The GOPT Way

What we do at GOPT is so much more than just a workout. Our coaching program involves working towards constant improvement in 5 areas that we have control over. Mindset management, Sleep, Nutrition,Training and Connection with people.

After 25 years in the fitness industry, we have seen many methods, fads, techniques and plans. We have refined our program to what it is today by researching, reviewing, applying and testing. The system that we use today, “The GOPT Way”, is proven, it gets great results, but most importantly the results achieved are sustainable because what we coach is a lifestyle, we don’t look for quick fixes or rapid results, we build healthy habits and rituals around exercise and nutrition that you continue to do for the rest of your life.

Mindset management

We prioritize mental health as much as physical health. We realise that to look good from the neck down, we need to do work from the neck up. Our program teaches Mindset management, we call it mental muscle work. We include meditation and breathing exercise into our program, we develop, share and promote content that has you thinking and doing differently, we teach you to be truly present in all that you do, to let go of the past and associated depression, to not waste energy thinking about what might happen and associated anxiety. We teach you how to choose where your focus goes and energy flows.


Sleep is one of the key areas of health that many programs completely overlook.  Not GOPT, we have done extensive research in this area and as a result, our coaching program focusses heavily on quality and quantity of sleep to ensure you are able to reach your absolute best physical and mental health. As with each of the 5 areas we work on, we strive for progress not perfection in this area and realise that sleep patterns have been established over years so will take time to change and improve


Nutrition will influence greatly how you look, think, feel and move. Our aim is to help you establish what works best for you and is sustainable. Based on your goals we help you understand what foods are best for you and in what quantities. You are an individual, so your nutrition plan needs to work for you. We do not hand out cookie cutter approach 1200 calorie diets that are too restrictive and simply not sustainable. There is no point hitting a goal by doing something that you can’t maintain to then fall back into your old habits and undo all of your hard work. Our nutrition focus is to have you establish and completely understand a system of eating that gives you great results and you keep for the rest of your life.


Our Training methodology is based around preparing you for the unknown and the unknowable, building a stronger, leaner body with greater working capacity. We use a variety of modalities and aim to see improvements in what we consider the 10 key areas of fitness. Cardiorespiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, accuracy, agility, balance. We recognise that each of our members are at different levels and our coaches are experts at establishing the right amount of work for each individual. What we do is Group Personal Training and we are very good at it.

Connection with People

Finally, and probably what keeps our members getting great results with us for such a long time is our focus on Connection with Humans. We recognise that who we surround ourselves with is who we become. Connection with good quality people on the same path as you, will be critical to your success. Our community is something very special, led by coaches who truly care about you and your health and happiness. We help our members who we call athletes, strive for progress not perfection in each of the five areas you have control over and we provide support and accountability that you will not find anywhere else.

Group Personal Training

Our members have access to a group personal training timetable of 19 sessions every week. These sessions are open to all ages, levels and genders. These sessions are not Bootcamp. Each individual’s personal goals, levels and specific requirements are taken into consideration and each session is tailored to suit individual requirements.

1 on 1 or Private Group Sessions

Available upon request. One on one sessions and private group sessions are quoted separately, with price being based on number of participants and location of session.

Corporate Programs

As businesses in today’s society look for ways to improve efficiency, productivity and the bottom line, most are faced with the growing issue of lost productivity from excessive employee sick days caused by on-the-job stress and injuries. A well-implemented wellness program can significantly reduce the number of sick days employees take, and with improved health, employee on the-job productivity also increases.

Our Values

Humble, Hungry, Happy

What our clients say

Matt is the best trainer I have ever been to, I have been going to gyms for years with no results. But with Matt, he will motivate you in a health level that suits any fitness level. I’m pleased with what he has helped me achieved regarding fitness and change of body shape. The tools that you will learn from Matt are life changing and achievable. I will always recommend anyone to jump on board and give him a go. Your first session is free.

I could not recommend GOPT enough. Not only does GOPT make me feel good physically, but mentally and emotionally too. Matt and Jenny will push you to meet your goals daily and you will always start or end your day feeling great once finishing a session. GOPT will not only change your physical fitness, but your mindset too!

I have never been a particularly active person, and while I have joined gyms and clubs in the past, my enthusiasm only lasted for a couple of months at the most, and I found myself pulling out all my old excuses for why I couldn’t do it anymore.

To be honest, that’s what I expected would happen when I went along to my first fitness session with GOPT, but I’m ecstatic to say that was over two years ago, and rarely in that time have I lost my enthusiasm to keep going. Matt is such an awesome trainer, and in any session there is such a wide variety or people of all different fitness levels, so everyone feels comfortable.

I’ve made some great new friends, lost an amazing 13kg, feel the fittest I’ve ever felt, and have accomplished things (such as the Raw Challenge) that I NEVER thought I would do. I just can’t thank Matt enough, and would recommend GOPT to everyone. SO GET OFF THE LOUNGE!! COME AND JOIN US!! J J

I have been attending GOPT fitness sessions since May 2013 which I attend 5 sessions per week.

I remember receiving a leaflet in my letter box that a personal trainer was holding fitness sessions down at the tennis courts at our local club house. I was very interested in doing outdoor fitness as I felt very unfit. I had surgery on both of my knees a couple of years prior and had no strength to carry out much in the way of fitness. I wanted to be able to kneel down, run, skip, jump and even just simple things like gardening which I couldn’t do comfortably for a long time.

I called Matt and explained my situation about my knees and that I would love to get my knees working again and get fit. I immediately felt comfortable with Matt in just our first conversation on the phone. Matt said to try out his sessions and together we could work on strengthening my knees again. With Matt’s expert advice, patience and guidance both in getting my knees stronger and better eating habits I was off!!  Yes, I was able to run again. In a few months I was running nonstop 5kms nearly every morning. It was like a dream come true for me. I was hooked and couldn’t stop running. If it wasn’t for Matt, I don’t think I could have achieved my result.

I’m 50 years old and I can honestly say I feel great and feel the fittest that I have been in a very long time.

I take Matt’s advice in nutrition and my eating habits have changed for the better.

In the time I’ve been attending I’ve seen many other members bodies transform and also become fitter. I can feel their satisfaction in their achievements as I went through it myself.

Matt is an awesome personal trainer, he cares about people’s individual needs, health, fitness and always has a positive attitude.  He never makes anyone feel different or that they can’t do it.

Fitness at GOPT for me has become part of my weekly routine, it’s fun, it’s social, it’s outdoors and we all have a laugh.

As for Matt’s bad dad jokes, well that’s another story!!

I have been training with GOPT for just under 3 and a half years. I have lost just over 10 kilos, and have kept it off!! I have so much more energy, I feel fantastic and can honestly say I truly look forward to going to EVERY session.

Matt and GOPT have definitely made me the person I am today. We train with an awesome group of people who have become great friends and we have a laugh while we make positive changes to our lifestyles.

I would strongly recommend training with GOPT to anyone. It’s great
