MattDoesFitness reveals $650,000 house renovation with home gym

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.

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.

On October 26, Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg responded to a glitch that omitted his YouTube channel from searches a few days before. The bug sparked widespread speculation that he had been “shadowbanned” by Google.

The YouTube community was rocked on October 19 when rumors began to spread that the platform’s largest content creator, PewDiePie, had been shadowbanned. However, it was quickly clarified to be a bug and his account was fixed.

The Swede addressed the drama in his first video back since the glitch. While the star believed that people were too quick to jump to conclusions about him being banned, he did have questions for Google as to why his channel was the only one affected.

PewDiePie responds to YouTube after “shadowban” glitch

Fans of the personality became concerned on October 19 when his channel disappeared from searches on YouTube. His latest video tanked in views as no one could see it without a direct link. Google then released a statement and said it was an error before fixing his channel hours later.

Responding to the incident, Pewds revealed that he didn’t think he was shadowbanned as his account had been having issues for days. “People started noticing my video wasn’t getting any views. And it just went everywhere. There was a bunch of news for it!” he said, before he joked, “Shadow ban! They creep from the shadows and they ban you!”

Despite not being overly concerned, Kjellberg did find it peculiar that it mainly impacted his channel and nobody else’s. “I didn’t think they shadowbanned me, I just assumed it was a glitch. But it begs the question, how does that happen? How did it happen? It didn’t happen to anyone else. I asked around.”

The popular entertainer later joked about YouTube trying to explain the glitch, after reacting to a fan submission on Reddit. “We shadowbanned our biggest creator! Yeah, yeah it was weird. It was weird, what in the world,” he said.

To add salt to the wound, Pewds celebrated his birthday on October 24, but instead of well wishes from fans, his subreddit was flooded with users concerned that he had been shadowbanned by Google. It should also be stated there is no confirmation that the company even does bans in this manner.

At the time of writing, the star’s account is back to normal, and his uploads are getting millions of views again. If nothing else, the incident shows just how many people love the 31-year-old entertainer. Viewers were quick to rally together for the content creator – further proof that Kjellberg is the king of the platform.
