The Menopause for Athletes course is the culmination of the latest research and over 20 years of my experience. It is designed for peri, menopausal and post-menopausal women interested in using science-based strategies to help them continue to perform and live their best lives.
Core Course. This is a comprehensive science-based course about menopause like no other out there. It’s five Modules containing over 20 Chapters of video-based learning material in a relaxed, informative, non-threatening style.
Help with your learning. There is supplementary learning material for each Module, links to other interesting and relevant content and critical thinking exercises.
Recognition. A Course Completion certification will be issued once you have completed the course.
Technical support. We take great pride in the quality of our support and we aim to have a response back to you within 24 hours.
1. The Science of Menopause
In this module I will take you through what is menopause, review the hormones associated with it and look at the common symptoms and theories behind the causes.
In this module I will look at interventions like Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) and then suggest alternatives that might be appropriate for some people.
3. Training for the Menopausal Athlete
In this module I will talk about how our training needs are changing due to our changing body. I cover how to train, when to train, how hard to train, and what sort of training to do.
4. Nutrition for the Menopausal Athlete
In this module I will dive deep into nutritional aspects of menopause and talk about some of the fad diets out there. I will talk about how to change your diet to match what is going on with your body.
5. Case Studies
In this module I will go over 9 case studies of women I have worked with. I go into detail about their situation when I first saw them, then what we did, and then the outcome. I am sure you will find a huge amount of practical information on nutrition and training that applies to yourself here.
Value: Revisit the content as you have access to course materials for a year.
Self Help: Using keywords, you can search all the content to go straight to your topic of interest (once all the Modules have been released).
Recognition: A course completion certification.
What some students thought of the course.
What is the Course like?
Here is a short version of one of the case studies from the course.
"Doing this course was like hitting the reset button for me. After a couple of years of getting slower and fatter while putting in heavy hours on the bike, I now feel like this is a new beginning. I changed my training schedule drastically by implementing plyo, HIIT and heavy weights and reduced my zone 2 rides significantly. I can already feel the difference! For the first time in years it feels that I am in control of what is happening to my body and not going downhill fast. Every woman should seriously consider this course - worth every cent!
"Menopause for Athletes is an absolutely outstanding course. This is information that every woman should know. Stacy Sims makes the scientific information very understandable. The course also provides so much practical application. I will be watching this course over and over and over! I feel so alone navigating menopause. This course has given me hope! After going through this course I finally feel like I have the tools to improve my health and my athletic performance. Thank you Stacy Sims!"
Another excellent course from Dr. Stacy Sims, providing a detailed insight into the body of a menopausal athlete and all that it needs to train and perform well. The content was clearly presented, backed up with research and case studies, and the links between hormones, training, and nutrition made explicit. As a coach who works primarily with menopausal runners, I'm already applying what I've learned every day and with great success. Thank you Dr. Sims for sharing your expertise in a way that will help menopausal athletes worldwide in a way they have not been supported before.
"Dr. Stacy Sims' menopause for athlete's course is hands down one of the best continuing education courses I have had the pleasure to take. It should be required material for all coaches it trainers. It challenges the way we think about (and stigmatize) women's health. Dr Sims offers deep insight into understanding hormones and how they impact training, nutrition, recovery, and how to program accordingly. Thank you!"
There is so much information out there for coaches, athletes, and the everyday woman that contains inaccuracies. Dr. Sims has put together the most comprehensive, science-based program for peri/postmenopausal women. I see this being a game-changer not only for the "aging" athlete but for any active woman struggling with a changing body.
From the first chapter to the last, this course provided solid science. As an OT and personal trainer, the how and why given is super valuable. I was using what I learned right away on myself and clients. I will be taking her other courses in the future. Definitely worth the time and money, 100 times over.
