I would highly recommend Matt Sutherland as a fitness trainer. He is totally committed to his clients. Extremely knowledgeable on physiology and exercise regimes. I particularly like his attention to correct technique and breathing. Matt's classes are diverse and well run but still have an element of fun and inclusion. I have had no trouble commiting to 4/5 classes a week for the last 4 years. Kathy.

I have known Matt for over a year now and I can highly recommend him as an exercise professional. Matt genuinely cares for his clients and the community he serves and is passionate about making a difference. Matt has the perfect balance of empathy, care, and honesty which is rare in the coaching realm. He is not afraid to speak the truth even if he knows that may not be what the client wants to hear, he is a true coach and not a cheerleader. If I were looking for a trainer I would not hesitate in reaching out to Matt and getting his expert advice and leadership. If you want the best results you need to work with the best coach, Matt is that coach!
