Meet Matt

matt-g-main

Fitness and health have been a huge part of my life since I was a youngster and I owe that to my parents who gave me opportunities to fulfil childhood sporting dreams.

I started playing out playing football, swimming, tennis and surf lifesaving but a choice was to be made as to which sport I wanted to seriously pursue (swimming was the winner). Why? I am a Pieces and us fish love water.

Whilst swimming I began gym training and it was here where I fell in love with building my strength and challenging myself in workouts.

Over the past several years whilst working at various schools and sites for children and adults with a vast range of disabilities I always still have had a love for fitness, which has now taken me down the road of CrossFit.

I have always loved helping people, and seeing others reach their health and fitness goals.
