In many cultures, just like at puberty and at childbirth the menopause is treated as a reason for celebration.

It is seen as the start of a new life phase, something positive - to be approached with enthusiasm with new energies.

Unfortunately in Western cultures there is a tendency for this mid-life period to be seen more as the start of decline.

So often we see self fulfillment and a downward spiral of 'self-worth' and caring resulting from the negative societal views of the mid-life.

How we exercise; the choice of exercises and the method of exercise is also subject to how we feel about ourselves and therefore it is perhaps not surprising that for many int he West the Mid-Life is a time when attention to exercise and its affects upon our bodies drops.    There is so often a cultural acceptance that in this phase a man develops a beer belly and double chin whilst a woman sees breasts, cheeks and buttocks move 'south'.

In this course we show that it does not need to be like this.  We teach the instructor how to energise their Mid-Life clients, not to allow them to stop or slow down.  

We build upon the physiological realities of the mid life body in this phase to 'change the way that the client exercises to target new areas, with intelligent training and an intelligent fitness regime which is

  • Tough but Energising   
  • Bone building yet Osteoporosis safe
  • Fascia Releasing whilst Hormone Realigning
