Who created the Women’s Coaching Specialist Certification?
Molly Galbraith, CSCS
GGS Woman-in-charge, creator of GGS Academy
"When I first started in the fitness industry 19 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 What was available was outdated, shaming, or steeped in diet culture.

Given 67–75% of all people who hire a coach or trainer are women—that’s not OK.

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 coach women in the 21st century."
Developed by 17 of the world'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 world most comprehensive, evidence-based, and interdisciplinary Women's Coaching Certification in the world.
Our curriculum was written, developed, and reviewed by Molly Galbraith, CSCS, and 16 other world-class women’s health experts spanning 12 fields of study. That includes some of the top names in the industry, including...
