HAVE YOU PRIORITISED YOUR BUSINESS ABOVE YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS FOR TOO LONG?
- Feeling frustrated by a lack of direction when it comes to improving the way you look, feel and perform?
- Have you prioritised your career and business, while your health and fitness has suffered?
- Feel like you need to set an example to your clients, family and others around you and lead from the front?
- Frustrated by second-guessing your own training and doing the same familiar things, without seeing progress?
- Feeling inauthentic as your daily habits and actions aren't aligned with what you teach to clients?
- Are you battling against low energy, poor sleep, low libido and nagging aches and pains?
DISCOVER YOUR PATHWAY TO AN OPTIMISED YOU...
Integrated Performance Coaching™ takes a precision, individualised approach to optimising all aspects of your health and performance alongside creating a high-performance environment to help you thrive in all aspects of your health, performance and business...
WHAT'S THE TRAJECTORY OF YOUR CURRENT HABITS?
If you’re feeling like you’ve plateaued in your training, that you’re putting lots IN but not seeing the results you want and feel like you’re capable of more - then it’s time for a different approach.
What most people do when they stop progressing is seek out ANOTHER generic training template, redesign their own training, going back to the same old things - all the while while progress stays stalled. They start to pick up little aches and pains, that shoulder ache gets worse, back pain creeps in and they struggle to recover between training sessions.
Imagine for a moment if all aspects of your training, movement, recovery, nutrition and more were 100% aligned specifically to YOU and YOUR goals? Outsourced to a trusted advisor who will handle it all for you. Sounds good right? Every single rep of every training session, every meal, every rest day, all moving you closer towards your fitness and performance goals
Don’t let yourself back on that frustrating hamster wheel of inconsistent, generic training and seeing little/no progress, make the most of the time you invest in your training and learn along the way.
You were meant for more.
MEET YOUR COACH
FOUNDER & HEAD COACH
I work one on one with coaches, personal trainers & gym owners around the world who want to refocus on their own training and learn through the process.
It’s just plain wrong that so many fitness professionals end up sabotaging their own health and fitness in order to serve their clients and grow their business.
It’s highly likely that you know what you need to do, but just lack the guidance, strategy and accountability to get it done.
Coaches need coaches.
But more than that, you need a coach that cares about results but most importantly cares about you. I'm invested in the goals and successes of the clients I work with (you can read some of their stories below).
Over the past decade I’ve been lucky to work with athletes from a broad spectrum, from competitors at the CrossFit Games®, to operators in special forces units from various countries, to stunt performers, world-class BJJ players, high-level executives and everyone in between.
I've dedicated the past decade of my life to being 'in the trenches' coaching people, I’ve travelled the world presenting seminars and taking education courses and now provide mentorship and consultancy to other coaches and gyms around the world.
I know and understand the challenges that fitness professionals face when it comes to their own fitness, nutrition, performance and work/life balance and would love to help you become an Optimised Coach™

“Matt cares about you as an individual, he is dedicated to bringing the best out of each client he works with”
Before working with Matt I lacked a purpose behind my training, my ability to grow and push my limits beyond what I used to think I can, and clarity of vision and values.
I’d experimented with different templated programs and worked with other coaches in the past, but working with Matt made my training enjoyable again. With him it’s about pushing boundaries, putting lots of effort and still having fun doing it.
If you get the opportunity to work with Matt don't miss it! He treats his clients as human first, athletes second. He cares about you as a whole individual, he is dedicated to bringing the best out of each client he works with.

"It's not just the programming and the workouts, it's everything else around it"
When I started online coaching with Integrated Performance, we worked together on all the foundations, explored what worked, what didn’t work and with Matt's help, we’ve gradually rebuilt ‘me’. He made sure the basics were solid, nutrition, hydration, sleep, sufficient strength, helping me stay injury-free and step by step closer to my goals.
Without him, I would definitely not be where I am today and I owe him the progress I made and am still making. It’s not just the programming and the workouts. It’s everything around it. Achieving high-performance in sport is no longer about putting a series of exercises together, it’s science... it’s about proper recovery, the right nutrition and hydration, it’s about tracking results and performance indicators for health.
Matt incorporates all that into his coaching.
If you’re on the fence about working with Matt I’d say go for it... no questions asked. Matt is an attentive coach, he listens. He is honest and is not someone who you promises you unrealistic results. He aligns your programme with your goals, keeps track of your results. He checks in with you regularly to make sure you stay on track
Peter // Coach & Business Owner
As a coach myself, it's always good to talk and discuss things with someone more experienced in that area
From my previous experiences being coached, either the intent of the workouts was missing, and they were looking more like something done quickly with not much attention put in (or simply like a template), or what I was looking from my workouts wasn't met, and I didn't have a good experience.
Since working with Integrated Performance all of that has changed, I know the intent, and I can see the individualisation based on what I previously did, to ensure good progression and enjoyment of the process in the same time!
I feel better than I used to in training and enjoy the process, I'm feeling much relaxed in comparison to before
The best thing by far is the education I am getting from our chats. As a coach myself, always good to talk and discuss things with someone more experienced in that area, learn something and take on board some good tips.
I would definitely recommend for someone serious about their goals, no matter process or outcome driven, it's a win in both cases
Kristian // Fitness Coach
“Online coaching with Matt has helped me to improve in every area”
Before working with Matt, I was following online templated programs and competing, but was never really focusing on what I needed as a Masters Athlete. I was overloading and experiencing some shoulder issues, being a gym owner and trying to be an athlete was making consistency in my training an issue.
Working with Matt has helped me to improve in every area. We focused on fixing up my injuries, getting stronger, training is fun and has focused on my weaknesses and what I needed. We’ve focused on prehab and rehab work, stress management, sleep, recovery and how much if effects the outcome of my training - my lifestyle has improved massively.
When I first started with Matt it was about improving as an athlete, but in the process I learned more as a coach and he inspired me to learn more and look at things a different way. Education become more of a focus than competing, he made me a better and healthier athlete, a better coach and he became my mentor.
Murat // Coaching & Gym Owner
"Although I work remotely with Matt, it feels like he's right there every step of the way"
I started working with Integrated Performance after experiencing plateaus and frustration in my training. Matt provides me with the perfect balance of support, challenge, guidance and trust - all the things you need in a great coach. Matt gets to understand his clients individually and he listens and creates a training programme built on not just physical ability but personality and mental strength/factors that may impact training.
Although I work remotely with Matt it feels like he’s right there with me, every step of the way, every win, every fail, bad day and good day. He’s trustworthy, knowledgeable and he will take the time to understand you and your needs-you are an individual to him; not one amongst many other athletes.

"I've learned strategies to manage stress and now have a deeper understanding of how what I'm doing in the gym connects to my everyday life."
Before working with Integrated Performance I was struggling to manage stress and find fulfilment in my training, I'd previously trained in CrossFit and worked with another remote coaching organisation.
I've learned strategies to manage stress and now have a deeper understanding of how what I'm doing in the gym connects to my everyday life. The best thing about it is Matt's attention to detail and his ability to provide a truly individualized experience. You can tell he really cares about helping each individual client achieve their health and fitness goals and I'm now moving pain free.
I would recommend definitely working with Matt/Integrated Performance. Matt takes the time to get to know you and works with you to design a training/nutrition/lifestyle plan that helps you achieve your health and fitness goals.
Gretchen // Coach
"I could focus my attention on other things and not have to worry about trying to figure out how to get out of pain"
Before working with Integrated performance I had shoulder pain and some pain in my groin area as well. I could not figure out how to work around it or resolve the pain.
I tried to do what I know with my coaching knowledge but once that didn't work I had a consult with a doctor and they suggested physical therapy.
Before I couldn't even squat 50% of my 1RM back squat without pain but in a few short weeks I was squat pain free with 70% of my 1RM. Before I was in pain even when I wasn't working out but now the pain is gone. As a coach I learned a ton working with integrated performance such as different training strategies and progressions as well as layouts for program design.
Working with Integrated Performance is well worth it. Matt is a great coach and human. He is well equipped to help you with whatever issue that you may be having. I would 100% recommend working with Integrated Performance to anyone out there looking for a coach.

“The biggest value I've have got from being coached has been the support and information on how how to treat the 22hours a day I spend outside the gym”
Since working with Matt I’ve seen improvements across the board in training and an entire lifestyle shift. Although my results with training were, and to some extent, still are, the main driver to having a coach, the biggest value I have got from being coached by Matt has been the support and information on how to treat the 22hours a day I spend outside the gym.
I’ve already recommended Matt to numerous people who have taken the plunge and loved it. If training is a priority then you need someone who knows what they’re going. Matt’s breadth and depth of knowledge are super impressive.
Helen // CrossFit Coach & Personal Trainer
“I cannot stress enough how nice it is to be on the receiving end of professional coaching”
Before working with Matt, I'd been suffering from lower back compression pains, neck pain and poor hip mobility for the last year. It kept me from doing the things I love, and I lost my motivation to train for the first time in 10+ years.
I'm now able to train regularly in the gym and on the mats 3-4 days per week pain-free. I'd definitely recommend working with Matt, I'm a coach and cannot stress enough how nice it is to be on the receiving end of professional coaching.

When my not-so-remote client @chriscummins7 and I started working together, he'd been in chronic pain with an ongoing wrist/elbow issue for a LONG time. After discussing his training and watching him move we traced it back to restriction in shoulder movement caused by an injury as a child. — Pain is a complex issue and requires a multi-faceted approach to address it. Pain is an OUTPUT from the brain - not an input from the body. — We've taken the past few months to keep him working in pain-free ranges whilst implementing a number of individualised strategies to calm his nervous system alongside optimising sleep, nutrition, recovery and some underlying gut issues. — During this time we haven't snatched once. Here he is hitting his previous PR at the first attempt and narrowly missing 100kg/220# (it's coming). And MOST importantly - this was pain-free. — #TEACHlearnmoveCREATE #iamopex @opexfitness

When we started working together, Rich was owner/operator of a CrossFit gym and previously a competitive CrossFit athlete - but he realised that he needed the coaching, accountability and support of a coach. In other words, Rich knows what he’s doing when it comes to nutrition & fitness…but he acknowledged that getting outside support is often the best answer! At the time he scheduled a call with me in July last year, Rich was struggling with low energy, getting pain playing tennis & volleyball and going through a stressful time at work. During our call together we dug into all areas of his health, training and performance to create a plan to get him out of pain and back to doing what he loves. Here he is just 7 months later, training pain-free and hitting an easy hang power clean for 275lb/125kg. Rich is testament to what can be achieved with hard work, consistency and a well-executed plan. Onwards 👊 #integratedperformance

Online Performance Coaching client @coach_jenz crushing a 6-rep 100kg/220lb Zercher Split Squat. As a former pro Rugby player, busy coach and family man his training NEEDS to be specific to meet those unique demands and keep him able to perform at a high level in all that he does. Over the past few weeks of training we’ve been chasing a few specific improvements in training. - Restoration of movement variability - Get him OWNING the sagittal plane (abs & hamstrings FTW!) - Improving ribcage and respiratory mechanics Attacking these three areas allows us to establish some quick wins AND lays the foundation for future pain-free training down the road. This isn’t done through masses of lying on the ground, rolling around on a foam roller, or ‘rehab’ style training that often leaves people feeling fragile. He’s lifting heavy weights, throwing shit around and having fun WHILE moving systematically towards his goals. Are you a coach/trainer/gym owner who feels like you’ve hit a wall with your training? DM me the word ‘coaching’ and lets get you back on track 🚀 #integratedperformance

Here's remote client @mikeleept hitting an 85kg/190lb high hang snatch after coming back from a broken back, chronic shoulder pain and osteitis pubis. - To facilitate adaptation we must create the right environment for it happen. This covers everything from nutrition, sleep, supplementation, training, lowering inflammatory load, lowering perception of pain, stress management, AND digging deeper investigating 'under the hood' with lab work. - Anything less and you're leaving your health and performance to chance and guesswork. - #earntheright #iamopex #teachlearnmovecreate #olympicweightlifting #functionalfitness

Got hops? Working on dynamic hip extension pays off. Here's remote client @gabycollat hitting a 44" kneeling to box jump and a 103kg/227lb Snatch PR at 70kg/155lb bodyweight. - Working on sleep, nutrition and everything outside the gym to allow adaptation to happen is key to long-term progression. - #earntheright #teachlearnmovecreate #iamopex
