Hard work pays off for muscle man Matt
SHEPTON Mallet man Matt Nixon believes that if you try hard enough you can achieve anything.
Around six months ago, he began a strict diet, followed by an intense training regime, based on help from the internet and Revolution Health and Fitness, in Shepton.
The 24-year-old, who puts his health kick-start down to relationship issues, said: “It went badly and instead of turning to booze, I just wanted to change how I looked and how I felt.”
The strict protein diet started when Matt gave up drinking and junk food and “the weight just fell off”.

Matt, who was the biggest he had ever been at just over 13st, said: “ I do feel better, I don’t feel any different, just better.”
During the diet, he lost two stone before going to the gym four months ago and putting on a stone in muscle.
He said: “I am definitely going to continue – I am never going back to how I was.”
Matt admitted, however, that his new lifestyle was very expensive, not just in healthy food but in new clothes.
“My 34 waist jeans don’t fit, I am now a 30. Nothing fits. I have gone back to clothes I wore when I was 18.”
Matt currently works at Right Price DIY, a family business, but has previously worked on cruise ships as an entertainer and in America as a wake boarding instructor.
“It is amazing what you can do if you put the work in, it is not easy but worth it when you get there.”
