From a young age Aimee began suffering with her mental health and overtime the mental health services failed her, she thought she was constantly alone and by a-levels I had dropped out because she couldn't take it anymore. This happens EVERY SINGLE DAY to so many of us. From that point she knew something had to change.....

Exercise saved her life. After quitting a-levels she had no choice but to go to college to study, the only course with spaces was a Level 3 Sport Science qualification. By 2016 at the age of 17, Aimee realised how beneficial exercise was and knew she wanted to support as many people as she could, so set up The Happiness Bootcamp, a place to teach how exercise can support you mentally and not just physically.

In 2018, Aimee met Laura in one of her Pop Pilates classes, at the time Laura was just getting back to fitness and was anxious about joining a class but saw that the Happiness Bootcamp was designed for people with anxiety....she had no idea what was in store for her!........ Over the next 2 years Laura became a director of The Happiness Bootcamp, gained qualifications in Fitness Instructing and Personal training, and has now opened the studio with Aimee. Over the last 4 years, they have taught workshops, fitness classes and personal trained people all over the country proving that exercise doesn’t just have to be physical!
