Perimenopause: PT shares why women gain weight & the 'fantastic' exercises to combat it


Fiona revealed that one type of exercise is especially essential: “Strength training is particularly important for women at this time of life because there’s a reduction in oestrogen and that’s a really important hormone for bone density.”

She went on to dispel a common misconception: “When you think of strength training, yes, you can think about gyms with weights, dumbbells, kettlebells and resistance bands.

“But strength training is really is making your body lift a weight that’s more than what it’s used to.”

Therefore, for those nervous about hitting the gym, bodyweight exercises are just as useful when it comes to weight loss during perimenopause.

She stated: “I have to say, as much as I don’t enjoy them, burpees are one of the most fantastic exercises because it combines a push up, a jump and a squat all in one.
