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."

" 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.”
"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."
