Menopause-Specific Fitness Consultation
Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or want to maximize your fitness routine to improve your quality of life in menopause, I can help. Consultations begin with a detailed questionnaire that teaches us both about your particular needs and challenges. Then, over the course of this sixty-minute session, I’ll gather information and devise a roadmap for your fitness journey going forward.
During menopause, your body goes through some drastic changes, and so should your workouts. Private coaching is an excellent way to focus on your specific needs and goals. If you’ve been told you have to put up with a certain amount of repetitive boredom if you’re ever going to see “results," you've come to the right place. I'll design a customized plan for you and provide you with support throughout your journey.
Menopausal Fitness: Training the Menopausal Client
Why Should You Enroll? Do you consider hormonal influences when designing programs for your clients? Have you worked with women in their 40s-60s that are frustrated that the fitness routine that has worked for them for decades is no longer working? Are you interested in learning how to help menopausal women get the most out of their fitness routine? Middle-aged women report a lack of understanding and education as a significant problem when picking a fitness professional. Stand out as a fitness pro that understands that women in mid-life need to be understood as having their own possibilities and challenges.
A short introduction--or refresher course--on the basics of menopause, this course addresses the basics of this much-misunderstood transition in a woman’s life. If you can’t quite get your head around the onslaught of information that greets you in mid-life, this course will help set you straight. Topics include: Stages of menopause and what they mean Menopause symptoms and changes that occur during the transition Hormones involved Hormone replacement treatment (HRT) Mythbusting HRT Alternatives (nutrition, lifestyle, fitness)
Fitness in Menopause Masterclass
I’m incredibly excited to announce the upcoming launch of my first Fitness in Menopause Masterclass. Having earned my PhD studying the effects of fitness training on menopausal quality of life, I know how to create workouts that work, and that’s where we’ll start. But–and this is new–this group will also be a rare combination of education, support, and motivation that goes beyond the strictly physical. With fitness as a baseline, we’ll delve into so many other ways to optimize this next stage of life!
In order to assure plenty of personalized attention, enrollment is limited to ten women. It is my hope that, together, we’ll navigate the challenges and rewards of menopause in a healthy, sustainable, and rewarding way.
The 12-week program will include:
- In-depth and current research-based, interactive curriculum
- 6 virtual one-on-one sessions
- Monthly group Q&A
- Menopause-symptom-specific exercise program with access to your own customized video library *
- Understanding your Quality of Life personality–your motivations, goals, challenges, strengths, and more
- Access to a clients-only Facebook group
- Bi-weekly check-ins
If you’re up for trying something new and are ready to put in the work, sign up to be on the waitlist. This is going to be fun!
