Why does the world need Menopause Weight Loss Coaches?
Have you ever wondered why, when menopause arrives, the weight loss strategies we have been taught no longer seem to work?
It is well known that the menopause transition may result in adverse metabolic consequences in women, especially those women putting on weight. Given that cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in post-menopausal women, the importance of weight management in midlife cannot be overemphasized.
That’s why I have designed this essential course for any health or exercise professional working with midlife and older women.
Did you know, that women who have deep visceral fat, produce excess oestrogen in fat cells, that the liver then has to try to remove and that you can help this process through the correct exercise for liver function?
Did you know that the effect of skeleto-muscular changes cause the reduction and loss of mitochondrial activity during menopause, which reduces the ability of muscles to oxidise or ‘burn-fat’?
Did you know that sleep is affected by menopause hormonal changes, and if your clients aren’t sleeping, then weight loss is harder to achieve?
Knowledge about fat loss has traditionally been underpinned by physiology, nutrition and exercise prescription. But the unique hormonal environment during menopause changes everything. Our knowledge must now include behavioural, biological, social and environmental considerations specific to midlife and ageing.
That is why this course explores so much more than just hormonal physiology. You will come away with an understanding of the unique changes occurring in the liver, gut, brain and muscles that contribute to weight gain, as well as the scientifically-evidenced exercise and nutrition prescription for weight loss and muscle mass maintenance.
Which means you’re not only going to be able to help your clients lose weight, but you will see them turn around their energy, sore joints, mood and much more.

The MyMT™ Menopause Practitioner Course is a 12 week course, with dedicated intakes. This is because there is a live component to this course whereby you meet with Dr Wendy Sweet (PhD) fortnightly on a zoom call to review the modules.
This course dives deep into the science and physiology of menopause, menopause risk screening, and how to turn around your client’s disrupted sleep, hot flushes, sore joints, liver & gut health, energy, anxiety and more, through evidenced lifestyle solutions. There is also information on menopause supplements, behaviour change coaching and the business of menopause. ** This course does not include scientific information on menopause weight loss or exercise prescription (see below).
The MyMT™ Menopause Weight Loss Coach Course is a self learning, evergreen course which runs for 6 weeks. There is no live element so you can start it at any time and complete it at your own pace.
Research suggests that the menopausal transition period is strongly associated with weight gain, which in up to 70% of women, is now a known symptom. Through this course, you will come away with an understanding of the unique differences in women’s weight gain at this age and stage of life, and easy to implement, exercise and nutrition solutions for your clients.
The MyMT™ Menopause Health Coach Course is a 3-week introductory level course. The purpose of this course is to introduce Health and Wellness Coaches, or Health Professionals who want an entry-level course, to the physiology and psychology of menopause. You will learn evidenced, client-centered behaviour change strategies specific to this stage of life, to empower your clients to turn intention into action.
