Mentorship Programs

“We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.”

Luciano De Crescenzo

Mentorship is available in a regular (weekly / monthly) structured form, or in an ad hoc, as-and-when form.  Mentoring may also be taken as one-to-one or group sessions*.  And, of course, this can be done face-to-face or remotely.

mentor-menteeOther forms of mentorship may include shadowing or having Matt consult for a guest clinic at your place of work.


Examples of topics Matt has mentored colleagues on include:

  • Program Design Principles
    • Acute exercise variables (learning more about reps, sets, loads, tempo & rest periods).
    • The importance of micro- through to mega- periodisation cycles.
    • Balancing anabolic and catabolic stresses, and application of attractor states in training.
  • Client / Patient Guidance:
    • Some patient cases can be so complex it seems impossible to know where to start… this is where Matt has the systems, know-how & experience to help you
    • Often challenging cases may benefit from a second set of eyes to ensure nothing is being missed and the top priorities are addressed first; this can be difficult if the conditions are unfamiliar or complex.
  • Business Challenges
    • With 20+ years of experience in running various businesses, Matt has a broad range of resources to draw upon.
    • Managing people, projects or finances are all topics Matt has mentored clients on for many years.
    • Establishing legacy, purpose and other motivating forces in the workplace.

“Mentorship with Matt Wallden is the best decision and most economical support i have done for my business. Matt provides a honest opinion whilst guiding me through new information and research that i can then internally apply. As a small business owner it can be very isolating and it’s important to get feedback and support with challenging complicated client cases. It’s incredible value for money and i have the confidence to push myself more and reach higher towards my goals, legacy and through the CHEK system itself. I am really happy with his down to earth approach and ability to deal with average Joe. He keeps everything simple for me to understand and his language is not too complicated. I love it as we go at my pace. He is very patient with me, non judgemental and has a very professional approach”.

Just wanted to write you and thank you for your help and guidance you have given me with my clients. It has been so good to have someone I can contact for guidance with complex cases and your knowledge and expertise has been greatly appreciated and invaluable, especially the speedy responses to my questions. It’s always well worth the financial investment for your consultation. You truly are Professor Wallden.

Matt’s mentoring was excellent! His knowledge in both the Chek aspects of the human body as well as his knowledge from his field as an Osteopath helped me look at things from a different perspective. I am really looking forward to our next mentoring session as all that I gained from the first session has already had a positive impact on how I work with my own clients.

training gearWe offer options to suit multiple budgets from high-end prestige packages at just over £3K per month, through to packages at just over £150 per month*.  The higher-end packages are suited to those who have the resources and the drive to work intensely on themselves across the course of program.  Often these are professional athletes, aspiring athletes or those with major health challenges, recurrent injury or persistent pain.  The lower-end packages tend to work better for those on a more limited budget, who are serious about optimising their health, working on weight-loss, regular back pain, or correcting niggles or more acute (short-term) injuries.  All packages include weekly coaching.  To view some illustrations of Package commitments you can make, click here.
