This groundbreaking course serves the unaddressed needs and concerns of women in the male-driven industries of Health & Fitness. In Holistic Health and Performance for Women you will discover the often ignored differences between men and women, and learn how to assess, design programs, train, and coach women to incredible success based on these crucial differences.


What you get with Holistic Health and Performace for Women

Women are experiencing burnout at alarming higher rates. They experience delayed healthcare, more chronic pain and depression than men, and women account for nearly 80% of all autoimmune diagnoses.

In this program you will learn how women are incredibly different from men on a Physiological, Musculoskeletal, Limbic, Somatic, and Biochemical level. You’ll even learn about cellular variations in every system of the body. This course is the first of its kind to outline the essential variations that set women apart while teaching you how to account for them in a successful program.

Adapt her training to her cycle

We know that exercise training and diet affects women differently across changes in her cycle, yet women only account for less than 3% of all exercise science research. In Holistic Health and Performance for Women Sara Gustafson walks you through each week of a woman’s cycle, outlining every chemical shift and how they affect women mentay, emotionally, physically and spiritually. This is essential information to create the right training, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications.

Attune to the power of the feminine

By understanding women’s different voices, expressions and realities, you will know how to recognize their human experience and those experiences manifest in their stress, habits and lifestyle choices – all crucial information to building programs designed specifically for women.

Holistic Health and Performance for Women was developed by Sara Gustafson and is based on the work of Paul Chek as well as over 10 years of research into women’s health, nutrition and exercise science.

Everything I Needed And More

i've always been interesting in this type of lifestyle, well just health and fitness in general, also help from following those on instagram that embody a similar style, living this kind of way for the last 2 years. i thought i knew a lot, but this course has just sparked a fire under me, the content and structure that this course has delivered has gone beyond my expectations and absorbs into my brain like a sponge. I thought i knew a lot but boyy was i wrong. This course is just the tip of the iceberg and im looking forward to HLC level 2. if you're really looking to up your knowledge and wisdom with Holistic Lifestyle, or even looking to get into the game, this is definitely the place to be, and to be taught by IMO the godfather of health and movement is an experience worth having. Don't go cheap on your body, and don't go cheap on a qualification either... Much love to Paul and the team, would love to get in touch some time :)

HLC 1 online - great!

A very unique course. Representation was clear and on-point. I dont know if finding clients for this could be a problem in my country, I'll see about that.

Scientific Back training

Great course and other prerequisite for IMS1! Paul in this course shows his holistic approach to back pain. He explains how its not only about exercise but how important are breathing, mastication, visual and vestibular system and many other things. Except that he shows you a lot of his assesment techniques and a a lot of exercises from rehabilitation exercises to basic lifts like a squat or deadlift.

David Emsden

Very clear and well structured course. A thorough explanation that links through to practical applications that can be utilised with clients.

Program Design 2nd edition

In my opinion this is the best of three prerequisites for IMS 1. No matter if you are beginner trainer or if I you have already gained some experience in the field I believe you will get some enriching knowledge for you. Paul explains here some basic professional terms and gives you detailed description a using of tempo, rest period, loading, periodization and much more.
