Meet the hosts
Meet Trudi, the founder of Vitality40plus and affectionately known as "Mrs Menopause."
After an exciting career spanning the corporate sector, in 2008, Trudi decided to switch things up and retrain as an L3 trainer specializing in women's and children's fitness and obesity. She also managed a gym in Jersey before heading to Spain in 2019.
During her time in Spain, Trudi was "diagnosed" with menopause. She started studying weight loss and the menopause body during lockdown, and when she returned to Jersey in 2021, she teamed up with a local menopause specialist GP to form the Menopause Forum. Together, they provide lifestyle and medical advice to women.
From there, Trudi has been on a mission, travelling to other Channel Islands, Gibraltar, and the Isle of Man to talk about the "M" word. She's appeared on TV, radio, in media interviews, and even hosted conferences. Trudi also writes for Menopause Matters, the leading menopause magazine in the UK.
Besides being an expert in all things menopause, Trudi is also passionate about Pilates. During our retreat, she'll teach us some moves that will make our bodies and minds great! So get ready to learn from Trudi and feel amazing.
Dr Juan Melendez
Meet Juan, a physician who specializes in cognitive disorders. Although he's now based in Jersey, he originally hails from Cordoba, Spain, and still considers it his home.
Currently, Juan is the clinical lead of the Memory Service in Jersey, and his extensive studies and work have led him to collaborate with some of the leading experts in his field. For example, he's worked with the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic in New York under the leadership of Dr Isaacson and Dr Lisa Mosconi, who recently appeared on Davina McCall's "Sex, Myths and the Menopause" program. Juan has also collaborated with the Women's Alzheimer's Movement led by Maria Shriver in LA.
Juan's passion for cognitive health has even taken him to Ecuador, where he led a research project on brain health in women in rural and poor communities.
Now, Juan is excited to share his evidence-based recommendations with you so that you can take better care of your mental health and well-being.
