Maximising Menopausal Workouts

25th May 2023 12:30 BST


Menopause affects people in different ways.

And while regular physical activity is essential for combatting its side effects, the drive to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle during this time can often be depleted or completely nonexistent. Couple this with working on a remote site where the opportunities to exercise may be limited, and you could be caught in a vicious cycle of low motivation and unhealthy habits.

Sheona King, Level 4 Senior Health and Activity Practitioner, is on hand to help break the cycle and maximise your workout whether you’re on or offshore. In this eye-opening webinar, Sheona will discuss the most common symptoms of menopause, including hot flushes, sleepless nights and brain fog, and how committing to a consistent workout routine could be the key to better physical and mental health.

During the hour, she’ll uncover:

  • How regular physical activity can help to ease menopause symptoms and reduce specific health risks
  • The best types of exercise for perimenopausal and menopausal women (and the worst!)
  • Steps you can take to stay safe and feel more comfortable exercising in front of your colleagues while on a remote site
  • Additional steps you may need to take to help your body recover after a workout

Whether you’re going through menopause or would like to support colleagues going through it, Sheona’s talk is the ideal place to find information, practical advice, and support.
