Wonder Woman Workshops

A series of workshops covering the key aspects of health and wellness for active females - from the ‘gym-goer’ right through to the performance athlete.

Women and men are different – physically, biochemically, emotionally and psychologically.  In addition, these things can change on a daily basis (yes, this is normal!) as the by-product of what our hormones are, or are not, doing. This means that when it comes to nutrition, exercise/training, recovery, performance, our mind-set and our response to stress, women and men have different needs holistically.

In these workshops, participants will learn how being a female affects the body’s response to what they eat, how they train and the academic/career workload, and then use this information to maximise energy levels, training outcomes, performance as an athlete… even academic and career goals!

She has carried out and presented research both in NZ and around the world in the fields of human disease (including cancer, neurodegeneration and muscle wastage), exercise, sports nutrition, protein metabolism and energy balance. Her primary passion lies in female-specific health and wellness, particularly in exercising women and athletes and she was an invited speaker at the 2015 Female Health Symposium in Cambridge.
