Week beginning 17 October, World Menopause Day and no classes from 24 – 28 October


Welcome to you if you have joined one of our Do Fitness classes recently. I send our newsletter out every Sunday morning, so you know what is coming up in the next week and of course the timetable is on Gymcatch via Timetable and book a class – Do Fitness with Diane Oakden. I also try to include health and fitness tips for any issues that have an impact on my class members.

World Menopause Day 2022 – Tuesday 18 October
Promo for World Menopause Day 2022: ‘Menopause: Continuing the Conversation’ – Bing video
There has been so much more awareness of the impact of menopause on women’s lives recently. Davina McCall did an amazing job to raise awareness with her television programme: Davina McCall: Sex, Mind and the Menopause – All 4 (channel4.com). The impact on work, relationships and mental health cannot be underestimated and the better informed we are the better we are prepared to look after ourselves and the women around us. I am supporting an event on Tuesday organised by the Primary Care Network of an number of local GP practices.
