3rd Age Woman GLOBAL ON-LINE Certification – Peri to Post Menopause Wellness Coaching

Are you working with the mid-life, Peri to Post Menopause woman?  Do you have questions about how to effectively serve women during this life phase?  Do you need to upskill your education to truly understand the mechanisms of Perimenopause, Menopause and Post Menopause?

Myself, and my esteemed Women's Wellness colleagues, Jessica Drummond and Michelle Lyons are all so pleased to present this ON-LINE - GLOBALLY ACCESSIBLE certification truly dedicated to the Peri to Post Menopause  - '3rd Age' Woman!

Many of us are familiar with the concepts and challenges related to the Menopause, but what’s happening during the Peri-menopause?  In short, this life phase for most women starts around aged 35 – 40 and starts by most women noticing that ‘things are changing’ in our bodies  and their moods and probably also noticing that current strategies for diet, exercise and lifestyle don’t seem to work anymore and indeed are starting to have a negative effect.

As fitness/wellness professionals (many of us also entering our own 3rd Age), where’s the thought-space for providing wellness information for these women who’s needs are changing and for whom we need a whole new kit-bag of skills to successfully work with?

Where’s the 'thought & action space' for these female clients who want and need something different than the offerings of the mainstream gym and fitness facilities?

Where is the dedicated offering  for and conversation regarding these clients’ REAL NEEDS and the changes that  they are experiencing?

Thankfully, I’ve had the good fortune to collaborate with some of the best minds in field of Women’s Wellness, Jessica Drummond and Michelle Lyons and am delighted to tutor alongside them to present this brand new Advanced Certificate in Female 3rd Age Programming for Fitness & Wellness Professionals seeking to create empathetic and effective programming for the mid-life woman.  This certificate is accessible on-line and therefore globally.

Over 14 Modules of this course (all accessible immediately),  we’ll cover all the key gritty topics, go deep with the science stuff, make complexed information easy to digest for both you and your clients and most of all, we’ll give you the skills to walk away from this certification and create an offering for your own Peri to Post Menopause clients that will EMPOWER THEIR BEST YEARS YET!
