Goals, gifts and giving back…

A few weeks ago I was approached by BBC Radio for an interview about my bodybuilding comp. What has happened since continues to take my breath away.

Humbled by the comments, views and shares I have been approached by many individuals and also parents of those looking at adaptive training, I’ve had some really interesting questions about how I do what I do. I try out, a lot of trial and error, starting small and building, bit by bit. You adapt to your own style & the situation in front of you and give it your best shot!

Thank you to Emma, Jennie and the team at Radio Bristol, they made me feel really comfortable and confident to speak about my disability and training.

In addition, off the back of the stations video posted on their Facebook page, I had a wonderful surprise bundle of training wear sent to me from clothing brand Gymshark. (See below) I was suffice to say very emotional at such a gesture for doing something I love everyday and cannot thank them enough.

I am always thinking of ways of giving back what I have learned over the years and if I have inspired people to look at adaptive training as a result than I am delighted and proud to show my progress to the world.

I’ll continue to work and giving it my best shot, I’m currently 6 weeks from my comp date, I will continue to keep you posted!

All the best,

Matt 💪🏋🏼
