Hi, my name is Matt Wallin and I'm the sole personal trainer and massage therapist of Tarka Fitness and Therapy in North Devon. I've been working in the health and fitness industry since graduating in2014, building up numerous qualifications and adding to my knowledge and experience. My passion for health and wellbeing stemmed from my love for my sports, particularly rugby, through which I discovered the gym and strength & conditioning training.
I became a personal trainer and sports massage practitioner after changing my own body shape and rehabilitating two serious back injuries. Frustrated by my body breaking down, I wanted to learn how tostop this from happening and then decided to change career, re-train and qualified as a personal trainer in September 2005.
