Matty Bantin

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have always been interested in exercise and fitness, playing a wide variety of sports and taking great pride in keeping my knowledge up to date and relevant. Having a great passion for encouraging people to become more confident in the gym allows me to help them become the best version of themselves whilst working towards their own personal goals. Hitting a brick wall myself on occasions with my own training, I understand the importance of making sessions enjoyable whilst also being challenging in order for you to progress on to becoming an overall better version of you.

Matt Dodd

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I’ve played many sports growing up and for the past 7 + years I have trained in the gym. I had always dreamed of becoming a personal trainer and after qualifying I haven’t looked back! Having been overweight, had injuries and body confidence issues, I understand how hard it is getting to the gym and making a change can be. I take a fun approach to training while setting achievable goals and making yourself feel great about your body.

My qualifications

  • Level 3

What my Clients say:

“Having not exercised for years I felt very nervous and self-conscious about entering the gym environment again, Matt really put me at ease with his professional and caring manner. He went through every exercise step by step and always reinforced the reason of why we are doing them. Matt has really taught me to believe in myself and that I can do anything if I put my mind to it!”

  • Lacking in focus and motivation? I have unique ideas to ensure your sessions are interesting and challenging

My qualifications

  • Level 3

What my Clients say:

"From the first consult Joe has been focused on helping me deliver on my goals of fat loss, functional athletic performance and aesthetic muscle building. Having never stepped into a gym in my life, Joe worked through various exercises with me, finding ones I responded to well, and built a program that I could both enjoy and reap rewards from. He routinely checks in with me on goal progress and whether I'm happy with the program outside of my PT sessions. I feel that Joe is as committed to my goals as I am, and I'm confident I can reach them with the guidance and support he provides."

My qualifications

  • Level 3

What my Clients say:

Raph is an excellent personal trainer, he helped me feel at ease in the gym and brought out my confidence and helped me believe I can achieve my goals. He did this by motivating me to have a can-do attitude and reminding me that slow progress is better than no progress. He took his time whilst explaining the exercises and made sure I was comfortable with every movement during the sessions. In addition to this, he explained the purpose of each exercise and the benefits I gain from doing the specific movements. I am truly grateful for the service in which he provides ."

Nick Quinn

Fitness Manager

How can I help you improve your health?

I have been in the Fitness Wellbeing Industry for 8 years and loved every moment of it. I had a sports background and studied Sports Science. I love being challenged in any way possible, whether that was to be faster, stronger, lose weight or even gain weight. By being out of your comfort zone you can achieve and learn so much about yourself and have that confidence to go with it.

My qualifications

  • Level 3

What my Clients say:

"Nick is a fantastic trainer. I was nervous in the gym and wasn't sure how or what to do at the start, I had a programme with Nick and since then I started Personal Training with him. Since then, I have gained confidence not only in the gym but in myself, I'm stronger and fitter than ever before. He has taught me the importance of resistance training and how that helps me to stay strong, toned and healthy. He is motivational and every session is a challenge. I can't thank him enough."

Benjamin Sotiris

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

Since starting as a Personal Trainer in 2012 and having worked with a wide range of clients, with a variety of goals, I have found that:

  • the development of a strong core using dynamic exercises helps my clients achieve success, regardless of their goals
  • training should be enjoyable and not seen as a chore
  • a lot of us work in boxes, so shouldn’t train in them
  • variety is key to long term success and sustainability

What my Clients say:

“Ben is exceptional! Rather than provide generic training (as I have previously experienced) he designed training programmes that were tailored to my requirements. He regularly varied them so as to ensure a physical balance and maintain my interest, for the past four and a half years. He has a fantastic personality, I looked forward to my sessions as much for his company as the exercise regime. I would have no hesitation in enthusiastically recommending Ben.”  – Philip
