Moving through Menopause with exercise
Places Leisure has partnered up with Menopause Movement to deliver a first-of-its-kind course for those looking to improve the experience of women going through Menopause. The course, which is funded by Wyre Forest District Council using the National Leisure recovery fund, will deliver weekly sessions that combine education and discussion on topics that matter such as symptom management, hormones and HRT, myth-busting, menopause and mental health and nutrition) with a different physical activity, each taking place in a welcoming, safe, and non-judgmental environment.
“We hope that by the end of the 12 weeks, every participant will have a better understanding of menopause, what happens during each stage, and how exercise can help improve symptoms and quality of life”.
Sarah, Fitness Instructor
"Having highlighted that there was a community need for this we have worked closely with our partners at Menopause Matters to develop an evidence-based class that will provide a safe and welcoming safe to share experiences, learn, and move together“
