Matthew is an exercise scientist, and physical & outdoor educator. A speaker, coach and passionate surfer. Matt has spent the last 15 years teaching, leading and coaching individuals & teams from all over the world, to adapt, develop & grow.
Matt's goal was always to improve performance.
Applying better strategies, with an optimistic mindset leads to better results. Matt's relentless pursuit of performance lead to discovery; the best performances took place when individuals and teams were completely PRESENT and in FLOW. Consequently, there was a need to make a shift in his coaching approach. It became less about striving and strategies and more about allowing and letting go.
Great performances for teams or individuals were often the result of being in a FLOW STATE, which amazingly also leads to a personal sense of profound meaning and fulfilment.
Matt's mission became clear, connect people to these experiences and increase the potential for Flow States in people's lives while helping to facilitate and integrate the wisdom obtained through these experiences.
Matt has witnessed many times while coaching a huge array of people. When humans surrender, trust in something bigger than themselves and stay present. Then Magic is possible. We call that magic FLOW. This intern led to a more consistent interaction with FLOW.. a self-fulfilling prophecy at PLAY.
