We are SO excited to finally share our 𝗡𝗘𝗪 𝗥𝗘𝗦𝗘𝗔𝗥𝗖𝗛 𝗣𝗨𝗕𝗟𝗜𝗖𝗔𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡 with you!
‘MenoWell’: A Pilot 6-Week Novel, Online, Multimodal Exercise and Health Education Programme for Women in All Stages of Menopause Living in Laois, Ireland.
The results of this pilot study highlight:
A lack of awareness and knowledge of perimenopause and post-menopause in midlife women living in Laois, Ireland.
The need for increased availability and accessibility to reliable and evidence-based information, particularly in advance of the menopausal transition (i.e., women aged 30+).
Significant improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness, upper- and lower-body muscular strength and endurance, lower-back and hamstring flexibility, menopausal symptoms, subjective wellbeing, and physical self-efficacy after the 6-week online ‘MenoWell’ programme.
The need for the future rollout of ‘MenoWell’ to enhance menopause-specific knowledge particularly on menopausal symptoms and chronic diseases associated with menopause and female ageing, to promote the adoption and maintenance of simple, practical, and positive lifestyle behaviours, and to support and achieve optimal physical, mental, emotional, social, and occupational wellness for midlife and older women.
