Andrea Matthes, CPT

Life-changing writer, speaker, and coach

From 328lbs to Triathlete, Andrea Matthes transformed her life from the inside out and now teaches others how to create true lifestyle change (physically, mentally and emotionally) through workshops, group coaching and one-on-one consultations.

She is best known for her viral blog post, “10+ Reasons I Love My Ugly Body,” which has improved the way millions of women (and men) perceive food, fitness and their bodies. Andrea is a writer, personal trainer, lifestyle coach, and motivational speaker who added “Mom” to her title in April 2016.

With two boys (both toddlers!) triathlons are on hold for now. Her body is a bit larger and heavier (and a lot mushier) as life is basically sleepless nights, diaper changes and constant chaos, but that doesn’t stop her from doing her best to live a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Andrea’s 12 Rules for Living a Happy, Healthy I’mperfect Life are the foundation for her life and her coaching practice, providing a refreshing perspective on what it means to be happy and healthy. Starting with forgiveness, then moving on to food, fitness, self-care, and more, her rules promote self-love while also working towards self-improvement.

Compelling, inspirational and motivating– Andrea shares her personal story of struggles and triumph that will make your audience laugh, cry, and most importantly, feel empowered to let go of perfection and start living their best, happy, healthy I’mperfect Life.

“Andrea was a delight to work with from initial conversations to event wrap up. Her authentic personality and real-world experiences made her an audience favorite.

Her presentation is thoughtful, well-organized and offers tangible solutions for anyone’s situation. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.” Crystal Emerick, BraveStep.org
