Matt Cubbler is a devoted son, faithful husband, loving father, loyal friend, patriotic American, U.S. Army veteran, 25 year career cop, a relentless entrepreneur and a selfless servant to all of God's creations.
Matt Cubbler has always lived a life of sacrifice and dedication to others. From serving in the U.S. Army, to working as one of Pennsylvania's most renowned police officers, to donating his time speaking to teens and young adults about the importance of leadership in their lives, he has devoted his life to helping others through both his professional and personal life.
To him these things come naturally. Because after growing up as the son of a single mother and the brother of a mentally disabled teen who was often picked on, Cubbler always knew it was his calling to serve others. A month after graduating from high school, Cubbler's brother Andy died in a violent car accident. That moment would end up becoming the single most impactful moment in his life.
While he excelled academically in high school and had an opportunity to attend one of the four major military academies, he decided he was needed elsewhere and chose to enlist in the United States Army and served for four years as an Intelligence Analyst. His Army tour of duty took him from Augsburg, Germany to the Persian Gulf War.
After leaving the military as a highly decorated soldier, Cubbler began his career in law enforcement. Throughout his career, he has worked in almost every facet of law enforcement – uniformed patrol, investigations, under-cover narcotics, and SWAT. Shortly after "9/11," he answered the call to, once again, protect America against Islamic Extremists who were inflicting terror all over the world. He was one of only a few thousand select individuals (out of over 900,000 applicants) to be hired by the newly formed United States Federal Air Marshal Service.
In 2009, Cubbler got bit by the entrepreneurial bug and he launched his first company MaxOut, a unique fitness brand that owns a unique piece of patented strength training technology and owns and operates one-of-a-kind gyms utilizing this same technology. Over the past eight years, while still working full-time as a police officer, he has built MaxOut into a national brand that has helped thousands of people achieve strength and fitness levels unseen in the fitness marketspace.
Today, Cubbler is still a full-time police officer, the COO of MaxOut and a sought after public speaker who captivates his audiences through his personal story of struggle and triumph, his leadership training program based on his experiences as a soldier and his law enforcement officer and most importantly his life living with his best friend and brother whose life and death has inspired all that he has accomplished since that fateful day when Andy died in 1989.
One's role models in life are often found in the unexpected. The person who is our confidant and hero, or role model, may well be a teacher, parent, sibling, or friend who is appreciated too late. For me, my role model was my brother, Andy, who died too soon, at the age of twenty-one. Unexpected? Yes. Andy's story and my own as it unfolds will tell the tale of two brothers who were each other's' best friend. We had a childhood filled with love, joy, laughter, and sadness. Unfortunately for me, I was so busy being my "brother's keeper" that I never realized the phenomenal human being my brother, Andy, had become. It took Andy's death for me to realize the "role model" I had lost. Death stole my chance ever to say thank you while Andy was alive.
This memoir shares the emotions of a brother's love. Each of my life's accomplishments has in some way been shaped by my brother's life and the way he lived it. Born with a cloud over his head, Andy struggled to learn and to fit in. Born with a rainbow in his heart, Andy would love and be loved in a way that I finally came to understand too late. This memoir is my gift of gratitude to my hero and role model. May it inspire those who read it to express their appreciation to those people who have made them into who they are today. In my case, it is my brother, who I loved more than I ever knew. A Brother's Love is Andy's story and mine; it is a love story for all ages.
Pessimists might say MaxOut Strength Systems is cursed. Optimists—including Royersford, Penn.-based Jason Griggs and Matt Cubbler, who are launching a franchise based on the unique weight machines—would argue that the third time's the charm. Despite two false starts, they believe they've got what it takes to get the fitness world pumped, and they're ready to put their money where their muscle is with MaxOut Strength Studio.
On the outside, Maxout Strength Studio looks like any other fitness facility, but students who walk through the doors become stronger — both physically and mentally.
At the end of last year, the studio officially launched the Leadership and Mentorship Program (LAMP) which is designed to help teens and young adults strengthen their mind, body and soul.
Collegeville Police Officer Matt Cubbler helped deliver a woman's baby in the parking lot of a TD Bank. NBC10's Vince Lattanzio shares the incredible story.
"I spoke with Mr. Cubbler after his presentation, and I simply wanted to tell him that his story was inspiring and beautiful. Instead, I ended up crying, and he immediately came in to give me a hug. Outstanding speaker and man."
"Mr. Cubbler's speech was the first one to make me cry. His story was interesting and I paid full attention, and I can easily say that the life lessons I learned from him were some of the best ones I've ever learned. He also had a sense of humor!"
"He had a very powerful presentation that made me cry."
"His speech and story were amazing and inspiring!"
"This was my was my absolute favorite speaker!"
I just wanted to drop you a quick email, first to thank you, but secondly, to tell you what an AWESOME job you did at the program this week. You really reached these young people with your message, and you received huge applause at the banquet last night. We show a video at the close of each banquet taking them on a trip down memory lane for the week, and part of the video shows all our speakers, and the students go nuts when they see pictures of our speakers, and when your photo came up, it truly was thunderous. It was great to see and hear.
On behalf our President and CEO, Karen Musante, I just want to thank you again for an incredible message for our kids. They needed to hear it, and you were awesome in delivering it.
All the best,
Scott T. Lee/VP of Marketing and Development

Once again I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for speaking at our annual banquet on March 25th. Your talk had such an inspirational and inspiring message. You could have heard a pin drop in the banquet hall while you were speaking. The audience was hanging on every word. I’ve talked to many of the attendees and they all had nothing but praise for you and your story.
I have passed the word to other groups that I have business with and that may be in need of a speaker and highly recommended that they contact you and have you talk to their group and I will continue to do so.
Once again, Thank You and good luck to you!
I highly recommend Matt Cubbler's "I Got You" mentoring program! Matt has been working with my boys (age 14 and 16) for 4 months. I am thrilled to notice things that I've been trying to instill in them for years, to actually be "heard" during these mentoring sessions. I have seen them both take ownership of their own choices regarding free time and pursuing interests and goals. Within 2 sessions, I noticed both of them rushing home from sports and activities on Friday nights to complete all their homework so they had a real weekend to pursue other interests/goals and be ahead and not procrastinate. I have watched them shake hands confidently with adults when they walk in the room and also pay attention to areas where they can help others as leaders. My 16 year old reports that he is feeling less stressed and feels more in control (able to balance of work and fun without my influence), and the 14 year old feels more confident. Matt helped both of them identify goals to work toward that they are excited about- something I had tried to do many times. Matt found a perfect place for them to volunteer while learning skills that will help pursue those goals. In a world where kids are heavily influenced by social media, peer pressure, and intense competition to achieve at a high level in school, having a mentor (other than a parent) to help sort out the noise and target greatness has been an incredible asset. Thank you Matt for showing up in our lives and helping us navigate the questions, as well as help to find the answers to be strategic about raising respectful, authentic, driven and compassionate young men.
We asked Matt to speak at our annual company meeting. Not sure what to expect, and interested to see how a room full of sales people who love to talk, would spend the next hour listening. I could not have been more pleased with the final outcome. Matt's willingness to share his personal stories allowed us to connect with him and thus make the conversation a genuine one. What I loved most about Matt was that he is someone we can all relate to; he is not some business mogul telling you how make millions, his message is much deeper. Matt made me think of what I can do to simply be a better person, co-worker, leader, friend, husband, and future father.
I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Matt Cubbler as a motivational and inspirational school speaker. Mr. Cubbler was very open and receptive to meeting the specific needs of our students, and was flexible in his availability and times for his presentation. Our students found Matt to be very personable and real in his message and life stories shared with them. The message he presented was not in the manner of more traditional "patented" anti-bullying speeches often presented in schools. Rather, it was a personal one, aimed at personal accountability and the difference that can be made by one person standing up for another. Matt's accounts of his childhood and his relationship with his brother, provided an experience most students could relate to and therefore made a strong connection to them. Our assembly experience was a positive impactful one and I would recommend Matt Cubbler for other school assemblies as well.
