About The Guest:

Matt Fletcher


Matt Fletcher’s been living a sober life. He’s the lucky husband of Erin, a proud father of 2 daughters, Emily and Makayla, and a devoted doggy dad to Archy, the Cavoodle Spoodle.

He is on a journey of constant and never-ending improvement, a Committed Coach of Committed athletes, Cert III & IV qualified personal trainer, Sports Nutritionist, Diploma of Health Fitness and Sports Training, Crossfit Level 1 Coach, Metafit registered trainer, and an Accredited Bootcamp and Outdoor Group Training instructor.


He has been in and around the health and fitness industry since 1996, working in commercial gyms, and council-run gyms, delivering corporate health and wellness programs, and the owner and founder of GOPT Group Personal Training since January 2013.


His journey through adulthood has given him a wonderful opportunity to learn about human behavior. Through his own personal challenges with alcohol and drugs, he learned what it is like to rely on substances to manage his emotions and how he feels. By choosing a life of sobriety, currently, 7 years clean and sober, he established a life that is filled with joy, peace, laughter, and serenity, and he has a toolbox of ways to manage himself effectively in most situations without alcohol or drugs. Today, Matt loves his life. He is fitter, stronger, healthier, and happier than he has ever been. He is 45 now. He is working on being even fitter, stronger, healthier, and happier by the time he reaches 55. One day at a time, he will enjoy the challenge of constant

and never-ending improvement.


He is married with 2 young daughters 8 and 5 and he cherishes the challenges that come with these gifts. He has created a system around living, that has become known as “THE GOPT WAY”. It involves managing well what is within your control. Your sleep, nutrition, mindset, physical training, and connection with good quality people.


The GOPT way stems from 2 decades of coaching people and getting clear on how you need to impact multiple areas of your life to achieve long-term positive change, these are also the areas of his life that he is continuously working on in his recovery from alcohol and drug abuse. Two decades of coaching and his own personal challenges helped him become clear that working on each of these areas can help anyone who wants a better life. If we want our lives to be better, we need to become better.
