#11 The Positive Impact of Exercise at Midlife with Kate Rowe-Ham
Show Notes

We all know that exercise is important for our general health and wellbeing but it's never been more important than at perimenopause.   So many of us continue moving (or not moving) our bodies in the same way as we did in our 20s and 30s but our changing bodies at midlife means that the type of movement we are doing also needs to change.

This week I chat to personal trainer Kate Rowe-Ham.   Kate is passionate about motivating and inspiring women to move their bodies and helping them find ways to make time to get fit and stay fit, particularly during menopause.  

Kate is a busy mum of 3 and has first hand experience of heading into peri-menopause so knows how some of the symptoms can leave you feeling overwhelmed and anxious. 

Kate is currently launching a new App called Owning Your Menopause, which is an online community supporting women through menopause with workouts, nutritional advice, a weekly clinic and an online community.

In this conversation we delve into the positive impact exercise has, particularly during perimenopause.

We discuss:

  • Why it’s so important to keep moving during perimenopause. 
  • The benefits of weight and resistance training.
  • Why too much running and HIIT training might be doing more harm than good.
  • Why some women experience joint pain and what to do about it.
  • The optimum amount of exercise.
  • What to do when you don't feel like exercising.
