In the episode, I am joined by sports medicine researcher and past president of the American College of Sports Medicine, Dr. NiCole Keith, Ph.D. to discuss the elusive topic of Exercise for Post-Menopausal Women.
Dr. NiCole Keith is a Professor from the Department of Kinesiology and associate dean of faculty affairs in the School of Health & Human Sciences at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. Keith is dedicated to research and programming that increases physical activity participation, improves fitness, and positively influences health outcomes while addressing health equity.
In the episode we get into:
- What got NiCole interested in pursuing this topic of exercise in menopausal and post-menopausal women?
- How can a woman in these stages of life (or approaching these stages) begin to create an effective movement regimen? What should they keep in mind when choosing their activities and workouts?
- The million-dollar question: what are the best types of exercises for menopausal and post-menopausal women?
- Are there any health risks that women should be aware of? Is there ever a reason not to engage in physical activity?
- What is health equity and what can we do in our own communities to help?
