Menopausal Weight Training
When experiencing the menopause, women often tend to lose muscle mass and gain abdominal fat around perimenopause and menopause. Regular weight training helps boost your metabolism and stimulate muscle building cells. Weight training also helps provide the strength building stimulus women need as estrogen declines.
By introducing heavy weights into your exercise regime, bone loss can be slowed down and help lower the risk of fractures and osteoporosis. Don’t forget that exercising regular boosts your mood and helps ward off depression.
Learn to train with dumb bells, kettlebells, barbells with form and effectiveness in our 5-week clinic, all whilst building confidence, self esteem & support groups!

"We have learnt so much from you both and now feel empowered to get our bums into that gym and hit the weights! It’s such a brilliant idea, so relevant for women of our age, and we now know what we are doing in the gym. We’ve both been telling everyone all about it and spreading the word!"
"I found the Menopausal weight training class really good. It was very informative and I learned a lot about the machines and free weights. I found both instructors yourself and Claire both great to work with. I now feel confident to go in the gym knowing what I am doing. It is also great knowing that you can approach anyone with any questions at any time!"
"I really enjoyed the course. I experienced you as warm and very encouraging and also patient especially when I could not remember the instructions! I was a bit anxious about attending a gym initially but I need not have worried, the Cyclopark is a very welcoming space. I’m really pleased I attended this course and I’m looking forward to using the gym and getting into a routine with my weight training (I still haven't quite got there yet re the routine but know I will). I am recommending this course and your gym to friends!"
