Who is Matthew?

Hi. My name is Matthew. I am married to Sophie and have a son called Oliver.  I grew up obsessed with football – a passion i got from my dad. As a young child, I was very active in sports. My happy childhood and teenage years were shaped by sports, and my enthusiasm for football led me to have trails for Doncaster and Barnsley and have played semi-professionally for Selby Town.

Once we had Oliver, we moved to Sherburn in Elmet where i do some of my Sports massage from home. For the past 3 years now, I have been calling this town home and continue to love it. In fact, I don’t think I will ever want to move away from here.

After having successfully completed my university studies, I have worked in various gyms in York. These include Courtneys gym, David Lloyd Leisure and the Mount School.  The later is where i now do my personal training at the moment.  I enjoy working with individuals, and want to cater to each person as much as possible.
 
 As well as the personal training i also qualified as a sports massage therapist and a Herbalife distributor.  The three combined give the perfect combination to improve individuals lifestyles.
 
For the past twelve years now, I have been working in the health and fitness indusrty. I enjoy every minute of it and now i am self employed i enjoy the freedom of being my own boss. I can already look back on many happy hours during which I was able to help my clients reach the goals they had set for themselves.
