Hello, I’m so glad you’re here!

Welcome to Fit Fab Fiftyish, a fitness and wellbeing blog for women 50+. Fit Fab Fiftyish aims to encourage and support women to be active, healthy and happy in midlife. 

Midlife is a time when our years of experience and wisdom can give us strength and confidence to really know who we are and what we want from life. It can be a time of transformation and renewal, a time to step into our power and take up space in the world.

It can also be a no-so-fabulous time. You or your partner might be facing health challenges or you may be caring for ageing parents. As if peri-menopause and menopause isn’t challenging enough! 

Add to the mix a society that largely ignores us, doesn’t understand us and doesn’t value us. To that I say, “Look out, I’m only just getting started”!

About Me

Exercise was never my thing and I had no interest in making it my thing.  

By my late 40s my lifestyle habits were raising all the red flags.

I didn’t realise it at the time but perimenopause was also kicking in. Hello mood swings and insomnia! 

In 2012 I gave up smoking, cut back on the wine and walked into a gym on impulse. I told the willowy PT I wanted to get fit. Actually, I didn’t really want to but I knew I had to.  

In the ten years since I’ve found ways to move that not only have improved my fitness but also make me feel healthy, confident and calm. I’ve discovered I can run (slowly, but I can run and so can you) and I can lift weights. I’ve also reignited my love of yoga that begun in my teens when my mum introduced me to this beautiful, ancient practice.  

I’m now a registered yoga teacher and I’m studying to be a group exercise instructor. 

I love helping women like you thrive in midlife. I promise no-nonsense and achievable ways for you to move and feel good. Ways that will support you at this time of your life. 

That might be a yoga class designed with you in mind, or tips to get started with strength training, running or stand up paddleboarding.  

You might like to start by checking out my blog, or some resources I’ve compiled for you about midlife, menopause, and all things fitness and yoga.

Thanks for dropping by!

Love, Sally xx
