Matty Schmid – Personal Trainer

Matty Schmid is my Personal Trainer at JD Gyms Thornton-Cleveleys. He’s a qualified personal trainer and gym instructor and says his goal is to “change my client’s lives and help them become the person they want to be”. That’s certainly what he is helping me to do!

Matty has also set up his own fitness business – Active4You – and is building a healthy online client base offering personalised training and nutritional plans alongside his gym-based personal training clients. Now based at Ribby Hall Health Club, as well as JD Gyms Thornton-Cleveleys.

“I walked into JD Gym Thornton-Cleveleys on 5th of September and signed up. I was looking for a personal trainer who could knock me into shape whilst being sensitive to the fact I’d never been into a gym before. Matty answered the call and I had my first teaser session with him the following evening. I’ve now spent 12 x 1 hour sessions with him and yep, he knows his stuff. But beyond that, he’s a thoroughly nice guy. We chat, have a bit of a laugh, but all the time he’s pushing me, supporting me. He is my gym buddy on Tuesdays and Thursdays, leaving me to do my cardio work in the gym the rest of the week. He helped me ‘get over’ my gymtimidation. I genuinely look forward to visiting the gym, especially on the days with Matty when I know he’ll push me to help me achieve my ultimate goals.”

Matty is also establishing a solid social media presence with regular video updates featuring hints and tips on how to get the most out of your workouts! He’s on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok, with his latest posts featured below.
