Fitness & Fashion Model Matt Chambers Reveals Fitness Secrets
My favourite style of training is High Intensity. I enjoy the endorphins it produces. It is my form of meditation, stress seems to disappear. Also training this way gives results. I’m generally social but when I’m at the gym I’m focused.
What supplements…. depends on how much money is available …If I was richer I use more. Most important for me is the a pre workout drink. I enjoy my shot of caffeine before The type of supplements that I use depends on how much money I have available. If I had endless cash I would research and try everything once. The most important supplement for me is my pre-workout drink, which is a shot of caffeine (espresso?) However I do get my nutrients the old fashioned way…by eating properly. Currently I’m using a glutamine, pumpkin seed protein and whey protein.
I try to prevent myself from enjoying one exercise over another. I don’t select favourites because if I do, I perform them too often. It goes against my theory, which is always change it up. Having me pick a favourite is like asking me which of my children I love more… I love them all in different ways.
My Parents …
When I was young, my parents noticed that exercise helped me feel better when I was in a bad mood. They would challenge me with goals like running around a track ten times, in under 22 minutes. I would often go for jogs with my Dad. There were times when I didn’t want to go, but now I realize I was building the foundation for a healthy life and I’m glad I went. My Mother has always experimented with different diets, so I learned a lot about nutrition from her.
My diet is dependent on what’s going on. For instance, do I have a photo-shoot? Casting? Or am I getting ready for summer? It changes all the time.
Yesterday for lunch I ate a bunch of almonds, a protein shake, and a tin of spicy chilli tuna. For dinner I had broccoli, mashed potatoes , four pork chops, two chocolate bars and a V8 juice. I finished the day with a second protein shake before bed. Getting closer to summer I’m going to cut down to one chocolate bar and not eat before going to sleep. I also plan to reduce the amount of fat. It takes about five days of eating clean for me to get into shape.
Music for sure. I won’t workout without music. I will literally leave the gym if I forget my headphones. There is nothing like music with cardio to give yourself that extra push.
1) Ask people who are in great shape how they did it. Don’t be shy, and read as much material as possible from reputable sources like furiouslyfit.com If you have a question remember there is always a answer. Remember people love to talk about their passion.
2) Be consistent no matter what. I have been in this shape everyday for the past 11 years because I am consistent.
3) It is a combination of diet and exercise. I’m naturally overweight. When I was hitting the gym without a diet, I was spinning my wheels. It wasn’t until I learned about nutrition that I really got into shape.
I do have hundreds more but you only asked me for three.

My most challenging exercise has to be the bench press… your given a choice, conquer it or get hurt.
My daily workout routine in detail;
I work out between 5-6 days a week. ( I don’t enjoy my “off days” but I know the body needs a rest.)
I start with high intensity cardio to get the sweat going, followed by weights, where I target two muscle groups. I finish up with abs. I keep the intensity up throughout the entire workout
I keep my routine simple but change the exercises around for muscle confusion (what is muscle confusion
My biggest piece of advice is don’t over complicate things, just workout hard and eat healthy. Once you conquer this you can learn the finer aspects to fine tune your routine. Also don’t be intimated by the people in the gym, nobody’s there to judge, you have my respect when you walk through the door.
