Specifics about what happens with hormones during perimenopause and menopause

2. Interventions
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and suggested alternatives that might be appropriate for some people

3. Training for the Menopausal Athlete
Training needs change due to changing bodies. Specific types of training matter in menopause. HIIT vs long endurance? Strength, power, plyometrics, jumping, or running? What's best? There's research to back up the most optimal training! 

4. Nutrition for the Menopausal Athlete
Nutritional aspects of menopause, especially in regards to protein intake, and information about some of the fad diets out there 

5. Case discussions/questions

What You Will Learn:

Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to: 

  • Understand that menopause is not a barrier to training and racing.
  • Design or suggest training that can fit any stage of life.
  • Make dietary changes or suggestions to match what is going on with the body.
  • Make appropriate decisions about how to train, when to train, how hard to train, and kind of training to do.
  • Understand the specific nutritional needs of menopausal athletes.
  • Explain the specific changes that happen with hormones during perimenopause and menopause and how this affects all systems - muscular, brain, metabolism, and more.
  • Share the knowledge that training in the 40s, before full menopause, increases optimal effects and prevents or slows down deleterious changes.
  • Understand that the timing and type of protein intake matters.
Learn ways to problem solve a variety of sexual health issues.

What people are saying:

Finding out the importance of a specific 20-30 minute HIIT interval workout being way more beneficial than endurance exercises or boot camp classes was mind blowing. The science is so important. This is the info we all need to know!
Thank you so much for that amazing webinar with Stacy. It stimulated my mind a lot!
This will absolutely change the way I work with my clients to give them more direct results, backed by science! Game change! Thank you! 
Feel comfortable navigating psychosocial nuances while learning practical skills to do so.
