I've just completed Training Menopausal a Peri-menopausal Women. I loved Michelle Wrights presenting and am going to seek out more of her courses now. Highly recommend! I didn't know much about peri-menopause and menopause before but feel so much more confident taking on this stage now. I run bootcamp style classes for pre and post natal women so wanted to upskill on our next stage of life, but also open my market up to some older women. I've been asked a lot in the past if I'd put on a class for older women, even though all of my current classes are so adaptable for any age/stage. I realised that people need to see themselves in a group to feel more like we are "their people". I now feel like I have the knowledge to put a dedicated class on the timetable and I'm excited to broaden my skills and fine tune this new class.All reactions:33

Hi I’m a newbie in the fitness industry and super excited at the convenience and content of the online education - I love how phone friendly it is - anytime anyplace convenienceI just completed Training Menopausal and Peri-menopausal women .. which honestly I found a bit triggering as I am one and didn’t regret doing this course. I loved the use of the comedienne as one resource to breakdown barriers and education re pelvic floor issues in men and women. Encouraging re all age fitness with some useful targeted insights to this group.

Thank you to Fitness Education online for offering great courses. I have just completed the Mishfit Pregnant & Post Natal Training. I have been in the industry for 14 years and predominantly train women. I found this course to have great content which was easy to understand. Having video content as well as written content was great. Anybody training women will benefit from doing this courses, regardless the client being pregnant through to ladies going through menopause and dealing with pelvic floor issues or simply getting clients to better understand their core muscles.

I honestly can't rate this organisation and their educational resources high enough. I was looking for a course to do to be able to train Pre and Post Natal Women, and ever since doing my first course with FEO, they are the one organisation I continued to return to for my professional development! They continue to update their courses, including their video content of each and the visual demonstrations and other methods of teaching cater to all styles of learning. I always finish a course with many drills and ideas to implement into my individual and group based sessions. The biggest takeaway I get from every equipment based course, is ways to work in the different planes and target both the anterior and posterior chains. Highly recommend to both group instructors and personal trainers looking to add variety to their sessions! Thank-you to the whole team at FEO!

I’ve just completed Mishfit: pregnancy & postnatal training for Personal Trainers level 1 & 2 through Fitness Education Online. I gained so much knowledge through these courses which will help with my female clients. I recommend this course to all personal trainers that have female clients. I also just completed the bootcamp games mini course which had some great ideas for making bootcamp sessions fun and full of laughter. Can’t wait to try some of these games with my clients I look forward to doing more courses through Fitness Education Online, what a great supportive team!

I’ve been a Personal Trainer for 4 years. I just finished the periodisation of periods course with Mish Fit. I’ve learned so much information from this course, which is already helping my existing clients. I can’t wait to see where this new information takes myself and my team. So grateful for the opportunity to do a course like this!

I recently finished two courses and I have started my third on the subject of women’s health training and specifically pelvic floor, understanding the menstrual cycle as it relates to training and pre and postnatal. And I have to say I have loved the content. I have gained so much already, absolutely sponging up the knowledge. Love it. And it hasn’t just helped with the content provided, but also given me the connections for further study by providing links to the top providers in the field and that has been incredibly helpful. Can’t recommend enough. It has truly opened my eyes to where we are failing women and how we can be the change to fix it. Thanks so much fitness Ed!

Happy to have completed pregnant & post-natal for Fitness Professionals. I liked the structure of the course and how the presenter made it easy to learn. Being in the industry for over 3 years & a bit confused why we were not taught about what is taught in this course in our Fitness certificates studies. Better late than never for me at least
