Client testimonials

"The advice and tips that Matt provided me with during our mentoring sessions have helped me move into the world of corporate health. I found the sessions to be educational, practical and very useful. I would recommend mentoring with Matt to anyone who wants to get ahead in the health field.

Yasmina Hage, Accredited Practicing Dietitian & Founder of Body Temple Health & Weight Loss Clinic

"Matt has a way of taking your dreams out of the clouds and getting you into action mode. Each session I felt more clear about what steps were necessary to get to the end result. Matt kept me thinking realistically but at the same time helped me explore some avenues I had not thought possible for me. I had the idea and the resources but didnt know where to start.

- Duncan Hunter, Personal Trainer & Student Dietitian

"Since making the commitment to start a mentoring program with Matt I have realized that it has been one of the best investments I have made. I had little idea that it would have such a profound effect on my skills as a personal trainer. Prior to using the SmartShape approach and resources I often doubted my ability to work with clients in the weight loss area and often allowed them to convince that they had metabolic disorders! Now I know that if a client is not having success with weight loss it's not my coaching ability or lack of resources. Now as the employer of seven personal trainers we have adopted the SmartShape concept and philosophy and as such all the trainers have participated in Matt's workshops.

Amanda Coombe, Founder of Personal Best Fitness, Tasmania's leading Personal Training facility.
