First, thank you for visiting AndreaLaurenFitness.com!
My name is Andrea Lauren Maher, and it's my mission in life to empower and help women just like you transform into their best ever versions of themselves. Can we just get to know one another quick?
“You’re unworthy, hopeless… a failure.”
For the longest time, those were the words that consumed my thoughts—all day…every day. I would avoid the mirror because I was afraid to see myself and what I had (rather, what I had not) become.
On the outside, I had it together - a college degree, friends, designer clothes, a new car, and even a bubbly smile. But on the inside…I wasn’t comfortable in my own skin.
I began heavily drinking to feel comfortable in whatever social situation I was in. I would follow up an evening of drinking by binging on junk food – the cycle continued. I had become someone I didn’t recognize - 30lbs overweight, hungover every day, addicted to pills, depressed, anxious and in a huge amount of debt. This is not who I wanted to be…
I would vow to start managing my money better, eating healthier, stop drinking so much, work out more, and start dating men who treated me better… but after a few days, I would give up.
I didn’t love myself. I couldn’t look people in the eye. My body was crying out for me to make a change. None of my clothes fit, I was barely making ends meet… and then there was that pivotal moment. After lots of trial and error, I went from “I want to change” to “I NEED to change!”
"Finally, I had decided - I am WORTH IT!"
I took another chance at starting over. I declared bankruptcy to wipe out the crazy debt I’d accumulated. I started working out and eating healthy. I quit drinking altogether. I started hanging out with a different circle of friends. I was finally able to look people in the eye when I spoke to them… and little by little I started to feel better about myself. One day at a time.
As my life started to straighten out, one healthy choice at a time, I lost the extra weight and became a bikini competitor. I left my corporate job and received my Personal Training Certification.
I met my soul mate – the absolute love of my life.
Together we have a beautiful daughter who is now 2 1/2 and I just gave birth to twin boys a few months ago!!
My life continues to blossom into this amazing journey.
My career with AndreaLaurenFitness.com has included:
monthly online membership club
specialized target area programs
small group training
1:1 personal training
fit pregnancy program
I have been honored to inspire thousands of women to lose weight and feel great about themselves inside AND out. Looking back, my clients have gained so much more than the bodies they wanted to live in… they have improved their life as a whole.
Gaining confidence, finding your soul mate, getting married or engaged, becoming pregnant, landing your dream job… it’s like a butterfly effect of positive changes.
It is never too late to have that life you want!
You’re never too old, too overweight, too far gone… there is always a way, but it takes YOU realizing that the pain (of not living the life you want in the body you want) is WORSE than being comfortable where you are.
I have made it my mission to help people just like you start feeling better about themselves by committing to a realistic, healthy fitness & living plan.
I really appreciate you visiting my site and want you to know that if you ever have any questions I am always here to help! I look forward to hearing from you!
