THE WEIGHT LOSS PODCAST ACADEMY COACHES
Matt Wolfs - Head Coach and co-host of The Weight Loss Podcast
“All I knew for the first 30 years of my life was being trapped in an obese body, hating everything about myself and medicating myself with food and alcohol.
I was diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes before something snapped.
I stopped waiting for someone else to do it for me, stopped buying into my own excuses, got the help I wanted and turned my life around.I've lost 80kg, 6 clothes sizes and have reversed Type-2 Diabetes. My mission is to help people like you change your life the way I've changed mine”
Courtney Ley - Assistant Coach and co-host of The Weight Loss Podcast
“I’ve been fat for most of my life. Growing up I’d always been the “big girl” in my group and was treated that way.Deep down inside I wanted to feel beautiful… attractive. I always dreamed of looking good in a bikini, but I thought it was never for me. I’d always be “the big girl”.
Something changed, and I decided not to accept this and see just what I could do for myself if I put my mind to it…and really put in the effort.I’d been a member at a local gym for years walking on the treadmill a few times each week going nowhere. I was really unhappy wasting my time and my money.
I got the help I needed and wanted. It’s been a frustrating, challenging, painful and tearful journey but it’s been worth every second. I sat around for years wishing it would happen but nothing did until I got off my butt and did something about it. I’ve lost 25kg, dropped 4 dress sizes and want to help others change their life the way I’ve changed mine”
Andrea Schilf - Assistant Coach and host of The MILFF Podcast
“I’ve struggled with my self-confidence and body image for as long as I can remember – all I ever wanted was to feel comfortable in my own skin”.
I used to hide behind big baggy t-shirts and shorts when going swimming, and never felt comfortable in front of my partner. I used to think “just eat less and exercise more”, and I would get to where I wanted to be – But it sadly it didn’t turn out that way, and instead I just felt exhausted and frustrated with a body shape I hated.
That was until I learnt how to get the body I wanted – but most of all keep it. Now being a mother and on the other side of 40, I have been able to to lose all my baby weight, sustain and improve my body image on only a handful of hours a week and I want to help other busy women achieve this too!”

"I started working with Matt and Courtney around 18 months ago. Since then I’ve lost around 100kg and have got back to doing something I love, which is working with and riding horses.
I would totally recommend them to anyone starting in my situation. I started at 180kg and had a lot to lose.
They helped me learn how to do it slowly and safely. I’d totally recommend them for anyone else who wants to get to a point where they’re healthy, happy and being the person they really want to be!”
Location - North Carolina, USA
"My current goals are to lose 2 clothing sizes so that I can fit back into my expensive dresses and feel confident about wearing a bikini.
I want to be able to see myself in pictures with my family without cringing because of my back fat. I want a nice round butt and a flat stomach.
I ride horses and I'm tired of being the fatty at the barn. Everyone else looks great and I look like shit. I feel really insecure about it, and being out of shape certainly affects my athletic performance.
I'm super pissed that I've spent so much of my life upset about my body. It sucks the joy out of my life sometimes because I feel so self conscious.
When I fail for the 500th time, I feel like absolute shit about myself. I hate feeling guilty because I'm not doing what I know I need to do.
I know I can do better but I haven't been able to get there. I'm tired of feeling out of control and I'm ready to make a permanent change."
Location - Queensland, Australia
"I want to feel better about myself. For years I've struggled with the ups and downs of yoyo dieting. I want to lose weight, gain muscle and tone my body.
I want to feel good again. I want to feel happy within myself. I want to fit back into my size 10 clothes and not feel so self conscious anymore.
I want to love my body again."
Location - Liverpool, UK
“Reach a point that causes you to really see yourself without the blinkers on, without a gross sense of entitlement, realising that you're not owed anything, that you have to fight harder than you think, that although you think you have tried you really haven't.
THAT is when you're ready to change.
I feel like that was my clarity. I didn't care what you would throw my way when I signed up because I knew MY way didn't work.
Took me 8 years to realise that”
Location - Queensland, Australia
“Over time working with both Matt and Courtney, I’ve learned that
with focus and a great support network around you, you can achieve
anything you want!
I gradually increased my food intake through the course of my
transformation and not only was I gaining more energy each day…my body
As I kept changing my confidence was growing and best of all my
anxiety struggles were becoming less and less frequent! It’s a rare
thing for me to have an anxiety attack now.
The injuries I had before I started? I wouldn’t even know I ever had them now. Getting stronger has helped in so many areas.
This whole journey has been so rewarding”
Location - Western Australia
“I’m in my 50's and I want to be happy healthy and fit. I want to be fit so I have the energy not only for daily life but so I can enjoy life.
I would like to retire at 60 and travel the world, but I'm worried about my health and if I can handle it”
Location - Victoria, Australia
“I can safely say this has been one of the best things I’ve ever done for my health and fitness!
I’ve learned so much about myself and my body, and my confidence has grown so much.
I’ve been taught habits that will help me forever, while overcoming a
lot of injuries such as a bulging disc where I was unable to sleep on
Now I can perform any exercise I want in the gym safely and effectively!
Without this program I would not be in the condition that I am today”
Location - Victoria, Australia
“My goal was to be in the best possible shape by the time I turned 30 (I was 28), so I had a 2-year timeline.
I’m a Trainer myself and I want to be a leader within my industry and set an example for my clients.
I’m really proud of what I’ve achieved. I’ve learned the tools that will enable me to keep getting better in the future! “
Location - New South Wales, Australia
“I needed someone to help me learn how to walk the walk.
I had an OK dad bod, but I needed a fit dad bod to be able to inspire my own clients (I’m a Trainer) and lead by example.
Most people now think I’m 10 years younger than I really am.
Would I recommend this? Hell yeah!”

Matt and Courtney co-host The Weight Loss
Podcast, a podcast downloaded in over 80 countries worldwide and
listened to by nearly a million people globally.
“Having gone through this journey
ourselves, we understand exactly what our clients will go through on the
path to their own transformation.
We’ve been in the health and fitness
industry a combined 16 years helping others achieve their goals. Our
approach is holistic, realistic, flexible and sustainable. No need for
diets, counting calories or marathon workouts.
your body and your life should be a fulfilling, rewarding and enjoyable
journey not an endless slog where you feel like you have to live in the
gym and be 100% strict on yourself to get a result. You don’t – we’ve
done it, you can too”
Host of The MILFF Podcast (Mums
intent on living fit ‘n fabulous), Andy is one of the busiest women
you’ll ever meet; mother, wife, business owner, coach, podcaster.
Having just recently given birth to her 2nd beautiful child at the
age of 42, Andy’s mission is to help as many mum’s as she can to help
get them into the best shape of their lives without having to use
exercise like a badge of honour or eating like a sparrow.
“This industry leads you to believe that you must do more and more,
and eat less to get the results you want, which for some (especially
mum’s), can lead to a lot of anxiety and stress because often this isn’t
possible or even desirable.
Having gone through this process now myself twice of getting my
pre-baby body back, I feel I can relate to the common and daily
struggles mum’s face, and guide them in a strategic and manageable way
that will have them not only looking their best, but also feeling their
absolute best as well.
I think as a woman first and a mum second, it’s important for us to
be able feel healthy, confident, sexy and strong so that we can show up
day in, day out and feel as though we can handle whatever is thrown at
us. I want women to feel unstoppable – and that all starts with learning
to love yourself again and regaining your confidence and body back
through a healthy and sustainable approach.”
Who we are looking to work with...
What we do isn't for everyone and anyone. Truth be told, most people aren't ready to do what is required to succeed long-term.
We're here to transform the lives of people who are truly ready to embrace positive change while saying no to the bullshit excuses that have held you back for too long. If the following description sounds like you, we want to hear from you!
You've struggled with your weight for way too long
You've tried diets, gym memberships etc and nothing seems to stick or work
You constantly struggle with "motivation"
It feels like you just don't have the time to do this even though you really want to
You're tired of the excuses you tell yourself and are ready to see what you're really capable of
You've been intimidated by gyms in the past and want the confidence and knowledge to walk into any gym in the world and know what to do, how and why
You don't know where to start and need someone who has been there and done it themselves to show you the way
Be willing to commit to 6 months (minimum) of accountability;
Be able to commit to 2-4 training sessions a week at your gym (we'll help you find one if you don't have one, and if you have a home gym then we can work with that!)
Be ready to step it up and really take your transformation to the next level
Who we are NOT looking to work with...
Please do not apply if...
You’re looking to solve years/decades worth of problems quickly
You’re looking for the next best diet after the last half a dozen didn’t quite work out
You are unwilling to leave your comfort zone
You’re looking to be told what to do rather than taught what to do
You are unwilling to accept and implement constructive feedback
You expect to be perfect and make no mistakes
You are not willing to train your adversity muscle to become a resilient person who succeeds regardless of the circumstances
You aren’t willing to trust in your coaches (who know what they’re doing) and the process (which has been proven to work countless times)
We are not afraid to say no. If we don't feel that you are a good fit for us, or vice versa, we will not waste your time or ours. We know exactly who we can and can't help.
The sad truth is that 99% of people wanting to lose weight are merely "interested" - they want all of the success while avoiding the hard work, and avoiding the things that have held them back for years. We've done it ourselves so we know it just doesn't work like that.
We only work with the 1% who are ready. Are you ready to be a 1%er?
