CIMSPA have awarded the Menopause Movement certificated menopause training course for fitness coaches, the highest rating of '3-star-rated enhanced provider'.


Menopause Movement are CIMSPA quality assured enhanced education providers!

We know from member-feedback that CPD and certification matters. It matters to us too! We share our own CIMSPA endorsement journey below and encourage individuals to think about embarking on their own journey.

In the last year Menopause Movement have entered Training Provider Partnership with CIMSPA, The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity, the UK’s professional development body for the sport and physical activity sector, backed by Sport England and the UK government.  

CIMSPA represents a wide range of professionals working in the sport and physical activity sector, from sole trader fitness instructors to leisure and gym sector CEOs. Their commitment to nurturing talent, developing careers, and inspiring professionalism fits perfectly with our values.

After going through CIMSPA’s lengthy endorsement process, the Menopause Movement course was awarded 4 CPD points. At the end of 2023, we then took part in a further rigorous quality assurance program, which resulted in an invitation to apply for 'enhanced provider' status. This designation is awarded to providers who have demonstrated good practice and are recognised for offering high-quality education to learners/participants by CIMSPA. Recently, we achieved the highest rating of '3-star-rated enhanced provider' which we’ll be happily shouting about wherever we get the chance!

We have no hesitation in recommending CIMSPA membership to individuals working in the sector.
