Hi! My name is Matthias, I live in Belgium. I was born with Cerebral Palsy. It's already been an arduous journey searching for what works best for me. Through countless hours of physiotherapy, aqua therapy, botox treatments, and multilevel surgery, I can live the life I do now. Even though I have a congenital disability, I don't know what it is like to live without CP. Sometimes, I have a hard time accepting my condition.
Sports have always helped to sort out my frustrations and give all my emotions their place. I started playing wheelchair basketball when I was 12 years old. Soon after, I started with wheelchair rugby where I had the chance to play for the Belgian national team. Later I stopped playing wheelchair rugby to focus more on strength training at the gym. I wanted to know more about fitness and wanted to be a personal coach. So I followed coaching courses and I have recently become an adaptive and inclusive trainer. I really hope I'll be able to help people with any kind of disability in their fitness journey, regardless of their ability.
