Menopause CPD for Exercise Professionals & Health Coaches




women in perimenopause react differently to exercise.. Menopause CPD for Fitpros by Niamh Daly

The body’s reactions to exercise and diet change in perimenopause

Are you an experienced Exercise Professional or Health Coach who has clients in midlife?

Do you want to learn about what’s happening in menopause so that you can best provide reassurance and support to those clients?

You and I know there’s a lack of certified peri/menopause education, further training or online training for women in fitness/coaching worlds. It certainly wasn’t part of your first qualification: most entry-level and CPD programs are targeted towards younger women and men.

Yet you may be hearing a lot from your clients about how perimenopause is affecting them.

You may notice changes in them, as early as their late-30s. Changes in mood, energy, stamina, injury and recovery rate, weight etc. and that they/you are not getting the same results from your recommendations. I know you want to be able to have answers for them.

“I really enjoyed this course. The content is interesting, thorough, and backed up by many research links. Niamh logically delivers the course, and I highly recommend [it]” Kelly Ozoux Fitness, Pilates Teacher

Because of a huge surge of exposure in the media about menopause, there are more and more menopause CPDs springing up. So it’s hard know where to start looking for reliable information that’s not just taking advantage of this sudden zeitgeist.

I know what you’re feeling! Almost a decade ago, I had the same concerns that I wasn’t supporting my clients in a way that was backed up by current knowledge. I wanted to combine my years of experience teaching women with the science of how women’s health changes in midlife. I studied for 1000s of hours to understand the huge changes and symptoms of menopause and how they affect women’s ability and reaction to exercise, diet and more.

Niamh is a highly experienced menopause educator

linkNow I bring you all that learning, condensed into just 9 hours. This concise, research-based, comprehensive online training is relevant to your work.

Rest assured that I have been doing this since 2015, way before it became the fashionable topic it is today! I’ve been teaching since 2004, specializing in menopause for almost a decade and developed one of the first Yoga for Menopause teacher training certifications available. With my qualifications as a Pilates Instructor and as a Nutrition Coach, my CPD for Exercise Professionals and Health Coaches was a natural next step. My hundreds of graduates come from all over the world.

 “You bring a wealth of knowledge to the subject in a gentle, humorous and inclusive tone. I would highly recommend the course to other…professionals.” Hayley Bailey, Personal Trainer

    Hi Niamh,
    will this workshop overlap in content coverage with that of the 40h MYTT in Feb-Mar2023?
    Please advise.


    1. Niamh Daly

      Hi Jen. Yes, the biochemistry part is of course the same, though because of time constraints, the YTT goes more in-depth. There are inevitable other small overlaps. But The YTT is very much more detailed, and obviously Yoga-specific. This short CPD is very specific to people who don’t have the kinds of skills Yoga teachers have, but who may be meeting women more in terms of fitness and/or nutrition. The YTT is specialised, and a qualification.
