Amy Williams MBE OLY
Our Wellness & Lifestyle Ambassador
Wellness is the process of refining healthy habits on a regular basis to achieve better physical and mental health, so that instead of just surviving, you're thriving. We truly believe in the art of escapism and deep work, because sometimes all you need to kickstart your journey to an improved lifestyle is the great outdoors.
We are so excited to have partnered with our longstanding friend Amy Williams and cannot wait to take our guests, members and partners on this mental and psychical welfare expedition, to improve everyones overall welfare.
Amy was brought up in Bath, studying at Bath University and in the summer of 2002, trying out for the newly-installed bobsleigh and skeleton push-start training facility at the university – the rest is in the record books!
At her debut Winter Olympic Games in 2010, Amy claimed Team GB’s only gold medal of the Games in skeleton, breaking the track record twice along the way and winning by more than a half a second. In winning gold, she became Britain’s first solo Winter Olympics champion in 30 years and the first female individual Gold Medallist for 58 years.
Amy was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2010 Birthday Honours and later installed as an Honorary Freeman of the City of Bath on 5 June 2010.
After retiring from the sport in Spring of 2012, Amy has done a lot of other work including television, public appearances and motivational speaking, as well as presenting on BBC’s Ski Sunday and joining the BBC Sport commentary team for their coverage at winter sports events, Sochi 2014 and Pyeong Chang 2018 Olympics. She presented on the Gadget Show for 3 years, interviewing upcoming inventors and trying out crazy gadgets and inventions, using her dare devil personality to spread the news on the newest and lasted technology and gadgets to the world. However, once an athlete, always an athlete!
Amy’s passion for fitness is still burning, and today she runs her own Personal Training and Coaching business alongside her other high profile interests. She is a true inspiration and hosts regular talks to school children, CEO's and celebrities alike, motivating every heart she touches.
