“I had a hip reconstruction and after completing my rehab with a
Physiotherapist I wanted to get back to the 2 times a week cardio gym
classes I’d been doing before my hip pain became too much.
My physio explained that I really needed to build up some muscles
around my joints to support them and help prevent further issues.
I was referred to Matt by my Physio as someone trustworthy to work
around all my long term injuries (limited ankle mobility due to breaking
it previously, hip reco, 2 shoulder dislocations, 2 bulging discs in my
lower back, and others!).
Initially I just wanted to get stronger to support my joints, but
Matt inspired me from our very first chat and hit me with some big
questions about what I wanted out of life.
He made me start to think about what was really holding me back, which was my self esteem and confidence about my body.
I was in my mid 40’s and not only thought my best body days were
years gone, but also that life was just going to get slower from here on
due to my injuries holding me back. I’m an ageing mum and that’s just
the way it’s supposed to be!
But the big question for me was “What would it feel like to be in the best shape of your life?”
1 year on and I was posing in front of a photographer wearing a bikini and officially in the best shape of my life!”
