Getting Ahead of Menopause – 4 week rolling program*
Because of the drop in estrogen levels, we women can experience mood swings, hot flashes, weight gain, sleep loss, fatigue and increased risk of bone loss and heart disease. Studies support using strength training and cardiovascular exercise to help slow down the process of bone loss. Weight gain in women 40 years and older is directly linked to higher risks of heart disease. Research shows that consistent weight lifting and cardio exercise can produce a marked decrease in total cholesterol levels and other cardiovascular disease risk factors. Another benefit of exercise is a reduction in hot flashes, mood swings, irritability and fatigue. This class will offer up 30 minutes of weight bearing exercise and 30 minutes of interval training twice a week to optimize benefits of exercise for peri menopause and menopausal women.
Starts August 22 (rolling, you may start any week)
Tuesdays & Thursdays at 12pm
