Finding Matt at Mint was a huge stroke of luck and transformed both my attitude and physical fitness: one short, intense and structured session every week – no need to spend hours flailing around in a gym, no need to think about what I need to do as Matt does the thinking and planning.It’s so effective and satisfying, and I always leave feeling fantastic. I sleep better and have the strength and enthusiasm to engage in other activities – swimming up to 5km each week, 20 mile walks on the Downs, a few hours’ dancing.Matt is unfailingly enthusiastic but so very far from the adrenaline-crazed gym zealots / boot camp types who’ve put me off exercise so many times over the years: the only danger in his sessions is laughing so much you drop a weight.
I’m moving away from Brighton in January 2016 and I shall miss the weekly HIT sessions with Matt at Mint so much. I’ll be planning my future Brighton visits to include a Mint session whenever possible.

Having tried trained on ARX now for a few months, I have to say I am mightily impressed with the after effects! Totally maxes out your glucose stores. We also know from the science that HIT exercise generates lactate, which in turn stimulates growth hormone – especially 12-15 mins of interval training 2-3 times weekly. But combine a session or ARX in between and this will push your growth hormone levels way up. Fantastic for those looking to build muscle and lose fat! Fantastic to see Mint investing in kit that really works!

Over the past decade I’ve been in and out of various different gyms, but have never managed to achieve the kind of results I was looking for. That all changed when I met Matt at the Mint Fitness Studio. At 31 years of age, I feel fitter, stronger and healthier than ever. I know enjoy the short, intense sessions.

I was unsure about high intensity training as I was worried I would get muscly rather than fit. After a few years of HIT I am a complete convert. My body shape has changed for the better, I am much more toned and generally feel much stronger, fitter and energised. It takes focus and dedication but Matt is very supportive and motivational. It is quite incredible how each week you see the results and can do more and more. When I first started I really struggled to do 2 or 3 proper press ups ! The best thing is it takes only 20 mins of hard work per session so it’s great for busy people who struggle to find time to get fit.!

Since I started personal training at Mint Fitness my fitness and strength have improved so much. For a mum juggling work and home life; it’s brilliant. Two 30 minute sessions a week replace hours of gym classes like Spinning and aerobics. Its flexible, quick, almost enjoyable and I feel the benefits. Matt is a great trainer, I’ve been seeing him twice a week for a couple of years and I never get bored. Matt is concerned with my overall fitness and well being.
