During menopause, your body goes through huge hormonal, emotional and physical changes which can last for years. The list of symptoms of perimenopause and menopause is long and varied, with everything from trouble sleeping, weight gain, anxiety, brain fog, headaches, hot flushes, skin problems and more.
Everyone’s menopause journey is unique, and symptoms are much more severe for some than others. Whatever you are feeling, personal training is one of the best ways to protect your physical and mental strength for the years to come.
Did you know? Women lose bone rapidly in the first few years after the menopause. One-to-one personal training sessions can ensure that you build bone strength at a time when your body may need it most.
Focusing on your physical and mental strength can give you the energy from within to enjoy life again.
In a tailored, one-to-one personal training session, we focus on:
- Building strength, especially through weight-bearing exercises to focus on bone health
- Gaining confidence
- Generating energy
- Kickstarting metabolism to increase the ability to lose weight
- Improving nutrition
- Emotional support
- Finding help from other practitioners if required
Especially if you are worried about weight gain, we’ll include lifting weights using kettlebells and resistance bands to regulate hormones, as well as cardio workouts such as HiiT at the right stage of your fitness journey.
If you’re feeling the symptoms of menopause, personal training can help you:
- Burn calories more efficiently
- Improve and strengthen posture
- Boost self-esteem
- Improve heart health
- Boost bone density
- Support joint movement
- Boost happy hormones (your endorphins) and overall wellbeing
