About Matthew Petersen

Matthew Petersen was a bit of a loner in his teenage years. At 15 years old, he started working out in the gym and realized that the other lifters were people he could rely on. One of his friends convinced him to compete in a bodybuilding show, after some persistence, and Matthew took up the challenge when he was 18 years old.

After that first show at 18, he fell in love with the sport. In 2015, Matthew started to compete at the national level. As he started competing more, he built a team around him to help with coaching, since he felt that one coach alone didn’t always have the answers he needed.

Matthew is hoping to bring home an IFBB Pro Card this year.
