Matt Guzzardi

PERSONAL TRAINER, GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR AND BOXING COACH

​​My journey to becoming a personal fitness trainer:

Fitness training became an important part of my week when I decided I wanted to be faster and stronger with more defined muscles.

I set an early alarm to ride to my local gym where men who knew my father suggested weight training exercises to do.

Before becoming a fitness trainer I was employed in professions that required serving the public, transporting products, metal fabrication and breeding beef cattle.

These workplace efforts were physically demanding, my sister who studied Human Movement at the Phillip Institute of Sport at that time prescribed fitness training programs for me;

  • muscle balance to prevent injuries and improve posture,
  • resistance training for quicker movements,
  • stretching for better recovery.

Moving faster for longer, recovering quicker and preventing injuries kept my spirits high, I felt well and maintained the exercise program.

15 years later I decided to study to become a personal fitness trainer myself, I chose this new path because of the rewards I’d received personally from my fitness regime along with comments describing the motivation I provide to those around me encouraging them to join fitness training sessions.

I’ve enjoyed a range of sporting activities in life;

  • Boxing
  • Cricket
  • Australian rules football
  • Tennis
  • Taekwondo
  • Soccer
  • Athletics

Boxing provides me with the best feedback because it continually challenges the specificity of my fitness training regime;

  • Core
  • Reflexes
  • Balance
  • Strength
  • Power
  • Bounce
  • Focus

My Grandfather was a boxer, his influence improved my balance and methods to generate power and speed. I like the philosophies he maintained throughout life.

As a personal trainer, group fitness instructor and boxing coach I help people improve their fitness so they embrace life more fully.

Shirin Guzzardi

PERSONAL TRAINER, GROUP FITNESS INSTRUCTOR AND METAFIT COACH

My journey to becoming a personal fitness trainer:

I’ve enjoyed sports all my life and decided to try out Personal Training in 2007.

In 2009 motherhood caused me to leave my place of employment with APTC in tourism. By 2011 I had two children, I was becoming more and more active, I studied to become a personal trainer and became qualified in February 2014.

My nature motivates positive thoughts, this inspires those I train to reach their fitness goals in a friendly and supportive way.

Health and fitness has become a serious focus in my life.
There’s rarely a day I don’t give great attention to it.
My favourite food nowadays is home cooked food so I know exactly what is in it. I love to prepare meals at home for my family to nourish their bodies.

If dining out, I love “Sugar Cane” restaurant in Coogee and having a bite with friends at “Tropicana” cafe also in Coogee.

As child I loved being active, playing sport or just simply moving always felt good.

As a fitness trainer I fully understand how amazing the benefits of exercise are!
I really enjoy helping others find movement patterns that give them a sense of fulfilment.

I motivate those I train towards greater fitness gains and reaching their goals when they’re with me and when without via online nutritional guidance and tailor made programs!

I’m an energetic positive personal fitness trainer capable of strengthening your mind and channeling your daily actions!

​My favourite exercise types are HIIT and Strength Training.
