You Don’t Have To Be Young To Build Muscle

“Infact it’s ESSENTIAL,” says Anna Jenkins, Coach and Founder of We Are Fit Attitude (WAFA). “At 45-plus your body NEEDS strength work to maintain muscle mass and stay strong, especially from peri-menopause and beyond.”

At WAFA, we’re more than just a fitness programme; we’re a community of strong, confident women redefining perceptions of ageing. Our mission is to integrate strength work into women’s lives, proving that age is just a number, not a barrier.

We’re thrilled to share that WAFA has been featured in a double-page spread in The Guardian, both in print and online! It’s an honour to have our voice heard in the fitness and media world, celebrating women in mid-life and beyond and challenging misconceptions of us at this time in life. At WAFA, we are not defined by our body shape or age but by our incredible strength in life achievements, both mentally and physically.

Dive into our story as featured in The Guardian to hear from our eldest member, 77-year-old Linda, along with insights from other members and Anna. Discover how we’re breaking fitness taboos and proving that you don’t have to be young to build muscle. and join us in celebrating strength at every age.

Here’s to redefining ageing and empowering women everywhere!
