About the business:
At Fitness Matters our aim is to help you achieve your fitness targets and offer you all the knowledge, motivation and support you need to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle - whether you are an athlete, enthusiast or just a beginner. Based in Exeter, Fitness Matters was founded by Personal Trainer Sam Blythe, a professional rugby player with the Exeter Chiefs.
Outside of knowledge and experience, our skills are in motivating clients and giving them the self-belief to get the best out of themselves. This coupled with thorough nutritional and lifestyle advice leads to the very best results. A key point is that both training and dietary advice is given at a pace that can be sustained within the clients’ lifestyle. This avoids the need for constant yoyo exercise and dieting. Consideration is made for the individual, and we acknowledge that every man and woman is different, as are his or her bodies and goals. We cater for every individual, whatever their goals and sessions and training structure are completely unique to them. Fitness Matters primarily operates from a unique one on one personal training studio whilst in addition offering sessions from the comfort of your own home - ensuring your privacy in all situations. Our fully insured and qualified trainers are understanding and approachable and are professional at all times.

I was at a low point in my life, turning 45, losing my father and feeling uncomfortable with myself. I needed to lose some weight, so after picking up the local newsletter and seeing an advert for Fitness Matters I emailed Sam. Within minutes I had a reply assuring me he could help! The day came of the appointment to assess my goals, I found myself very apprehensive until Sam put me at ease!
After being trained now for the last three months I've started my journey to a more comfortable person having the confidence to be able to go swimming with my family for one is fantastic. I put this all down to Sam having the ability to make you really want to do it and when your not at the Fitness Matters studio he's still in the back of your mind keeping an eye out! I thank you Sam!
