My Vision

My vision is for women to have a harmonious journey through every life stage, from puberty to post menopause. I strive for a future where women confidently own and celebrate their body, fostering a culture of empowerment for generations to come.

Hi I'm Amy!

Personal Trainer, Nutrition Coach & Mama

Tired of the narrative suggesting our bodies lose control with age, I ventured into personal training. The common mantra echoed: "just wait until you have kids/hit 30/hit menopause etc, it will happen to you too."


Determined to challenge this, I initially believed that intense training and 'clean' eating held the universal key.

However, a reality check hit when my boot camp-style workouts didn't align with the unique needs of mothers. This prompted a deep dive, leading to certificates in pre & postnatal exercise prescription.

Continuous education became my compass. I've since gained numerous certificates in all aspects of women's health, reinforcing my commitment to providing comprehensive and specialised support.

Now, my belief centres on the body as a vessel for life. Appearance is trivial; how it feels and supports your life matters. Equally crucial is how you nurture your body and mind.

My journey through IVF amplified this understanding. As a mum with a C-section scar as a badge of honour, I've gained profound respect for our body's journey. Every phase, from puberty to post-menopause, deserves nurture and respect.

Becoming a mum intensified my commitment to modelling a positive body relationship for my daughter. It's a lifelong journey, but I relish the peace it brings.

When we partner with our bodies, we can accomplish wonderful things!
