Menowell - Winter Programme @ Online via ZOOM
‘MenoWell | Laois’ is a 6-week online evidence-based exercise, nutrition, and health education programme promoting wellness for women in all stages of adult life, with a special focus on perimenopause and post-menopause.
This will be the second ‘MenoWell’ programme running in county Laois this year!
This programme will start on Wednesday 8th November at 7pm, and is aimed at women aged 30+ years living in Laois.
Programme Overview:
  • 2 * 40-minute live online women- and menopause-specific multimodal exercise classes per week – Mondays and Thursdays at 8pm.
  • 1 * 30-minute live online women- and menopause-specific health education masterclass per week – Wednesdays at 7pm.
  • An on-demand library of women- and menopause-specific exercise videos and nutrition recipes, as well as recorded health education workshops.
The 40-minute live online exercise classes are hosted via Zoom and are instructed in real-time and include a suitable warm up and cool down. These multimodal exercise classes improve your cardiorespiratory fitness, muscle strength and endurance, balance, and flexibility all within the one class! All exercise classes are designed by clinical exercise physiologists specifically for women of all ages and all fitness abilities, including those living with clinical conditions. The exercise videos included in the on-demand library can be performed at a time and a place most suitable to you, making it as easy as possible for you to be as fit and as healthy as possible, anytime, anywhere.

The 30-minute health education masterclasses are delivered by experts via Zoom and focus on different topics relating to women’s health and the menopause journey including muscle, bone, and cardiovascular health, healthy nutrition, sleep hygiene and self-care. These are recorded so you can watch them back at any time throughout the 6-week programme.

Please note, you will be asked to complete a short-answer online questionnaire before and twice after the 6-week programme to determine the efficacy of this programme on  physical activity participation. All information is kept strictly private and confidential, and only group averages will be shared with the programme funders (no identifiable or individual data will be disclosed).

The ‘MenoWell | Laois’ programme is designed and delivered by EduFIT in partnership with Laois Sports Partnership, and funded by Laois Sports Partnership and Healthy Ireland.
