Frequently Asked Questions
Final Note
Women make up 67–75% of all people who hire a coach, trainer, or nutrition professional. What’s more, 85% of women will have a baby at some point in their life.

More women than ever want to eat and exercise in a way that keeps them safe, healthy, and strong during pregnancy and postpartum. 

And because it’s so hard to find up-to-date, evidence-based information they’re looking for a coach who can properly answer their questions and help them reach their goals.

When you become a Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach you’ll get everything you need to safely and effectively coach and train women during the entire pregnancy and postpartum experience (within your scope of practice).

By the time you graduate, you’ll feel qualified to write expert training programs customized for each trimester and every stage of postpartum recovery.

You’ll also know how to coach pre- and postnatal-specific nutrition, and use women-specific behavior change psychology to empower pregnant and postpartum women to have healthier, stronger, more confident pregnancies and postpartum experiences.

Girls Gone Strong is the world leader in evidence-based, interdisciplinary, body-positive women’s coaching & training education, and we invite you to join us in our mission of raising the standard of coaching care for pre- & postnatal women in the health & fitness industry.
