Qualifications: Bsc Sport Science & Business Studies, Brunel University.

Sport and exercise has always played a big part in my life. As a youngster I enjoyed taking part in football, rugby, skiing and tennis. I attended Brunel university and studied sports science where I took up boxing and was coached by Audley Harrison, Olympic Gold medalist. I went on to win a British Universities title. In 2000 I reached the summit of Kilimanjaro. I’ve participated in the world championships for Hobie Cats (sailing) held in Dubai, run marathons, rowed a marathon, and finished top 20 in the original tough guy event. Having set up my own personal training business and worked out of other peoples gyms I was delighted to become owner of Hockley Gym in 2010.

I am passionate about exercise and have been helping clients achieve results for nearly 20 years! I believe that fitting physical activity into your daily routine is vital to maintain health and well being and that by setting targets and achievable goals motivation can be maintained. I am not about the latest fad diet or trend but more about making changes that will last.

Your commitment along with my knowledge and guidance will motivate you towards results, my wealth of experience will ensure programs are tailored specifically to your needs. Sessions are planned to ensure they are both challenging and progressive. I recommend two to three sessions of personal training a week and will work on all areas of fitness development, to ensure that you are leaner, stronger, flexible and balanced.

+ About Matthew

Sport has always been a part of me. Originally from a rugby background, I first started resistance training when I was 15 to help with recovery after a serious shoulder injury. After leaving school I decided to pursue my passion for training and nutrition and since starting at Hockley Gym I've gained numerous training qualifications and have not looked back. Converting a passion into a career is what I think everybody strives for and I’m lucky enough to be doing exactly that. Training is a therapy for me, an outlet, and I feel privileged to be able to give and get back so much from something that started out as a hobby.

At the beginning of the 2015 I set myself a goal to compete in a fitness competition. I wanted to set a challenge that I knew would not be easy and would push me to my mental and physical limits. It's these kind of training and nutrition specific goals that I enjoy, giving a purpose to each training session and every meal. After ten months of dedicated and targeted training I went on stage at the Miami Pro Championships with my best ever physique. The journey gave me a vast amount of experience and knowledge about myself and how the human body reacts to different training and dietary methods. This next year is going to be a developmental year to grow my knowledge and experience within the fitness industry, enabling me to propel my clients even further to achieve their goals!

+ About Jo

Qualifications: CYQ Level 3 Personal Trainer. CYQ Level 2 Circuit Training. CYQ Level 2 Gym Instructor.

The first time I stepped into a gym was 8 years ago and I haven’t looked back since.

I wasn’t happy with myself for a long time after having my children, I was unfit, hated my appearance and had low self esteem. I decided to take action and joined a gym. With a lot of hard work and determination it wasn’t long before I started to see changes in my body, my health and more importantly my confidence.

I wanted so much to use my experiences to help others and so I took my qualifications to become a Personal Trainer. Whatever your goals may be, losing weight, toning up, improving fitness levels or gaining strength I will motivate you. I believe if you put 100% effort into both training and nutrition you will achieve your goals.

I also run Circuit Training classes here at Hockley Gym on a Monday evening, which is open to people of all fitness levels and offer an effective fun group workout.
