One of the greatest elements of my job is getting suggestions from women such as you about the work we do at GGS. I lately spoke at a giant convention in Chicago, and simply a few days later, this message popped up on our Facebook feed.
“… it forever changed my view on many things and also changed me as a trainer.”
“I came to the gym Monday a different trainer.”
This is why we do what we do at GGS — and this coach wasn’t the just one.
After my speak, I had the pleasure of talking with dozens of women and males who thanked me for altering their complete perspective on how to coach women.
During my presentation, I talked a lot about how women’s experiences of their lives and our bodies inform how they understand their interactions with their coaches and trainers.
How women work together with their coaches and trainers has a profound impression on how they really feel about themselves. A unfavorable expertise may cause women to really feel embarrassment or disgrace, discourage them from reaching their potential, and even lead them to give up understanding altogether!
In reality, once we polled the GGS group, of the women who reported having destructive experiences, 86 % of them felt as if they weren’t in a position to attain their potential.
This is just not OK.
Not solely is it not OK, it’s one in every of the major explanation why we began the Coaching & Training Women Academy, a web-based Academy that may supply a number of women-specific certifications for health and health professionals.
This business has been under-serving women for years, and I actually consider the Coaching & Training Women Academy is a essential first step towards a full overhaul.
Everywhere I’m going and each minute I spend in our GGS communities, I discover women identical to you and me who:
- Want to change women’s perceptions of their our bodies and what they’re able to.
- Are fed up with all the BS spewed by corporations wanting to revenue off of women’s insecurities.
- Have skilled our personal health and health transformation and really feel impressed to empower others.
- Want to be higher coaches and eventually give women the teaching and care they deserve.
When I take into consideration Girls Gone Strong and the way forward for our group, I couldn’t be extra excited that we’re elevating consciousness and providing assets for health and health professionals to assist them higher perceive, join with, and serve their feminine shoppers.
If you’re taking a good take a look at the instructional instruments and certifications out there for health and health professionals, you’ll discover that there’s little or no info obtainable on female-specific teaching. If we’re fortunate we’d get a paragraph or two about the menstrual cycle and the way it might have an effect on coaching. Of the out there info, a lot of it’s both not evidence-based or not complete. It may cowl solely prenatal info, or solely postnatal, or offers solely one skilled’s perspective from one particular space of experience, leaving out all of the different essential elements of teaching women — and it definitely doesn’t embrace details about the psychology of teaching women.
We have helped hundreds of women from round the world heal their relationship with themselves and their physique, and helped them attain their health and health objectives in a sustainable means. In the course of, we realized one thing:
