On the first meeting*I would like to talk with you about your expectations and goals. I will ask about your everyday habits, preferred exercises and activities as well as your favorite foods. Next, we will establish goals and priorities and finally analyze your diet. We will determine the percentage of fat in your body, your metabolic age, muscle mass, hydration level and caloric needs.
After that there’s nothing left to do but train!
*The first meeting is not binding as it is a chance for us to get to know each other. A successful cooperation is based upon mutual trust. I will do my best to create for you a friendly atmosphere and in return, you will promise me to keep to what we have agreed on.
Depending on your individual needs, I will plan for you a variety of physical activities.
INCREASE IN MUSCULAR STRENGTH
If you want to take advantage of verified solutions on your own - buy a ready-made training plan fitted especially for you.
Bodyweight training, free weights, TRX, crossfit, BOSU, kettlebells and elements of boxing are my tools of trade. Moreover, during a session with a customer I employ techniques borrowed from physiotherapy to achieve better work ergonomics.
It is you who decides which fitness club is best for you and at what time we will meet. I also am in possession of equipment that allows us to meet at your home or outdoors.
I have been training kids, teenagers, adults and elderly people. Thanks to vast qualifications I am able to train pregnant and post-pregnancy women as well as handicapped people.
'You are what you eat' - everyone has heard this at least once in a lifetime because what we eat actually influences each and every aspect of our life. Your diet should be the basis for all changes. In this field I support rational solutions because they are effective in the long term. Depending on your condition, individual preferences and requirements (e.g. veganism) I can create a diet plan that will meet all your needs. After a diet interview, a body composition analysis and, if needed, a food tolerance test we will decide which solutions will be most beneficial for you.
Better nutrition, high comfort, quick effects? This is what supplements will help you with. I offer my customers only verified products from the best producers.
Individual expectations towards diet plans are being met in an accessible, ready to use form. I cooperate with nutritionists who can prepare and deliver your perfect dietetic solution.
Sample dietetic aims:
Changing bad nutrition habits
It involves affecting the body with physical stimulation i.e. light, magnetic fields, ultrasounds etc. Stimulation contributes to natural regeneration processes disrupted by surgeries and long-term overloads or inflammations.
Thanks to state-of-art equipment I also offer:
ELECTROTHERAPY – INTERFERENTIAL CURRENTS
LASER THERAPY – BIOPTRON
It is a method of taping one’s body with special tapes in a strictly defined way. It gives a quick therapeutic effect so dynamic taping may act as supportive therapy in virtually any treatment.
In other words - treatment with movement. It is the most natural method of getting back in shape. It is widely applied to neurological afflictions as well as stature correction. When working with a patient I use PNF - Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation
LifeWave nanoelectrodes influence electromagnetic properties of human body. They are like a radio transmitting the right frequency signal which results in activation of biological processes inside of cells. LifeWave nanoelectrodes are a state-of-art form of phototherapy. Electrodes are placed on body similarly to an adhesive plaster. They stimulate acupuncture points as well as the surface of skin, which brings health benefits unattainable with any other available product. A patented, not percutaneous LifeWave technology underwent over 70 tests - not without a reason: those products bear radical, often instantaneous results, e.g.:
vibrancy throughout the day without stimulants
quick pain relief
natural increase in sleep length and quality
postponing aging effects
...and many more.
Since I can remember sports and healthy lifestyle were not only my passions but also values that I wanted to share with others. Nowadays the fitness and wellness fields intertwine, people start to notice the importance of healthy lifestyle. Caring for health and body condition often takes a preventive form. It also may be a result of previous injuries or illnesses. My qualifications and experience gained in fitness clubs in Poland and abroad allow me to help people who want to work on their bodies and physical condition to increase their healthiness as well as those who have just finished or are in the course of their rehabilitation. Thanks to medical education and personal trainer qualifications I am able to thoroughly analyze human body biomechanics, which makes my trainings highly effective, safe and beneficial for the organism functions.
The knowledge of human anatomy and physiology allow me to, among others, realize goals such as back-pain reduction, visual stature correction or regaining functionality. Moreover, I employ mental training techniques, which strengthens one's psyche. Optimistic attitude is invaluable in breaking down barriers. I believe that body has to make a varied and complex effort to be in shape till the end of our days. I use my vast knowledge in the field of dietetics and nutraceuticals to compose harmonious diet programs, based on taste and nutritional value. I always thoroughly evaluate products and seasonings to manipulate with their values in my work. I am not afraid of challenges and each and every customer is important to me. The success of my trainees is as important as my own.
Personal trainer, physiotherapist
Working with people I encounter new cases all the time. Caring for the highest quality of my services, I constantly improve my knowledge on specialist courses and trainings.
'I met Matthew at the gym. He is an extremely outgoing and patient person, and he is always there to answer all my questions. Although I am disabled, Matthew does not treat me lightly because of that. We train hard, but with attention to all the smallest details. As we all know, you have to invest in yourself, but the effects are really visible. The only thing is to find yourself a good trainer who will keep everything in place. Do not look too far. Matthew is a really good coach.'
'I found out about Matthew accidentally when I was working in Norway. Training at the gym was my only amusement. One of my colleagues, who previously trained with Matthew, recommended him to me, so I gave him a shot. We consulted on my diet and training plan via skype and email. At first I was not sure if training in accordance to the plan but on my own would give expected effects, but after 3 months of following Matthew’s directions I have achieved my best physical shape ever! I recommend him to anyone who is looking for certain results.'
'Mr. Sowiński, a physiotherapist whose services I have used many times, is a true professional with the right attitude towards his clients. The price to quality ratio of his services is very convenient. Moreover, he had never shown a sign of bad mood or lack of commitment. My problems with knees made my daily routine a real struggle. The therapy took the pain away and, what is more, I took on running! With clear conscience I can recommend his services to anyone.'
'I had been working out for some time, but I was not satisfied with the quality of my physical activities. Personal training with Mateusz allowed me to reach the next level. I was shown how to do the exercises correctly. I have also learned plenty of new trainings and exercises, which has not only improved my physique and brought me closer to my goals, but also showed me that gym workout is an interesting and diverse physical activity. What is more, now I know how to eat properly in order to progress but still be able to enjoy my favorite food.'
'I gave birth to my first child at the age of 23. After the first pregnancy my body was no longer the same. After two more births it was getting worse and worse and now all my children are grown-ups. It is no secret that I was never keen on sports and my job is sedentary. With height of 169cm I weighed 90kg. One day, when my youngest daughter told me that I should do something with myself, I felt that it is about time to change something in my life. Shortly afterwards I met Mateusz Sowiński. His positive attitude and looking for activities that would appeal to me have resulted in a loss of 20 kg in one year. After a very long time I finally feel attractive again, and this is probably the best recommendation I can make.'
'I was searching for a a personal trainer for a long time before I decided to start working out with Matthew. I have been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for 8 years now and for people with this disease it is extremely important to exercise every single day. While looking for a coach I took many factors into account, however, Matthew’s biggest and most distinctive advantage, the one that made him stand out among other trainers, was his degree in physiotherapy. Being a sick person I was aware that doing inappropriate exercises, badly suited to my needs and capabilities, may result in deterioration in my condition. Working with Matthew I was sure that I was in good hands.'
