"Working with Matt was crucial running up to my Olympic debut. Not only is he technically advanced, but he is also a skilled motivator!"

Chris Mears
Olympic Gold - Rio 2016

"MotoGP is a complex equation: be strong, be agile, be out on track (even after injury). Matt is able to turn text book into reality and keep it fun along the way. The job's not for everyone, but those who can do it, make a huge difference."

Bradley Smith
Moto GP - Aprilia Racing
"Matt's coaching has allowed me to perform at my peak, week in week out. I would strongly encourage anyone looking to get ahead of the competition to enlist Matt's help."
Matt Miles
England Counties Captain
