Meet Matt



Owner/ Trainer

“Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing.” - Ron Swanson.


The other half of the dream team, Matt left working as an arborist and joined up with AJ in 2015 to establish Strength Nation Gym. Prior to this, Matt also had a stint personal training in Melbourne. But after working through the initial hard yard years at Strength Nation, Matt now helps oversee the business, assist our trainers and take the occasional PT session and Class.


Recently becoming a father, Matt now spends his free time with wife Alex, his son Cooper and original fur babies - Zeus and Nala. He also fits in training 5-6 times a week to keep up his title of “8th Fittest Man in NZ” from 2022!


What motivates Matt daily?

“Progress. What keeps me motivated is to always progress, whether that’s business, exercise or even just being a better family man. Trying to improve and be better each day is what keeps me going.”
