On Wednesday, 9th August, in honour of National Women’s Day, CrossFit Cyprium is hosting an event to celebrate and acknowledge the strength and uniqueness of being a woman with their Women’s Wellness Day. This event is designed to shed light on female physiology and health, filling the knowledge gap that often arises due to the predominantly male-centric research in health, nutrition, and exercise. They aim to empower women with the knowledge they need to optimise their bodies and lead healthier lives.
The lineup of speakers includes Strength & Conditioning Coach Katy Gunter, Biokineticist Caryn Smith, and Dietitian Azi Booi. These experts boast a wealth of knowledge in female physiology and health, ensuring that the information shared is tailored to the needs of women. One of the key aspects they will be addressing is whether women should be eating the same way as their male counterparts. The answer is no! Female bodies have distinct nutritional requirements, and understanding these differences can lead to improved overall health and well-being. You can also explore the idea of eating differently at different times of the month. Women’s hormonal fluctuations impact their nutritional needs, and learning how to adapt eating habits accordingly can contribute to better energy levels and overall performance.
For many women, feeling run down at certain times of the month is a common concern. CrossFit Cyprium’s experts will offer insights and strategies to combat this issue and embrace each phase of the menstrual cycle with vitality. The importance of exercise for women will also be highlighted during the event. Exercise not only enhances physical health but also plays a crucial role in mental well-being. Understanding how to work with female physiology to optimise training results will be a central focus at the Women’s Wellness Day event.
A common question that arises, especially for expecting mothers, is whether exercise is safe during pregnancy. CrossFit Cyprium’s experts will shed light on this topic, emphasising the benefits of staying active during pregnancy while providing guidelines for safe and effective workouts. The day promises to be interactive and engaging, so we encourage attendees to bring their water bottles and gym kits. Participants will have the opportunity to participate in a beginner pilates and strength session, designed to target typical weaknesses within the female body. In addition to valuable insights and practical sessions, attendees will also walk away with a goodie bag filled with gifts from CrossFit Cyprium’s partners: Decathlon ZA and FutureLife. This thoughtful gesture aims to further support women in their journey towards better health and well-being.
Ultimately, Women’s Wellness Day is a celebration of female physiology and health, a day where we come together to uplift, educate, and empower women to take charge of their bodies and lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. Let’s celebrate womanhood together!
