Badass & Fast After 50, Maintaining Energy, Fitness and Body Composition through menopause – Selene Yeager

My guest today will not only inspire you herself, but she has a whole tribe behind her of inspirational older women who are smashing it through menopause and beyond.

I am talking about Selene Yeager. She is leading the way for so many of us women who are older and active.

Many of her followers are over 50 and 60 and are still professional athletes hitting records, climbing mountains and winning races, outright, over the guys.

I first found Selene through the Feisty Menopause Summit through Dr. Stacy Sims. This summit which gathered incredible speakers on all the topics women going through menopause want to hear sent me one clear message.

Menopause is a time to speed up, not slow down. It showed me an army of women who won’t sit on the sidelines just because society has told them “game over”.

They want to keep in ring smashing their goals and making even bigger dreams after 50.

How can we still keep up, stay feisty and be active despite the trials and tribulations of menopause…IF, that’s a word that’s even in your vocabulary.

Because, frankly speaking, there are plenty of women who are bypassing this completely too.


So, Selene is not only the content creator of the Feisty Menopause group, but she is the host of one of my absolute favorite podcasts – Hit Play, Not Pause.

When we hit menopause, life is really just beginning in many aspects and the way that population aging is going, you’ve got another good 30 – 40 years ahead of you. Why would you want to slow down now?

But Selene is so much more than all of this. She is a top-selling professional health and fitness writer who is practicing what she preaches.

She co-authored the amazing book ROAR with Dr. Stacy Sims and we are now all waiting for their new book to come out..

It’s called Next Level : Your Guide To Kicking Ass, Feeling Great and Crushing Goals Through Menopause And Beyond.

Selene is also an NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) certified personal trainer, USA Cycling licensed coach, Pn1 certified nutrition coach, pro licensed off road racer, and former All-American Ironman triathlete.

Need…I…say….more? She’s badass AND she’s over 50 AND she tells us how she does it.
