Praise for Dr. Stacy Sims' Work
Karen Weir (UK)
Very useful and informative, but more importantly, this information should be available to every woman and not just to enlightened coaches who are taking an interest in the menopausal athlete. It is essential knowledge.
Nancy Monson (USA)
Dr. Sims' Menopause course provided a pivotal change for me that came at a critical time in my life. Although I am 64 years old, I was still training and eating in the more typical ways, which led me to have chronic sleep issues, increasingly slow workouts, and losing lean muscle mass. I have already begun to implement her most essential recommendations from this course, and they have already started to help me get better rest and recovery and gain muscle. I will be sharing all I've learned with my clients and followers as I know the information she has shared will be essential to their long-term health and fitness.
Joe Dailey (USA)
This course is a great help to me as a running, tri and cycling coach who wants to use the latest science and information to assist my female athletes. This course builds on the foundation Women Are Not Small Men Course and adds a focus on peri and post-menopausal athletes and has helped me fundamentally change the way I coach my female athletes to help them get the results they desire as well as to lead healthier lives. Thanks Dr. Sims' and company, keep up the good work!
Kristen Arnold (USA)
As a sports RD specializing in sports nutrition for women, this course was essential learning for me. The format and delivery of the course was easy to absorb, and the information was targeted yet comprehensive. Dr. Sims is a world-class specialist and her findings cannot be understated!
Colleen Gray-Hewett (Canada)
As a peri-menopausal Ironman athlete, cyclist, cycling coach, and nutrition coach, the information provided in Stacy Sims' Menopause for Athletes program is a game changer. Literally. You will feel empowered to tackle the many hits that come our way through these tumultuous years that leave so many of us down and out, feeling weak and slow and frustrated with not knowing what to do to get it back. This program gives you the biological and physiological understanding of how we are changing. Stacy also outlines in very specific detail how to support our bodies through nutrition, including training-specific nutrition and specific training protocols for how to break through the loss of muscle mass, speed, and power that is often combined with weight gain and brain fog that most sport and nutrition coaches do not grasp.
Andrea Horne (Canada)
Every woman who wants to take control of their own journey through menopause should take this course. It examines the what, when, why, and how of getting older. Strategized suggested changes in training, eating, and self-care are presented in a friendly format that will help women keep moving and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
Michelle Dinsdale (South Africa)
This course is everything if you love your sport and want to continue to succeed in it in your best shape and without the negative effects of Menopause!! We can still do hard things way into our senior years!
Tite Togni (Italy)
The course is unique in addressing the double specificity of Menopause and woman athletes, debunking major myths around both, targeting the 2 main areas: exercise and nutrition that are treated not in quantity but by quality. By clarifying the science of a woman's metabolism and energetic functioning, that is different from that of a man, it lays the foundation of a thriving menopause as well as a successful and joyful sports life way before menopause itself. This course is a treasure for women of all ages and should be renamed Longlife for Athletes Course!
Sue Allen (UK)
As a coach looking to help many of my clients who want to be able to perform at their best for as long as possible. This course has given me a great insight into how to help them make changes in their training, nutrition and how certain supplements can help them transition from being a great senior athlete into an even better master athlete.
Jennifer Polk (USA)
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/post-menopausal women. I see this being a game changer not only for the "aging" athlete but for any active woman struggling with a changing body.
Deb Kempe (Australia)
I have just completed the Menopause online course presented by Dr. Stacy Sims. Instinctively I had always known that we needed a paradigm shift in all aspects of our thinking about this demographic, particularly with the way we have been coaching female athletes. This course provided the science, the practical application, and the motivation to have the conversations and implement the significant changes that will improve the health, performance, potential, and wellbeing of females wishing to be and stay active and competitive for as long as they chose to.
Stacey Ness (Australia)
Loved this course with Dr. Stacy Sims. Straight to the point. Highly educated material that is easy to understand and to put into practice. Would highly recommend this course if you are just looking to understand how to get the most out of your body and for creating balance in your life. Thank you, Stacy.
Debbie Watson (Australia)
The Menopause Course is pure gold. I wish I had it available when I first hit perimenopause - it would have made a HUGE difference to the 62 year old me now. However never too late to change and armed with this excellent information, I plan to be training well into my 'later years'.
Maia Meier (Canada)
I really enjoyed this course! It was presented in an easy to follow format, and allowed me to work at my own pace, fitting in modules throughout my day. The information and knowledge I gained have allowed me to start making changes to my own training and nutrition, and I've begun implementing aspects with my peri and post-menopausal client training programs as well.
Samantha Rothberg (USA)
Dr. Stacy Sims' menopause 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 and 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!
Fiona Barnes (UK)
This course is fantastic, I can't recommend it enough, not only as a recreational running coach but also as a peri-menopausal endurance runner myself. The content is easily digestible and completely relevant. I took longer than five weeks to complete it as I kept returning to it to really embed the info and strategy. I've implemented changes and strategies from the course, and myself and some of my peri/post-menopausal athletes are already feeling the benefits.
Sara Crawford (USA)
This is a "must take" course for any athlete in peri-menopause and beyond or anyone coaching these athletes. After taking this course, the old mindset of lots of carbs and lots of LSD goes out the window. Take this course to help train and eat smarter!
Stephanie Diaz (USA)
The Menopause course has transformed me not only as an athlete but also as someone who works with women. The course covered everything from the science behind menopause to practical applications for the information presented. In general, the course is incredibly empowering and validating of the female athlete experience. Women are not small men, and that's what makes women absolutely amazing.
Kelly Mepham (UK)
This course has revolutionised my approach to training peri/post-menopausal women, and I've had lots of 'light-bulb' moments! I now have so many women lifting heavy weights that have historically been scared to but now understand their importance!
Matthew Lamb (Australia)
The course content and delivery of information was awesome. As a male and training a high percentage of ladies within this age bracket, it has given me a renewed confidence in delivering optimal health outcomes.
Dorette Franks (USA)
As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist working in the field of sports nutrition, I found this course to be hands down, one of the most engaging courses I have taken to advance my understanding and knowledge pertaining to female athletes, peri- and menopause, nutrition, and training intervention methodologies. I appreciated how Dr. Sims discussed the importance of the gut biome and how dysbiosis plays a critical role in role health. I'm enthusiastic to share the information with fellow male and female professionals as well as my female friends and clients. Dorette Franks, RDN. Clinical Sports Dietitian.

Jane Williams (New Zealand)
Stacy's Menopause course was just what I wanted. As a Women's Health Coach and PT a lot of my clients are going through the menopause transition, (including myself). The knowledge I have gained from this course is going to be so beneficial to help them and myself be where we want to be and feel great about ourselves. I loved that it was all based on comprehensive research, and Stacy presents it in such a way that it is relatively easy to understand and implement.
Lee Scotland (Australia)
I have done several courses on Menopause and training/coaching the peri - post-menopausal woman. None have come even close to presenting so much practical information that is scalable and implementable for the average woman regardless of exercise/life experience. Every recommendation is backed by science which is explained so that the layperson can understand it easily. Although I have completed the course, I can't wait to dive back in and find more nuggets of information that I may have skimmed over last time. I am excited to be able to implement my new knowledge into my programs for my clients. I can't recommend this course more highly!! Congratulations Stacy!
Rachael Sellars (USA)
This Menopause course is a MUST! Every module was so educational and insightful. Dr. Stacy Sims has put so much information in one course that I truly believe that ALL women should take it. I am a 50 year old woman going thru the transition and would consider myself an athlete, trainer, and teacher. I learned so much from taking this Menopause for Athletes course. Not only for myself but for my clients, students, and friends. This course is mind-blowing. I've applied what I've learned and feel confident to share and insight. This course is a must.
Gaylene Yovich (New Zealand)
As an athlete since the age of 9 (now 57), I thought I had a strong attunement and understanding of my body until my late 40s. I wish all the life changing information I've learned during the Menopause course was available for me at that time, but I'm thankful to have received it now. Strong, steady, and confident movement within a mobile physical body is possible again - I'm up for and LOVE the challenge!
Cassie Mason (USA)
This course changed my perspective on training. With all the noise in the fitness industry, this class keeps things simple and combines it with what we know about women's physiology. Stacy gives super detailed case studies which allow you to take the education and actually apply it. I would suggest any fitness professional that works with women take this course, and at the very least, it helped improve my knowledge for my personal health in the future. It is definitely worth your time & investment.
Barbara Kreijtz (Netherlands)
This was THE course to do for me! As a coach, it has given me valuable insights into the female physiology and I can bring my coaching to a higher level; as an active athlete, it has given me proven benefits and to the youngsters that I coach I can show that my grey hairs mean that I am older than them, but still fighting fit.
Kate Brown (Switzerland)
Stacy's course really clearly sets out what we should be doing for our athletic performance goals and the health of our bones and muscles
Vanessa Emslie (South Africa)
The Menopause course was superb. So much clear, concise information that really makes you question the status quo, but also provides direction and guidance on how to adapt training, nutrition, recovery, and techniques across many different facets of menopause and female athletes.
Anita Del Testa (Australia)
I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Menopause course by Dr. Stacy Sims. The delivery of content really is geared towards maximising your understanding of this important topic. It contained very high-quality content which was well structured and delivered with a genuine desire to share her knowledge and present it in a way that was engaging and easy to follow. The workbook provided, which also has references and interesting links for further reading, is well worth printing out and completing as you go through the course. I can highly recommend this course!
Sharon Williams (UK)
A compelling, timely, and hugely informative course. I have learned so much; most of which I can put into practice straight away for myself and the athletes I coach. Stacy delivers the course really well and patiently repeats, rewords, and reframes the fundamental points in so many different ways and in different scenarios. So much so that concepts which sounded so new the first time I heard them, became really familiar which really helped hammer home all that each module offered.
Marianne Thissen-Smits (Netherlands)
I absolutely LOVED this course. It is based on scientific evidence which to date has been lacking for female athletes. I will be using a lot of this course material in coaching sessions with my female athletes!
Louise Miller (New Zealand)
For me, this course was not about competing better as an athlete but more about how to stay healthy as an active post-menopausal woman. Learning how to get the best out of activity so that I can keep up with the grandkids and not feel too exhausted after work to do so
Sara-Lise Harris (United Arab Emirates)
I signed up for the Dr. Stacy Sims Menopause course as I have been a follower and disciple of hers since 2017. I am a 51 year old menopausal athlete with a multitude of problems of my own, and had to battle the peri-menopausal bulge. Now that I am close to "goal weight", I needed to know how to do better at it all, my training, my nutrition, my head space! I also have a lot of athletes in my age category and thereabouts and needed to do this course to be able to train them better. I would definitely do more courses like this, as they become available.
