Hello fellow woman 45+! Are you ready to take action to have more energy, strength and ease in your body, but you’re worried, like I was, that it will be uncomfortable and no fun at all? Oh, you have come to the right place, and I have good news! 

I was super-excited to discover on my own health journey that so much of what I thought of as “aging” was not inevitable, and I could actually turn it around and even improve it! And even though not everything became perfect (of course), I was amazed to find new habits that brought MORE fun, flavor and satisfaction to my life, not less.   

I became a health coach, blogger and activity leader (with many free offerings) to share this inspiring news with the world and to help other women discover their own positive spiral of great-feeling change. If you find my message exciting too, please explore this site and join my twice-monthly “Jetpack” email list. Ready to connect? Let’s talk about your unique journey on Zoom, with absolutely no pressure or obligation. I’m so glad you’re here and look forward to meeting you!

About Patricia Linderman

I was a chubby kid who loved reading and animals, but I didn’t love being picked last for teams during recess and gym class. As an adult I sat at the computer a lot, working as an editor, translator and writer as well as an adult education teacher, mom and volunteer. Even though I’d studied biology, I just wasn’t thinking about the importance of enjoyable physical movement and didn’t question the processed-food environment around us. By age 50 I was in the obesity range and was shocked by how hard it was to get up off the floor. I thought maybe I could get a little healthier, so I started going to group fitness classes (beginning with Aqua Zumba) and eating mainly real foods from nature. I was astonished to find myself on a year-long journey that completely turned my health and my body around. Read more about it here

I was so excited that I became a health coach, personal trainer and Functional Aging Specialist so I can help other women experience the same kind of joyful, inspiring change that I have. Along the way, I developed my own unique approach to holistic health coaching, and I’ve helped hundreds of clients and participants reach their own unique goals since 2017. I help women all over the world discover physical movement that works for their bodies and they truly enjoy; healthy, sustainable eating plans full of flavor and satisfaction; more restful sleep; stress management tools that really work; more fun,  joy and connection in their lives; and an age-positive, self-compassionate mindset.  If that sounds good to you, please join my twice-monthly email list here! 

What I offer

Personalized Health Coaching

Your journey is unique, because your body, needs, preferences and lifestyle are like nobody else’s. With an affordable weekly coaching package, we’ll identify your sustainable well-being goals and the next steps that will have you feeling better (not stressed or hungry!) week after week. I work with women (and a few men!) all over the world via Zoom as well as in person.

Transforming our bodies, with love 

“Weight loss” is a key reason that people come to me. But our society has this so messed up! ? Our culture practically forces us to eat unhealthfully and then shames us for it. ? My approach starts with fiercely loving and defending ourselves and our bodies (it’s ok if that’s hard at first!) and finding kind, sustainable ways to reduce some unhealthful body fat while building the muscle that will keep us strong, active and confident (and less achy!) through the years. 

Creative Exercise and Laughter Yoga

Moving our bodies can and should be fun and feel great! I lead a free outdoor workout all year, teach Creative Balance classes and pelvic floor training sessions, and design customized workout plans for clients. I’m also a Laughter Yoga leader because intentional group laughter can improve our mood, breathing, brain health, sense of connection and much more. 

Pfilates Pelvic Floor Training

Most women over 45 suffer from pelvic issues such as leaks, urgency or prolapse. But because of shame, silence and neglect, ? we haven’t learned that these can usually be significantly improved with simple self-care practices. In workshops, classes and affordable private sessions, I teach simple daily Pilates-inspired practices that can protect and enhance your quality of life. ?? 

The Fierce after 45 Blog

New Clients

Talking one-on-one is a great way to see if we’re a good fit, and I’d love to meet you on Zoom! ? It’s a real coaching session, not a sales call, with no pressure and no obligation. We’ll sketch out your wellness goals (dream big!), and choose your three most impactful next steps. Then you can pursue an affordable coaching program with me, or just run with the plan on your own. You’re welcome!
