Get some bodylove! Our 3 month bodylove program provides space and resources for you to; re-educate, re-connect, re-charge and re-shape your body and your life.

The bodylove coaching program

The 3 month bodylove program helps women take back control and create their own balanced wellbeing routine. We have women leaving the course feeling confident and thriving – both physically and mentally.  We provide tools and strategies to empower women to make choices that leave them feeling happy and nourished – effortlessly.

In the bodylove program we focus on four key areas of your life – menu, movement, mindset and balance.  Within each area we:

  • Look at where you are and where you want to be.
  • Educate you on our key concepts, strategies and tools.
  • Support you to implement change and action to move towards your goals.

What’s included in the bodylove program:

Education & Coaching sessions

The heart of our program is our group education and coaching sessions.  Each week you will have a 1.5 hour education and coaching session with Jacquie and Nicola, as well as guest coaches spread over 3 months.  We will teach you the facts and expose the fiction. We aim to challenge the way you think and act in your daily life and inspire you into action. Expect; weekly tasks, a take home workbook (over 250 pages), recipes, resources and more. By the end of the program, you will understand how to eat, how to most effectively move your body and how to set yourself up for success. The sessions are usually held in Richmond on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

Personal Assessment & Fitness Plan

You will have 2 x 1 hour, one on one coaching sessions, where we get to understand your life: your work, where you live, what you enjoy, what you’re already doing for your body and what you want to achieve.  We then design a fitness and movement plan tailored for you – no one else.

Movement Analysis

You will have a 1 hour, full body movement analysis by the trained professionals at Motion Health.  The analysis aims to answer the questions; Where is your body at and why?  What impact has your life had on the way you move?  Can you touch your toes?  Are your hips in line?  We will assess everything from your flexibility, to core strength, to your pelvic positioning, posture and balance.  We want to make sure you can move well, to avoid injury, pain and make your workouts even more effective.

Group Fitness Training

Get inspired to get moving in a group with women just like you. We run 3 group fitness sessions per week, offering a mix of; running, cardio training, interval training, boxing, pilates and circuit training. Sessions are held at the Botanical Gardens, on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:15am to 7:00am.

Fitbit Movement Tracker

How much do you move each day?  You’ll be fascinated to see the results on your new high tech fitbit movement tracker. Each day your fitbit tracker records your steps taken, distance travelled, stairs climbed, sleep time and sleep quality.  It syncs easily and quickly online for you  – and us – to see.

Mini Detox and healthy eating challenges

Individually, we will design some healthy eating challenges that can include some optional detox elements.  Together as a group we will challenge ourselves to eat well and give our bodies a break from some of the foods and drinks that we don’t make us feel as amazing as we could.

Personal Style Session

Once you’ve rejuvenated from the inside, let’s celebrate this by restyling on the outside! A 3 hour workshop with awesome style experts.  Learn the tips and tricks of the trade, like; how to dress for your body type, what colours look best on you and tips on hair and make up styling.

Ongoing Support 24 / 7

We are here for you, providing support on and offline, 7 days a week. We track your learning, progress and inspire you to keep on track with your goals.  Expect weekly accountability and support systems to keep you motivated, driven to action and most importantly to facilitate change.

Women like to talk.  We love to listen

By listening to what our clients want and tailoring our program specifically for them, we’ve built Carpe Diem Wellbeing and our programs into what they are today.  bodylove is catered specifically for busy women and is delivered in a way that doesn’t require you to put life on hold or make big sacrifices. We do things differently and get results with people who’ve previously fallen off the wagon. From professionals juggling demanding full time jobs and social lives, to those trying to balance family life, here is a snapshot of what our clients thought of the bodylove program.

“Jacquie has a perfect blend of motivation and brutal honesty which cuts through the ‘noise’ and presents you with clear and basic choices to help create a balanced life.” – Brie

“I have learnt so much about nutrition, exercise, movement and mindset and each week I walk away from the sessions feeling invigorated and more committed to looking after myself.” – Rita

“This program has changed my life for the better & I’m not going back.” – Tori

We believe in:


Our Approach

We have a flexible approach. We believe the best teachers show you where to look but don’t tell you what to see. We know you’re an intelligent individual who just need some strategies and space to re-educate, re-connect, re-charge and re-shape. Most importantly to us you are so much more than a number; you’re an inspiration, a testament to why we love what we do. You’re the reason we do what we do.

Who we are

Jacquie Sharples

bffRestrictive diets that exclude important food groups, inefficient and boring exercise regimes and people who make you feel bad about yourself – Jacquie Sharples doesn’t have time for it and neither do you.  She’s about real changes and real results.  She’s about intelligent training with simple steps to get you loving your body – a real body that lives a real life.

Like a lot of women, Jacquie has spent her life juggling.  A double degree in Engineering and Commerce, a national level athlete, full time work as an engineer whilst being a personal trainer, building her own fitness and wellbeing business and of course a busy social life.  While trying to make time to fit it all in, Jacquie learnt first hand why so many women find it hard to give their body the attention it deserves.

You sit down & turn on your computer in the morning & suddenly it’s 5pm & you realise you haven’t eaten or moved.  You leave the office mentally drained, with enough energy for getting out of your work clothes & onto the couch.  And that’s about it!

After years of hearing beautiful, intelligent women lament about the frustration they felt for their bodies and realising most of them were simply confused by the abundance of conflicting information around and were not giving their own wellbeing the time & energy it deserved.

Jacquie decided to focus all of her energy into what she cared most about, helping women see fact from fiction and achieve maximum results in their health and wellbeing.  She created the bodylove program and continues to build Carpe Diem Wellbeing into a business devoted to intelligent wellbeing programs for her clients, a way to live well.  She is the author of the book,  “If your body could talk”.  Check it out at www.ifyourbodycouldtalkbook.com.au.
