New Testimonial….

“I have been working with Aimie now for the last year now and I absolutely love the results that this work has given me! I feel so much better in myself, physically, mentally and emotionally and I have noticed profound changes, especially with my health and vitality. I was surprised at the start to see how much emotion has been stuck in my body yet time after time, the clearing of it has left me feeling more energetic, healthier, clearer and more in control. My time with Aimie, cleaning up these stuck emotions and unconscious beliefs, has created the space for me to fill myself with the emotions and beliefs that are supporting the results that I am now getting. Aimie is a phenomenal practitioner of this work, so kind, caring and wise. This work is invaluable and it will be something I continue to utilize over the course of my life”

I love BBQ…

Hello Food Fans!

If you are anything like me you will totally love summer and all of the delicious foods that come with it… sun ripened strawberries, fresh juices and salads, super sweet fruits and BBQ’s!! “Say what? BBQ? Aren’t you vegan?” I hear you cry, yes I am, but that doesn’t stop me totally enjoying delicious foods, I just have to be creative… So here are my best three easy BBQ meal ideas…

unnamed-6

 

This was my first and quickest BBQ inspired meal…

BBQ Raw Pepper Burgers and Sweet Fries

1. simply chopped sweet potatoes, slowly cooked in a little coconut oil.

2. cut an orange pepper into 3 slices and fill with sliced avocado and broccoli or alfalfa sprouts (found in any good health food shop)

3. Top off with a slice of tomato and a little organic mustard (I had to get mine from wholefoods as every other place had nasty preservatives or E numbers in – we can do better than that right?)

4. Add a little pink Himalayan Salt and black pepper and any extra sprouts (highly nutritious and definitely a food you want in your weekly food intake) And enjoy!

Watermelon-aide

 

As it’s summer, we definitely need some beautiful hydrating food in our lives, so this amazingly quick watermelon juice is perfect! Simply chop the melon up and blend until smooth… that’s it! (A few posts down you should find a video on how to do this…)

unnamed-8

BBQ Quinoa Wraps

This is a variation of my mongo wraps in my book, ‘Nourish with Aimie’ using nice big spring green leaves we get a fantastic base of alkalising greens, fibre and alkalising minerals with loads of taste…

1. Cook the quinoa for 15 minutes while prepping the rest of the food. After 15, take off the heat and allow to absorb remaining fluid and add in some BBQ spices, I used an organic BBQ mix I found in Las Vegas Wholefoods, but any sugar free mix will work

2. Wash your green and slice out the middle ‘vein’ that’s too tough to eat (can be juiced later) chop avocado and peppers, pick any herbs, I used micro herbs I’ve grown at home, coriander and cress, so easy and delicious!

3. Down one side of the ‘vein’ simply fill with quinoa, veggies and avo and some mustard (as before) then roll the filled side to the centre, fold in both ends and finish rolling to create your wrap and cut in half…That’s it! Enjoy!

In my next blog I will share with you my BBQ burgers and raw coleslaw! Yum! Happy Tuesday!xx

“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

30 day yoga challenge

IMG_3808

 

As some of you will know I love yoga, I might not be the best at it and have been known to fall out of my headstands giggling, but it’s super fun to learn new things and we only fall down to pick ourselves back up. I started up again 3 years ago because I wanted to try something new and learn how to do cool tricks – I wanted a new challenge!

I had actually started doing yoga when I was 15 and I’d been begging my dad for a gym membership for my 16th birthday in my plan to become Angelina Jolie after watching gone in 60 seconds, I wanted to lose weight and be a bad ass! Up until that point I’d always quit everything I’d started, violin, guitar, basket ball, judo (1 lesson) so he set me a challenge, to lose 1 stone, then I could have a gym membership as my birthday present. I was 15, a size 18 and had no idea how to lose weight, I asked the doctor who said to go running…no chance! So I bought myself a yoga video (yes, video, it was 14 years ago) and I just started doing the 10 minute warm up every day, within a few weeks I’d changed, I looked taller, slimmer, I felt wonderful and I was well on my way to getting that gym membership!

That 10 minutes daily changed my life and I’d like to challenge you to see if just 10 minutes a day could change your life too!

I will post 3 little yoga video’s for you to try at home and see what happens if you just do one of these a day…

 

 

Turmeric…let’s give it a go…

Happy Monday lovely people!!!

So…you’ve all heard the hype, you need Turmeric, it’s anti inflammatory, countries that use Turmeric have a much lower rate of disease, it’s a super food right… but how to use it?

Turmeric

Well, I just need to tell you this and then we will get onto the yummy nourishing stuff… sugar, the white stuff in biscuits, cakes, ketchup, Pringles, jarred tomato sauces, microwave meals, breads and so many more things cause chronic inflammation, so to reduce inflammation firstly cut out these refined sugars, eat fresh home made foods, as local, seasonal and organic as you can, or grow them yourselves and try adding in some Turmeric.

While I’m on the subject, fruit is not the same as white sugar, fruit is packed full of nutrients, minerals, fibre, fluids that hydrate and nourish your cells. If you are eating whole fresh fruit, that’s fantastic!!

You can get Turmeric in two ways, dried and in a ground powder or fresh in it’s root form, I love the root form! So, I’m going to share with you many ways to add Turmeric into your food….

So here is the first way I started using Turmeric, in a juice

The Orange Healer

-1 kg of organic carrots
-1 Turmeric root
-1 small chunk of ginger
-1 lemon
-1 lime
-1 orange

turmeric juice

pop all ingredients through the juicer and enjoy!

So I hope you enjoy this juice and keep nourishing that gorgeous body of yours!

Happy Monday all!xx

Round of Applause Please…

Ash

Hello! And happy Tuesday!

Doesn’t it always feel amazing when we only have a 4 day week ahead?

After a beautiful sunny bank holiday weekend I’m feeling extremely grateful, to not only my wonderful friends and family for being incredible humans, but to my incredible group of awesome people who come and train and learn with me, so this week is my athlete appreciation week…So let’s kick it off with this wonderful girl… Ash…

Ash is just 20 years old, studying at Worcester Uni and one very, very dedicated young lady! She has been coming to see me for just 2 months and has already achieved a few very incredible tasks! As a student, she is 100% committed to eating a very clean, alkaline diet, mainly plant based with tons of vegetables, fruit and a little meat. Ash is the only student I’ve ever known to get up early for training and is so eager I love it!

Ash has already lost 10 kg (22lbs) in 8 weeks and looks incredible, her skin is glowing and her eyes are bright. But the best part for me is what a happy lady I get to see each session, the difference in just 2 months is so inspiring and I love that Ash will help to inspire others to become the best versions of themselves!

Here are the 3 things that I believe are a real key to Ash’s success…

Ash

1. Ash has a very clear goal, to lose 1 kg per week, but understands that muscle weighs more than fat and is noticing other fantastic effects of her lifestyle change. So that the weight is not her only source of happiness. Her clothes are looser, eveyone is complimenting her and she FEELS better!

2. Ash is following a diet high in vegetables which alkalises, cleanses, energises and keeps her feeling satisfied!

3. Ash is living a more active lifestyle, walking everywhere and training 3 times a week, walking to and from work counts as part of her plan and she keeps track of her steps with a pedometer.

So well done Ash! Keep up the awesome work!

Love Aimie xx

Welcome to the CMT – The CORE Momentum Trainer

Hello Lovely People!

I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather and are excited about the summer wardrobes coming back out and feeling the warm sun on your skin! I am! I’ve already been eating my watermelons in the garden getting that awesome vitamin D in!

Now I want to introduce you to a super awesome piece of kit, the CMT or CORE Momentum Trainer… this is going to be the next big thing when it comes to fitness and I want to share it with you all. I’ve been using the CMT for 2 years now and love it, I’m also very excited to share with you that I am now a CMT Master Trainer! Woooo hoooo!

IMG_9766

Dr Derek Steveson, a PhD physiotherapist and expert in functional biomechanics who runs the Functional Performance Center in Arizona designed the CMT with has been using this awesome piece of kit on athletes and has experienced amazing results! The CMT is an amazing tool and so versatile we can use it with near enough anyone, from my 76 year old nan wanting to keep moving and get fitter, to my little 5 and 6 year cousins who just want to play to Rob, my black belt bad-ass to professional sports people and so on… My awesome athletes love it and quickly notice the difference in their core and see the results in the mirror!

CMT

I’ve used it to help people suffering with sciatica, lower back pain and issues with the foot and ankle and much much more with fantastic results for anyone looking to get fitter and move better!

It’s fantastic because it has the added bonus of audio feedback, you can literally hear how effective each move is! How cool is that!

CMT

This is how Escape fitness and the incredible John Hardy explain how the CMT works,

“The CMT is based around the central Power Core that contains lubricated steel shot. At the end of each movement, this material collides against the Power Core walls with considerable force. The force is transferred to the user’s core via their arms and working hard to precisely control the force is what guarantees an effective workout.

But best of all – and this is what is creating not only a noise, but also a real buzz around the CMT – is that the sound of the collision provides an accurate indication of how well the exercise is being performed.

When you are working effectively with the CMT the material hits the Power Core sweet spot and you hear a sharp, sudden sound. A longer, less focused sound is an indication that you are losing focus or are becoming fatigued, so it’s time to either up the effort or move on to another exercise.”

CMT

The best part of all is simply how enjoyable this piece of kit is to use, everyone loves it and the results are amazing.

So what are you waiting for, get booked in to a CMT class with me now and enjoy shaking what your mamma gave you (wink)
