We like to combine our training for women with a gear towards improving their lifestyle and self-worth. Hell knows that many women lose that as their bodies change. As we have discovered, training once you are over 40 will help you discover things that you were possibly never told. I have learned that training is not all about losing weight and being fitter, but the improvement of performance, relationships (especially with your changing body), lifestyle choices, and general well-being.
The outcomes can be extraordinary if you dedicate a little time to yourself. We have learned that at this age we need to take more care of ourselves, apply certain methods to our training and most of all, seek proper recovery, relaxation and nutrition. I hope that our own experiences and training will assist you to find endurance training less arduous, more fun and beneficial.
