About Us

Both qualified fitness instructors, Nicky and Jo are not the type to sit on their laurels during a global pandemic.

United by their passion for helping women in their 40s and 50s to thrive in midlife, they created Invigor Life.

They want to re-educate and support women to grow in confidence and not just survive during what has traditionally been a challenging and sometimes dark period in their lives.
