The Menopause and Exercise with Go Girl Physique

The menopause and exercise go hand in hand for a smoother ride through perimenopause and Menopause.

Regular exercise is important for women of all ages, but especially during menopause. When most women go through menopause, they experience a natural decline in estrogen, which can lead to bone loss, weight gain, and an increased risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast cancer.

Going to the gym and engaging in regular physical activity can help mitigate the negative effects of menopause on the body. Exercise can help protect against bone loss, improve muscle mass and strength, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. In addition, regular exercise can help improve mood, reduce stress, and boost overall well-being!

It is important that we, as women, are encouraged to go to the gym during menopause to support our overall health and well-being. It’s important to work with a healthcare provider and a fitness professional such as your team here at Go Girl Physique to create a safe and effective exercise program that meets their individual needs and preferences.

At Go Girl Physique, as we are a women’s only gym, our trainers specialise in creating workout programs tailored to each individual’s needs, focusing on exercises specifically for women. Of course, we can structure your workout routine around what exercise program your health care professional has prescribed.

Exercise can be extremely beneficial for women going through menopause, as it can help alleviate symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, and insomnia. Regular exercise can also help maintain bone density and reduce the risk of osteoporosis, which is more common in postmenopausal women.

It’s important to note that the type and intensity of exercise may vary depending on the individual’s overall health and fitness level. Some women may need to modify their exercise routine to accommodate changes in their body due to menopause. If you’re unsure what type of exercise is safe and effective for you, perhaps, once again, have a chat to your healthcare professional and the team at Go Girl Physique can work with both advice from your health professional and yourself to create a suitable program for your individual needs.
