We caught up with Matt Fiddes, fitness entrepreneur and Michael Jackson’s former personal bodyguard.
My car of choice
I have had pretty much every car there is to have since I was 17! But I do love my Ferrari’s! Now I have six kids though! The sports cars have been replaced with 7 seaters which normally get trashed as you can imagine. I would not have it any other way though! I do miss my super cars though!
My favourite holiday destination
I have seen a lot of the world with my background. You cannot beat the Maldives though! Amazing place and a real paradise! I relax there more than anywhere else. I am happy to go anywhere though as long as my wife and 6 children are with me.
My gadget I can’t live without
My i Phone! Nowadays I literally run my business from it! Gone are the days where I was stuck behind a computer for hours and hours. I can work wherever I am which has opened lots of opportunities in the business world.
My go to fashion brand
I am not really into labels to be honest, I am a bit unusual in that sense. Apart from when I have to dress up for events you can normally find me in my MF branded clothing range! Due to the nature of our industry I am big into tracksuits and trainers. To be honest, I am happy to wear anything including Primark!
My airline of choice
I have had the opportunity to take a lot of private jets and you can’t beat that! I even went in Concorde once! Private luxury jets is the ultimate but it is not very sustainable and I would now think twice about my travel choices.
My favourite watch brand
I love Rolex. I have treated myself to a few in the past but nowadays I don’t buy new ones. I have a favourite I wear every day and that suits me just fine. I am not one for being flash. I normally wear what every my kids give to me for Christmas!
My favourite restaurant
I like to eat healthy. So Wagamama is my favourite restaurant choice! I go there at least twice a week and the whole family like the food so it is a no brainer. When you have young children it is important to find a restaurant that works for the family as a whole.
My guilty pleasure
I am partial to a glass of red wine. It helps me wind down after a busy and stressful day at work.
I also love hotels! I feel more at home in hotels than at home.. because I have spent so much time in them since I started my career at 18 years old travelling extensively to build up my franchise business which is now in 1,000 locations world-wide!
My favourite way to give back
I do a lot for families and causes in need. I pay for life-saving operations to medical treatments but I prefer to keep them confidential as it is a private matter for the family involved. If I can help I will.
