Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist | Clackamas Assitant Manager, Outreach Manager
Hi, I am Amanda Matthews. I have always faught obesity, as early as 7 years old, and after seeing how much can happen in one person's life (26 years so far!), I have gained a true passion for helping people believe in themselves and show them dreams really CAN come true! You just have to put up a fight!
I've been through it all. As a kid it was fat camps, counselors, diets, nutritionists, doctors, and even locks on the food cabinet doors. As I got older, I took it into my own hands and accelerated to diet pills, starvation methods, weight-loss "systems", and punishing myself with rediculous workout expectations. I topped out at 213 lbs.
I finally learned HOW to eat with a reason behind it, and that meant EVERYTHING for me; I wanted to love my life, myself, and have the energy to do it! I became a Salsa and Ballroom Dance Instructor for 5 years and was invited to open for the Dancing With the Stars tour, I became a skilled bartender for 4 years, I learned how to surf, I learned Mui Thai Boxing, I bought a motorcyle and became an experienced rider, I've trained for 5k, then 8k and 1/2 marathons, I ran the Portland Urban Iditerod, I now travel somewhere new every year, and I discovered my love-hate relationship for golf.
Max Muscle is the newest chapter of my life, and through their education and products, I continue to reach even higher. I started my journey at 213 lbs, and now Im LIVING at 145 lbs strong. We are only given one body, so take care of it!
