What people are saying about the Size Inclusive Fitness Specialist Course...
“SITA’s Size Inclusive Fitness Specialist Training is a breath of fresh air in the fitness industry. I can't recommend this training enough! These affirming teachings can be of so much benefit to Personal Trainers, Yoga Teachers, Gym Owners, Nutritionists, and the clients they serve. Louise Green has created something very special here & I'm so thrilled to have been a part of her very first cohort!”
“After taking the Size Inclusive Fitness Certification I imagined how differently I would feel about exercise and myself in general if fitness professionals had this training available to them back in my younger days. Things are changing and inclusivity is increasing but we have a long way to go. If you are a fitness or wellness professional, gym owner, or simply someone that wants to better understand the experiences of people in larger bodies I encourage you to take this training.”
“This course should be essential for gyms, trainers and other professionals within the health & wellness space to keep their offerings current - as the industry shifts from exclusive and limiting to a broader audience of accepting all bodies. The insight and community connection was invaluable for not only my person but also my business!”
"Loved every moment of this! I've had my own health and wellness journey over this past decade and diving into the fitness realm changed my life! I left corporate, became a personal trainer and now am so excited to focus more on welcoming ALL BODIES into my business. This certification has me ready to ensure my clients are happy, healthy and STRONG! Thank you Louise!"
"The Size Inclusive Training Academy should be a required continuing education course for ALL fitness professionals: trainers, instructors, coaches, and managers. Weight stigma, disordered eating and exercise behaviors, and upholding diet culture can either start with fitness professionals and trickle down to our clients and members or it can stop with us. This course provides both scientific and practical information to help break the cycle of shame and stigma in fitness spaces and create a more inclusive environment for all."
"No matter your starting point or lived experiences - this course will support a wider view and extra considerations. A really comprehensive course that was highly practical and relevant to a range of fitness specialisms. Connecting, sharing experiences, ideas and solutions with like minded persons was a huge bonus of an already amazing course syllabus."
“More knowledge and training about size inclusivity is so desperately needed in the fitness industry right now, so I was beyond excited to be able to take part in such a fantastic workshop. Not only was I further educated on the importance of size inclusivity in fitness spaces, I was also given tools so I can implement these practices in my own fitness business to ensure all of my clients are given the service and attention they deserve. I will be recommending this course to all of my fitness industry colleagues!”
“This course is something I think all Fitness Professionals should take. Although there is a positive change happening in the industry, far too many training courses out there are behind the times when it comes to including size inclusiveness as part of their curriculum. Louise was fantastic at covering all areas of this subject and helping to pave the way towards a more inclusive environment in the fitness industry. Take this course, you will not be disappointed as Louise ensures all your questions are answered and you feel well equipped to help make the necessary changes the industry so desperately needs.”
“As a plus size trainer I am so grateful this training exists. I believe it should be an essential part of any fitness instructor, health coach, or personal trainer certification program. I’ve been so frustrated for years that many of the tools for marketing and programming were full of toxic fitness and diet culture messaging. I’ve had to create so many things like intake forms, exercise guides, and marketing from scratch because none of it had the message that fitness is for EVERYBODY. With this training I got a deeper education about the need for size inclusive fitness experiences. I’ve now got access to resources and part of a wonderful community of fitness pros. I no longer feel like I’m alone in believing that everyone should have access to fitness programs that don’t trigger them. I’m so excited about what comes next for my clients.”
“Louise Green's Size-Inclusive Fitness Certification course is ESSENTIAL for all fitness professionals. As inclusivity is becoming the norm, coaches and trainers need to receive the information provided in this course so they can not only expand their offerings to clients and increase revenue, but also provide welcoming spaces for clients in larger bodies. As a running coach in a larger body myself, I was able to see myself in so much of Louise's curriculum, and it validated my own practices, as well. Highly recommended for all fitness professionals.”
“In order to get the full benefit from this course you have to come into it with an open mind and a level of vulnerability, and Louise makes it easy to do this in front of a group of people you've never met. Not only do you get the expertise of Louise, but everyone in the group, which made this an enriching experience, as we covered a range of topics with the ultimate goal of transforming the fitness industry to one that is authentic and inclusive. Even if you think you know all there is to know about size-inclusion in this industry, you don't. Take this course.”

" I think every trainer, gym owner, studio should have to take this training. It was wildly informative and the information was inclusionary for all levels of knowledge. Something for everyone"
“I enjoyed this course very much...especially the discussions and the marketing part was helpful for me and I will try and implement all the good stuff in my online size inclusive movement business.”
“This has to be one of the best trainings around and should be a mandatory portion of any fitness professional's training.”

“As a larger bodied fitness trainer, this course really helped me to overcome the "imposter syndrome" that came from being in an industry that so heavily focuses on weight loss, looks, dieting, etc. It gave me a voice for the under-represented majority of people in this world, and also gave me the support and knowledge to take my business and present it in a way that will help those of us that were made to feel invisible, unwanted and just not enough. It was so refreshing to be in a group of other fitness professionals either in my same position, or wanting to understand our lived experiences with the fitness industry and made me hopeful that people like Louise Green and others are starting to chip away at the unrealistic standards of fitness that have pervaded our society for decades. I'm thankful to also be a part of that change with more backing, because I know I'm not alone.”
"This course was very helpful and thought provoking. There are so many beliefs promoted by society about larger bodied individuals that we don't even realize. My focus as a trainer has always been to make fitness as accessible and approachable as possible, so everyone can feel successful, and this course has helped to give me the tools to do that."
"As a relatively new trainer with a goal to work with clients of any age, size, or ability, I knew that the knowledge I gained during my SITA certification would not only benefit my future clients, but also me as a trainer in a larger body. I am so excited to be able to offer movement modifications and to provide an experience presented without weight bias."
"This course was incredibly helpful in reinforcing my own experiences with anti-fat bias while also helping me to visualize a path for my business as a large bodied trainer, working with large bodied clients. The passion Louise Green has for this subject is infectious. After completing this course, I am more excited than ever to be a part of this community of size inclusive professionals!"

"This should be a requirement for ALL fitness professionals. We have a precious opportunity to make a positive impact on someone's life but it is essential that we look at our industry, and indeed our own selves, with a critical eye."
"As a trainer who has come face to face with my own internalized fatphobia and who has also experienced weight bias in the fitness industry as my body has become larger while in ED recovery, I can honestly say, this is a course every fitness professional needs to take. Until a trainer unpacks their own beliefs, habits and approaches to their own body, they can't truly be a positive influence for their client. Most trainers are just passing down weight stigma and diet culture. This course will help change that mindset. If you want to be a well-rounded, positive influence to all people who enter your facility, regardless of their size... this course is a must."
"I highly recommend the SITA course for fitness instructors, studio & gym owners. The course is important education for everyone in the industry. Instructors , trainers, coaches will deepen their practice and gain a greater understanding of how change is necessary in the fitness industry, and how to make their own business more inclusive. The workshop offers continuing education credits, and is completed in a timely way. I was able to take the course with Louise, and she is authentic, fun with a wealth of information to share."
“This course was awesome! Louise presented the material in an easy-to-understand format that encouraged comprehension and dialogue between all of the participants. The break-out session and case-studies helped to dive deeper into the inclusivity of real-world clients. This course is a must for anyone wanting to enhance/expand their knowledge of size-inclusivity in their fitness realm.”
“Louise created a welcoming learning environment where she shared extensive knowledge on size inclusivity in fitness spaces. She provided lots of material and the learning will go on long after this workshop. I can see quick takeaways that I will implement tomorrow, as well as changes I will be developing over time. I appreciate her honesty, openness, and authenticity. I will be recommending this training to other fitness professionals”
