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

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.”

A little taster of Move and Nourish…

Hey Gorgeous People!

I just wanted to give you a quick sneak peak of what our amazing new site, www.moveandnourish.com has on offer to guide you to eat better, feel better, think better and move better… Today we have one of my favourites, my lovely functional yoga movement session perfect or everyone! The site is jam packed full of other lovely videos to get you feeling amazing!I hope you enjoy and please go and take a look around!

I hope you are all enjoying the first day of lent? Lent is usually about giving up something, a feeling of deprivation, a feeling like you are missing out, but I’d like to encourage you to add something in for the next 40 days that will make you feel amazing!

I’m adding in 1 hour a day (that’s only 4% of the day) of me time, that’s to either exercise, meditate, have a long hot bath or curl up with a good book or a mixture. I’ve been really busy lately with awesome, fun projects, which can sometimes stop us looking after ourselves, so let’s look at how to do more good for our minds and bodies!

In my classes this morning we were all discussing this and Anita is going to give herself the gift of a proper lunch break every single day, for the next 40 days! Jane and Anne are simply going to add in 6 repetitions of a Pilates exercise, a ‘roll-down’ where you simply become aware of the gentle opening of the back of the spine as you roll down, then re-build the vertebra back up. Simple!

What will you gift your beautiful self with this lent?

Loads of Love,

 

Aimie

A bit of yoga fun…

Hey Lovely People!

As I do practise a lot of exercise myself and with my clients (it’s not all green smoothies and raw cheesecakes – wink) I thought I’d share with you some fun moves you can expect sneaking into classes… I’ve take open-bend-stretch from yoga and had a little play, so in this first video I’m flipping the move into wild-thing, which is a version of side plank, it feels amazing and is lovely in the shoulders, the abdomen, obliques and makes you feel a bit of a yoga bad-ass! Wooo Hooo!!

This move is a functional surfer jump up that I’ve been practicing for my own surfing, which I love, its fun and nice to feel springy! In Vinyassa Flow they do a lot of quick moves, so this is great to get you moving, I also love tweaking it in the transverse plane (twisting) to give the hips and feet some variety!

Now, I love this one, simply walking from high-lunge to the other side with the add in of the open-bend-stretch to really get the hips moving and to teach the body that movement is still fun and safe! Your high lunge will become so much more open with this move!

This is really fun too… I like to call this the slough crawl, slow and steady and totally functional! It’s so important to be able to easily hold your own body weight and to be able to move easily in many different ways, I’m playing with crawling a lot at the moment as it really does get the entire body moving and it’s fun! It’s also really rewarding to feel your body getting stronger and feeling these moves getting easier!

I hope you enjoy these moves!

Have an awesome day!

Love Aimie 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
