Mark Penny Testimonial

I received a lovely testimonial from such a wonderful man I used to train in Sydney and just had to post it. Mark is an incredible doctor in Sydney and he was such a pleasure to work with and in the 2 years I had the pleasure of training him he achieved amazing things with his body! I was so impressed by how far he came!

I am very lucky, over the past 17 years as a trainer, to have found the best mentors and had access to some of the best courses in the world, that I am able to work with each individual to achieve their goals while working with injuries, pain, health issues etc. When I first qualified as a trainer when I was 19, I very quickly realised how complex each person is and how we all have such varying medical histories, so I have dedicated the past 17 years to continually learning more to help the amazing people I get to train. I was lucky enough to use this knowledge to create really challenging programs for Mark that were safe, vary varied, fun and enjoyable.

“I am a 58-year-old physician with a number of grumbling mild musculoskeletal problems: nothing that ever stopped me training and getting fit, just needing good supervision and motivation. Being medical, I am often very sceptical of the credentials and experience of many personal trainers. In other words, whether they have the skills and experience to train people effectively and safely. I had no doubts regarding Aimie’s abilities.

Aimie trained me for over two years across two gyms for three one-on-one sessions per week (well, most weeks). I have never been so fit, and it was the first time I had been down to an ideal body weight since my 20s (I was also on a sensible diet).

She is very experienced and versatile in how she structures her sessions. She has an excellent understanding of how to tailor individual programmes which also made sense from a biomechanical and physiological perspective – ie. my BS detector never went off. The programmes were not repetitive and she integrated many different styles and techniques in her training to keep sessions interesting and challenging.

Aimie has a lovely personality. She is scrupulously honest. She is a very sensible and gentle motivator: never pushing too far or not far enough for my abilities (or previous injuries). I should by saying I hate exercise but looked forwards to my sessions.

My son is an Exercise Physiologist who also trained with Aimie in one of the gyms in which she worked. He also spoke very highly of her professional and interpersonal skills.

I should add that one of the most experienced and respected personal trainers in Sydney (specialising in middle-aged and older clients), whom I know personally, suffered an injury that took her out of work for a few months and she asked Aimie to train her back to fitness.


I could not recommend Aimie highly enough and was very sad to lose her back to the UK. Should she return to Sydney I’ll be back on her books immediately.

I wish her well in her career back home.

BRAND NEW Worcester Studio Update

Hey Lovely People!

I hope you are all safe and well! What a 18 months we’ve all had! I hope if you are reading this right now that you and your loved ones are all doing ok!

Having lived in Sydney, Australia between 2016 – 2020 we arrived back in the Worcester, UK on Monday 23rd March on Day 1 of Lockdown, such an uncertain time for everyone, and I am so grateful to have been able to continue working during the UK lockdowns online doing PT via zoom, online classes and Emotion Code, Body Code and EFT (tapping).

It was a really challenging time for everyone in so many ways and I applaud everyone for getting through it! If you carried on working out over the past 18 months, WOW! that’s awesome! And if you didn’t and like so many of us are starting again afresh, congratulations for getting back into it! Or if you are still struggling, just know there is no rush, you take care of yourself and get back into it when you feel ready to!

Over the past 12 months, I’ve been busy renovating my Worcester Studio in anticipation of getting back into the swing of training people face to face again! How amazingly exciting!

We have a beautiful gym space downstairs, with tons of space to move and train to our hearts desires, some old favourites like the Power Plate, Squat Rack, Bench Press, Free Weights, Kettlebells, Core Sticks (you will love them! 😉 GripRs, VIPR’s, Foam rollers and much more and the addition of some beautiful NOHrD kit including Wall Bars, which are super versatile and so much fun and my absolute favourite… The Slim Beam, which is a beautiful wooden Cable Machine, the perfect resistance tool for seniors, people with vertigo, rehab, people who’ve never been in a gym all the way up to the gym bunny who never misses a day! This piece of kit is smooth, easy to use and full of endless potential when it comes to exercises we can do with it – you name a muscle, we can work it!

We also have a beautiful new floor from Escape Fitness, which just feels amazing, it’s been so nice and cool over the summer and is really grippy and feels amazing for any floor exercises!

We’ve also moved our Yoga and Pilates space upstairs to the indoor zen garden, which also has a Pole! People have tried it and they love it! Pole is so much fun and totally addictive! I’ll write a whole post on Pole Dancing as there is so much to cover just on this topic!

I am so excited to be back home in Worcester, the studio is all up and running, full of fun new toys as well as a beautiful space for The Emotion Code, The Body Code and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). Come and sit upstairs in a bright airy room full of plants and space and let go of some of the emotional baggage that’s been weighing you down!

I currently have space for a few new clients, so please get in touch if you need some help with your health, fitness and wellbeing!

I also have a couple of spaces in my online zoom classes that have been such a joy over the past 18 months!

Wherever you are right now, I hope you are safe and well! Take care of yourself! Make time for the things you enjoy! That light you up, make you smile and laugh! Move in ways that feel great for your body and soul and enjoy as much as you can of each day!

Wishing you a beautiful life!

Warmest Wishes,

Aimie x x x

*New* Beginners Gentle Mobility Course

Hey lovely people! And Happy New Year!!

I am very excited to be starting a Brand New Beginner’s Gentle Mobility Class next week and just wanted to open it up to anyone else who wants to start moving more…

I’m looking at 8 am Tuesday’s, to begin with via zoom.
I’m running it as a 10-week course.

Each session will be filmed and sent to the individuals who take part to practice at their leisure between classes.

I’ll be doing a consultation with each person joining to ensure everyone’s safety and give the best and appropriate moves to everyone joining in.

We are all different and each of us has our strengths and things we find more challenging. In these classes, we will build a strong foundation of movement to help with everyday tasks and to generally feel more mobile and help life feel easier!

This class is suitable for absolute beginners and also fantastic for anyone with a body! Great for anyone who is recovering from injury or who simply has lost some confidence in their body and movement.

Having had many injuries and lots of pain myself and with pretty much every client I’ve ever worked with over the past 15 years I’ve worked really hard to learn and understand as much about the human body as I can. Using a very kind approach where we encourage each person to move as they feel safe and comfortable to ensures we build mobility and strength in a really safe and effective way!

If you have any questions just let me know!

I’m really excited for this!

Have a wonderful day!

Online Classes and Timetable

What a few months we have had worldwide with Covid 19. It has been a time of huge uncertainty for everyone and an amazing time to see people come together and support each other by staying indoors, social distancing and generally being amazing friends and neighbours.

It’s been a time where the value of daily exercise has been really valued and people have really been aware of their mental health and physical health.

With restrictions relaxing I will continue to run all Personal Training Sessions, Bodycode Sessions and Classes online for the time being and update everyone when the time comes as to reopening the studio for Personal Training and Classes.

My goal is to always do the very best job I can for my clients by keeping them safe and giving them the most up to date training and support possible!

If you would like to discuss Personal Training or Classes please get in touch and we can find the best option for you!

Jan’s First 3 Weeks Back Into Training

They got great results and since reopening classes online in May 2020, after moving back to the UK, Jan has religiously attended 3 classes a week, here is what she has to say about her experience…

“If anyone is looking to get moving and feel fitter I can highly recommend Aimie’s Personal Training and Classes!

Lewis’s Testimonial

I had the pleasure of training Lewis in Sydney after major ankle surgery, we worked on foot mechanics to help him to squat, skateboard and run again. Here is what he had to say about our sessions,

“Coming back to the gym after a long time off due to major injury, Aimie has helped me more than any physiotherapist or trainer I’ve encountered in my life. When a specific weakness or mobility issue is brought up, she always has a movement ready to address it. Able to work with all kinds of people regardless of fitness level or disability, she is a charming, energetic repository of knowledge. Would recommend Aimie 100% to anyone aiming to rehabilitate an injury or improve bodily function.”

Andrew Body Code Testimonial

I’ve been working with Aimie now as my Body Code Coach for about 30 sessions. I have seen significant changes in many areas of my life. I feel like a very different person to who I was before this.
I’ve been lugging around emotions and patterns for many years, and through her work as a coach, she has very gently helped me let these go. For me, this has led to:-

* an improved relationship with my wife. Little things that used to nag me, just don’t anymore (this is huge for me)
* more money. We did a lot of work on blocks I have had in my business. There was one month in there that after a session with Aimie, we sent on to have a record month. We usually make about $130k per month and in this month we did $270k so more than doubled.

I feel more at peace, and she is now working with my wife and seeing amazing results with her as well.

Thank you so much Aimie. What you do is truly remarkable and I really hope people get to experience you. I propose you get a 10 pack of coaching calls and work with her for a longer period to really reap the rewards. I highly recommend this work.

Leon’s Testimonial

I worked with Aimie in the movement and coaching industry for over 2 years in Sydney, Aimie has been a mentor of a lifetime, to say Aimie is a master in understanding movement is an understatement, she is the coaches coach, she will prescribe you the right amount of movement medicine in the style that you prefer, to reach the goals that you desire. she is also a lovely person and will meet you where you need to be met, showing up entirely for you, the client.
