“The harder you work,
the luckier you get.”
– Gary Player


Matt is a Personal Trainer and Strength Coach, originally from a small country town in western NSW. Health and fitness have always been his passions. So much so that he decided at age 16 that he wanted to be a PT. He reached that goal 10 years ago, in which time he’s enjoyed helping others reach their goals.

He moved to the big smoke of Sydney in 2017 and Fitness Playground were lucky enough to nab this career coach. Now, as one of our Senior Trainers, he helps with the education of personal trainers across the company.

My training is centred around nailing the basics of strength training. I focus on good quality execution and performance of compound lifts, squats, deadlifts, presses and pulls to drive changes in body composition.

“What a legend of a PT. Matt takes time the to make a program that is right for me. Extremely knowledgeable and always happy to explain the what, the how, and, most importantly, the why when it comes to the program. Highly recommend him to anyone. His training hasn’t only developed the right gains but has improved my overall well-being. P.S. Don’t be intimidated by his monster quads.”


“Matt is a top notch coach. I’m always impressed by his depth of knowledge in anatomy and biomechanics. He helped rehab me through 9 months of shoulder bursitis and later a dislocated elbow. I always feel like I’m in safe hands and happy to say that I’m pain-free and I’m the strongest I’ve ever been. Matt’s got a great sense of humour and will keep you motivated without you ever feeling pressured. Every program he’s ever put me on is highly specific to my needs. Very grateful for all the support he’s given me over the years.”


“I have had a few trainers over the last 10 years in Sydney and without any hesitation, Matt takes the number one spot for getting results in a way that is enjoyable. His scientific approach to fitness combined with the ability to explain it in layman’s terms whilst also being one of the most sincere and genuine guys I know, he has a winning recipe – something the fitness industry needs. I’m looking forward to building a continuous relationship with him into the future.”


“I started working with Matt after he was recommended by another trainer I work with. I specifically have issues with dislocating shoulders. He has had the biggest impact on preventing further dislocations. Bigger impact than the surgery I had. 11/10 would recommend him for anyone with specific goals or recovering from an injury.”
