Is the CPPC right for me?

Who is the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification for?

The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is for any health and fitness professional who wants to better understand, connect with, serve, and empower their female clients. It’s for anyone who wants to join the revolution that’s allowing women to finally get the pre- and postnatal care they deserve.

Of the people who hire a coach or trainer the majority of them are women — and 85 percent of women will be pregnant at some point in their lives. This means that if you work with women, some of your clients are pre- and postnatal women.

Whether it’s to take your coaching career to a new level and become the go-to expert in your area, be a woman who empowers other women, or help woman finally change the way they feel about themselves and their bodies (especially during pregnancy and postpartum), this Certification is for you.

The pregnancy and postpartum period are exceptional times in a woman’s life, and every woman’s experience is different, even from one pregnancy to the next. These variations require a unique understanding of what a woman may be experiencing, from both a psychological and physiological standpoint. We understand that every woman has a unique set of values, priorities, desires, resources, and goals that must be considered when designing an effective program to help her have her happiest, healthiest, safest and strongest pregnancy and postpartum experience.

I’m not a certified trainer. Can I still purchase this?

Yes, you are still able to purchase our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification, however, we do strongly recommend that you hold at least one other basic personal training and/or fitness certification from a major certifying body like NSCA, NASM, ACSM, etc. They each offer an important baseline foundation of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and exercise science that will allow you to have a broader understanding of training concepts and application, and a better understanding of our material.

For example, our certification’s anatomy and physiology unit is approximately 65 to 70 pages long, and we are almost solely discussing the anatomy of the female core and pelvis and the physiology of pregnant and postpartum women. Additionally, being insured is incredibly important when working with clients. Many of the major certifying bodies offer insurance.

So yes, you can get it — and since it’s a self-paced course you can always purchase it on September 5th, and then wait to take it until you’ve completed another baseline cert, or you could wait until our registration opens again in 2018.

If I’m a brand-new trainer, can this still help me?

Absolutely! You won’t find a more well-researched, practical guide to working with pre- and postnatal women anywhere. You can feel confident that you are helping your clients get the best results possible while keeping them safe and healthy — both physically and psychologically — all while adding more tools to your toolbox. Experience is a big part of what makes a trainer great, and using this program allows you to gain the experience you need to become an incredible trainer while having the confidence that you’re not “guessing” with your clients.

If I have never worked with pregnant or postpartum women, is the CPPC still right for me?

If you work with women, even if you don’t think you work with pre- and postnatal women, you probably do. That’s because 85 percent of women will have a baby at some point in their lives, and as the saying goes, “once postnatal, always postnatal.” In other words, it’s almost guaranteed that if you work with women, you work with postnatal women! To be clear, this doesn’t mean that once a woman has children she has a permanent set of limitations or restrictions. It simply means that there are certain considerations a trainer needs to make, and knowledge a trainer needs to have to know how to work with postnatal women — even if they had their child(ren) five, 10, or 20 years ago.

Can I earn CEUs for any of the major fitness certifications by completing this course?

We are working on it! Getting approval to provide CEUs can take a couple of months after submitting the application, and since our textbook contains roughly 150,000 words and we have tons of bonus resources, demonstration and coaching videos, and an online portal filled with information, it’s going to take the certifying bodies a while to get through all the material and determine CEU totals.

That said, we have never been turned down for CEUs and certainly don’t anticipate being turned down now. We have plans to apply through NASM and ACSM in the United States, and possibly ACE as well. We are applying through CanFitPro in Canada, REPS in the UK, and Fitness Australia in Australia.

If your certifying body is not one of the ones to which we’ve applied for CEUs, you should be able to petition for them to accept the certification CEUs based on our acceptance by other organizations. We will be happy to help you in that process if you needed it.

I live overseas. If I purchase the Certification, and it turns out that it doesn’t qualify for CEUs in my country, can I get a refund?

 

If your certifying body is not one of the ones to which we’ve applied for CEUs, you should be able to petition for them to accept the certification CEUs based on our acceptance by other organizations. And we would be happy to help you in that process if you needed it.

Our refund policy will stand from your date of purchase. We are so confident that this Certification will profoundly change your clients’ lives — whether or not you are able to obtain CEUs for it — that we’re willing to back that up with a 45-day, risk-free guarantee. Once the risk-free guarantee period ends, we will no longer be issuing refunds.

I live overseas. Am I able to wait until I know whether the CPPC qualifies for CEUs in my country before I purchase? Will I still qualify for the early enrollment discount?

As mentioned above, getting approval to provide CEUs can take a couple of months after submitting the application and materials for review.

We’re focused on providing a super high-quality product that is going to profoundly change your clients’ lives — whether or not you are able to obtain CEUs for it — and we are almost certain the limited number of spots will sell out in during our short enrollment period. For this reason, we’re not in a position to extend the early enrollment discount beyond the initial period.

I’m already a pre- and postnatal expert. Am I going to learn anything I don’t already know?

That depends. If you have a Ph.D. in molecular biology and psychology, and you’re an MD who has delivered thousands of babies while getting your physical therapy licensure and finishing your master’s in pre- and postnatal exercise while training to be a doula, then there’s a 27 percent chance you won’t learn anything new.

All kidding aside, we can guarantee you will absolutely learn a ton of valuable information from this certification. That’s what’s so brilliant about having 16 leading experts in women’s health and fitness contribute to our curriculum. Nowhere else can you learn from pre- and postnatal experts, OB-GYNs, doulas, psychologists, and physiotherapists all through one program that you can complete at your own pace. By the way, three of our physios have been or are currently sitting members of the Board of the Directors for the American Physical Therapy Association, Section on Women’s Health. While that’s not an implied or official endorsement from the Board, it’s important to us that you know the caliber of experts involved in the certification. We’ve brought out the big guns just for you!

Are there any requirements to maintain my certification?

You will need to retake an exam two years from the date of course completion to keep your certification current. The renewal process is in place to ensure your knowledge is current, and you’re still practicing at the top of your field. However, you will not have to retake the entire course and pay the full fee.

How can I know if this course is legit?

While the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is the first Certification to come out of the Coaching and Training Women Academy, the Academy is owned and operated by Girls Gone Strong — the world’s most trusted resource for evidence-based, body-positive information, designed by women, for women.

    • Bonus workout templates for every trimester and phase of postpartum recovery and return to exercise.

How is this different from Jessie Mundell’s Postnatal Fitness Specialist Academy?

Great question! To be honest, it’s a bit tricky to identify specifically how they differ because only one woman on the team has completed Jessie’s course — she’s currently on maternity leave and not reachable, but has informed us that Jessie’s course and our certification are very different. The best thing we can do is give you details about our CPPC course so that you have a better understanding, and let you ask any other questions you have.

Our certification includes:

  • A 500-page hardcover textbook divided into five units, with dozens of case studies and resources you can reference for years to come.
  • An accompanying workbook with practice questions and case studies to help you deepen your understanding of the materials, practice what you’ve learned, and study for the exams.
  • Custom-built, mobile-friendly online portal filled with:
    • High-definition coaching and demonstration videos for every unit.
    • Bonus workout templates for every trimester and phase of postpartum recovery and return to exercise
    • Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaires to use with pregnant and postpartum clients.
    • Multiple assessment tools to use with pregnant and postpartum clients, including a daily assessment tool to help you adjust a client’s programming day to day as needed.
    • Additional reading and resource recommendations for further exploration.
    • Comprehensive unit exams.
  • Access to a closed Facebook group where you can engage with the authors of the certification as well as other students, participate in group discussions, and get help when you need it.
  • An interdisciplinary approach to all of this information. Of the 16 women’s health experts from five countries who created this curriculum, here are their areas of expertise:
    • 6 Physiotherapists
    • 4 Pre- & Postnatal fitness experts
    • 1 OB-GYN
    • 1 Doula
    • 1 Nurse Practitioner who is also a Midwife
    • 3 PhDs in exercise science, molecular biology, and psychology

Here’s a sample of our Anatomy and Physiology chapter.

When does the course start?

If you’re on the pre-sale list, you can register on September 5th, with a limited number of spaces available (you’ll also save $200!) If there are any spaces left, we will open registration to the general public on September 6th. You will have 24/7 access to the online course materials right away, and you can get started immediately. Your textbook will be shipped within 5 to 10 business days of your payment being processed.

The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification will be available for enrollment for a limited time only and then won’t be available until we open the course again in 2018!

How much time do I need to complete the course?

Our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is a self-paced course. That means you can work through the materials at your own pace and make sure it fits your individual schedule.

The pace that seems to work well for many people is one chapter per week, including: reading the chapter in the textbook, watching any accompanying videos, answering the worksheet questions and case studies, digging into any relevant resources or reading materials, and possibly taking the unit exam if you’re at the end of a unit. Following that structure, you can expect to spend three to five hours per week on the materials. Since there are 22 chapters, you’ll finish your certification in four to five months.

For how long will I be able to access the online portal?

Access to our online portal never expires. You’ll be able to refer back to your materials and resources throughout your career.

Who developed the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification?

The Pre- & Post Coaching Certification was developed and reviewed by 16 women from five different countries who are leaders in their fields. They include: pelvic health, spine, and musculoskeletal physiotherapists, pre- and postnatal experts, OB-GYNS, doulas, and psychologists. These women have a combined 190 years of clinical and practical experience and 25 children between them, and understand that every woman has a unique set of values, priorities, desires, resources, and goals that must be considered when designing an effective program to help her have her happiest, healthiest, safest and strongest pregnancy and postpartum experience.

We’re super proud that our team of contributors and reviewers also includes three past and present members of the Board of Directors for the American Physical Therapy Association, Section on Women’s Health — the global authority on abdominal and pelvic health. This is not an official or implied endorsement from the Section on Women’s Health, but we are excited about the caliber of experts we have on the team.

Since this is a certification, will there be a test at the end?

Yes! There are five comprehensive unit exams. Each unit exam contains  30 to 40 questions (depending on the length of the unit) for a total of 150 to 200 questions — and you can go at your own pace.

You will also have a workbook with lots of questions and case studies for every unit. The workbook and case studies are not graded. They are designed to deepen your understanding of the material, help you prepare for the exam, and give you more confidence in applying the information you’ve learned.

CPPC vs. Moms Gone Strong

What’s the difference between the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification and Moms Gone Strong?

Moms Gone Strong is the most well-researched, comprehensive pre- and postnatal nutrition, exercise, and self-care program ever released. It was developed by 12 experts from a wide variety of disciplines.

The main difference between Moms Gone Strong and the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is that Moms Gone Strong mostly covers the “what” of pre- and postnatal exercise, nutrition, and self-care, with a little bit of the “why.” Essentially, it’s a book that walks you (or your clients) through exactly what to do — and if it meets your needs, that’s fantastic.

But we know that as a coach — you’re craving more. The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification takes you through significantly more of the what, answers all of the why — and then shows you how to implement these methods into your coaching — making you an even better coach.

As you become a CPPC, you’ll get the steps for exactly how to talk to your pregnant or postpartum clients so you understand their needs, help them set goals and see results.

Using clear, concise language and images, we’ll teach you exactly what is going on with your client’s body during and after pregnancy so that you can guide them safely through their fitness journey.

You’ll get a step-by-step guide for preparing your client to thrive during pregnancy — and feel empowered to love their body and their life even if they had their kiddos years ago.

Here’s a list of what you’ll receive with CPPC vs. Moms Gone Strong.

Moms Gone Strong

  • A 447-page book with information about nutrition, training, and self-care before, during and after pregnancy.
  • A 298-page Progress Tracker with 90 weeks of done-for-you workouts.
  • Exercise Glossary with over 100 exercise.
  • Video Library with over 100 demonstration videos.

Pre- and Postnatal Coaching Certification

  • A 500-page hard cover textbook divided into five units, with dozens of case studies and resources you can reference for years to come:
    • Unit 1: How to be a great coach.
    • Unit 2: Female anatomy and physiology, including how a woman’s body changes during and after pregnancy and common during/post-pregnancy concerns.
    • Unit 3: Foundational nutrition, exercise, psychology, and rest and recovery.
    • Unit 4: How nutrition, exercise, psychology, and rest and recovery change during each trimester. If you have a client in her first trimester, you can read that chapter and know exactly what she is (probably) experiencing at that stage of her pregnancy.
    • Unit 5: All about postpartum, including assessments and how postpartum affects nutrition, exercise, psychology, and rest and recovery.
    • Appendices: A library of useful information for your long-term coaching success including the GGS Code of Ethics, food source lists, all about supplements, exercise categories, miscarriage and infant loss, and more.
  • An accompanying workbook with practice questions and case studies to help you deepen your understanding of the materials, practice what you’ve learned, and study for the exams.
  • Custom-built, mobile-friendly online portal filled with:
    • High-definition coaching and demonstration videos for every unit.
    • Bonus workout templates for every trimester and phase of postpartum recovery and return to exercise
    • Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaires to use with pregnant and postpartum clients.
    • Multiple assessment tools to use with pregnant and postpartum clients, including a daily assessment tool to help you adjust a client’s programming day to day as needed.
    • Additional reading and resource recommendations for further exploration.
    • Comprehensive unit exams.
  • Access to a closed Facebook group where you can engage with the authors of the certification as well as other students, participate in group discussions, and get help when you need it.
  • An interdisciplinary approach to all of this information. Of the 16 women’s health experts from five countries who created this curriculum, here are their areas of expertise:
    • 6 Physiotherapists
    • 4 Pre- & Postnatal fitness experts
    • 1 OB-GYN
    • 1 Doula
    • 1 Nurse Practitioner who is also a Midwife
    • 3 PhDs in exercise science, molecular biology, and psychology

Both are incredible resources, and we proudly stand behind them. From our perspective, Moms Gone Strong is perfect for moms, moms-to-be, and coaches and trainers who want really specific guidance about what women “should” be doing to optimize their nutrition, training, and self-care before, during, and after pregnancy. It’s also great for coaches and trainers who can’t afford the investment of the certification at this time, and want to offer their clients top-notch programming in the meantime.

The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is for coaches and trainers who want to understand all of the why, and who want to gain the skills to implement all of the information into their coaching with their clients.

If I purchased Moms Gone Strong do I need to purchase CPPC as well?

That depends on what your goals are.The main difference between Moms Gone Strong and the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is that Moms Gone Strong mostly covers the “what” of pre- and postnatal exercise, nutrition, and self-care, with a little bit of the “why.” Essentially, it’s a book that walks you (or your clients) through exactly what to do.

How much does it cost?

The full investment in the course is $1200, but if you’re on the pre-sale list you’ll save $200!

Also, if you’ve purchased our Moms Gone Strong program, we are offering an additional discount of whatever you paid for Moms Gone Strong off the price of the certification, as a way to say “thank you” for your support.

For example, if you purchased our Platinum Moms Gone Strong program for $249 and you are on the pre-sale list, you will save a total of $449 off the price of the certification and will pay only $751 instead of $1200!

Do you offer scholarships?

We recognize that the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification is a big investment of your time and money, and we don’t take that lightly. We also know how profoundly it’s going to change the lives of the women you coach and train. In order to make the Certification as accessible as possible to as many people as possible, we have payment plans available, and we are currently offering huge discounts during this enrollment period for those who previously bought Moms Gone Strong. At this time, we aren’t offering scholarships to the Certification, but if that changes in the future we’ll be sure to let our community know.

I already own Moms Gone Strong. Can I get a discount on the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification?

Whatever you paid for Moms Gone Strong will be taken off the price of the certification if you buy the certification during our September 5th registration period. For example, if you’re on the pre-sale list and you bought the Platinum version of Moms Gone Strong for $249, you’ll save a total of $449 off the price of the certification!

If I buy Moms Gone Strong and I’m on the pre-sale list do I get both the pre-sale discount and the Moms Gone Strong credit?

YES! If you buy Moms Gone Strong and are on the pre-sale list, you get to stack your discounts (but only for this initial release of the certification!). For example, if you’re on the pre-sale list and you bought the Platinum version of Moms Gone Strong for $249, you’ll save a total of $449 off the price of the certification!

Is there a Refund Policy?

You’re protected with our 100 percent risk-free, money-back guarantee. We know that the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification has the power to change the lives of women everywhere, making for a better pregnancy and postpartum experience, healing their core and pelvic floor years after pregnancy, and empowering them to feel comfortable in their own skin.

And that’s not hype — that’s straight from the mouths of the women who’ve completed our program, all of whom are coaches and trainers, and several of whom experienced previous pregnancies without our program and felt that the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification was the difference.

We are so confident that this Certification will profoundly change your clients’ lives, that we are willing to back that up with a 45-day, risk-free guarantee.

That’s our promise. Try the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification for 45 days. If you’re not happy with what you learn, get in touch with us and we’ll give you every penny back. We’re confident in what we do, and we stand by our work.

Should you decide you want your money back (we’re confident that you won’t!), even if you’ve completed all of your coursework, your name will be removed from the Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coaches registry on the GGS website, and you’ll no longer be able to access the online portal.

Will portions of the course be available? Or, do I have to purchase the entire thing?

No. The Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification components will not be available a la carte. We have specifically designed all of the elements of this Certification to work synergistically to provide the best and most effective learning experience possible. The textbook, videos, workbook, and bonus templates are designed to optimize your learning experience so that you can become the best and most effective Certified Pre- & Postnatal Coach possible.

If you’re not sure that you’re ready to make the investment, we understand. We suggest you start with our Moms Gone Strong manual, which includes nutrition, training, and lifestyle information for women who are trying to conceive, are pregnant, or are postpartum, including 90 weeks of training programs, already done for you at a much lower price than the certification. It will give you a taste of the quality of information we provide at Girls Gone Strong.

Technical Questions and Support

Where can I go with questions about the program after I start?

If you have questions about the program after you start, feel free to reach out in our FREE Coaching and Training Women Facebook group and ask. Plenty of coaches and trainers in the group will have purchased the program themselves, and may be able to answer your questions!

Do I get one-on-one support?

No, we don’t offer one-on-one support as we’ve found group support to be the most effective way for members of our community to learn. We run a number of closed Facebook groups, and members of those groups constantly rave about how valuable they find the support and resources that the community provides.

We’re confident that our large community of coaches and trainers, along with our group moderators and experts in the Coaching and Training Women Facebook group will be available to help answer just about any question you may have about the curriculum. And of course, our stellar client care team is always just an email away at info@girlsgonestrong.com to help with any technical issues or other questions you may have. We deeply care about your experience with our program, we will take care of you to the best of our abilities.

How do I get access to the program once I buy it?

We have custom-built a streamlined, easy-to-use, intuitive, online portal that houses all of our certification material in one place. It is optimized for both desktop and mobile devices. You’ll have access right away to get started and go through the program at your own pace. In the meantime, your beautifully designed, easy-to-use Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification textbook — a highly useful reference for your coaching career for years to come — will be shipped within 5 to 10 business days of your payment being processed.

What is the story behind the decision to make the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification?

The majority of people who hire a coach or trainer are women, and 85 percent of women will be pregnant at some point in their lives. That means that if you’re a coach or trainer who works with women, you’re working with pre- and postnatal women.

The fact is that most coaches and trainers — even the best ones — are woefully ill-equipped to properly help pre- and postnatal women, and it’s having a damaging effect on those women’s lives. We’re on a mission to change this.

So, we gathered 16 of the world’s leading women’s health experts to create a certification that will give coaches and trainers the skills, tools, and techniques to finally give their female clients the positive experience they deserve at all stages of their pregnancy and long after they deliver.

Not only will the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification make you a better coach, you’ll also be part of a powerful movement that will have a profound and lasting impact on the women you coach and train.

Does the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification come with a textbook?

Yes, and you’re going to love it! Our textbook is just one of the things that set the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification apart from other pre- and postnatal programs. It is a beautifully designed, easy-to-use, hardcover textbook with roughly 150,000 words and 500 pages. It will be a highly useful reference for your coaching career for years to come. Our textbook designer has years of experience creating well-designed textbooks that enhance the learning process.

About the Coaching & Training Women Academy 

What is the Coaching and Training Women Academy?

The CTW Academy operates entirely online and will house multiple certifications specific to working with women, including the Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification (Coming September 5th!), Psychology of Coaching Women Certification (July 2018), and a certification which will likely focus on coaching peri-menopausal women (2019). Each of these certifications will include a hardcover textbook, a workbook, and an online portal full of videos, worksheets, case studies, and other downloadable resources. All courses will be self-paced with online exams.

Why did you start the Academy?

It’s appalling that in 2017 there still such a lack of knowledge about women-specific health and fitness issues, particularly the type of care women need and deserve in the pre- and postpartum period. When someone has knee surgery, the doctor insists that they follow very specific rest and recovery protocols and engage in physiotherapy/physical therapy multiple times per week for several months. Yet, postpartum women are told to “not drive or lift anything for six weeks and you’ll be fine,” or “as long as you’re active, you’ll heal fine.”

This is exactly what we are hoping to put an end to with our Coaching and Training Women Academy. This industry has been under-serving women for years and we truly believe the Coaching and Training Women Academy is a crucial first step toward an industry overhaul. The CTW Academy will offer multiple certifications to raise awareness and offer resources for health and fitness professionals to better understand, connect with, and serve their female clients, ultimately becoming better coaches!

We’re thrilled to think how powerful it will be that our Pre- and Postnatal Coaching Certification (CPPC) raises awareness about the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to working with women where practitioners from all different fields recognize and value the contributions of one another, and understand how an interdisciplinary approach can be incredibly valuable to their clients and patients.

Are there are other certifications I can take through the Academy?

Our Pre- & Postnatal Coaching Certification opens for enrollment on September 5th if you’re on the pre-sale list (which means you save $200!) We’re anticipating launching our Psychology of Coaching Women Certification in July 2018, and we’re looking at 2019 for our third certification, which will likely focus on coaching peri-menopausal women. Each of these certifications will come with a hardcover textbook, a workbook, and an online portal full of videos, worksheets, case studies, and other downloadable resources. All courses will be self-paced with online exams.

Who runs the Academy?

The Coaching and Training Women Academy is powered by Girls Gone Strong.

Do I have to be a member of the Academy to take the Certifications?

Nope! There are no membership requirements for the Academy. To complement your Certification we do suggest if you haven’t joined the GGS community (whether it be through our online newsletter or one of our closed Facebook groups) that you get involved immediately to gain access to a ton of super valuable information and experts.

How do I know if the Academy is legit?

Our Academy is owned and operated by Girls Gone Strong — the world’s most trusted resource for evidence-based, body-positive information, designed by women, for women. To create our certifications, we bring together dozens of the world’s top women’s health experts. They are PhDs, physiotherapists, pre- and postnatal fitness experts, certified strength and conditioning coaches, psychologists, exercise scientists, doulas, midwives, OB-GYNs, molecular biologists, nurse practitioners, behavior change experts, and registered dietitians.
