Combe Grove, England

Metabolism tends to slow down during menopause, causing some women to gain around 1.5 pounds, on average, through their 50s.7 While weight gain isn’t uncommon during the menopausal transition, it's also not inevitable if you pay careful attention to diet and exercise.

Combe Grove's Metabolic Health Menopause Retreat in England aims to provide you with helpful tools to better understand and rebalance your changing body.8 The six-night experience, located at a manor house estate, features information sessions from healthcare providers, in addition to specialized movement classes, and full use of its fitness facilities.
