June 13, 2022

Global Expert on Exercise Physiology and Nutrition Science, known for her tagline “Women Are Not Small Men”, releases 2nd book to help women maximize wellness and performance through menopause

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – For active women, menopause hits hard. Overnight, their bodies don’t feel like the one they know and love—they’re battling new symptoms, dealing with weight gain, losing endurance and strength, and taking longer to bounce back from workouts that used to be easy. The things that have always kept them fit and healthy just seem to stop working the way it used to.

But menopause doesn’t have to be the end of kicking ass. In NEXT LEVEL: YOUR GUIDE TO KICKING ASS, FEELING GREAT, AND CRUSHING GOALS THROUGH MENOPAUSE AND BEYOND (on-sale: 5/17) by Dr. Stacy T. Sims and Selene Yeager, authors of ROAR, women will learn the underlying causes and the science behind the hormonal changes that occur during menopause, and how to work with those changes instead of against them to minimize symptoms and maximize wellness and performance. Filled with research-backed advice on training, nutrition, sleep, and recovery, as well as sample exercise routines, meal plans, macronutrient planning charts, and case studies from real women Stacy has coached, it’s everything women need to take the menopausal transition in stride.

Change is inevitable—no one keeps getting stronger and faster as they age—but women can still be strong, compete, and find their strength in the second half of their lives. This is the ultimate guide to navigating the next level.
