At certain milestones in our lives we find that our bodies, desires and lifestyles change. I am very aware that at different ages we experience different levels of mobility, changes in our strength, stamina and health and are effected in terms of what exercise we can carry out effectively and still enjoy. When I was approached earlier this year by a new website, fabafterfifty.com
, to become one of their expert panelists advising exclusively on Movement for over 50s, I thought it was a great idea. Each month we will be offering advice on how movement relates to various lifestyle changes that you might experience and showing you how to make the most out of your body.
Fabafterfifty is a new inspirational website redefining women over fifty, designed by women for women who have a zest for life and know the best is yet to come. Founder, Ceri Wheeldon was staggered at the amount of negative media coverage for this age group, much of which seemed to carry a gently mournful 'past their sell by' subtext. Looking around at friends and colleagues, she saw Fabulous and Vibrant inside and out, which simply wasn’t being reflected in the media so she decided to fight back and fill the gap, ensuring that women over 50 remained visible, valued and a force to be reckoned with. She created Fabafterfifty.com
which will be launched in mid December. The site’s philosophy is simple: to create a community where women can do what they do best - learn, laugh, share, network, make new friends, inspire and be inspired.
Fabafterfifty is content driven, offering input on Health, Fitness, Psychology, Beauty, Fashion, Business, Finance and Relationships and it has already attracted its own prestigious panel of resident experts. In addition to me, there is also medical expert Dr Carol Cooper, make-up artist Ariane Poole, celebrity hairdresser Denise McAdam, psychiatrist Dr Raj Persaud, celebrity stylist Ceril Campbell, nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville, finance expert Sarah Pennells and the Nicky Hambleton-Jones style team.
