Today I invite you to listen to a sneak peek of a menopause fitness coaching session from the exclusive STRONGER coaching call library. What questions do women in a 12-week strength training program with varying levels of experience with strength training ask? This is where you find out. The actual coaching session isn’t edited. It occurred on zoom with the option of joining by phone or any device with attendees on camera or not, using chat to ask questions so that sound distractions are minimal. 

I’m seriously pulling back the curtain today with this episode. I’m sharing one of the live coaching calls for our Stronger 12-week program for women in menopause. In this particular call I answered questions about: 

  • Exercise form 

  • Hip mobility 

  • Lunges 

  • Progression 

Before we dive into this episode, it might help to know that every Saturday the menopause fitness coaching sessions for STRONGER are more action-oriented and held in space so I can not only answer but demonstrate form, technique or offer an alternative to an exercise that isn’t working for someone. What you’re hearing is a Tuesday call so there are some follow up questions based on the Saturday session. 

STRONGER’s Menopause Fitness Coaching Sessions 

Every week the calls occur Tuesday - Saturday and were purely coaching from our STRONGER 12-week participants. That is, I don’t bring an agenda or content. I suggest Saturdays are dedicated to demonstrations and questions about comfort or improving form. I also do contribute something extra that may be related, I let participants' questions guide the content. It’s about answering your questions in real time. 

This episode is a peek from week 5. The questions in the first weeks have ranged from: 

  • Protein - how much and how much will we absorb

  • Eating before and after workouts

  • Before strength vs before HIIT or walking 

  • Why certain exercises may not feel good and what to do instead

  • Muscular fatigue 

Questions were submitted via the live calls in the chat on Zoom. We’ve had a few questions asked in the Facebook group to be answered on the calls. And there were a few individuals choosing not to use FB and who are on the other side of the world that need to send questions to our support team that made it to the Question list so they can find them in the library. 

To see a real example of how we label each call with hints at the content I’ve included a picture (above) of what it looks like when you have this library. The Library is included in this 12-week session of STRONGER. You get all 60 sessions to click to whenever you want them. You’ll always have access to them there in the courses area. (valued at $497)
