A community for active women navigating the menopause transition
Your place to connect with experts offering evidence-based solutions, like-minded women committed to empathy without negativity, and a team who will help you create a plan!
We have more information than ever. Now the challenge is navigating the bullsh*t and knowing how to apply the right information. To be your best as a menopausal woman, you need to figure out…
- What, if any, hormones are right for you.
- How to apply the nutrition guidelines for menopausal women to your specific needs.
- What strength training regimen to follow.
- Ways to troubleshoot the most common and disruptive menopausal symptoms.
- How to put it all together in an easy-to-follow plan.
And maybe most of all, you need people who just get you. People who understand that you're navigating a big life change. One that your mother never talked about. One that society has treated with shame. One that tells women in middle age that our best years are behind us.
Not anymore. You've got a lot of life left to live. We've got the place for you to get the information you need to LIVE IT!
