Transgender or Non-binary Fitness Clients

Back to all Courses

Gender is moving from the rigid definitive of male or female to a continuum.

Changes to our traditional view of gender can be confronting and difficult to understand. Trying to correctly navigate the “new” terminology around LTGBQI persons leave many in fear of “getting it wrong.”

This course will include a list of acronyms, terms and how to correctly use pronouns so that people other than heterosexual, gender normed, may also feel equally included.

Also included are exercise considerations for those who are in transition and a list of where both you and your clients can go for further help and support.

This is a non-creditable micro-credential which is awarded a digital badge and Certificate of Completion which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio.

We’re all getting older! Omg my ‘elite octogenarian’ client has so much to tell and her transformation from starting training to completion is so rewarding from her feeling better to the joy of sharing her life and learns – I don’t know who gets more out of it!
