Inclusive Exercise Specialist
I'm Matt Brinkley, Director of Therapy Gyms Ltd and an Inclusive Exercise Specialist. I have been supporting people with disabilities and health conditions to exercise for over 10 years. I decided to do this following past experience as a support worker and an ethos to make fitness an accessible and inclusive experience. After several years as the go-to disability exercise trainer in Essex, I wanted to create more opportunities to engage more people in physical activity. So I created Therapy Gyms, opening an accessible gym near Colchester and providing exercise sessions online and in the community. I recently also founded a not-for-profit company called Making Fitness Accessible which has been created to fund community exercise programmes for people with disabilities across the UK. I love what I do and the opportunities I create from helping someone feel they are included, to helping someone walk again.
