Matt Hodges

Behind Gym Doors

Surely a personal trainer’s life is a doddle? It can’t be that bad helping the overweight shed their excess pounds while keeping the fat off the already fit? Wrong! Personal Trainer Matt Hodges lifts the lid on what really goes on at the gym and the people who pass through the doors. Actors, singers, wannabe stars, B-list celebrities, Russian gangsters, trust fund babies, you name them he’s worked with them and they’re all memorable…though not always for the right reasons! There are belly laughs a plenty in this debut book but don’t read it if you’re a looking for a new diet, have issues with germs, or are allergic to cabbage!

“A funny, irreverent, behind the scenes look at gyms, their customers and the people who work in them. Hodges doesn’t pull his punches. Prepare to be amused, entertained, or even appalled at some bizarre client behaviours.”
