Description

Sixty percent of clients who work with a personal trainer are women. Women typically hire a trainer because they want to lose weight, shape up and firm up without bulking up! An understanding of the biological differences between the genders and how that affects exercise programming, hormonal influences, and various stages of a woman’s life, including pregnancy, postpartum and menopause, will allow a trainer to effectively address a woman’s goals and provide life-changing results. This workshop is a must for ALL personal trainers who work with female clients.
