As you know I mainly work in my pilates sessions with women who are entering their 3rd stage of life, that is the time in or beyond their menopause. So many of these women find their shoulders stiffen up or are painful on movement, they visit their GP’s and are diagnosed with Frozen Shoulder. I […]

Health Food Guide Magazine 6 month subscription £14.97 – I love this monthly magazine. It is full of healthy nutritious recipes which are beautifully designed with the 40+ woman in mind.

Many 40+ women experience unexplained weight gain — especially around the waist and hips — despite their best attempts to diet, exercise like crazy and eating next to nothing. And suddenly, the usual weight loss tool box is empty. “Meno-middle” is one of the most common complaints of perimenopausal women. Yet most women have been […]
It’s been one of those days. You have the best intentions, but you just didn’t manage to live up to them today. Or yesterday. Maybe you’ve been struggling to meet your health and fitness goals at all this week, or maybe you’re looking back on the month just gone and wondering where it all went […]
