How Does Working Out Affect Your Period?

, How Does Working Out Affect Your Period?

You may be tempted to lie on the couch with a hot water bottle and slab of chocolate while on your period, but exercising with your personal trainer will actually help alleviate your symptoms. 

Your period is a complex time, hormonally speaking. Progesterone and estrogen are at their lowest during the entire length of the period phase of the menstrual cycle, which can make you feel less energetic. 

But, skipping on your workouts with your personal trainer won’t actually save energy. Use this week to try some new workouts with your certified fitness coach. Here are three benefits of exercising during your period.

  • Decreased PMS symptoms 
  • Elevated mood from a surge of endorphins 
  • Decreased painful periods (dysmenorrhea) 


Ask your expert mobile personal trainer to do some low-volume strength training, yoga, or pilates. Slow down on the intensity of your workouts, especially if you’re feeling very fatigued. Take extra time to recover, and drink plenty of fluids.
