Who Created the Women’s Coaching Specialist Certification?
Molly Galbraith, CSCS
Woman-in-charge, Girls Gone Strong
"When I first started in the fitness industry 18 years ago, I was often the only woman in the weight room. All my teachers and mentors were men, and there was almost zero women-specific coaching and training education available. What was available was outdated, shaming, or steeped in diet culture.

Women deserve better.

So GGS pulled together 17 trailblazing women from 12 fields of study to create this industry-changing Certification that teaches health, fitness, and nutrition professionals (like you) how to actually coach women in the 21st century."
Developed by 17 of the industry’s most trusted women’s health, fitness, and nutrition experts
Using the latest research and our experts’ combined 400+ years of practical and clinical experience, we created the most comprehensive, evidence-based, and interdisciplinary Women’s Coaching Certification in the world.
Our curriculum was written, developed, and reviewed by Molly Galbraith, CSCS, & 16 other world-class women’s health experts spanning 12 fields of study. That includes some of the top names in the industry, including...
Precision Nutrition* Curriculum Developers:
Dr. Krista Scott-Dixon, PhD, Dr. Helen Kollias, PhD, and Cam DePutter
As well as industry trailblazers:
Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB-GYN, Dr. Meryl Alappattu, PhD, DPT, Marika Hart, PT, and Ingrid Marcum, former National Olympic Weightlifting Champion.

We brought together experts from the U.S., Canada, UK, Mexico, and Australia to make this the most comprehensive, globally-relevant Certification in the world.
*Our collaboration with members of Precision Nutrition's curriculum development team has made the Women’s Coaching Specialist Certification the perfect complement to Precision Nutrition Certifications.

HEAD OF CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT AT PRECISION NUTRITION
“As a developer of this Certification, I’m excited to be part of helping health and fitness professionals bring women’s coaching into the 21st century with this truly timely, progressive, and empowering approach.

The majority of people who hire a coach, trainer, or nutrition professional are women. Yet to date, few coaching organizations have truly met women’s diverse needs — until now.”
Dr. Jessica Shepherd, OB-GYN
Baylor University Medical CENTER
"We created this Certification to help any professional — of any discipline — who works with women.

Even if you've been working with women for years, you're going to walk away with a ton of new, important knowledge and skills."
Only for women? Think again.
