Matt Hill  - Personal Trainer 

 

Matt loves training people and helping them achieve what they never thought possible. Even before becoming a personal trainer he would regularly get family and friends to train in the gym and cook healthy meals to show them the positive effects that health and fitness can have on the mind and body.

Matt has had personal experience of lacking in confidence so used the gym to build his mind and body to become a more confident and outgoing person.

 

“I believe exercise is one of the most basic human needs, so it's brilliant to see when people can bring that back into their regular lifestyle and feel amazing for it.”

 

Matt loves lifting weights in the gym and doing any crazy fitness challenge that is thrown his way. He also enjoys going for nature walks with his family to rest his mind and spend time with friends.
