"Like many women of my age, I started out with high-intensity aerobics and running on the treadmill when my kids were little," Meg tells Mamamia of her exercise habits.
"In 2007 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and my recovery involved a lot of gentle movement like yoga and Pilates. As I healed and got back to the gym, I fell in love with lifting weights and all the benefits that it brought to my life, especially as I got older."
