Perimenopause, the time leading up to menopause, can feel like an emotional and physical rollercoaster. Women often experience perimenopause symptoms for up to a decade before the menopause happens—that is, when your periods actually stop. But it will come as no surprise to Coach readers that exercise can be an invaluable tool to help you navigate this uncertain time.

To help you get started, menopause fitness and wellbeing coach Holly Hones has developed a specialized program for perimenopausal women. The four-week program is available on the audio-based fitness app WithU and features three workouts per week, all led by female instructors. It’s available now on the free version of the WithU app (full access to WithU costs $9.99/£9.99 a month or $79.99/£79.99 a year) and individual workouts are also available on demand.
