Menopause transition

Do you want to get through the transition/menopause more pleasantly? We can help.


The menopause is not an illness: it is a natural process involving a change in your hormones. At a certain age, ovulation will become less frequent and the hormones oestrogen and progesterone will gradually decrease.
Help with the transition - menopause?

80% of women suffer from menopause. Complaints that may accompany it include poor sleep, hot flashes, aching/stiff muscles, joint pain, weight gain, headaches, mood swings and even heart palpitations.
Hormonal changes slow down your metabolism. This makes it increasingly difficult for your body to burn and process calories. Your muscle mass also gradually decreases. Muscles are needed to maintain a strong body (also for your bones) and are useful for faster burning.


Menopause, or transition, is defined as when a woman has not had a period for 12 consecutive months and has no other causes for this absence of menstruation, such as pregnancy or illness. It is a natural stage in a woman's life where the body stops ovulating and the production of hormones changes. This can cause a lot of different symptoms such as hot flashes, weight gain, mood swings and insomnia. Menopause usually begins around the age of 45 to 55.

Your hormones are changing considerably, especially the production of estrogen and progesterone. There are several medical and non-medical options to reduce symptoms of menopause, including hormone therapy, natural supplements, lifestyle changes (especially sugar and stress reduction) and medication.

Exercise, and strength training in particular, can have a positive effect on women's hormones during and after menopause. For example, it can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis by increasing bone density, reduce symptoms of menopause, improve overall health and well-being and lower the risk of heart disease and other chronic conditions that are more common after menopause.

Strength training can also improve the body's testosterone and insulin sensitivity, which can lead to weight loss and reduce the risk of metabolic disorders such as type 2 diabetes. In addition, strength training can also help reduce hot flashes and improve sleep quality.
