The Biggest Mistakes Most Women Make When Working Out For Weight Loss During Menopause

Want to know the biggest mistakes most women make when working out for weight loss during menopause? Read on

  • 😅 They overdo it with cardio because it feels so good when you’ve done a sweaty session at the gym. But what if I told you that there’s a better way to achieve your weight loss goals without the constant pounding of the treadmill? Instead of endless cardio, incorporating a mix of workouts can be more effective and enjoyable.
  • 🙈 They don’t eat enough protein to build muscle and overeat on carbs (typically after that sweaty gym session). Protein is a crucial component of any successful weight loss strategy. It not only helps you build muscle but also keeps you feeling full, reducing those post-workout carb cravings.
  • 💪🏻They don’t focus on resistance training because they’re worried about looking like a bodybuilder. Don’t let the fear of bulking up deter you from resistance training. Building lean muscle can help you boost your metabolism and shape your body in a way that makes you feel confident and strong.
  • 😴They’re expecting overnight results with minimal effort. Weight loss during menopause is a journey, not a sprint. Be patient with yourself, and remember that sustainable results take time and consistent effort.
  • 😮‍💨They lack consistency which hinders progress. Consistency is key when it comes to any fitness journey. Staying on track with your workouts and nutrition plan is essential to seeing long-lasting changes.

Did you know that too much of the wrong exercise can increase your stress levels making it even more difficult to lose weight? When your stress hormone cortisol circulates through your system after a gruelling workout with your personal trainer your 40-something body switches to emergency mode, immediately bringing all fat burning to a halt. Understanding how exercise affects your hormones is vital. The right balance is crucial for achieving weight loss success during menopause.

Most PTs have no clue what storm they kick off in your ageing body and that pushing you to “go the extra mile (literally) on the running machine” can even cause you to store fat. Yes, it can! It’s not uncommon for personal trainers to be unaware of the unique challenges women face during menopause. Being aware of these challenges and making the right exercise choices is essential for your success.

This might not happen to someone in their 20s (like your trainer) but it can certainly affect you while you’re going through the Big Change. Your body is going through a significant transition during menopause, and what worked in your 20s may not be effective now. It’s essential to tailor your workouts to your age and unique needs.

My workouts are designed with your hormones in mind. They are tailored for women like you who are wondering why all those early morning runs result in nothing apart from a huge craving for carbs. I helped women across the globe to successfully lose their menopause weight without excessive workouts or being hungry all the time. If you’re tired of feeling frustrated and exhausted from workouts that don’t yield results, it’s time to consider a different approach. My customised workouts are specifically designed to help women like you navigate the challenges of menopause and achieve lasting weight loss without the need for extreme exercise or constant hunger.
