Understanding the LGBTQ+ fitness client – 0.3 ACE CEC

Course description

This course was created for fitness professionals who either expect to work with or already have LGBTQ+ clients, or who simply want to know more about LGBTQ+ people. Those fitness professionals who are not LGBTQ+ may feel unfamiliar with some of the language used and may also have misconceptions about LGBTQ+ people. On the other hand, those fitness professionals who are LGBTQ+ may want to use this course as a reference in their professional lives.

The goal of this course is to give fitness professionals a good starting place for creating more welcoming and inclusive fitness environments. While this course was specifically developed focusing on issues related to working with the LGBTQ+ client, the overarching theme is that we are all different and we have to respect each other’s differences and boundaries in order to create a warm and welcoming space in fitness. By the end of the course, we will see one theme emerge: people come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and we as fitness professionals have to understand how to work with clients who are different from us.

Course Objectives

  • Understand the importance of pronouns while working with LBGTQ+ clients

Understanding addiction in fitness – 1.1 ACE CEC

This course is aimed to offer fitness professionals an understanding of addiction related to health and fitness. The course presents the most up-to-date knowledge to help you provide the best services to your clients: not only to those clients who have fitness and health-related addictions, but also to those who struggle with establishing a healthy image about themselves.

  • The nature of addictions (to substances and behaviors), eating disorders, and muscle dysmorphia
