Move to Improve

CPDs : 1.5

If you are menopausal or post-menopausal – or work with those in this group – Move to Improve is a series for you. In the course, we explore some amazing misconceptions that can drive ways of thinking that can be so limiting to a group of people who have a lot to offer. You’ll discover a whole heap of ways they can:

  • improve the way they move
  • improve the way they think
  • improve the way they feel and experience life.

Suggested Pre-requisite:

  • CIMSPA: L2 Gym / Group Ex

Aims and objectives of course:

  • Know about the anatomy and physiology of muscle and fascia in a way that provides a platform for understanding exercise response.
  • Know the effect exercise has on muscles and fascia over hours, days, weeks and years.
  • Understand the differences in the response to exercise between men and women and also between women of different ages.
  • Understand the effect of menopause on hormones, cognition and emotion and the influence of exercise to improve wellbeing throughout menopause and beyond.
  • Implement ways of exercising that will allow the muscles and fascia to adapt in ways that will make you a better mover regardless of your age.
