Supporting Female Participants Through the Menopause

… for me, working out isn’t just for Christmas and New Year. It’s not just to get in the bikini. It’s to stay alive longer, and I really enjoy the way that it helps my head stay clear of negativity. It’s just a win-win in every sense."

Davina McCall

The menopause is no easy ride. 80% of women in their 50s experience symptoms including hot flushes; sleeping problems and weight gain, through to brain fog, exhaustion and night sweats, all of which can affect their activity levels and general well-being.

Understanding the women you coach

Midlife women are often ‘caught in the middle’, performing a balancing act of work, supporting their parents and their teenage children. This is ‘squeezing’ their me time and adding additional pressure to what is already a stressful stage of life.

To help with this, you can provide holistic support and guidance to build their confidence, physical health and general well-being.

Use our learning journey to develop your knowledge and understanding to confidently coach menopausal women.
