After moving to Wests Tigers after an illustrious career with Manly-Warringah that included two premiership wins, Matt Ballin understands the importance of developing and upgrading your skills to ensure personal success.

Matt has already had a hugely successful career, both in the NRL and off-the-field where he started his own lucrative personal training business, M.B Fitness.

“Completing a traineeship allows you to learn in a supportive environment,” Matt said.

“Having that piece of paper allows you to seize a range of career paths.

“Gaining my certificate ensured I had the necessary skills to undertake further study and to start my own business in the fitness industry.”

Matt was an apprentice mentor in the NRL’s Trade UP with the NRL program where he provided support to players at the club as they start an Australian Apprenticeship.
