About Us

Nicky and Jo founded Invigor in 2020 during the global Coronovirus pandemic.

They both experienced the impact of their changing bodies.

For Jo it was heart palpitations, brain fog and aching joints.

For Nicky it was weight gain, anxiety and night sweats.

They are qualified fitness instructors and 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.

Nicky Watt

Over the last 20 years I have made it my mission to help women get and keep fit.

I’m a qualified personal trainer, Kettlercise, Boxercise and BootCamp Instructor.

In the 90s, it was all about step, grapevines, huge classes and choreographed moves.

Later, after having children, it was all about restoring core strength and strength training new Mums for their busy lives.

Now, well now, I am many years older! My 1:1 clients and I are all experiencing the symptoms of perimenopause. So, it's time to change focus again.

My belief that women needed to lift weights was backed up by sooooo much science, especially during the menopause journey, it just couldn’t be ignored. Completing the 3rd Age Menopause certification was the start of this next part of the journey.

So today I am passionate about supporting women to maintain strength for everyday life – for the rest of their life!

Jo Little

I'm passionate about supporting women in their midlife to find their mojo, get fit, healthy and happy again.

I'm a fully qualified Personal Trainer, Purestretch and Kettlercise Instructor and Nutrition and Weight Management Coach.

In 2019 I completed the Burrell Education 3rd Age Woman Certification programme.

I love the outdoors, running, cycling, hiking, zip lining… you name it, I will try it! 

I have not always been like this. I know from experience how hard it can be to overcome the very real physical and psychological challenges that so many of us face in order to lead a healthy life.

Whether you feel guilty about wanting some ‘me time’ outside of the family, you’re suffering from a lack of confidence in your ability, or a general fear that it is simply too late to change your lifestyle, I want to help you.
