027 | Being a Female Strength Coach in a Male Dominated Field

Let’s talk about how to find success as a female strength coach in an industry dominated by males shall we?

I lay it all out in episode 27 fam.

You might not like some of what I have to say. Maybe you will. Either way, this is JUST MY OPINION and speaking from MY EXPERIENCE. Everyone’s perspective will always be skewed by their experiences right? That is part of human nature.

With that said, I do sincerely hope you find the episode enlightening and encouraging.

For all my female strength coaches, I cover scenarios and topics like:

  • WHEN I realized this was indeed a male dominated field.
  • How what you wear DOES MATTER, why it matters, and what attire I suggest in a strength and conditioning setting.
  • How to not be seen as “one of the guys” rather for your value as a strength and conditioning coach, PERIOD. One who simply happens to be a female.
  • What to do when an athlete test the boundaries or your authority.
  • How and why I think a thick skin is something more women need in this field.
  • And why learning to take things with a grain of salt will serve you well as a female in this industry. AND how that does not mean that you have to take shit from ANYONE. Don’t get it twisted.

This might be my longest podcast yet. Partially because it is a controversial and touchy topic. I make clear that everyone’s experience is different; and that you are entitled to your opinions.

I just also encourage you take control and own your value in this space. Because you ARE valuable. Your cert doesn’t say “FEMALE Strength & Conditioning Specialist.” It just says, “Strength & Conditioning Specialist.”

I hope you enjoy this one. It was a fun one to record and a slightly terrifying one to put into the world. But here we are.

If you find value here, on The FitsPRO Podcast, then pretty please head over to itunes, subscribe, rate and review the show. It means the world to me when you spread my message to more humans.
