Early life of Matt Morsia

When he was a child, Matt loved doing sports and playing outside. He developed a passion for football, dreaming of representing England as a pro football player. His parents signed him up for football training, and soon after, he played competitively. Once he grew older, his passion slightly changed as he recognised his strengths and weaknesses. He switched from football to athletics and did very well. He enjoyed the training and proudly represented the English athletics team in competitions.

Athletic career of Matt Morsia

Matt’s dream was to represent England in the Olympics in the triple jump, which was his strongest discipline. He worked hard and got close to actually being picked for the Olympics team. But unfortunately, Matt got injured during practice. It may be a coincidence or an outcome of overtraining, but nether less, he got a prolapsed disc in his spine. Due to his condition, Matt had to quit athletics.

To cope with his emotions and to rehabilitate from the injury, Matt started visiting the gym. He didn’t plan on quitting sports any time soon, and training was supposed to help relieve his pain. Matt regularly went to the gym and soon realised he enjoyed it quite a lot. He decided to change his life and, at the same time, his body. Matt started to research the best exercises to build muscle and began lifting weights. What kept him going was a chance to compete again, this time in a bodybuilding competition. He managed to achieve this goal in 2016 when he competed at European Powerlifting Championship. He realised it was all worth it when he left with a silver medal on his neck.

He was getting a lot of support and realised that he might be doing it as a full-time job. Even though his wife wasn’t happy about it at the beginning, she wanted him to do what he loved. Matt started doing YouTube full-time on his MattDoesFitness channel, and soon he got very popular. People not only enjoyed his fitness advice but also loved to listen to him.
