In  Australia we have access to some of the best women’s health training courses in the world.

To name just a few… So how do you choose? The answer is, don’t choose – do them all.

It’s worth doing ALL of them if you want to position yourself as a women’s training “expert” because they are all very different. Some are a conservative approach to post natal women, others are about female strength and performance, others are specific to a training modality such as Pilates, and others still dive deep in to the hormone changes of the menstrual cycle, or a woman’s life phases… No one course covers it all (yet).
In addition:

  • Each course has a different slant on what’s important, and a different way of achieving that objective. This means you’ll have multiple tools in your toolbox for different client’s needs.
  • Each client is different and you’ll need ALL the strategies if you want to train all kinds of women. The idea that a “one size fits all” is outdated – especially for women who’s hormone fluctuations are very unique to the individual, which has been the reason why they’ve been excluded from science… until the 90’s when it was legislated that women must be included anyway!
  • Because of the uniqueness of each of the providers themselves, you may appreciate and get more out of different delivery methods and personalities – online versus live versus live online! You may prefer to knock a whole course out in a day in person, or over a few weeks, or enjoy self-paced anonymity with an online course! You may prefer a kick ass, assertive presenter, or avoiding presentations all together! Each offering has it’s own delivery method and “personality” which will make your experience better or worse, and enhance what you’re learning or distract from it.
  • Because it would be silly to believe that one course covers everything you need to know. It’s not possible to know everything, so it’s always worth learning what each course has to offer. Between courses, there will be common threads, and doing them all will confirm these, but it will also open up your practice, knowledge, and experience to the differences.
  • Because you only take 7 things away from any course you do. It takes 10,000 hours of study or practice to become an expert, between your courses and clients, how many are you really up to??? If you’re doing 40hrs a week and only take 2 weeks off a year, it still takes FIVE YEARS to become an expert.

So, stop trying to decide which course is “best” – no one course is going to give you all you need. Start with the one that attracts you the most, and work your way through them all. When you’ve finished, you can likely write your own!
