Given that we have just launched our national Debunking PCOS tour, I thought this post was pretty darn fitting. As you will learn today, any stress placed on the body, be it physical or emotional, really plays havoc with hormone health and especially those with PCOS (after all, as we're learning in the Debunking PCOS workshops , PCOS when you strip it right back is simply hormone imbalance). Personal Trainer, Rachelle Bayley understand how important it is to recognise that we are all unique and we all require a different regime if we want our bodies firing on all cylinders. So over to her today to discuss how to best exercise for happy hormones.
In the Personal Training world, hormonal health is largely overlooked when it comes to weight loss and the ultimate journey to health. Unfortunately the first time hormonal health becomes a priority is when things go wrong and hormones start playing up and getting in the way of the results we are working so hard for. I used to be guilty of this. I put my hand up here and say that after all of the research I did day in and day out on nutrition, exercise and weight loss in general, hormonal health was something that I knew very little about and a topic that I often avoided with my clients.
Well, didn’t that backfire! Last year I found out that I had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This rocked me like you wouldn’t believe. I had always been in great shape, my body, my mind and my health were always what I would have considered ‘immaculate’. All of a sudden things were changing and seemed to be out of my control (not something I was used to).
