CHIEF HAPPINESS OFFICER : )
Simon came in to my life in one of those random co-incidences. I wasn’t looking for a coach, in fact I was hugely skeptical about the whole life coach movement. Anyway, I had a coffee with Si, and something in his offbeat humour, intelligence and genuine kindness made me decide to give it a go. In the three months we have worked together, I have had major shifts in both my business and personal life, and cannot recommend him highly enough. Si has a talent for seeing the core of a person and gently, but determinedly, unraveling whatever knots are holding them back. Then he helps you stitch yourself back together, as a better, stronger, happier version of yourself. He took my cynicism and related feistyness in his stride and even when I wanted to punch his lights out (often) we never had a session without genuine laughter, or one, on reflection, where I didn’t realise how skilled and effective he is. He has, in the three months, completely turned me around and made all aspects of my life improve. Thank you Si, I am so grateful you came into my life when you did.
Our move to Australia whilst keeping the our company in the UK is daunting. Simon is helping with our planning in both a business and personal way. He’s made the journey so much easier as he’s helping us plan and prepare every step of the way.
After 25 years in a family business where I was a 40% member, I took the plunge to go on my own on 5th of November 2021. I was like a deer in the headlights and felt very overwhelmed about how to handle being on my own: in my new adventure; my own business 100% with no partners or help. I had a wife and 3 kids and was basically starting all over again at the age of 45 years young. I connected with Si, looking for help with how to handle my feelings, emotions, my strength and weaknesses as a person. Physically and mentally. Si has played a huge role as a life coach. He helped in keeping it all together, working weekly on various challenges, keeping my shit together during my journey of change, and always showing up as the best version of myself EVERYDAY
I began my journey with Si 3 months ago and I cannot believe I have come so far so quickly. I entered this challenge with open arms and an open mind, hoping to figure out what was holding me back from being my authentic self and living in true freedom. Although life is an ongoing lesson and one can spontaneously become perfect after any work done, I can honestly and confidently say that these past 3 months have taught me lessons I probably would only have learned in decades if it wasn’t for Simon’s effortless ability to coach me and guide me through life’s obstacles. Seeing Simon every week gave me hope and strength to carry on and lean into things that deserve my energy, as well as leaning back from things which do not serve me. I couldn’t wait for our weekly sessions of being completely vulnerable to the truth and allowing Si to show me the rough and smooth parts of the path that sculpt the obstacle of life – and when to use the smooth or rough part of the path in order to help me grow and move forward.
I started my journey with Si on 31st December 2018. I had put on a lot of weight over the last couple of years and was a complete workaholic, always prioritising work over exercising.
I didn’t feel confident enough to go to a gym but was lucky enough to have a gym at home so that is where we started. I knew Si was great because he focused on improving my mobility to start with, as I had had years sat in front of a computer so was really inflexible. This meant that I didn’t hurt when I exercised but gradually got more flexible and could move better. After a couple of months I felt confident enough to exercise at the gym or in class with him.
He said no to diets but encouraged me to eat healthily and cook as much as I can from scratch and he suggested I gave up drinking wine at home, which I have done and now only drink socially. I now can run again and am just so much more active and exercise 6 to 7 days a week, including when I travel for work each week.
I have been with Si now for nearly 10 months, and I feel so much fitter, healthier and happier and have lost nearly 15kg and 93 cms!! It is not only the fitness training though as I have found the life coaching really invaluable. Through our weekly calls, Si has helped me to be more confident in all facets of my life, including work and is helping me to come to terms with the loss of my brother. I feel I can be 100% honest with him and it’s good to be challenged regularly. The latest challenge is for me not to do any work when I go on holiday!! Above all though Si is such great fun, always smiling and laughing and he really cares.
I feel like a different person and am loving life again, so thanks a million Si
My aim was to get fit and get fit fast. I learned that hard work pays off but most of all I learned that unless you are coached and or trained by a professional like Simon, you will never progress to where your dreams are situated. I compete in the toughest extreme endurance motocross races in the world and my conditioning, core strength and cardio are all major components of my success. The riders I compete against are professionals that train and ride full time. With the mental, fitness, and lifestyle coaching programme Simon puts together I am able to train for a fraction of the time and experience great results, whilst staying motivated and enjoying myself.
Training at with Simon allowed me to really take my cricket and conditioning to the next level and assisted me in regaining my form in international cricket from both a physical and mental perspective.” Simon’s functional training and sport-specific focus assisted me in becoming stronger, faster, fitter, and more mobile both on and off the field, and encouraged me to try a new style of training and push my body to the next level. A massive thank you to Simon from I AM SIMON for the greatest fitness conditioning and training I have done, and also for all his mental preparation and encouragement!
Being a professional athlete, training can get boring but not with Simon. It is a new and fun workout every time with Simon and also targeting the weak spots that I would never know about on my own! Simon teaches you to train smart to perform better!
