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.

Change creates Change

Hello Gorgeous People!

I hope you are all very very well!!

Happy

The past 6 months have been transformative for myself! We’ve moved to Sydney, Australia from the UK and I have learnt so so much throughout 2016 I cannot begin to put it all in to 1 blog, so I am going to start sharing my experiences through video’s and blogs so that my experiences may help you!

This isn’t about me, this is about helping others…

In December I found myself at a low point. I was constantly stressed and felt like the world was crumbling around me. None of my clothes fit anymore, I felt awful. I didn’t want to see friends or family because I couldn’t fake the happiness that used to be natural to me.

I found getting out of bed hard and I felt like a nervous breakdown was just one straw away. So on New Year’s Eve 2015 I decided that 2016 would not just be better than 2015, but that it was going to be the best year of my life!

I got myself a coach to help me as I knew I couldn’t do it on my own and despite helping people on a daily basis I didn’t know where to start with what I was feeling… I was exercising, meditating, my diet was spot on but I was so stressed by my to-do list and I’d lost the belief that I could do any of it. I felt empty and like all hope had gone… I needed the best!

So I decided I needed Tony Robbins….

I couldn’t get Tony, but I could get on of his coaches…My coach, Lea Newman is awesome! She has given me the tools to get back to feeling like me again, but better, calmer, more understanding and able to see what is really going on!

Over the first half of this year we’ve set up two new projects, we’ve lost an amazing friend, Pauline, who came to our meditation classes, she was and is a beautiful woman and her daughter Kat is one of my closest friends, so we all felt a huge loss when she passed away. Then the day of Pauline’s funeral was the last day I saw my nan alive, who passed away very suddenly. My nan was so much more than a nan, she was a mentor to me, a friend, she came and trained at my studio twice a week and we had dramatically improved her health over the last 8 years, I’ve written about her in my book, ‘Nourish with Aimie’ and will share more information with you in the coming weeks, losing her was a huge shock, she was the head of the family, the rock, the love, the cheerleader for myself and the rest of the family, she was awesome!! Then within a few days my husband, Matt’s nan was also taken into hospital and passed away. We couldn’t believe we had lost 3 of our favourite people so close together.

We then moved house, closed my beloved studio in Worcester, my safe place, left all my amazing people who trained with me, who were all so loving and supportive, said goodbye to our family and flew to Sydney!

I’ve always believed that knowledge is power and I really, truly believe that a problem is simply a situation we just need to find an answer to and finding the right person to help saves so much time and means we can get back to living our best lives again with ease!

happy

This is our first weekend in Sydney and with my regained passion for life I found myself awake at 5 am raring with ideas for video’s, for tips, for exercises, for everything I need/want to do next… I want to help others feel just as amazing!

I know that I am not alone, I know that I’ve experienced feelings that many many people are feeling right now and you don’t have to stay there!

So… for the second half of 2016 I’m going to be focusing on self care for myself and helping others out there who are needed some help, guidance, inspiration and awesome information to get back to feeling amazing!

Please feel free to contact me aimie@moveandnourish.com if you would like coaching online or in Sydney or if you have any questions at all!

I’m here to help!

Sending you all tons of love,

Aimie

Can you learn to ask better questions?

This topic just keeps on reoccurring so I needed to share it with you all!

 

About a year ago, the amazing John Hardy bought my attention to the fact that in the fitness industry we ask some really unhelpful questions…So as a trainer I needed to learn to ask better questions.

 

As a child we always asked questions, which seemed to annoy a lot of adults or result in the answer, “I don’t know” As we age, we can get into a habit of not questioning or not wanting to be rude… But questions are awesome when you ask better ones!

 

Every single day of our lives our mind is going through an internal dialogue, we have around 65,000 thoughts a day, 80% negative and 90 % the same as the day before! Can you remember any of yours?

 

We can be guilty of wasting time asking negative questions like, “Why can’t I lose weight?” “Why do I eat so much?”, “Why can’t I stop eating chocolate”

 

We are bombarded with images and marketing telling us that we need their products to be better. Why don’t I look like them, why don’t I have that car? Why is my hair not shiny like hers? You get the picture.

 

Comparison is the thief of happiness. And what I really want for you is simple, to be happier and healthier!

 

Once the question is out there we naturally find answers in our own minds. We ask questions and answer them all day long. Most of our answers are backing up the question, making it seem true!

 

“I can’t lose weight because I’m lazy, I have no will power, I’m big boned”… or “They wont pick me for the job because I’m not good enough, there will be someone better than me, I never get what I want”

 

So what I want to inspire you to do… What I beg you to do, What I wish and hope you will do is join me on the quest of asking better questions with me! Like anything it’s simply a new muscle that needs building up and making stronger. I found it really hard to being with, but with practice you will soon see an incredible difference!

 

So here are some questions for you to try…

 

Why am I good enough?

 

Why am I going to get inshape?

 

Why do I deserve health?

 

Why do all of my friends value me so much?

 

Why is my life incredible?

 

How can I look after myself better?

 

How can I make a few easy steps to reaching my goal?

 

What do I really want?

 

Once you are on a roll there will be no stopping you!

 

Then start questioning others too! In a kind, compassionate way of course!

 

We would love to hear from you so please let us know Why you freaking rock!!!

 

Love Aimie xxx

 

New Timetable and a Little Gift x

Hello Gorgeous People!

I hope you are all enjoying the time building up towards Christmas! I certainly am! I feel so lucky that we have had a lovely mild few weeks to enjoy the warm breeze! I’ve been studying more ancient forms of yoga this month and am really enjoying learning more and playing with totally new movements that feel wonderful!

So my christmas present to you all is to get you to think of 3 things you are grateful for, but not just anythings… a specific 3 things that will make you feel like the luckiest person alive when you do it regularly. I do this after every meditation practice and I love it, so I hope you enjoy!

1. Think of 1 person who makes your life more fun/enjoyable/happier, who makes you feel loved or special and think about why you like/love them so much. (you could even text them afterwards to tell them?)

2. Remember something you’ve done in your life that you are proud of yourself for and really dwell on how incredible you are capable of being!

3. In your mind experience or try to remember one thing in nature that you love, for example, the crunch of leaves beneath your feet in autumn or the sun on your skin. My favourite is a warm breeze through my hair on a summers night.

That’s it! Why not give it a go?

Oh yes, and here is my new timetable ready for you all to get into the self care spirit before the new year!

Have a wonderful day lovely ones!

Love Aimie xx

Plant based BBQ

 

Hello Gorgeous People!

As promised, here is part 2 of my nourishing BBQ recipes… I hope you enjoy them!

Vegan & Gluten Free Bad-Ass BBQ Burger

1. Simply gently roast 4 big flat mushrooms (no-oil), 1 chopped red pepper and 2 slices sweet potatoes (using the ends to make chip shapes) in a little coconut oil, gently turning every 10-15 minutes.

2. Then chop radish, carrots, red cabbage & courgette to make an easy clean salad base (today I used my mandolin to chop)

3. Blend the ingredients from my vegan coleslaw recipe in the book ‘Nourish with Aimie’ a mixture of Macadamia nuts, raw apple cider vinegar, raw honey or coconut nectar if you don’t use honey and a little water and coat the salad.

4. Using some left over quinoa from the day before, gently add in some BBQ spices

5. Chop 1 red onion and gently soften in a little coconut oil on a low heat until soft

6. Once it’s all cooked, simply stack 1 mushroom on the bottom, add a little quinoa and mustard, a slice of sweet potato, more quinoa and mustard and red pepper, more sweet potato and then red onion, topped off with your topper, the second mushroom

7. Add salad and sweet fries and enjoy!

“The more you do… the more you can do”

Hello!!! Happy Monday all! I hope you are all well!

I just had to share a little story about a wonderful lady I train, Julie, she is an amazing woman, with an amazing daughter and beautiful grandchildren! Julie always inspires me with her amazing attitude, never ending kindness and the love she has for her family!

Julie is also very determined and when she sets her sights on a goal nothing gets in her way…

Last week Julie text me to say she couldn’t get to training this week as she looks after her grandchildren in the day, so could she have another session that week (rather than missing a week or catching up at some time, she wanted to get it in!)… well, I was very impressed and I told her so on her second session that week and she said how much she was enjoying training and her green smoothies, she’s looking fantastic, but feels so much better and the best thing is that she enjoys it!

She then said, ‘the more you do, the more you can do!’ So simple, but so true and I thought this advise might just help anyone reading this. It’s not about trying to do everything a once, but adding in better things along the way. For example, as you move more the more you are able to move with ease, the more weights you lift the more weight you can lift, the more green smoothies you make the quicker and more efficient you become, the longer you prepare healthy meals for (weeks, into months, into years) it just becomes habit and we become more efficient, it seems like it becomes easier and just part of our lives.

With many of my client’s you find very quickly that the things they found really tough in the beginning end up being more of a warm up after a few weeks, goals we’ve worked on end becoming easy and we strive for new challenges. Things we had to get ourselves physically or mentally prepared for become easy and effortless!

So, if you have a goal, just start, the longer you keep pursuing that goal the closer you will get and as Julie says, ‘the more you do, the more you can do!

Go Julie!xx
