Yet, there isn't a size-diverse approach taught in
fitness leadership programs.
Many plus-size people have a long history of facing:
Broken relationship with exercise
All or nothing relationship with fitness
Body Rejection both internal and societal
Feelings of not belonging in wellness spaces
Generational messages of body hate
Fear of failure, judgement, or injury
Inability to perform like other gym-goers which creates an element of shame
Negative experiences in fitness spaces
There is a Proven Strategy to combat these barriers and an opportunity to be a part of changing the fabric of our fitness culture.

CHOOSE YOUR PLAN
This is not a course about how to help clients lose weight. We do cover the challenges of weight loss and why we deter from weight being a focus. This course is designed to give the larger-bodied client the best fitness experience possible, which we know creates a long-term, healthier, client.
We do not have future date specifics at this time but anticipate offering another course in the fall which will be a self-paced learning model. The initial course is the only one we have planned at this time with Louise Green conducting the course material.
This course will eventually be offered in a self-pace model with video content instead of face-to-face instruction. This will allow other time zones to participate.
Yes, check out the section who this is for. However, this course alone does not allow individuals to teach fitness without a recognized certificate such as group fitness or personal training.
Full participation is required for completion, if you have an extenuating circumstance that requires you to miss 1-2 hours, please contact us to arrange. All participants must be in attendance for Module Four.
You will need to access Zoom Conferencing, (link will be sent) and a stable internet connection.
Course registration fees are non-refundable; should Big Fit Academy need to cancel the course for whatever reason, registrants will receive a complete refund or credit towards another course.
Requests to change registration from one course to another must be made to our offices via email at email@example.com at least 7 days before the course date.
An 80% passing rate is required for completion and we are confident that each person will reach this benchmark. If you do not on the first go you will have the opportunity to retake the exam.
