20184665_177151746157742_5942576240337616896_nG’day! My name’s Matt, I’m 19, a Type 1 Diabetic, and I am absolutely in love with all things Fitness and Tanks. My first online presence was through Instagram, where I have built up a solid following through posting about getting stronger with an illness designed to make you weaker. Now I post regularly on YouTube and of course here, at Heavily Armoured.

I went to the gym for the first time at around the age of 16. The first time I went to gym, I had a Personal Trainer guide me through – and absolutely destroy all of my limbs through muscle soreness. For days I could barely move my upper body. For me, it was an absolute turnoff. I didn’t return for ages, thinking I was just bad at it, but more importantly, not having the motivation to change my flabby fat body. A few months later when I was 17, my dad took me to a hotel’s gym in Vietnam where I managed to dumbbell press 4kg on each arm for only a few reps. Getting that tiny workout pump in my body was enough to get me hooked, and I’ve been training ever since.

My role here at Heavily Armoured will be to stick to mainly the World of Tank’s content, although I will chip-in now and then to the fitness side of things. I’ve been playing World of Tanks since 2012, and have been raging ever since! I truly hope you all enjoy this site, and can learn some useful things here. See you around!
