Matt is the owner and clinical director of a busy multi-disciplinary allied health practice in Port Macquarie NSW Australia and is pursuing his passion to help back pain sufferers with methods he has developed over the past twenty two years in his professional career.
Matt's career started as a personal trainer in London, successfully training and helping a number of notable clients reach their fitness goals. He continued to study and then practice Sports Therapy alongside his personal training, the two qualifications combining to provide advanced treatment and training levels for his clients. At the same time, Matt also gained a post grad teaching qualification and supported his studies by teaching, assessing and verifying health and fitness courses around the UK, rubbing shoulders with an extensive number of renowned professionals, gaining valuable insights and experience in his career fields. Not the type to stand still, Matt progressed to study Osteopathy to further his professional knowledge and expertise where he worked with some of the UK's most experienced professionals in the business. More recently, Matt has now gained a qualification in Nutrition to further increase his knowledge in this important area.
Matt returned to Australia in 2010 with his wonderful wife Elaine, and two exceptional (now adult) children who are pursuing and excelling in their chosen careers.
Having personally suffered with a severe back injury himself, Matt, now over 50, has overcome this by utilising the methods he has developed for over twenty years. As a result, he has a passion to provide others with the same toolbox of methods, so they too can move with confidence and get back to doing the things they love to do.
In the capacity as a fitness professional, with his extensive experience in this area, Matt now provides this online program that will help change back pain sufferer's lives for the better.
Matt is a registered Osteopath in Australia and in the UK and a member of Osteopathy Australia. He is a qualified Nutritionist and he is a member of AusActive in Australia and CIMSPA in the UK (both professional fitness associations).
