Popular fitness YouTuber, Matt ‘MattDoesFitness’ Morsia, has given fans a sneak peek into his $650k+ house renovation, complete with his very own home gym.

MattDoesFitness is a name synonymous with the YouTube Fitness industry. Having been in the game since 2013, Morsia has built a sizable following of almost two million subscribers.

The Gymshark athlete will often post videos on ridiculous eating challenges to absurd feats of strength. Having collaborated with the likes of Eddie Hall and Ross Edgley, Matt often finds himself taking on any obstacle — from swimming in a frozen lake to strongman training.

But the star of the show, no doubt, is his son Luca, who often features in the opening segments of a video as part of a skit. And the theme remains much the same in their $650,000 house tour video.

Matt will often set himself absurd eating challenges, like keeping up with strongman Brian Shaw’s diet.

MattDoesFitness unveils £500k+ house plan

Back in early June 2020, Matt made the plunge and snagged his new house. Shortly after, fans had a tour of the house, but he’s since remained silent about his plans to make changes to the property.

Now, Morsia has gone into detail about the changes coming in the next few months. And aside from the existing home gym (which was finalized back in August), it looks like the vast majority is being repurposed into an ultra-modern, open plan house.

Complete with a slide and climbing frame (yes, that’s right), MattDoesFitness explained how they’ll be looking to knock down the majority of the walls and completely revamp the house to suit their modern look.

Of course, he estimates the project will set them back north of $650,000 — and it’s easy to see why, with all of the structural changes being made.

Naturally, this will serve as the ‘before,’ and the finished product will likely be showcased on Matt’s channel as and when the massive project is finished.

Ninja, TheGrefg, Loserfruit & Lachlan assemble for historic Fortnite Icon stream

Ninja, Loserfruit, Lachlan, and TheGrefg are the mega popular streamers behind Fortnite’s first batch of Icon Series skins and all four of them just grouped up for a historic livestream.

January 16 marked the reveal of Fortnite’s first Icon Series skin. Ninja kicked things off with the new line of streamer-based skins. Fans had been eager to play as their favorite personalities in-game for years, and the Icon Series would pave the way for just that.

Loserfuit came next in June 2020. Followed by Lachlan in November 2020 and most recently, Grefg in January 2021. With all four now out in the wild, the streamers responsible all joined forces for a history Fortnite session.

Grefg and Ninja were the first two in the lobby.

“It was your free day right?” Grefg asked Ninja, who wasn’t intending to go live on January 17. “Correct,” Ninja responded. “But I couldn’t pass up this opportunity.”

Both Lachlan and Loserfruit had to make some sacrifices for the special moment as well. They were both playing from Australia on 220 ping but were more than happy to do so for the huge occasion.

All four players dropped into their first match wearing their respective Icon Series skins. It marked the first time in Fortnite history that they were all in the same lobby, let alone on the same team.

“Alright guys, this is an ‘iconic’ moment,” Ninja said as all four icons gathered to heal up. “Everyone has their own skin,” Lachlan followed up. “That’s crazy to think about.” 

Collectively the squad boasts over 57 million subscribers on YouTube, with millions more supporting them across Twitch, Twitter, and other platforms. It’s undeniably one of the biggest powerhouse teams to ever drop into a game of Fortnite.

Naturally, their first game together was an emphatic win.

Not only did they get the victory with ease, but they even taunted their final enemy. Boxing the last player in and emoting at the same time to add insult to injury.

Given the time zone differences and the ping difference between them, it’s likely this is a one-off spectacle.

When future Icon Series skins are added, we could see new star-studded quads joining forces. But for now, this will go down as the most iconic Fortnite team yet.
