All of my training is based around foundations of strength and conditioning. I put a heavy emphasis on improving structural balance and movement to ensure that my clients stay injury free and have a great foundation before moving towards increase strength in major lifts.
My fitness philosophy
To always be moving forward and progressing in some aspect of training. Whether that be doing more weights, more reps, more sessions or just improving a movement.

"Training with and under Matt at USC has been the most beneficial thing for myself in all aspects of life. I've learnt countless amount of concepts and principles, and have grown as a person both physically and mentally from this. I still look to him for guidance, and he's willing to help wherever he can. I've made a life long friend from this journey and owe a lot to the countless amount of hours he's put in, just like he does for all of his clients. USC is perfect anyone looking for a change in life, and is accepting to all types of people!"

"Thank you to Matt at USC I am the leanest, fittest, strongest and healthiest I have been in my whole life and I feel great. Has it happened without dedication, commitment and damn hard work? NO, but the effort is worth it. I am worth it! We also have a bit of fun and everyone offers each other support and encouragement."
"I have been training with Matt for 18 months, have missed some weeks due to work and life. With his great help I have reduced my body weight from 91kg to 80kg in a matter of 10 weeks, and can now easily do chin ups and push ups. If you are not happy with how your body looks Matt will help you change it. Matt's focus is on getting the technique right so you can get maximum benefit from what you are doing. I HIGHLY recommend Matt if you want to get fit and reduce body fat."
"I have been privileged to play and represent Australia and NSW in Rugby Union, for the past 10 or so years. Therefore, I have seen and been apart of numerous strength and conditioning programs and coaches. I've had the opportunity to train with Matt at the USC and observe his dealings with clients-nothing but class. He has an ability to understand his clients needs and finds ways to achieve their goals. Matt's communication skills are key in building relationships with clients, thus getting the best out of the individual. Matt approaches fitness goals of clients through holistic strength and conditioning programs. The programs are individually designed and consulted with his clients, before embarking on their training, making sure that both the client and Matt are working towards a common fitness goal."
