Welcome to Muscle Matters, your ultimate destination for holistic well-being. Founded in 2020 by Barend, a certified Sports Massage therapist and Personal Trainer, our physical practice proudly opened its doors in Simon's Town in 2023, following years of successful mobile service provision. 

In addition to being a skilled Sports Massage therapist and Personal Trainer, Barend is also a qualified Pharmacist's Assistant, registered with the esteemed South African Pharmacy Council. This unique combination of expertise grants him an unparalleled understanding of medicine, supplements, and their impact on the human body, nutrition, and mental health. Barend's approach to training and massage is characterized by its gentle effectiveness, driven by his genuine passion for people and their well-being. 

Barend's profound knowledge has been cultivated through personal experience, having undergone his own transformative journey a few years ago. With a profound comprehension of weight management, diet, and exercise programs, he firmly believes in the mantra, "It is not what you eat, it is how much you eat." At Muscle Matters, we advocate a sustainable approach to managing weight, as quick fixes often lead to unsustainable outcomes. Barend himself lost over 20kg at a gradual pace, recognizing that starving the body to lose weight only results in eventual weight regain. 

At the click of a button, the path to a healthier and happier life begins. Muscle Matters is dedicated to helping you achieve your desired body and overall well-being. We firmly believe that you deserve the best, and our mission is to empower you on your journey to a healthier, fitter, and happier you.
