I was under Anita’s care and it was a very fruitful time for me. We have worked together for over half a year. She helped me get through my first trainings, taught me the right technique and, above all, listening to my own body. She prepared training plans and diet to meet my needs, focusing on the growth of muscle tissue. And with this vast knowledge, she is a wonderful and warm person who never refuses to help. I recommend her with all my heart!
I had the pleasure of meeting Matt and getting to him on the recommendation. Our first meeting made a very positive impression on me. Matt devoted an hour to a thorough interview, analysis of the situation in such small muscular-anatomical-dietetic-health details, what comes from what and logically results in that I immediately felt that I could fully trust his professionalism. A fully personalized approach, care and full support. There are many trainers on the market, but such a trainer is worth everything that every Matt’s client will notice very quickly, will admit me and appreciate it! I highly recommend it and thank you!
After 1.5 years of hard training, I managed to get into a form of life. It wasn’t easy and I had to change a lot in my nutrition and training. Despite the stress at work, various health problems (discovered by Anita), thanks to hard work and the help of wonderful people from Iron Nation, who provided me with super professional advice, I did it! Anita Płóciennik from Iron Nation, thank you for everything! You are the best coach! I am your best walking advertisement. THANK YOU!
Trainers who told me that I had to “stick to diet” and sent copy-paste training plans, completely unsuited to my needs and possibilities, I had few in my life. Luckily. It is not difficult to see how uneven and dominated by trained enthusiasts this industry is. And I was looking for professionals! I came across Miss Anita by accident, brazenly looking for a trainer / engineer (yes!)! That phrase took me straight to the Iron Nation. I wanted to work with someone who has the right background and knowledge to lead the demanding (and difficult) client I am! Our first conversation was different! Miss Anita turned out to be the proverbial sea breeze, believe me, this breeze gains thanks to this comparison. A tailor-made training program and arranged with the same care, diet and supplementation plan, were preceded by a request to perform a series of tests, an analysis of my possibilities, needs and expectations. I felt taken care of, saw the devotion and appreciated Miss Anita’s individual approach to the client. We acted as a team, my goals were our goals! The formula of our cooperation was really crisis-proof! I have known Miss Anita for 6 years, I trust her recommendations, advice and training. With a clear conscience and joy, I recommend it to anyone who wants to take care of their body healthily and in an absolutely harmonized way (without abandoning the precious psyche)! It’s worth it!
Matt – awesome coach, motivator, bodybuilding virtuoso 🙂 If you want to achieve your dream physique and you don’t know how to go about it, if you’ve been training for a long time and you don’t see the results, it’s a sign that something is wrong. Write to Matt and he’ll help you do what you cannot achieve! At the beginning of our cooperation, I was a bit skeptical, but with each week, when the form improved, I decided to trust him 100% and I will tell you that it has paid off 🙂 The form is getting sharper every week. For 6 weeks of our cooperation, my approach has changed for 180° training, his knowledge + my diligence and work = success 🙂 So don’t hesitate, write to him and start transforming! Each day of delay slows down the achievement of your goal!
I highly recommend working with Matt. A great trainer with wide practical and theoretical knowledge as well as a positive attitude. The trainings were carefully written and – most importantly – interesting, because when I was exercising at home, my 9-year-old daughter often joined me and we exercised together. After a month of following Matt’s guidelines, I finally managed to get pregnant and I am sure that a well-balanced diet and exercise helped.
Maciej has extensive knowledge of the full spectrum of fitness and diet. In his work, he combines the elements of mobilization, strength, endurance and healthy eating. In my coaching, we focused especially on strength training. I can honestly confirm his outstanding know-how in the proper technique of performing each exercise. Not only for simple machine exercises, but also for complex multi-joint exercises, such as bench presses, squats, deadlifts, and rows, so it’s a great opportunity for me to have someone with me who controls my form especially when applying heavy loads. Matt has the right approach in the full range of functional training as well as stabilization and coordination training. We analyzed my weak links (e.g. my deltoid muscles) and solutions to improve symmetry and posture. Coaching is tailored to the client’s needs – everything can be freely asked, and in terms of anatomy, I believe that he is as competent as a physiotherapist (he has knowledge not only about muscles, but also about their interaction, e.g. with joints and tendons). Similarly, in bodybuilding, Matt follows a natural and sustainable approach for life-long training. In each training session, I received at least one really good piece of advice that gave me a lot (in many compound exercises, these are often minor adjustments to increase strength, such as performing an external rotation in a given body position). Also for experienced athletes, he has new, proven ideas that will bring some “fresh air” to your program. In my gym, this is definitely a person that I would recommend to others.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Matt since 2018. I’ve been serious about exercising for most of my life and I’m extremely committed to my training so it was very important to me that I had a trainer who guides me with patience and support. Maciej has extensive knowledge in every aspect of fitness, health and nutrition, he’s very enthusiastic and pushes you to do better and better every time. He’s listening to your concerns and explaining everything in details, strongly supporting at anytime. As for my goals, I had to make my upper body wider while keeping low the body fat. After the first 2 years of training with Matt, the result are clearly visible – my upper body is now well developed and I definitely increased the size of the shirts without having to change the size of the pants 🙂
I started working with Anita in June 2019. From the very beginning I felt an amazing thread of understanding with my new trainer. Anita is an open, cheerful person, and at the same time she is extremely professional. She listens to the needs of her pupils, adjusts the training program to the client’s individual abilities, gender, body structure, chronic diseases and goals. What is extremely important to Anita is the health of her pupils. During training, she can quickly find the causes of past failures, she has extensive knowledge on dietetics, hormonal disorders and eating disorders. She can – apart from creating a perfectly matched training program – create a nutrition plan and advise on supplements. For me as a doctor, it is important that as I progress in training, lose body fat and improve physical performance – she regularly sends me for periodic blood tests so that she can modify the training plan if necessary. What I admire in Anita, apart from full professionalism and extraordinary personality, is the fact that she can fantastically motivate both during and outside training. She cares not only about the physical side of his pupils, but also the psychological side. And you can never hide anything from her – she will always know when I cheat and eat something that I shouldn’t 😉 Thanks to working with Anita, I lost 18 kg, and my figure is getting closer to my ideal, which we are still working on. After an hour of training with Anita, I want to move mountains, and thanks to the effects of her work, I started to believe that everything is possible. I can’t imagine working with another trainer ever again! I’m ready to follow her to the end of the world 😉 and I recommend working with Anita with a clear conscience 🙂
I highly recommend working with Matt. He made the impossible possible and made training in the gym not a challenge that is difficult to mobilize for me, but a great pleasure without which I cannot imagine a satisfying week. His knowledge, preparation, individual approach and properly prepared plans allow you to sculpt the body at an incredible pace, and his great personality, understanding, kindness, smile and natural professionalism build a sports spirit and a lot of great motivation. Thank you, Matt!
Cooperation with Matt is one of my best life choices 😉 I owe him my constant desire to build a beautiful figure and constant motivation to persistence and consistency. Matt is a trainer who has enormous knowledge and is able to pass it on to the mentee. Full professionalism and peace. And he is simply a fantastic and kind person – training with him is a nice “torment” 😉 From a pure heart, I recommend him to anyone who really cares about combining a beautiful body and well-being.
Everyone goes to gym for different reasons. Whether it’s losing weight or gaining muscle, the way to do that is often long and winding. It’s then vital to have somebody that could show us the shortest, easiest and most of all safest way to achieve our goal and maintain that. To me that person is Matt. We’ve worked together since early 2019. From the very beginning Matt has been very professional and committed. He has gathered a vast research on my health, past injuries and my approach to training. Based on that, he has created a tailor-made exercise program, nutrition and supplementation plan. I imagined that it would all be very difficult at the beginning. Far from it! I was actually surprised how quickly we clicked and that even demanding weight trainings could be quite pleasant! Matt pays a great deal of attention to safety. During a training session he watches closely and, if necessary, corrects the technique. Additionally, he systematically but very reasonably raises the bar and motivates me to achieve constant progress. Sometimes I think that Matt knows my body better than I do. Every time I feel I can’t do another rep, Matt helps me and says I’m going to make it. Funny that he’s almost always right 🙂 If I were to sum up my cooperation with Matt in 5 words, I would choose: safety, commitment, determination, professionalism and sense of humour. Are you ready to work out regularly? If so, satisfaction is guaranteed! 🙂
I worked with Anita for several months. Very good contact, individually written diet, supplementation and training plans, with an overview of exercises, as well as short instructional videos. I have been running for several years around 1500-2000 km a year, cycling for 6 years, usually 3,000-5,000 km per year. Anita showed me very clearly that strength training is necessary for running or cycling. I definitely recommend working with Anita.
Cooperation with Matt is a new quality that I didn’t know before. During 8 months of cooperation, I was able to improve my weak muscle parts, reduce 18 kg of body fat and permanently change my eating habits. A properly created training plan saved my shoulders from injuries that regularly accompanied me during my cooperation with other trainers. Professionalism, substantive knowledge and high efficiency of cooperation make me recommend Matt 100%. What’s more, Matt is a really nice guy! 😉
I collaborated with Iron Nation for a year with excellent results. Trainer Matt is a really professional and devoted person to his job. Matt has exceptional knowledge about training techniques. He’s really detail-oriented and materials provided by him are complete. Diet and trainings are tailored to aim a healthy body transformation. He is willing to reply to any concerns about training plans. During our collaboration I was sure to get a well studied, individual plan every time. I recommend Matt and Iron Nation to everyone who’s seeking for a body transformation. I would like to emphasize that I was very pleased with our cooperation. I love gym, I love sport in general and I have to admit you have inspired me to get some knowledge of my own. Don’t change!
I can honestly recommend Matt as a personal trainer. Before the first consultations, I exercised for a few years with shorter or longer breaks, but only later did I understand how important, apart from the physique, is health itself, i.e. good nutrition and looking at the body as a whole, and not just breaking records in the gym. Previously, I used to eat sweets every day as a “supplement” to my daily diet, now I do it sporadically, which is also thanks to Matt and introducing sweet replacements in the diet. Besides, whenever a question arises, I can count on a quick and really reliable answer (even in the late evening hours 🙂 ).
I have found Matt to be extremely knowledgeable about nutrition and anything to do with diet and efficient training. I consulted Matt on all essential for me aspects of nutrition – especially important for a woman over 40. I trust his advice. His comprehensive approach combined with in depth, individual assessment make him a great dietitian and coach. He firmly believes in eating right and using the highest quality nutritional supplements available, thereby giving his clients the ability to quickly achieve and maintain their personal health and training goals, as well as a healthier and better quality of life.
I found Iron Nation on recommendation and after exchanging few messages I was sure that I found the right professional. I came across him as a person who was not very fat anymore, but needed that final touch to be completely happy… and we did it! The complexes are gone and for the first time in my life, and I’m 38 years old, I went outside without a shirt and it felt great. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MATT!
Anita is an extremely professional person, fully involved in the training of her pupils. She has impressive knowledge and vast experience, which allows her to apply adequate training solutions even in very difficult cases. She has great empathy and understanding of the problems and challenges encountered during training or sports activities, by anyone who exercises seriously or has health problems. Anita is an extremely nice person to be around and, like no other, knows how to motivate her pupils to work hard. She never gives up on achieving her goal! It has been no surprise then that the training plan and diet that she developed for me enabled me to meet all my training goals, despite the fact that I started training with huge backlog in every respect. Thanks to her procedures and recommendations, I went through a real metamorphosis that I cared so much about. It is with great pleasure that I write these words and recommend Anita’s trainings to anyone who values real, reliable work and commitment as well as dynamic trainings in a great atmosphere.
My journey with Iron Nation. After one year of a solid cooperation with Matt I can honestly speak about how this experience brought positive impacts to my physique, endurance and most importantly – expanded my knowledge about muscular development, body movement and nutrition. For me what is important when hiring any type of service, is to make sure that they are provided at a certain professional level. Matt right from the start when we met, proved to have a vast amount of experience and to be someone to whom you can trust to achieve your fitness goals. When it comes down to the details, all the training plans, workout sessions and diets are meticulously planned and tailored to each person, taking into consideration lifestyle and profession. Everything is designed for a given amount of weeks, changing every time according to how the body develops, looking forward to long term goals and taking into account weak links to strengthen them in my overall physique. Every time anyone asks me about Matt, I can only say how satisfying my experience is, as the effects are visible month after month. I am asked many times what to do to achieve great physique, and then I recommend Matt. 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

Matt Osytek conducted my trainings, the aim of which was to return to form after a break of several years. I am pleased to recommend this trainer, because he has enormous practical knowledge both in the field of training methodology and in dietary matters. He relies on his own personal experience, modern training practices and the latest scientific research. Most importantly, Matt has endless patience, supports his mentees in times of crisis or when doubts arise.
I’d like to truly recommend Matt. His professionalism is astonishing. He takes care of me any time. He’s always ready to help no matter what.
I’ll never forget how much he helped me improve my nervous system. I feel incredibly energised and ready to train looking forward better results every day continuously. I’m a MMA fighter and never had a personal trainer so focused on my profession. Total perfection!
After a long break from the gym, at the beginning of 2019, I returned to regular training. I have developed several different methods that I have practiced in previous years. It seemed that I was eating healthily, exercising regularly, and in six months’ time I would be enjoying my life. Unfortunately… the effects were mediocre at best. In September I met Matt. He offered me cooperation. He noticed my struggle and wanted to help me. He assured me that under his care my effects would be healthy and – most importantly – visible. He planned a diet, training and supplementation for me. I also received many additional documents and guidelines. After 4 months of our cooperation, I am very pleased. My workouts are changed periodically, so there is no chance that boredom will creep in, my diet is updated on a regular basis, I can also always count on full support. My weight while maintaining muscle mass, went from 85 kg to 79 kg, and finally my abs are showing. I recommend working with Matt, because he is a professional, has the right approach and the most important thing for me… he always has time for his pupils. Coach, thank you very much for your full support and we keep pushing!
As a person who had several trials and diets from various specialists and trainers behind me, I was very skeptical about the next cooperation. Despite the initial doubts, it turned out that I finally came across a professional who shares his knowledge and extensive information. Matt was the first to write me dietary recommendations in the form of a chart, not a weekly menu, in a very clear and simple way that I could adapt to my palate. The decision to work with Matt was the best decision I have made! Full support, individual approach, lots of valuable advice, and motivation! Currently, as a person who is more aware, stronger and self-confident, I can say that the trainer’s commitment and understanding the client are key to achieving success. Thank you very much 🙂
Dedicated to Anita… “Man builds himself a solid fence from everything possible. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE, I CANNOT, I SHOULD NOT… And then he looks over that fence and envies those who live in freedom”. I was skeptical about a significant improvement in form at my age. Especially because of my time constraints and the nature of my profession. However, if I could convince myself of the effectiveness of the training plan used, then it’s all thanks to Anita. Fully individual approach, training and tailor-made diet. Consistency and training requirements, which go hand in hand with constant development control and supported by medical analysis, gave amazing results after just a few months. The very implementation of cyclical training and an orderly diet plan contributed to the achievement of a completely different level of nutritional awareness and the view of a healthy lifestyle. If you can recommend a personal trainer with a clear vision, determination and energy in action, and above all based on the natural development of the body and mind, all paths should lead to Anita. You dispelled my doubts. You made a different man. Thank you. But that’s not all – we haven’t said the last word yet!
For several years I’ve tried to work out in the gym by myself – the effects were mediocre. I found all sorts of plans on the Internet that I tried to follow. Without much results or effect. I also didn’t know how to approach my diet. In the end I was always tired, and the results were not visible. The enormity of information and approaches to training that I found on the Internet were not only mutually exclusive, but also didn’t bring the intended effect – better life, appearance, well-being – because that’s what it’s all about. Finally, when I ended up on the operating table for knee surgery, which also involved a long rehabilitation, I was in the worst form of my life (4 months of lying down and let’s face it – eating). I had a lot of pounds of fat to shed and no idea how to do it. So I directed my steps to Matt and decided that I would follow his guidelines carefully. What was my surprise when, after a year, many pounds down, I was in a shape that I didn’t think would ever be available to me. The changes that took place with my body were phenomenal. The key, however, was not to cheat and to follow the plan diligently. The trainings were certainly prepared especially for me, arranged according to my abilities (not a program created once and then distributed to each client). How do I know that? Because the program took into account my limitations, weaker and stronger sides, injuries or the lack of specific machines in my gym – which is a very professional approach for me. I can certainly recommend cooperation with Matt and Anita to everyone, but you must remember that if you don’t follow the guidelines they indicate, you can’t count on the effects from heaven. However, if you follow the program, the results will be electrifying.
