Ultimate Boxing founder and head coach Matt is a BBBofC licensed professional boxing trainer, Level 2 England Boxing coach and WABBA qualified personal trainer / fitness instructor.
After a short spell of boxing training at around 12 years old, Matt returned to Lowestoft Amateur Boxing Club just before hitting his 30s to get fit and lose some weight.
The bug bit hard this time and over the next few years he got fit enough to take part in 10 competitive bouts before deciding that coaching was the way forward for a then thirty-something year old.
Matt had started Ultimate Boxing in 2005 using space at the local amateur gym for other like-minded participants. Things went from strength to strength and in 2011 Ultimate Boxing leased their first premises in Lowestoft with a second added a few years later at Beccles.
Matt enjoys helping people at varying levels of boxing to reach their goals ranging from fitness clients to amateur boxers to professionals.
