There are a lot of exercise programs, but there are very few exercise programs created with qualified health professionals. This is important because the exercise component of the program has been designed by a registered exercise physiologist who has expertise in helping women who are forty and over to start a safe and effective exercise program.
Many online exercise programs include very intense exercise that may not be suitable for everyone. Our Foundation Program has a strong emphasis on safe technique, and slowly building muscle.
This program is designed for people who want to get started with strength training. It’s designed for people who are well and want to get stronger. We know that different people will come to this program with different levels of fitness. Some people may use walking as their primary exercise, while others might be doing harder forms of aerobic exercise. Where appropriate there will be more than one option for each exercise so you make it harder if you want more of a challenge.
No. The Foundation Program is designed to be done in the privacy of your own home, so you don’t need to join a gym. It is also designed around the use of body weight resistance, so you don't need any special equipment. At most you may need a study chair, bench or wall to lean against, but the instructions at the start of session will make it clear what's required.
We believe that good health and longevity requires living a healthy lifestyle all year round, and isn't achieved just from one 12-week exercise program. So we're here to create a new path for you to walk: after you have completed our the 12 week Foundation Program, we'll have options for you to keep going at the same level of difficult and intensity, or more if you feel ready for it. And we're always developing more plans and exercise variations to keep you motivated.
Absolutely, the more the merrier! Although we've designed this program specifically with the needs of older women in mind, many of the fundamental principles our program applies are just as relevant for men, so go right ahead and get your hubby involved too.
Doing this program does not constitute a therapeutic relationship. If you have any specific health concerns, we advise seeing your own doctor to discuss this. Similarly if you have any pre-existing injury, we advise seeing your own health professional to advise on any modifications.
Each week we will provide a pre-recorded webinar about a specific topic, such as the science of ageing, nutrition, fasting, having a healthy microbiome and cognitive training. We also provide links where you can provide topic suggestions in advance.
