“Matt is someone who leads by example”

"When I approached MR Lifting for guidance with my lifts never did I think I would be where I am today. Matt’s knowledge, dedication, support and commitment to each and every one of his lifters is his obligation to get the absolute best out of each of them. Matt is someone who leads by example, he also tells you what you don’t want to hear, but what you need to. He see’s what you don’t and builds you up to where you never thought was possible."

"In under 12 months, I have lost 65kg and have never felt better. I have more energy, I'm more flexible, stronger, agile, mobile and happy."

"In under 12 months, I have lost 65kg and have never felt better. I have more energy, I'm more flexible, stronger, agile, mobile and happy. I look forward to training and reaching my goals. In May 2019, Matt suggested I compete in my first powerlifting competition in Melbourne. My initial thoughts were 'as if. There is absolutely no way I'm doing that'. He planted the seed, helped me overcome my anxiety and supported me. I had to wear a powerlifting suit, which Matt ordered for me. I was surrounded by my family and the support was palpably. I got my first Australian record of 170kg deadlift. During my journey, Matt has always been by my side. He has kept me focused and motivated. My weight loss success, increased strength and flexibility is proof that the individual programs Matt sets are effective and work. Matt has assisted and guided me to get my life back."
