changed dramatically where I have now become someone who loves exercise, making healthy eating choices and sleeps really well..

It is a pleasure to share my experiences of Matt with you."

"As a type 2 diabetic I was struggling over many years whereby my medication was ever increasing to the point where my GP suggested that I was going to have to go on insulin injections. When I started working with Matt, I set a target for Matt to help me lower my sugar and cholesterol levels within the first three months, and agreed with my GP that we would postpone the insulin decision accordingly. 

 

After the first three month working with Matt, my GP told me that if I could keep this up, he would start reducing my daily medicine intake. We are now in the phase where we are doing this.

 

Matt has developed a customised diet and exercise approach for my body and my metabolism, which leads to much better results than standard approaches. The herbs that I am being advised to take have led to positive results not only with the lowering of my blood sugars but, combined with exercises tailored to my level of fitness, it has led to an overall increase of energy and I have lost 10kgs so far.

 

I feel that I am in the beginning of a new more healthy life than ever before, with more energy to make sure that I enjoy it to the full."

"I started working with Matt as after my latest medical at work I realised I really needed to make some big changes or I was going to end up in poor health, which I really didn't want. After speaking with Matt I recognised that he provided the kind of holistic coaching and training that I was after that would address all areas of my lifestyle. His approach fitted perfectly with my busy schedule, progressed me at just the right pace and as a result I have seen a massive transformation without it being hard work. My cholesterol and blood pressure are down, I am thinner, more toned, I sleep better, I'm more energetic, look younger and my chronic back pain and upset stomach are gone. Working with Matt I have learnt a lot about how to truly take care of my health and body, which so often goes against what we are taught about diet and exercise. Contrary to what I previously believed you don't need to invest lots of time and in lots of equipment to be fit and healthy."

"It gives me great pleasure to happily write a testimonial for the work Matt and has done with me over the past 14 months. I used to lead a very healthy and fit lifestyle but my work life over a few years led me to becoming very unhealthy and overweight. I decided I wanted to get my healthy lifestyle back on track and had heard of Matt from the gym I had just started back with. 

Before working with Matt, I was constantly tired and struggling to maintain concentration during the day. I was also getting concerned about my health, which I felt I was neglecting to focus on work and growing my fledging business. Any attempts at trying to live and eat healthily were random and ineffective. I knew what I needed to do, but didn't know how to go about things in an effective , organised and consistent way.

Working with Matt, I've had a much better appreciation for the importance of nutrition, light and movement, and this included challenging societal norms and my own preconceived notions and habits. Through an in-depth study of cause and effect, I now eat better throughout the day and have a much healthier and consistent morning and evening routine (a combination of eating and sleeping at the right time, combined with consistent and manageable exercise and a carefully planned exposure to different sources of light throughout the course of the day).

Matt has given me a structure and a framework to help tackle my suboptimal lifestyle that I was leading which resulted in my tiredness and poor cardiovascular health. As a result, I now have a routine that I can easily follow, and a plan to fall back on when things get hectic. I now feel energised more often, concentrate better and feel much healthier (evidenced by a marked reduction in my overall cholesterol level, which I honestly did not expect).

I highly recommend working with Matt because he explains the fundamentals of different elements of lifestyle he is about to recommend before helping you to implement them in manageable and sustainable ways to suit you, and your work/family/leisure time. Also, knowledge is nothing without implementation and having someone keep an eye on you constantly leads to consistent and effective action, and the building of habits which is the essence of long lasting change.

"As a former marathon runner, it's fair to say I've always been interested in fitness and nutrition however following the birth of my twins and a promotion at work, finding the time and inclination to wade through the myriad of health advice available in shiny books and glossy magazines all began to feel overwhelming. I tried a few of the latest diet methods but although successful in terms of getting my weight down (for a few weeks anyway) they exasperated my tiredness and affected my ability to concentrate. As a consequence, I was not able to stick with these methods for very long. 

 

I thought feeling constantly tired, hungry (not to mention irritable and bad tempered) went with the territory of being an (almost) 40 year old working mother of small children. I was in short, resigned to the fact that this was my life now, that I wasn't able to prioritise my own health and wellbeing and any efforts to do so would be futile because of my age.

 

The changes Matt introduced me to initially were very small (changing my erratic breakfast habits for one) but the immediate results I have to say were remarkable. I'm not talking about a rapid, dramatic weight loss here, I'm talking more about the effects on my energy levels and mood. The constant tiredness and hunger pangs were gone and I could see changes to my tone and physique which led me to think it was possible to achieve the body shape I thought would evade me given I was heading into my 40's.

This is the longest amount of time I've stuck with anything like this. This is largely because the changes in habits are simple to integrate into everyday life, for example no one is pointing and saying 'spot the 5:2er' when I sit down to have a meal in a restaurant and I can easily join in with what the rest of my family are eating. I'm still working with Matt because by working with him, anything I thought unrealistic or unachievable before has now become very doable. I'm now excited to see where I can go with all this, for that feeling alone, I would recommend Matt's programme to anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation to how mine was."

"When I first started with Matt I was struggling to lose weight and thought that I could lose weight by eating less but with Matt’s education I found many techniques to help lose weight and improve my lifestyle.

Nutrition has played a massive part in my results and I now understand what is needed to live a healthy life.

As a result of working with Matt I am now able to lose weight and feel better about myself, create a positive attitude to help with things in the future."
