Instructor Focus … Meet Matt

Hi guys, I’m Matthew Winfer … Matt for short

I’ve been at Pilates Nation since late last year and for those who haven’t been to my classes, I’m here to tell you a bit about me, my interests and my experiences.  I’ve been doing pilates for about 3 and a half years now and got into it because of rehab.  I tore the ACL in my knee a few years ago and my physiotherapist used pilates to help me get back to playing my sports.  Sport and exercise has been present all my life and with it,  my fair share of experience with injuries.

I’m currently in my final year of my Bachelor of Exercise Science degree and am looking to complete my Masters Degree in Physiotherapy Practice over the next 2 years.  I’ve completed my placement hours for my degree in various gym settings and sporting clubs such as Carlton FC.  Along my journey I’ve met a lot of individuals with numerous physical problems, and my aim is to help get rid of those issues, whether it’s a medical issue or simply becoming more active … and of course having a laugh and some fun whilst doing it.

Whether its group classes, kids’ classes or privates, I enjoy finding out which areas clients like to work on and focusing on what you want to get out of classes.  I find making classes the most fun gives people an incentive to come back for more.

I find helping people overcome their physical issues or bettering themselves in small or major ways makes me happy and that’s why I’m passionate about pilates, so my goal is to help you guys feel the same way.

I hope to see you in class soon,
