If you work in health and fitness, I highly recommend learning from my friends at Girls Gone Strong. Their Coaching & Training Women Academy is second to none and is an absolute must for any coach or trainer who works with women. But this isn't just a professional recommendation; it's personal too. As a father to two daughters and two sons, I want them all growing up in a world that's been influenced by the inclusive, body-positive teachings of GGS.

If you train women or ever plan to, I recommend you learn from them. Oh, and Molly thinks that she cuts avocados better than me. She doesn't. We just tell her that she does so that she makes guacamole. Don't tell her though. This ruse has been going on for years.

Let's Talk Business
Effective women-specific coaching — exactly what's missing in your business.
Women make up more than 66% of all health and fitness clients, and they are significantly more likely to prioritize and invest in their health than men.

Preliminary research at GGS shows that 97% of women who fire their coach or trainer don’t actually share the truth about why they’re leaving. Maybe you’ve heard something like this before:

“I just can’t afford it anymore”
“I don’t have the time”
“My kids are out of school”
“Work is getting too busy”


According to our research, only 3.5% of women are telling their coach, trainer, or gym managers the truth about why they’re canceling their service.

Why are your clients really leaving?

Once you complete the GGS-1 Certification you’ll have a deeper understand of the physiological and psychological aspects of working with women, allowing you to make an even bigger impact on your clients’ lives.

This means your clients will get better results, they'll stay with you longer, you’ll become the go-to professional in your area, and you’ll be doing rewarding work that helps women.

Investing in your coaching craft is the single smartest thing you can do to jumpstart or grow a business that lasts.

Don't fall for some hot new social media hack or lead generation strategy. Spend your time learning the skills to be a world-class coach.  

With women making up more than 66% of all health and fitness coaching clients, your next big opportunity is to serve women better. And we’ll teach you exactly how to do that!
Impact women’s lives with Girls Gone Strong.
Twice a year, we work with a select group of women, coaching and training them using our unique, women-specific, person-focused coaching system. This allows us to continually test and refine our coaching and training methods.

We’ve positively impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of women by helping them achieve their goals and feel more comfortable and at-home in their bodies, and we're confident that after learning from us, you'll be able to do the same. And, we'll be here to support you every step of the way. 

But don't take our word for it. Hear it straight from our clients.
Everything about participating in the GGS coaching program was amazing. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I love what GGS is doing with the psychology of women’s health. Girls Gone Strong is the most comprehensive women’s health organization I’ve ever encountered, and I am so thankful that I was able to participate in the coaching program. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, I feel like you have coached me to be my best self.
- TIFFANY S.
Before GGS coaching, I felt alone and betrayed by my own body. I was exhausted, emotionally crushed, and I felt embarrassed about my body. But the care, the support, and the friendship that was offered through the GGS coaching program changed that. I don’t think I would have been able to heal without your program. My pain wasn’t just superficial. Thank you for your warmth, honesty, and kindness, and for being so real.
- JULIE B.
The GGS coaching program has helped me see my world differently. The coaching aspects of the program have helped me fall in love with my body, and have highlighted what my body is capable of instead of the number on the scale. Screw the scale, it lies. I’m not weighing myself anymore, I’ll take my strength over the number any day.

Learn how to help women get results while healing their relationship with food and their body.
Learning how to coach and train women without GGS is going to be really tough.

There's very limited women-specific coaching information available, and the information that does exist often falls short in one or more of the following areas: it's focused solely on anatomical differences, it fails to address women-specific psychology, or it's not evidence-based or body-positive.

Further — how do you know where to start?

What information is most critical to learn?

How do you determine what information to prioritize without feeling overwhelmed by information overload?

Even if you're an ambitious self-starter, you're going to wade through a lot of low-quality information and waste a lot of time trying to do it yourself. 

Learning from world-class experts in a simple, easy-to-understand, self-paced format that fits your life and schedule is crucial for your success. 

For most people, going back to school isn't a good option, either. 

Getting a degree is expensive and takes a very long time. And often, at the end of that road, your head my be filled with science and book knowledge, but you know very little about the practical side of coaching. Further, you haven't been taught the psychology of coaching women. For example, understanding how to help women who are struggling with body image is crucial to being an effective coach. 

And learning from the internet can be kinda scary.

It's very difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction on the internet, and it's nearly impossible to know who to trust. 

Plus — who wants to wade through hundreds of blog posts, articles, and research studies trying to find the truth?

There are two major problems facing most health professionals today:
  • How to use both the science and psychology of coaching women to get the best possible results for their clients...
  • How to get the education they need — on their terms and within their schedule — without having to go back to school...
...except for our Girls Gone Strong Level 1 Certification.
After just over 2 months I’ve finished! I am so proud, and I honestly feel I got more out of this certification than I did when studying for my master's in exercise science! Thank you GGS! ❤️❤️❤️

On average, women are much more likely than men to seek out health and fitness information and coaching. Yet to date, few coaching organizations have created systematic plans that truly meet women’s diverse needs and reflect their varied experiences across their lifespan — until now. As a curriculum contributor, I’m excited to be part of bringing women’s coaching into the 21st century and reflecting a truly timely, progressive, and empowering approach to coaching female clients in the GGS-1 Coaching Certification.

I read a ton of books and consumes a wide variety of information, and I’m always impressed by education that’s transformative. The way Girls Gone Strong takes critical and often complex topics and presents them in a way that’s highly actionable is remarkable. Their Certification gives you the tools and skills you need to actually go out and be an effective coach for women. If you coach women, I highly recommend you invest in their Certification.
Mark Fisher
Co-Owner of Mark Fisher Fitness
I've been following Girls Gone Strong for years now, and have pointed dozens (if not hundreds) of people in their direction.

I'm constantly impressed by everything they put out, and by their commitment to following the scientific evidence over industry orthodoxy.  If you coach women, you owe it to yourself and your clients to learn from Girls Gone Strong.
Greg Nuckols, CSCS
Stronger by Science
As a pelvic health physiotherapist, and expert in women’s nutrition, pain neuroscience, clinical pilates, and yoga therapy, I’m incredibly passionate about helping health and fitness professionals take a whole-person approach to coaching women, and I’m thrilled I had the chance to do that by contributing to this GGS-1 Coaching Certification.

Coaching women well requires not just an understanding of our anatomy and physiology, biomechanics, and hormones, but also a deep understanding of women-specific psychology. You get all that and more when you take the GGS-1 Coaching Certification, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Heba Shaheed, Pelvic Health Physiotherapist
Founder, The Pelvic Expert
As a doctor who understands the importance of good nutrition, exercise, and long-term behavior change, I love Girls Gone Strong’s approach to coaching women.

Many health professionals underestimate the power of understanding psychology when it comes to helping clients and patients get results, and I think it’s the missing piece in many health professionals’ toolboxes. The GGS-1 Coaching Certification will teach you all of that and much more. I highly recommend it.
Dr. Spencer Nadolsky
Board-Certified Family and Obesity Physician
In a world the encourages women to be small and quiet, the work that Girls Gone Strong is doing is so important.

Their one-of-a-kind certification is educating an entire generation of health and fitness professionals to help women be strong, healthy, confident, and bold while helping them reach their goals. Women are demanding more from their coaches than ever before, and GGS-1 helps coaches deliver.
Steph Gaudreau
USAW-L1 Strength Coach
Founder of Harder to Kill Radio
I've been a fan of Molly, all the other top-rate coaches involved, and the entire "vibe" of Girls Gone Strong since its inception. I love what they stand for, what they encourage, and how they go out of their way to make the fitness industry (and, in many ways, the world) a better place.

I know first-hand the amount of work, detail, and passion the GGS crew put into this certification. I've seen Molly scrap entire CHAPTERS of a book because it didn't meet their standards. The amount of integrity that takes is off-the-charts impressive.

Girls Gone Strong, to me, are the shit.
Tony Gentilcore
Owner of CORE
Co-Founder of Cressey Sports Performance
As a mom of three, nutrition coach, trainer, and doula I have years of experience coaching and supporting women. This certification shines a light on topics that have been in the dark for so long so you have a deeper understanding of how to coach your women clients.

With this certification, you get community, information, skills, practice, case studies . . . you get everything you need to become a trailblazer in the health and fitness industry.

So coaches — this is your chance. Are you going to become a GGS-1 Certified Coach? Or are you going to be left behind?
Carolina Belmares
Owner of Sweatglow Fitness
As a strength coach with an expertise in performance and injury prevention, I truly believe the future of fitness will blend the worlds of strength and conditioning with physical therapy more seamlessly. And that’s exactly what I appreciate most about the Girls Gone Strong information and coaching methods.

Having six qualified strength and conditioning coaches and three physical therapists work together to create the exercise curriculum for this certification shows what a truly interdisciplinary approach to fitness should look like. If you coach women or want to, I highly recommend you learn from Girls Gone Strong.

To expand on what's written above, if you decided to go back to school for an exercise science degree or to become a health professional, you'd likely spend anywhere from $5,000 - $12,000 USD per semester. If you did a four-year degree, with eight semesters, you'd be looking at spending upward of $40,000 - $100,000 USD. 

Even worse — many university classes are missing the most important thing: real-world coaching opportunities. And most professors haven't had much (if any) real-world coaching experience. That's why many students struggle after they finish their degree. 

It's also why, in the Girls Gone Strong Level 1 Certification, we'll share our proven coaching system that's guaranteed to get results for anyone who wants your help. We also give our students direct, unlimited access to our world-class GGS coaching experts. We're are here for you!
