Promoting Athletic Welfare in Aesthetic Sports is a must read for parents and coaches of young athletes who are considering traveling the path of highly competitive/elite gymnastics or figure skating. Aimie persuasively discusses the historical systemic framework that these sports exhibit and gives recommendations for much needed change.  She brings into light the inherent dark side of the sport(s) which only serves to educate and initiate steps forward towards a safer sport for those just beginning to find love and joy in these alluring sports.

ABOUT AIMIE

My name is Aimie Epoch (pronouns: She/Her). I am an author and a Certified Wellness & Health Coach. My work is grounded in Health at Every Size, Intuitive Eating, body inclusivity, and cultivating balance in life.

I know how difficult it can be to take up space and stay grounded in competitive, results-driven sporting environments.


I help coaches and athletes (& their loved ones) learn to prioritize both physical and mental wellbeing, overcome mind blocks, navigate the difficulties of a balanced coach-athlete-parent relationship, and create lasting change in reducing food and body image related harm.
