Exercise to help with menopause weight gain

Weight gain is often sighted as one of the symptoms of menopause. Implementing an exercise routine is often recommended to counter menopausal weight gain. But what exercise is best? Should you start slow with walking? However many recommend high-intensity exercises. And others suggest that women over 50 should hit the weights and not the treadmill.

What is right for you? A personal trainer that creates a customized workout just for you is the most obvious answer. And if that personal training center has nutrition coaching with a Board Certified Doctor of Natural Medicine … all the better! IQfit has exactly that! At IQfit we blend fitness training and natural medicine to create a personalized plan that gets the best results.

With the loss of estrogen hormones during menopause you might see increased belly fat or even be at a higher risk of type 2 diabetes. Many women notice muscle loss and feel visibly weaker and could develop osteoporosis. Others might have aching joints and back pain. And most complain of a loss of energy and vitality. A customize two-prong approach to fitness and natural medicine can help reduce or eliminate many of these symptoms of menopause.
