Joe Wicks really needs no introduction: he’s a fitness coach, presenter and bestselling author who kept the nation moving during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Joe is also one of the expert contributors in Dr Louise Newson’s new book, The Definitive Guide to the Perimenopause and Menopause.
In this episode, Joe and Dr Louise discuss the importance of keeping active, and finding the motivation and time to exercise during the perimenopause and menopause.
Joe offers tips on setting achievable goals, plus beneficial exercises, and they talk about how replacing hormones with HRT will help ease symptoms so women can also better focus on exercise and nutrition.
Joe’s top three tips if you are struggling with motivation to exercise:
- Prioritise your sleep: see sleep as an investment to give you more energy to work out
- Work out in the morning: working out earlier can be transformative to how you take on stress at work, and for your relationships too
- Prep like a boss: meal prepping on a weekend will protect you against fast foods and convenience foods during the week.
