“Not your mother’s menopause”

I don’t know about you but I have heard HORROR stories about menopause. From terrible mood swings, to the loss of your sex drive, it seems as if it is all doom and gloom once you hit a certain age. However does it HAVE to be that way? Are we completely out of control of what happens to our bodies by a certain age? My very own GOBGYN, Dr. Rosalind Jackson (“Dr. Roz”), joins us today to put our fears to rest and share what we can do NOW to regain our health and truly experience the best years of our lives.

As an Institute of Integrative Nutrition graduate, an award-winning fitness competitor, and elite obstacle racer. she collaborated on the fitness portion of the book “Fat Flush for Life” with mentor and New York Times Best Selling author Ann Louise Gittleman. This book was listed in Time magazine as one of the top ten diet books for 2009. As a former columnist for 12 years for Ms. Fitness magazine, Linda decided to put everything into a book and it really evolved and became “The Sisterhood of S.W.E.A.T.”.  Her book and the studio are all about helping women build confidence and self-esteem and learning to feel 100% great about themselves.    

Mitchell launched The Chickfit Studio in 2013. She says “At Chickfit, our priority is building women’s self-confidence. Our belief is that their newfound self-love will transfer into giving support and love to one another. Self-improvement equals empowerment.”

Mitchell was inspired to open The Chickfit Studio after she found that deep down in her heart she wanted to do something that was worthwhile and made real, lasting changes in people’s lives. She opened The Chickfit Studio after working as a group fitness director and personal trainer for about 25 years.
