Welcome to Barefoot Helen, your one stop site for all things health and fitness after that magic age.

I don’t know about you but I despair when I read about how you have to take things ‘easier’ once you hit a certain milestone in your life. That you can no longer be as fit as you used to be. Add to that all the negative information out there about the menopause and the general view of getting older is that is sucks!

My aim is to change that. At 53 I am the healthiest, strongest, fittest and most confident in my body that I have ever been. Being 53 rocks and I want to share that with as many people as I can.

If you like the sound of that then stick around because I am determined to grow a tribe of ‘kick arse’ women that put pay to the notion that 50 is over the hill…..

In fact I’m starting a new quote – you heard it here first – ’50 is the new 20′

Let’s do this.
