Feedback from Course Participants
“Thankyou so much for sharing your knowledge, experience, and insight into so many important health factors we should consider when training women over 50. From pre, peri-menopause and menopause and the changes of hormones that occur and the knock on effects this has on the body, to frozen shoulders, vagina’s and prolapse, and then to the importance of sleep.
I got a lot of good reminders, some new information that I have already implemented into my pre-exercise questionnaire and lots of food for thought!!
Your wholistic approach to the client is exactly what I loved, and your comment in the last Q&A workshop sums it up really. “Wellness is the new Sexy.
Thankyou again. I look forward to more of your courses in the future.”
