These solutions help gym operators deliver on various goals such as increasing participation in physical activity, reducing barriers to participation and cost effectively managing their facility through smart gym operations.

Matt led the Nuffield Health elevation programme, transforming fitness clubs across the UK into high end facilities that adopted the latest trends and innovations. This ensured existing members remained engaged in achieving their goals whilst also increasing overall participation in physical activity across the estate. This not only involved liaising with suppliers but also the customer.

By voicing concerns, sharing perspectives, offering valuable insights and knowledge, and engaging in strategic discussions, Matt will help shape policies, standards, and initiatives that will benefit the Supplier Council, ukactive and the industry as a whole.

As an independent service provider, ServiceSport UK sits in a unique position, capturing feedback across the whole spectrum of the fitness industry. By working with so many types of operators, and understanding their day to day challenges, Matt is empowered to share best practices with the Supplier Council relating to this category, and in particular, the most important asset that a gym owns – it’s equipment.

In his role at ServiceSport UK, Matt is dedicated to supporting the growth and development of the fitness industry. By actively participating in the Supplier Council, Matt will contribute to initiatives that promote industry advancement, be an advocate for beneficial policies, and drive positive change within the industry.

In summary, Matt is a reputable and forward-thinking industry expert that has the innovation, customer focus, collaborative mindset, commitment to industry growth, advocacy role, and dedication to improvement that make him a valuable candidate for a seat on the Supplier Council.
