About Matt Haynes
I qualified as a REPS Personal Trainer in 2010 and since then have delivered training programmes for both individuals and small groups from a variety of health and fitness backgrounds. As my interests in the field of health and fitness grew, I became qualified in both level 3 Sports Massage (Soft Tissue Therapy) and level 4 Sports Massage Therapy. Since qualifying, I have gained massage experience working with clients who want to maintain their current level of health and fitness, medical conditions and those who have specific injuries.
I am a bit of a fitness fanatic and have been running for over 15 years. I often have a sports massage because it helps me to prevent injury, it allows me to continue training hard and it keeps me light on my feet. I am disciplined with training and I enjoy trying to beat my previous weeks time which I upload on social media with a map to show my route. I like competing in the local 10k's and half marathon running events. I am keen to utilise our beautiful location by exercising outside rather than in a busy and overcrowded gym.
I have an abundance of experience working with children and young people of all ages (5 to 18 years), and I'm qualified as a level 3 Teaching Assistant and level 3 Special Needs Teaching Assistant. I've worked at a whole host of schools across the county, specialising in Physical Education and BESD (Behavioural, Emotional and Social Difficulties). Therefore, whether you have a child you would like to encourage to try different sports, or are a teen yourself who would like some advice or guidance on how to increase your fitness, I have the expertise required to deliver personalised and unique sessions for you based on your needs.
