in Female Fitness Programming

Did you know if you study the regular Cert III & IV in Fitness, you’re not actually qualified to train pregnant and post-natal women from the second trimester all the way through until the initial few months after birth (even longer under certain circumstances)?!

Imagine you’ve studied and worked hard to become an amazing trainer… you’ve just started coaching and got yourself a few regular clients… then another few months pass and you’ve now got a couple more clients. For the first time, you start feeling comfortable and confident in yourself and your business, and next minute, three of your best clients mention they’re pregnant and going into their second trimester… and since you’re not pre & post-natal qualified, you legally have to stop training them.

Welcome to the change that women need worldwide when it comes to health and fitness. We are here to unite science and practice by empowering women with education around our menstrual cycle, hormones, pregnancy, pelvic floor, menopause, thyroid, ADHD, blood work, body image and so much more!

Historically, women have been underrepresented in medical, fitness and exercise studies. With a recent shift towards including women and specifically analysing the unique needs of females – there is still a 10-year gap between new research and implementation, that’s a huge gap in knowledge and health outcomes.

  • 8/10 women have felt their doctors dismissed their symptoms
  • 1/10 women suffer from a chronic disease
  • It takes 3-5 years to get a PCOS diagnosis and 8-10 for endometriosis
  • Women are 10x more likely to suffer from hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s than men
  • Understanding the link between our menstrual cycle, gut health and mental health is significantly underrated.
  • The current direction of health research that seeks to better understand the complex interplay between hormonal health, gut microbiome, and mental well-being
  • Females have unique needs in sports and training that traditional systems ignore
  • Pregnancy, birth, post-partum and child health have all been found to benefit significantly from exercise, however there are vital things women need to know to do it safely.

Women deserve better. Join us in uniting science and practice, empower yourself and your clients and join a growing movement changing the face of female health forever.

Our flagship course, Masters Certificate in Female Fitness Programming (Master Female Trainer) is obtainable to any and all females (and males) looking to further their skills and knowledge in exercise considerations around our unique bodies and the stages we face.

There are five units that require completion and assessment to receive the Masters Certificate in Female Fitness Programming.

The investment is AU$500 per unit or AU$1,900 for all five units (Payment plans available in 46 countries)

*If you enrol in our Cert III & IV in Fitness, this Certificate is included
