Online workouts designed and taught by qualified menopause fitness specialists.
Menopause - the time when a woman enters a new phase of her life and as a result, gets to rewrite the rule book!
Menopause is a pivotal phase in a woman's life, a period where our bodies undergo profound changes as hormones shift and the familiar routines of our younger years can become less effective.
During this time, which can last for almost a third of a woman's life, the significance of doing three key types of movement becomes more evident than ever.
The good news is that you can wave goodbye to the classes you ENDURE and embrace shorter, more menopause friendly ones to suit the new you.
I'm Sam Palmer, a nurse, teacher, coach and menopause fitness and lifestyle coach. And the creator of the future - your fitter future.
For the last ten years my work has been focussed on helping women like you, transition through the menopause feeling empowered, supported and heard.
I have dedicated almost 30 years to helping women find the JOY in fitness and movement.
But about 15 years ago, as a marathon runner who found herself getting SLOWER and FATTER, I realised something was amiss.
My niggles were becoming injuries, my trendy lower carb diets were leaving me exhausted and fitness had become a chore - not a pleasure.
And then I got really worried when I found myself running in wiggly lines.
Unbeknown to me - at 42, this was probably my first peri-menopause symptom. Brain scans confirmed nothing amiss but I wanted to know more.
I signed up to a course to understand as much as I could about menopause and now almost 15 years later, I have helped thousands of women navigate this lifestage - can I help you?

HELP - I've got an injury so although I want to join, I'm terrified!
Hardly anyone we teach has no injury. Most of us have 'noisy knees', some have had serious knee injuries and may even need surgery. Lots of ladies have struggled with frozen shoulder, neck aches or back pain. And it goes without saying that all our exercises are pelvic floor friendly, unless we say otherwise and even then we gives other options.
By the time we reach our mid to late 40's and beyond, there is bound to be something that causes you worry.
Please be reassured that in most cases, we are able to make adaptations for those niggles so you can enjoy doing what you CAN do, rather than letting it control what you can't.
Sound like just the thing you have been looking for?
We offer cost effective monthly and annual fitness packages which allow you unlimited access to all our classes - LIVE and On Demand to suit your busy schedule.

That way you can try a range of classes and work out if we are the right place for you!
How it works throughout the year.
Our classes are taught in 6 week blocks, each block may have a theme or a focus, and some are progressive, like a mini course.
There will be less live classes over the Easter, Half Term and Summer holiday periods as our instructors take holiday - but recorded workouts are available for you to follow.
How do you know which class/s to do?
If you are starting from a 'no exercise' base, we recommend choosing two classes each week, you can build up slowly to 3 or 4 when you feel ready.
You might decide you'd like to focus on getting STRONGER in which case choose AAA, or perhaps you like something to get your heart rate up, in which case choose HIIT.
Our Yoga, Stretch and Relax and and Pilates classes are SLOWER and work well as a second or third class in your week.
Please feel free to pop us an email if you'd like advice, we are very happy to give it!
