“I have listened to Matt twice now and both times I have left feeling very motivated and inspired. His story has brought tears to my eyes and has completely changed my views on how I look at people, you have no idea why people are the way they are or what they are going through. Matt has showed great courage and dedication through out his life – despite what has been thrown his way, this is a story everyone needs to hear at least once.” – Melissa S.

“Matt’s transformation has both inspired and driven me to continue my own journey. It’s not simply passion that can cause change it is making a decision and working really hard every day. Being relentless and making no excuses. Matt has great empathy and the ability to take his own journey and turn it around so it becomes valid for the other person and their own journey. There is no better way to mentor than leading by example and that what Matt is all about.” – Didier M.

“Listening to Matt talk about his life, challenges and how he became the person he is today was eye opening! I left the chat feeling motivated to make a change. It’s pretty easy to look at someone and make a snap judgement about them without knowing what they’ve gone through. Listening to how Matt has overcome challenges and adversity is his life has changed the way I look at people struggling with weight and mental health issues. I highly recommend listening to this story! ” – Simon G.


“I still use Matt’s talk in my daily life for motivation.”
