Testimonials

What can you expect from Fitness By Design...
 I am very pleased with how Matt has worked with me .  I feel stronger and my back problems are much diminished because of the strengthening of my core.  I also appreciate that I don't have to worry about how many reps or which machines to choose. I trust Matt to offer me exercises which will not hurt my back and yet have variety.  We don't do the same routine every session.  The class passes quickly and  I actually enjoy working out!  Thanks to Matt I feel healthier and stronger, which is encouraging when you are in your 50's. It's never too late to start working out! Joyce, Russell


I began training with Matt in Feb of 2014 with the goal of increasing my overall muscle mass, improve my flexibility, strength, agility and quickness to enable me to perform at the highest level possible for my upcoming Hockey Junior A Evaluation Camp.  Matt and I discussed my goals and he helped me design an aggressive program to meet my goals. With his personalized approach to my training and lifestyle, both inside and outside of the gym, I was able to add on 3 kilos of pure muscle mass, while increasing my strength and flexibility levels. I am now in better shape mentally and physically and ready for my Evaluation Camp.
What makes Matt different from other trainers is his ability to truly tailor your program to your goals and he is there every step of the way to ensure you reach them.  Thank you for everything Fitness By Design! Seb, Embrun

My husband and I have tried doing the "gym" thing and it didn't work for us, it was expensive and we really had no way of knowing what exercises to do in order to get the results we wanted and the cost of a personal trainer was insane. We were happy to find Matt, as we were able to have a personal trainer to make an exercise program for both of us that catered to our personal goals, ability and fit into our busy schedules. It also gave us the opportunity to work out together with Matt being able to make sure we were doing the exercises properly, and the cost was phenomenal!.  My husband really enjoyed that Matt was able to motivate him to do more then he thought he could and it helped me with my confidence.  We are extremely happy with Matt and recommend him to anyone who is interested in getting in shape. We are excited to do his group exercise classes now that we have built a good foundation.   Shannon and Mats, Winchester

My daughter and I were looking for something active to do together. We started seeing Matt at Fitness by Design 4 months ago. The group sessions are fun and challenging. Every week there is a different variety of workouts. Matt is a great motivator and gets involved with your nutrition and everyday physical activity. Thanks to Matt at Fitness by Design, my daughter and I love how our bodies have increased in strong, lean muscles. - Josee and Gabrielle, Embrun

I've loved the tailored workouts that have helped me reach my health goals. Matt has been able to push me past my perceived limitations to get the results I wanted. I love that we set goals and that he encourages me to reach them. I've lost unwanted pounds and toned the muscles in my problem areas. My diet and exercise questions were always answered promptly, honestly and professionally. Matt's choices of exercises were challenging and motivating. I love the results!  Dianne, Russell

At first when I decided to get in shape I did not know how to go about it. I expected that working with a personal trainer might be a good place to start. Matt has an Intro to Personal training program and that is what I chose to do. After meeting Matt for an initial fitness assessment I knew that this was a good decision. I started to train with Matt a month ago and quickly found him to be an excellent trainer. He truly cares about your personal well-being and is very supportive and motivating. Matt’s style and variety of exercises are exceptional. He customizes the training to fit my personal goals. I can honestly say I look forward to training with Matt every week. Francine, Metcalfe

I am enjoying my time as a participant in Fitness By Design’s program development and online coaching program. Matt provides me with an individualized exercise program and we’ve met on two separate occasions to discuss technique, form, and objectives. Matt and I regularly correspond through email and he is always available to respond to my questions. I am enjoying the flexibility of the program and already feel improvements in my back, shoulders and arms.  I look forward to the next phase! Chris, Russell

A couple months ago I contacted Matt from Fitness by Design since I wanted to get rid of some stubborn pounds, reshape my body and learn how to properly strength train. I had been doing lots of cardio activity which kept the weight off but did not tone my body as much as I wanted. I had my first meeting with Matt to discuss my goals; he was very professional, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. Matt quickly designed a program just for me and right away I started doing one-on-one training. Every time I show up for personal training, he is ready, organised and wastes no time at all.  I also started attending his group training sessions twice a week. I love these sessions as they are always different, fun and I even made new friends. Matt also ensures everyone uses the right form and technique for all movements. I have noticed great results after 2 months of training and I’m excited to see what the next couple of months will bring. My thighs have  slimmed down, my glutes are stronger, my arms are getting toned and my stomach if flatter. Other benefits I have experienced are: feeling stronger, improved self-esteem and learning proper technique. I would highly recommend Fitness by Design to anyone wanting to achieve results in a healthy and safe way. Matt has a great attitude and is truly passionate about helping people reach their personal fitness goals. Give it a try! Steph, Russell

As a disabled person, I have very specific needs when it comes to exercise. Matt really listens and designs my exercise program based on my abilities. He focusses on what I can do rather than what I cannot. He acknowledges that we know our bodies best and that we know what works for us and what does not. I always feel great after my workout sessions! Fitness By Design is a great and economical choice. Erica, Russell
