Menopausal Health and Fitness Coaching

The menopause is not an on and off switch. It can last for years and the only thing you can be certain of is change. Knowing about your menstrual cycle and how the menopause is impacting you personally can help to improve your health, eat better and increase activity levels.

Being able to adapt to the changes your menopausal body needs often requires a shift in mind set. Which can be time consuming and take up a lot of energy to change and create new habits.

There comes a point when what has worked consistently in the past to maintain your weight and fitness levels is no longer working in your menopausal years.

We are used to the following beliefs:

  • eat less and exercise more,
  • no pain, no gain,
  • go hard or go home,
  • speed up or kick start your metabolism.

The above is probably the worst advice that you can take when you are menopausal, as it’s misses the first step of balancing your hormones. However, for many of us that is what we have been doing for years. It is hard to change tack but also where do you start. What does balancing your hormones really mean in everyday life?

Does this sound familiar:
•You are eating healthily but still putting on weight, particularly around your middle. You get to the gym when you can but it doesn’t feel enough to make any difference.
•You feel stuck in your menopausal journey that you probably don’t want to be is as you are too young!
•You don’t have the time to search for solutions which all seem to be quick fixes and no long lasting results.
•How can you be as healthy as you can without the menopause taking over your life and your waistline? It feels like a full time job!

If you are struggling to be as healthy and fit as you would like, coaching can help you work out what practical changes and tweaks you need to make that fit into your lifestyle and improve your wellbeing.

In 2006 I trained as Pilates teacher and Personal Trainer, leaving the world of IT behind. While most of my clients successfully lost weight – usually men, a number did not – usually women. This was despite the women following exercise programmes and restricting their calorie intake. The “Eat Less and Exercise More” mantra was not working for everyone.

This interest lead me to concentrate on attending courses and researching hormones and how they impacted the body and weight loss, for women in particular. And while how we eat and exercise is important, so is our lifestyle and the way we choose to live our lives. Balancing hormones may sound complicated and it can be but simple self-care works wonders for many of us. I would love to help you figure out how you can be healthy too!

Here is one of my clients talking about our coaching sessions:

“Three months ago I was feeling dreadful. I was desperately seeking a fix and swinging from bread to fruit to chocolate to make myself feel better. Within a couple of weeks of following Sam’s advice I was feeling so much better (and looked trimmer) and had more energy. I have learned so much about blood sugar swings and how to manage my body. Increasingly I feel I am in control of my eating regime and that sensible weight loss is happening surely and steadily. My life is a little complicated but Sam is never judgemental and the coaching sessions are keeping me focussed on my long term objective of feeling better and losing weight.” Barbara
