ABOUT THE COURSE
Full course details: medfitclassroom.org/product/menopause-health-and-fitness-specialist/
The menopausal transition is a dynamic time in a woman’s life that deserves special consideration. One of the greatest challenges that the health and wellness provider faces is the wide range of fitness levels and health issues apparent in this group of women. Mid-life women can be sedentary with multiple co-morbidities or they can be elite triathletes. As a result, each client needs a tailored approach to their wellness care. Although there is great diversity within this group, there are many common threads to the path their physiology takes. What differs is the approach and the ultimate wellness prescription for each individual client.
The goal of this course is to help the learner understand the physical, emotional and psychosocial dynamics that mid-life women experience during this transition. With a solid foundation of an understanding of the mid-life experience, we can then build an understanding of the basic principles of the nutritional needs, physical training focus and mindset work that is beneficial for these women. We then discuss how to apply these basic principles to your individual clients – whether she is sedentary or whether she just won her first triathlon. Finally, we discuss how the wellness professional can build their business leveraging their distinction of expertise in caring for mid-life female clients.
