Trained By Tarrant

The secret of getting ahead is getting started.


Tristan Costa
I’ve met many coaches in my sporting life . Matthew is one of those you could follow to the moon. The plan is great, I've really improved my PB, but what i appreciate the most are his words and tips. It's funny how, when I'm struggling with my training, he finds the right words to recover some motivation. After two years he’s still finding technical details that help a lot!
Danny Graham
Not only did Mat produce an exceptionally well structured programme, but his communication, advice and encouragement was first rate throughout. Highly recommended!
Chris Evans
Great attention to detail when designing my programme. The feedback and support has been first class. Highly recommend.
Shane Riley
Excellent plan which took into account my needs as an athlete throughout. Adapted to fit around my other training as well as a few injuries I have. Matthew has a way of getting the best out of you with well-executed planning and very informative feedback. Highly recommend!
Chris Power
Absolutely brilliant, helped me until the end with advice, training programme and support. Always professional, friendly and makes everything feel personal. Couldn’t ask for more.
Milan Elezovic
Being trained for the past 3 years by Matt Tarrant completely transformed my training. I now have realistic goals, know what I am doing and the accountability that comes with being trained by a Team GB rower makes me train more regularly. It’s a privilege to be trained by a World Champion and Olympian at the top of his game.
Rochelle Clark
Wonderful to be a part of something so special. The detail and specific training programme for me keeps me motivated and able to reach goals. I’d thoroughly recommend this to everyone to try out. You won’t be disappointed. Matthew’s communication and constant checking in is reassuring to know he is at hand.

Matthew Tarrant

I started coaching following my time at the Rio Olympic games in 2016. Coaching gave me an opportunity to switch off from my daily commitments as a full-time athlete and focus on helping others achieve goals of their own using my knowledge and experience. I take great satisfaction in helping others achieve what they previously thought was not possible.

I have over 16 years of experience competing at the highest level for Great Britain including two Olympic Games, Rio and Tokyo. Over these 16 years, I’ve had the good fortune of working alongside some of the best coaches from around the world including S&C, Nutrition, Physiotherapy, Physiology and Psychology. I’m also a qualified rowing coach, fitness instructor and personal trainer.

My Core Values
