I have been in the fitness industry since the age of 17 years old where I worked as a fitness instructor at LA fitness. I then went on to travel the world working as a personal trainer on 5 different cruise ships. Since working overseas I moved to London where I worked at one of London’s Top health clubs ‘Equinox’ training high profile clients.
Something I pride myself on as a trainer is getting my clients the results they have always wanted. I genuinely care about my clients achieving what they set out to achieve. A painting is an artist’s way to show what kind of artists he/she is, and for a trainer who specialises in aesthetics a before and after photo of his clients will help give you more confidence and an idea of how dedicated your trainer will be.

Practice What you Preach/Actions Speak Louder than words
I have always believed as a trainer that in order to advise someone on how to get in shape you have to be in shape yourself. That is why I will always practice what I preach 100% learning new training methods, and trying different techniques on myself to see what is affective and what isn’t. I believe that in order to advise someone on something you have to have experienced it yourself first. Getting in great shape is more than just physical it can really transform your confidence and mentality for everything in life.
Having reached a major milestone in my life I decided to revisit my long ignored bucket list and finally take action. High up on this list I noticed the entry “exercise/six-pack”. I had never really done any significant exercise in the last 20 years since leaving school and was determined to cross this entry of my list. I then bumped into a friend who had just won the award of “fitness instructor of the year” and he mentioned that he had a personal trainer called Matt Hall. I thought this guy must be good if he is training trainers and researched him further. Amazed at the transformations he had achieved for his clients I arranged a meeting with him and promptly signed up for a course of training sessions.
I cannot express how ecstatic I am with the obviously visible results I achieved within the first few weeks let alone the 3 month stage I am at now. I have friends that ask me to send progress photos of my transformation and all, without fail, don’t believe that I have not photo-shopped the pictures. Obviously I haven’t, and there is no way I could have achieved these results so quickly without Matt Hall. Having never lifted a weight in my life, I was seriously intimidated and absolutely clueless about what to do on the gym floor without him. Matt is constantly adjusting/tweaking routines, correcting errors and motivating me to be the best I can be. Without over-exaggerating, Matt Hall really is a life changing force to be reckoned with and I cannot imagine anyone else being able to help me achieve the results I desired in such a ridiculously short period of time. I now know that I’m not just imagining it because random people are constantly commenting and complimenting me on my physique which feels a bit weird but is definitely satisfying. I just wish I had found Matt sooner and not wasted decades dreaming about what was achievable in a mere few weeks with his guidance. I really don’t need to say anything as my progress pictures speak for themselves, however, I cannot recommend Matt Hall strongly enough.
Training with Matt has been truly “life changing”. Although I have been working in the fitness industry for more an 20 years and know what to do to achieve my goals, making myself do/ find time to do them can be a bit of a challenge. Now that I am in 40’s I thought a six pack was a “ship that had sailed”, but I made a decision to find some time for ME and working with Matt was part of my plan and one of the BEST decisions I ever made.
Matt holds me accountable for my choices, he empowers me to believe that anything is achievable and he never lets me slack off when I say I can’t do anymore – he knows my capabilities and pushes me to a place I haven’t pushed myself too before, I have been overwhelmed with the results!
Matt is a personal trainer of the highest calibre as well as being a thoroughly nice person too. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone that is looking for serious results.
