ABOUT MATT LE VOI

WINTER MOUNTAIN LEADER / LEVEL 3 PERSONAL TRAINER / EXPEDITION LEADER

Matt has always led an active lifestyle, and even at college he was praised for his ability to play badminton, often running to the sessions, six days a week whilst revising for his exams. The desire to be active is so deeply rooted in Matt that becoming an outdoor instructor was such an ideal career choice. Matt has been working in the outdoor industry for over a decade and has run his UK based company Lakeland Mountain Guides for ten of those.  On top of UK based adventuring Matt also runs LMG Treks & Expeditions, through which he manages International Expeditions to amazing places such as Nepal and Morocco, often taking people to over 5000 or even 6000m. 

It is this combination Matt's experience as a leader, outdoorsman and fitness that drove Matt to complete his Level 3 Personal Training Diploma and UESCA Ultra Running Coach certification. It is Matt's aim to work with those wanting to improve their fitness for mountain adventures, as well as their general well-being. Whether you want to get fit for a trek to Everest Base Camp, to summit a mountain or just improve your fitness, Matt can help you on your journey to success. Matt s particularly keen to work with anyone working towards a High Altitude goal.
