Here's what members say...
“Two things put MMM way ahead of your typical online exercise class. The first is that pleasure is important. While I come out of the sessions feeling like I’ve had a good workout, I’m never dying. Ruth makes it clear we are free to go at our own pace, and they key thing about the classes is we enjoy them. The second thing is that the music is awesome. Exercise music never quite hits the spot when you’re a fan of electronic music, but Ruth picks some fab sets! As well as a few firm favourites having showed up, I’ve also discovered new artists and have a whole load of new sets saved on my Soundcloud.”
"I can see my waist again!! Since joining MMM, I've gone from a shapeless mass, to a body where I can see definition on my arms, thighs, waist and back. I feel fitter and have more mobility. The dull ache I've had in my back for years has disappeared."
“MMM has been a complete lifesaver during the pandemic. I love the endorphin rush after a good workout and the feeling of being fit, but this period has been stressful, and I found it really hard to motivate myself. It has been a lifeline to have an enjoyable class to look forward to and to get me out of bed in the mornings.”
"Hi, I’m Ruth: PT 10+ years, clubber 20+ years"
I've always had a love of clubbing and electronic music, starting my adventures in the London club scene at Turnmills, The Cross and The End in the late 90s. My first Ibiza holiday circa 2003 cemented this love. Working as a striptease artist and pole dancer for over a decade allowed me to bring music into my working life. After leaving the strip world, I trained as a fitness instructor, partly to be on my feet, making people smile, with music on all day as my job.
Fast-forward several years and the pandemic closed my gym. I immediately launched a free weekly online fitness sessions for my 'Trance Family', as a way of staying connected with trance-loving friends, sharing the love of music and sweating together while the clubs were closed. This evolved into a fundraiser for mental health charity Mind, raising over £500.
In summer 2020 I launched The Morning Music Movement (MMM). A small but commited band of MMM members got up and worked out at 07.30am three times a week through the lockdowns - through my musical selections discovering new DJs, rediscovering old names, reminiscing over clubs and festivals past, and looking forward to where the scene will go next. Every few months I donated profits from a session to We Make Events, supporting out-of-work DJs, event organisers and staff. In designing the workouts I blend my fitness trainer experience, elements of my dance background, and knowledge of the best music to get your heart beating faster.
Now the world is (hopefully) opening up, it's time to open up MMM too! Fitter and more enthused about music than ever, thanks to MMM, myself and my husband and tech support Nev, now want to bring MMM to a wider audience. Please follow us on Instagram, tell your raving friends about us, and join us for your free taster session.
Who is The Passion8 Programme for?Everyone who wants to improve their sex life, whatever their gender, orientation or relationship status. You do need to be coming from a place of "I'm not satisfied and I feel there is more for me..." or similar, not from a place of unresolved trauma. If you feel held back by something you've not had the support to deal with, you need to address that first, with therapy or counselling. Coaching (which is what Passion8 is) works for people who are ready and able to take active steps forward, but want/need support in doing so.
"I'm currently single - is there any point in doing Passion8 now?"Being single is actually a GREAT time for this. You can be super-honest with yourself about what you want and need, without taking a partner into account. Imagine going into your next encounter or relationship empowered with that knowledge, along with the communication skills the course will teach you?
"I'd love to do the course, but my partner won't be up for it"I've seen relationships transformed by one partner taking the course (typically a female partner in a heterosexual relationship who hasn't necessarily told her boyfriend/husband that she's even doing the course...). Sometimes it takes one partner to be brave and take a step like this initially alone.
"Will I have to do a full-moon dance, buy a crystal yoni egg, and other woo-woo stuff?"No! The Passion8 Programme uses coaching methodology and is based around verbal and written exercises and learning. Of course if singing, dancing and crystals are your thing, you're welcome to add those. The course supports you in finding what’s right for YOU.
"Are there practical exercises? I don't think I'm ready for that"No, there are no practical exercises or homework. There is plenty that may inspire you to explore practically! - but that's entirely up to you, at your own pace.
"Something bad happened to me and I haven't been able to enjoy intimacy since. Will this course help?"The fact you're even considering this course suggests you're on a path of healing, which is great. However, coaching is suited to people who are ready to look positively into their future and take active steps forward. If trauma from the past holds you back, then counselling/therapy with a trained psychotherapist is a better first step. [In the UK, mental health charity MIND has a comprehensive list of support organisations. Search engines will help you find similar in other countries.]
“What if I have questions during the course – do I get 1-2-1 time with you?”I am available throughout the course on email to answer quick questions (ones that will take me less than ten minutes to reply to). If you need more in-depth support, you can arrange a 1-2-1 session with me at a special Passion8 members' rate.
“What if I sign up, then am disappointed?”If you engage fully with the course, and at the end don't feel it has had any beneficial effect on your sexual life, I'll give you your course fee back (see T&Cs for more on this here). Note - no-one has ever taken me up on this, in fact I often get told after just a couple of modules that the course fee has already been wort every penny!
"Do I get access to the materials after the course ends?"Yes, you get access to the video presentations for four additional weeks. You can download the workbooks and resource lists to keep forever.
