Let’s talk about perimenopause

In this episode Kathryn and Gina talk about perimenopause and why strength training and high intensity interval training (HIIT) are really helpful in this phase of life. Gina also shares quite a bit about pre-exercise fuelling and why starting exercise with extra energy is incredibly powerful. Perimenopause is a confusing time, there’s no test to say you are in perimenopause, and it can start earlier than we think. In this podcast you will learn more about why consuming both protein and carbs pre-training is useful, how muscle and metabolism are linked, what true HIIT is, and the importance of progressing gradually to higher intensity.

Gina is a strength & conditioning coach who started lifting at 16 and hasn’t stopped. Experiencing how different training in her teens, 20s, 30s, and now mid-40s encouraged Gina to return to school for exercise science, focusing on women’s metabolism. Her mission is to help reshape what is possible as women age, empowering them as they navigate perimenopause.
