Exercise at the menopause

When you reach your 40s or 50s, you may feel it’s time to think about taking more regular exercise. The right kind of exercise can benefit your health in many ways, from lowering your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease to reducing mood swings and boosting your energy levels. But what is the right type of exercise for you and how can you get more active in general?

In the Autumn 2017 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, menopause fitness expert Julia Wilmott discusses how exercise can improve the health and wellbeing of menopausal women – and why. She covers the best types of workouts, exercise for relaxation, the ‘do’s and don’ts’ and where and when to exercise.

“Exercise doesn’t have to be a chore,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “It’s a case of finding the right activity for you, as if you do something you enjoy you’re more likely to do it regularly. You could take up dancing, go to a gym, have a daily walk or try yoga or pilates.”

The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women and healthcare professionals.
