We believe coaches and communities are the conductors of change for women, families and future generations. Through knowledge of movement interfused with natural life cycles, together we ignite courage in a woman’s innate abilities, strength, and wisdom to be the most fierce version of her true self.

 

 

 

 

 

We offer two options for our in depth practical, lecture, and Q&A course: 6-hour 1 day course or 10-hour 2 day course. We teach where requested by coaches, gym owners, franchise owners, or corporate programs!

Multiple locations? Please contact us to learn how we can educate and empower your teams of coaches.

"I registered for this seminar to gain confidence in coaching and training pregnant women. I feel a lot more confident in my coaching abilities and my understanding of the changes the woman's body goes through during the course of her pregnancy and how to properly scale/modify workouts to her needs throughout."

“The comprehensive nature of the course was extremely useful. I feel comfortable talking to clients and other healthcare professionals due to the extensive physiological and research based information provided.”

– Carolynn, CPT, Rochester

“The course was a lot of fun. As a male, it certainly broadens my understanding of a topic I’m not entirely familiar with. As a trainer, it makes me more aware of the natural processes of the female body in the scope of physical fitness.”

– Orrie, Owner Flatbush CrossFit

How are baby-bearing women dominating the gym scene?

Millennial women, ages 18-34, dominate fitness class attendance. They also train with personal trainers and weights more than Gen-X and baby-boomers.
  

18-34 year olds are asking for more social exercise, authentic experiences, calm atmospheres, & opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals.

Females dominate fitness classes 5:1 over males. Owners increase participation by offering programs relevant to millennial females & by increasing the quality of coaching.

Convenient location is the #1 reason for gym attendance followed by good vibes. If you don’t know how to create a safe atmosphere for women, you’re missing a huge % of clients.

This course is done in both a hands-on and presentation-style format. Come dressed to move and sit in comfortable clothing. Please bring food/snacks, water, whatever you need!
