How To Build Muscle, Strength & Power In Menopause

JJ Virgin

It is an honor to welcome a true trailblazer in the world of health and wellness to our podcast today – none other than JJ Virgin herself. She is one of the first voices I ever heard on a podcast. I can’t even remember how I found her, but it was somewhere around 2016 and I was looking for answers about fitness and nutrition for women over 40. And she was there to give the simple truth and put the science into words I could understand at the time, while also giving real practical advice to show me how to implement her tips that were the “little hinges that swing the big doors”.

I am pretty sure you already know JJ, but if you don’t, listen up and start following her and her podcast now called “Well Beyond 40”, which has over 1000 episodes and over 17 million downloads. JJ Virgin is a triple-board certified nutrition and fitness expert. I would also add biohacker to that list. JJ is a passionate advocate of the healing power of nutrition, and she is on a mission to change the way the world sees aging and longevity. 

She has launched 3 multimillion-dollar businesses and founded the Mindshare Collaborative, which is the most influential professional community in health. She also launched more New York Times bestselling books, PBS specials, and 7 figure brands than any other community.

JJ co-hosted the show Freaky Eaters and was the nutrition expert for Dr. Phil’s Weight Loss Challenges. She’s also been on Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray, Access Hollywood, and The TODAY Show. She’s an international speaker and has shared the stage with the biggest of the big like Tony Robbins, Gary Vaynerchuk and Dr. Mark Hyman.

You’ll want to surely pick up her NY Times bestsellers like the Virgin Diet, The Virgin Diet Cookbook, JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet, and JJ Virgin’s Sugar Impact Diet Cookbook. She also has an amazing book called the Miracle Mindset, which shares the powerful lessons in strength and positivity that she learned after her 16 year old son Grant was the victim of a brutal hit-and-run accident and nearly died.
