Bring Me The Horizon's Matt Nicholls: "We have a personal trainer on tour with us"


Bring Me The Horizon's Matt Nicholls was recently interviewed by Music Radar, you can read some excerpts below.


About having a personal trainer on tour: "He’s out with us now. It’s just general working out. When we first started touring we were kids and we were just like, ‘Give me loads of beer, give me loads of food. It’s easy to get caught up in that, when you’re on tour anyway it can be hard to eat good. I put on weight and started looking like s**t to be honest with you."

He continued: "I started going to the gym a lot and I lost a lot of that. Then I stopped going, got back into drinking and was exactly the same again. Oli’s trainer at home, Tom, is our friend and we thought it would be a good idea to bring him out, and it’s been good. Everyone’s got into it, everyone’s looking better for it, feeling better for it. It’s easier when you’re on tour to get caught up in doing nothing but bad stuff, but it’s something we take seriously now."

He added: "If I don’t work out in the day and play a show I can feel groggy. If I work out it makes me feel good, my body feels ready. If I’m sat around all day doing nothing and I’ve eaten crap I feel sluggish. Working out makes you feel energetic and positive, and you take that on stage with you."
