Eye of the Tiger Philosophy
If you are looking to make changes in your health and fitness or you need guidance on techniques, Eye of the Tiger is the personal trainer to help you reach your goals.
Personal Trainer Central Coast
Every body is different. So every program is uniquely tailored to the individual’s body, posture as well as their goals. There are no templated workouts here.
A personal trainer should educate their clients on good exercise technique, form as well as explaining how the exercises are going to help you towards your fitness goals. Not only that, but the Personal Trainer themselves must also always be learning and growing, being open to new techniques and research.
We start where you are, our baseline. Then we perform testing regularly to ensure we are making progress towards your goals.
See how we do things
Trust the process,
don't rush the process
When we meet, in my PT studio in Bateau Bay, I’ll do a postural assessment which will give me a good indication of how your body holds itself naturally and if there are things we need to strengthen or stretch.
We will also do some movement screening so I can see your natural movements on some of the exercises, which may influence what your fitness program includes. We will also do some body composition testing so we have a baseline to work with and measure success against.

What they are saying
Amazing experience. I would highly recommend Matt if you are looking for a personal trainer. If you are just starting your fitness journey like me or seeking to up your game, this is the place to go. Large home gym with everything you need in a quiet, private cul-de-sac. Matt is very friendly and relatable, focused, knowledgeable, asks a lot of questions, knows exactly what you can and can't do and gives you homework that you will enjoy. You will get fit and learn a lot about health and nutrition along the way.
Great advice, good atmosphere, judgement free zone where you can feel comfortable and smash your goals
Matt is an excellent personal trainer. He is enthusiastic, friendly and a great motivater. He took the time to listen to me and my goals and was able to personalise a plan a great plan. Each session was tough yet Matt always found a way to push me to finish. I have seen cheaper options but Matt is worth every cent in my opinion, as you can see that he genuinely cares about you and your health. Couldnt recommend Matt highly enough.
Matt is an incredible PT, he is full of knowledge and provides great value! He helped me through my health journey and I will forever recommend him.
I trained with Matt for a year. Matt’s knowledge and advice regarding not just fitness but also nutrition is superior. He has a very calm manner and works with you in a very calm non judgmental way that makes you want to achieve. Matt caters for all ages and sizes and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
Matt is very knowledgeable and will push you to improve yourself in every way. If you’re looking for a great personal trainer look no further!
Matt is one of the best trainers I have met. Such a friendly, positive, and dedicated trainer that strives to making sure all of his clients are on the right path to their goals. I am a student doing my practicum with Matt and over these past couple of months, working alongside him I have learned so much from his expertise in the fitness industry. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to get you on the right track for your fitness journey.
My son Mason really enjoys training with coach Matt, when we found out Matt was running his first speed & agility camp, we didn’t think twice. Mason loved the drills that Matt has set for the program, he makes it fun and also explains it clearly, he really motivates him to push harder. Mason highly recommends this camp for anyone who wants to improve their speed, strength and learn how to move better. Plus it was fun!
My son Khael attended a workshop on gaining speed and agility. His really enjoyed the box jumps and the other exercises he learnt.
Highly recommend Matt! My son had him for agility camp very kind, caring & fantastic with the kids. Each child left with a folder & tailored sheet to help with working on there goals. We definitely can’t wait to get back to more of Matt’s camps! 100% recommend!
Our daughter attended Matts Young Athlete Speed and Agility sessions during the last school holidays and she absolutely loved them. Matt was hugely motivating, and highly skilled. He delivered sessions that were engaging and fun. Our daughter came away with a clear understanding of her current fitness level and she had a plan on how to continue her growth and improvement. She has already signed on for the January sessions.
My daughter Summer attended her first Speed & Agility camp with Matt, he made her feel welcome and gave her continues encouragement throughout session. I highly recommend Matts camps. He is great with the kids, very positive and professional. Summer can't wait to do another camp!
Imogen has been working with Matt for approximately three years. Matt has helped imogen to prepare for her basketball trials, keeping moving and fit in the off season and keeping her focused and strong throughout the season. Matt has not only worked one on one with imogen but has written tailored, goal oriented programs that she is able to use to guide her through workouts in the gym or at school at the Sports College. Not only has Matt helped her achieve her sporting goals but he has also been a fantastic constant support in Imogen’s life while negotiating the teenage years. He has offered advice and guidance and helped look after Imogen’s health and well-being holistically.
Matt is best pt anyone could ever ask for, He is Friendly, kind and truly cares about his clients growth and wellbeing. He is very knowledgeable and will always help you through every bit of your journey like doing a exercise right or eating healthy. I truly believe he is the best and highly recommend him for and type of fitness like for me personally it’s was boxing conditioning. So I definitely would use him as my pt
Eye of the Tiger Fitness & Nutrition has rejuvenated my passion and enjoyment towards strength and conditioning. Matt takes extensive care when personalising my training program to ensure it assists me in achieving my goals. His desire to see me develop and strengthen my mind and body has given me the confidence to persist when things get tough. Eye of the Tiger Fitness & Nutrition has enabled me elevate my basketball game as I've never felt so quick, agile and strong when playing on the court!
High recommend Matt! He was able to create an at home/online program for me using equipment and items I had at home and more importantly a program that fits into my busy lifestyle. He provides a great balance between supporting and challenging me to be at my best and get results. Thanks Matt!
Matt has been fantastic! My two children started training with him towards the end of last year. He listened carefully to their goals and designed a program specific to their needs and personal capabilities. Both kids thoroughly enjoyed their weekly training sessions with Matt and could feel themselves improving whilst having fun. He kept them motivated and enthusiastic to strive towards their goals and with his guidance, support and specifically designed training program they were able to successfully end their season with their goals accomplished. Matt has a great way with the kids and his passion for a healthy lifestyle certainly encouraged them to further embrace these same values. He is calm, kind, focused, professional and committed. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt to anyone seeking personal training services. Thank you Matt for all your efforts and dedication!
Having my two children train with Matt, the complexity of the sessions was always going to be more than the standard PT sessions, it was two siblings training with completely different stages of ability and confidence. It had the potential to be a disaster. However, as testament to Matt’s professionalism and talent as a PT, I saw two children arrive as siblings and transition into two focused and motivated athletes. Matt structured each session to meet the individual needs and strengths of each child with this resulting in a growth of mindset, athletic ability and confidence within themselves. What a lifelong gift Matt has shared with them!
Great place to train!! 🙂
Highly recommend you check out “Eye of the Tiger“ if your looking for a PT! Matt is very knowledgeable, personable and extremely flexible in accommodating sessions to our busy life. We have 17yr old twins and Matt has been working with both to achieve their individual goals with great success. Both started with the online program during Lockdown originally for fitness and strength, with results only after a few weeks. We now do a combination of online and face to face. As their sporting goals change throughout the season, so do their individual programs. The jump program in particular was one both found very rewarding. They enjoy every session and come away feeling stronger and better about themselves - what parent doesn’t want that!
Eye of the Tiger Fitness is a relaxed personal training environment. Matt, the trainer, is knowledgeable and works within your limits. I recommend Eye of the Tiger Fitness to anyone looking for a personal trainer on the Central Coast - Angela B
I have been training with Matt since he started his education to start this adventure he loves. Matt always encourages me to push that little bit hard when he knows I can do it. I love my training so much I started my son training with Matt. Matt is not just a trainer is he compassionate and caring person who will do what he can to help you achieve your goals. I can not recommend Matt more to everyone who wants to start their fitness journey.
Matt is a very knowledgeable trainer who can accommodate your training to suit your lifestyle. He is very personable and goes above and beyond to provide the best personal training regardless of your fitness level, age etc. We would highly recommend working with Matt to achieve your goals
Matt is very supportive and encouraging. He listens to my needs and want me to achieve. Great person all around.👌
Highly recommend Matt from Eye of the Tiger Coaching. Very professional, kind and caring mentor. I’m very happy with my progress so far as Matt always takes the time to listen and encourage me to better myself each week. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead in 2022. Anyone looking for a personal trainer Matt is definitely the person you need on your side. 5/5 stars.
Matt is super professional, attentive and creates a program to suit individual needs. He’s given me the courage to lift heavier than I thought possible 😀
I needed someone to help get me back on track with my training. Knowing what Matt does and all the training he has done himself, I new he was who I needed. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and professional in his approach to individual programs and his extensive information on his social media platforms is fantastic. You can not put a price on your health. The body you have is the only one you have been given, so don’t just trust it to anyone!
Matt is an awesome trainer. He has great system's to keep me on track and is very motivating. He adapts my program whenever I need it and based on my achievements as well as re-assessing my goals as I acheive them. Highly recommended.
Highly recommend Matt and his online PT offerings! He is extremely supportive and there to help you reach your goals.
I hadn’t exercised properly for nearly 2 years, when I was recommended Eye of the Tiger by a good friend. Prior to joining I had only used low Weight dumb bells occasionally, this programme has introduced me to the barbell and heavier weights & I love it! Following Eye of the Tiger’s workout routines gives me clear direction & I’m definitely noticing a change in strength of mindset & body
Matt is a great trainer, he listens and helps me develop goals for myself and then helps me achieve them.
I love working with Matt. He is a great trainer who cares about his clients! Matt regularly checks in with me, provides me great feedback, always tweaks things to suit my needs, is super responsive and is super encouraging. I really enjoy training with him. Thanks Matt!!
I started training with Matt in around March after a broken wrist had put me out of sport since November. Last week I had a realisation - on Wednesday (my PT day) I had to pick my son up from school unwell. In the past I would have used this as the perfect excuse not to train. But today instead I packed him a lunch box, got a cushion and the picnic rug and set him up in the sun on Matt's driveway. He was happy watching my phone as well as what was going on in the gym and I was so happy that I didn't miss my session. He thought the rowing machine 200s looked like "so much fun". The day before I had a spare 20 mins between an appointment and my sons basketball game so instead of sitting on my phone in the car outside the stadium I drove to the Haven, did a quick 1.5km walk and 1 skillion. Woohooo!!! Moving on from those excuses thanks to Matts support and encouragement!! Highly recommended.
Mat is an accomplished PT. He goes beyond just saying do 3 more. He actually assesses your body type and then adapts the exercises to your body type and goals. What was the most impressive thing was the programme constructed based on body weight exercises only at the start of lockdown. Most PT would have not bothered if you didn’t have any equipment to use.
Since I started training with Matt 3 months ago, I’ve am now stronger and much healthier. Simple things like running with kids on the beach and walking up and down stairs used to bring pain to my knees and left me feeling generally weak and fatigued. Working full time with 4 kids and their after school sports never left any time for my health. Matt tailored by regime to suit my capability and my busy family life. I can honestly say I enjoyed working out from the get go with Matt. 3 months on and I really feel the benefits. My muscles feel stronger, there’s no more pain in my joints and I look forward to my 7am training sessions - words I never thought I would hear myself say! Even with the recent covid-19 impact, bringing self isolation to most, I still get to work out over zoom with Matt. Matt goes above and beyond, to make sure I get the same level of service. I am now lifting 3 days per week, and improving with every session. A huge confidence booster! Highly recommend Eye of The Tiger Fitness’
My boys have been training with Matt and they have improved so much. Matt has motivated the boys and helped them gain strength and skills. I highly recommend Eye of the Tiger training. Thank you Matt.
Since my 11yr old son has started seeing Matt we seen so many positive changes. Not just physically but in mindset as well. He thoroughly enjoys each session and I know that Matt is pushing him to be faster, more agile and stronger. It’s the little touches that differentiates Matt from other trainers, the personal messages of support and encouragement. Teaching my preteen when being a good human is all about.
If a customised approach, motivation and encouragement is what you’re looking for in a PT, I totally recommend Eye of the Tiger Coaching. Having done very little exercise for most of 2019 due to lack of motivation, I knew I had to create new fitness habits but didn’t know where to begin. I started customised one-on-one fitness training sessions twice a week with Eye of the Tiger Coaching and found Matt’s encouragement and personalised approach fantastic; challenging yet achievable and sustainable. Also, he makes it really enjoyable to train, which was an added encouragement (compared to previous PT sessions at gyms when I couldn’t wait for it to be over). Matt’s professionalism, knowledge and passion for fitness is second to none and I’m looking forward to continuing my fitness journey in 2020 thanks to Matt’s support and inspiration.
My son has recently started 1:1 boxing lessons with Matt and I’m already seeing a difference! He is always red- faced, sweaty and beaming when I pick him up and can’t wait for his next session. Very importantly to me - Matt is always so caring and gentle with my sensitive boy 🙂
Matt is an exceptional personal trainer, mentor and coach. Matt personalises and tailors the training specifically to my individual needs, adjusting accordingly and constantly changing it up. He sends me reminder messages to keep me motivated and to ensure I'm prepared for my sessions. Theres the added bonus of his ability to provide assisted stretching to reduce muscle fatigue and improve flexibility. Matt is one of the most dedicated and committed trainers i've ever used and i cannot recommend Matt highly enough. 😀
Matt was brilliant to work with. He shows you exactly how to do the exercise, and monitors your progress, checking your form all the time. He is driven and pushes you to do your best, and to do more than you think you actually think are capable of. Do yourself a favour and join Matt, you won't be disappointed!
There are lots of options now for health & fitness so it can be a little overwhelming on which direction to take or what will work best for you. Matt takes away the confusion. At a consult he'll put you at ease (no judgement), listen to what you aim to achieve, run you through a few exercises to see how your body moves... the output of this is a program that's made solely with you in mind. With Matt you will have a PT that really knows his stuff and will push you without being pushy! Matt lives his life to the fullest and encourages others to do the same.
My 16 year old was struggling with confidence, fitness and body issues. Matt has tailored a specific training program for my son. He has been given guidance on diet and fitness in ways that a teenager wont listen to anyone else but a third party! Matt has also created a consciousness that wasn’t there before in my son! He is currently doing a 12week training session, we are two weeks in! Can not wait to see how this goes �
Matt is a great personal trainer, he is very knowledgeable and will motivate and push you to do your best. My fitness and strength improved thanks to Matt! I would highly recommend!
I highly recommend Eye of the Tiger Coaching for nutritional, weightloss or training advice. Matt is extremely passionate in helping people achieve their goals and shows dedication by providing personalised plans, support and guidance to suit individual goals.
Matt is an awesome trainer he really know his craft. No intimidation you will feel comfortable in a team environment. With Matt's guidance you are well on your way to reaching your goals. I 100% recommend Eye of the Tiger Coaching
