The Menopause Coach
I am middle-aged, I am peri-menopausal, I am a women in her 50s and I am where a lot of women are today.
Did you know there were 477 million women suffering from menopause in 2005
Skip ahead to the year 2025, the World Health Organisation estimates that 1.1 billion women worldwide will be aged 50 or over and postmenopausal.
There are approximately 4 million women between the ages of 40 and 65 in Australia and over 1 million in New Zealand right now who are somewhere between pre and post menopause. One of the many symptoms is weight gain
No, menopause itself does not actually cause the weight gain, but a hormone imbalance can cause weight gain.
So here is what happens in the lead up to menopause.
Hormones, oestrogen and progesterone fluctuate, which influence the hormones insulin and cortisol, eventually leaving a woman insulin resistance and stress sensitive
The result is:
Belly fat and other menopausal symptoms
It will be my role as a coach and mentor to help you through this period with ease and help minimise weight gain.
The average age of menopause is 51 years old however it can range anywhere from the ages of 40 to 58 years old.
I have been a Pilates instructor/personal trainer for 20 years. A large part of my customer base have been athletes and very strong, frequent exercisers. Last year I looked around at my clientele and noticed a lot of the women are 40+ and they are fabulous.
Forever thinking myself young, when did I turn 50? I don’t feel 50, I don’t look 50, but, jeez this is me, this is my demographic. I am one of those statistics I mentioned above.
I had the knowledge to help myself, so, why not share it.
I needed to make some changes to my business and within myself. I had the knowledge to help this age group. I embarked on a new exercise system aimed to this fabulous but sometimes self neglected age group. I ran a 10 week course with much success that it spurred me on to see what else I could value add. With some extra education in understanding hormones and menopause from the wonderful Lynn Miller and Paul Newson of Menofitness, I’m on my way to becoming a menopause coach.
I am one month into my training, Soaking up every bit of extra information I can sink into my menopausal brain and loving it.
I will be ready in another 4 to 8 weeks to take my pilgrimage into the world of menopause makeovers. Will you join me on my new path. I am looking forward to meeting like-minded beautiful women on this new journey.
Todays blog idea came from another course that Paul recommended we do in one of his live feeds. How to launch your expert business in the next 30 days. Finding your voice is first, in order to share your knowledge. Makes sense. It suggested there were three types of people.
those who like to be on camera.
I am the writer. Welcome to my first blog sharing my journey into hormone coaching. I will share what each new day brings as I take this new direction in business and in life. Wish me luck.
I’ll finish this by sharing a little humour with you, this is lovely and made me laugh because only women understand this !
If my body was a car, I would be trading it in for a newer model. I’ve got bumps, dents, scratches & my headlights are out of focus. My gearbox is seizing up & it takes me hours to reach maximum speed. I overheat for no reason and every time I sneeze, cough or laugh either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!
Have a beautiful day ladies ❤️❤️❤️❤️
