Hi I’m Amelia!
I have been in the health and wellness industry for over 22 years, and a fitness nut my entire life. Since completing my science degree and Masters in nutrition, I have enjoyed a career as a trainer, exercise scientist, researcher, nutritionist, podcaster, TV presenter and corporate speaker.
I am the co-founder of the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation and Voome.com.au, nutrition and fitness expert on Channel 9 Today Extra, as well as appearing on A Current Affair and The Today Show.
During our ten years with 12WBT we were awarded the BRW top 50 best places to work, and was the fastest growing and largest online health & fitness platform (bigger than Weight Watches!).
Since selling our shares, I have focussed on my research with Deakin University on diet quality and mental health. I’ve launched a podcast series called Healthy Her (for Mums who are ready to regain control of their body, mind and life!), and evolved into family health.
I live in Avalon on Sydney’s Northern beaches with my husband Tim, four kids under 5yo, and our dog Diesel. When we’re not working or kid wrangling you’ll catch us at the beach, on family bike rides, or trying some new outdoor adventure (camping is next on our list – help me!!).
Health. Love. Purpose.
Health: I see exercise and nutrition as a platform that can supercharge our life. When we nourish with nutrition, build strength and resilience with exercise, we fill ourselves with energy to get the most out of life.
Nutrition philosophy: Simple. Balanced. Beautiful.
Exercise philosophy: Feel the burn. Love the burn!
Love: It sounds so woo woo but I try to always come from a place of love. I choose empathy and kindness and try not to be hard on myself or others. I believe this starts with our internal self talk. How can we be truly kind to others if we aren’t connected with our inner child and our vulnerabilities? Always evolve, act in a sustainable way, and teach our children to do the same.
“Love is a promise. Love is a souvenir. Once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.” — John Lennon
Purpose: I believe a life lived with purpose is a truly fulfilled life. A life where you know your values and use them as your true north. A life where you set priorities around what matters most to you, and you go for them! A life where you nurture your relationships and make a difference in other people’s lives.
“Your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it” ― Buddha
“I am opinionated and passionate, but I know my stuff, so let’s get cracking and change some lives!”
