Motivate Me NZ (MMNZ) is owned by Maree Findlay and Kim Mills and is the largest women's wellness support network in New Zealand. A central hub for women's health, wellbeing and discovery, Motivate Me is a community of free thinking women supporting each other towards a healthy, confident and successful lifestyle. It's a place for women looking to unleash their potential and live lives to the full!
Motivate Me is for all women (whether from NZ or abroad) who, like ourselves, find working long hours and balancing the commitments of family make being healthy an endless battle.
For us, Motivate Me NZ always has been and remains about connecting with people and being part of a positive team. This is not a diet or a fitness program, it's a way of life, a motivated life. This hub of wellness inspires women to view themselves and the world differently, realising and unleashing their potential, striving to become the best versions of themselves, living successful, fearless, passionate lives, right here in NZ!
You can achieve anything you want, if you just believe you can. Self-belief is hard and where most of us struggle but if we don't tackle this first, achieving anything in life will be difficult. Believe in yourself, your abilities and your goals!
Motivate Me NZ is all about being part of a community. Online and in person we support, encourage and motivate! Surrounding yourself with positive people is crucial to the success of your goals and self-discovery journey.
When you Believe in yourself, and you Belong to something positive that motivates you, you will Become the embodiment of that vision. You deserve to be successful and already have the power to achieve anything - let's just work on unleashing it!
Hi, we are Maree and Kim, sisters living in opposite ends of New Zealand.
Our motivation behind owning Motivate Me NZ is wanting as many women as possible to come on a journey of health and wellness with us. We want to encourage people to engage with the MMNZ community, get involved in the community and feel the amazing support and wealth of information that as members we all share. Motivate Me NZ is about all women. Every woman should feel empowered and encouraged to achieve anything she wants to regardless of age, ability and size.
Maree lives in Auckland whilst Kim lives in Wanaka. Maree has two daughters one living at home and one living in Spain. Kim has two sons’ both at home and attending school.
Hiking, walking and adventure racing is what we enjoy. We enter races at different ends of the country so that we both get to travel. We have completed the Motatapu Miners Trail, The Mule Queenstown and recently our first Multisport the Spring Challenge 2016 in Rotorua.
We aren’t the fastest in the pack and are generally happy if we start and finish on the same day. Our point is you don’t have to be the best to compete it’s about entering and completing what you can. Mindful movement is a daily mantra of ours.
I’m am Maree and Kim’s older, wiser sister. I live in Auckland but love to escape to Matarangi in the Coromandel as much as I can with my family.
I love to go for long walks, hikes, a very slow run, it’s a great opportunity to clear your head and a chance to take time to centre one’s self.
Last year entering some adventure races around the country with Kim was a highlight, these are a real family affair with strong family support cheering us on from the side-lines.
I’m the Kim part of the team. I live in Wanaka, with my family. We love living here with the abundance of outdoors for us to participate in, although we frequent Matarangi in the Coromandel for our beach fix too.
My favourite sport would be trail walking – and I dapple in interval running although that saying “slower than a herd of turtles in peanut butter” really does apply to me. But I am all about jumping in with both feet and giving it ago.
A special thanks to the partners of Makaia Carr and Motivate Me
