Menopause symptoms: know your enemies

Find out more at our TRANSFORM: 6 Program where you will learn what you need to do to reset your body with science-based informative videos and workbooks, weekly group meet-ups, specific fitness exercises, and a personalized app that lets you track your protein, carbs, and fat specific just for you. You deserve better than “average!”

As we lose hormones, starting in perimenopause, our ability to build muscle declines, while at the same time, our breakdown of existing muscle speeds up. Yikes! For this reason, you may be feeling a little squishier. Never fear, though! Science shows that by taking up a strength training routine, you can rebuild some of the muscle that you lost. This is key for keeping yourself strong enough to climb mountains, or just roll around on the floor with the kids—whatever your pleasure! Find out how to maintain your strength in menopause with our 6-week program, TRANSFORM: 6

Metabolism slows and our energy level is just a little bit lower? Losing our “get up and go” is one of our least favorites on the menopause symptom list. You’ll be amazed, however, when you find that simple changes to diet, routine and exercise can help with this symptom. Find out how with our 6-week program, TRANSFORM: 6

Are you finding yourself losing your cool in situations that normally never bothered you? You’re not alone. Anxiety heightens during perimenopause, which can make us shorter-fused. But some of us will tend toward feeling weepier. What’s going on? Menopause, take a bow. Body changes are just as prevalent in that big brain of yours. Find your new bliss with our 6-week program, TRANSFORM: 6, that includes nutrition, exercise, and supplement recommendations for feeling more at peace.

Unfortunately, it’s real. We really can lose up to 30% of brain function after menopause. This can take many forms, including memory issues and concentration challenges. The good news is that exercise has been shown to help improve our ability to focus. Nutrition plays a big role as well. Find out more about optimizing your brainpower during our 6-week program, TRANSFORM: 6.

Insomnia is a common menopause symptom. Sleep is precious. In fact, it is essential for both optimal brain function as well as recovery and repair of muscles after exercise. We  recommend some simple changes to your schedule, meals, and routine. Use your smart watch or other device to track your sleep quality. We have tips and tactics that have worked for many, to help put you back into solid slumber. Find out more at TRANSFORM: 6, our 6-week program for changing your lifestyle, one simple step at a time.

Menopause just wouldn’t be menopause without the legendary hot flashes, right? Also called night sweats or hot flushes, and sometimes accompanied by chills, these seemingly-random body temperature freakouts will have you glaring at your blameless thermostat in the wee hours. Find out how to stay cool during our 6-week program, TRANSFORM: 6
