Making Sense of Lifestyle Solutions for Menopause.
Menopause is often misunderstood as merely hot flushes and brain fog, but it involves complex hormonal changes. Declining hormone levels impact various aspects, from muscles and joints to the liver and skin. This has implications for those teaching Group Fitness, as issues like exhaustion, sore joints, and weight gain cannot be overlooked.
Midlife is a critical time for women, marked by fluctuating exercise habits. Understanding the right exercise for this stage is crucial for education and member retention. You cannot miss this masterclass, filled with valuable insights from Dr. Wendy Sweet.

Mastering Getting Up and Down From the Floor in Group Fitness Classes
Getting up and down from the floor is a challenge for most people yet, it is not something that we deliver on a regular basis in group fitness formats. There are very few exercises where getting down to get up is actually a feature of the workout. Experience a range of combinations that build from easy to more challenging that incorporate the full body to lower to the floor and then come back up. Take your squats and lunges to a whole other level which will guarantee functional movement that can be taken straight into everyday life activities.
