Meet The Team
Johno Matlock Coach
Hey everyone, I’m Johno.
I joined Valesco as a member in October 2017 and decided to embark on the journey to becoming a Crossfit coach in May 2019 and I now hold a CF-L1 trainer certificate. I have lived in Bristol for 10 years, originally hailing from Hinckley in Leicestershire (the Midlands). Outside of coaching I am actively involved in the science start-up scene and can be found across the road from Valesco at the Science incubator Unit DX.
Pushing my physical boundaries to learn new skills, move better, quicker and to improve my overall health with new approaches to nutrition and diet have all happened as a result of joining Valesco in 2017. What I also gained along the way is an incredibly supportive community of friends and coaches who really care about everyone that is a part of Valesco. The inclusive approach that Crossfit and specifically the team a Valesco have created is a real treasure and one that I am incredibly happy to say that I am a part of.
Fun fact: I completed a PhD in organic chemistry so I can hook people up with liquid nitrogen ice cream on request
