Attention Female Fitness Enthusiasts and Professionals…

FINALLY! A Fitness Summit FOR WOMEN ONLY, PRESENTED BY WOMEN ONLY. Covering the Critical Exercise & Nutrition Topics Women Need to Know & Understand to Build and Protect their Strong, Fit & Fabulous Female Bodies for Life! Introducing the FIRST & ONLY Women’s Fitness Summit…

Dear Female Friends,

My name is Dr. Cassandra Forsythe, and while I’m no man-hater (I appreciate and love my fellow male fitness enthusiasts and professionals 😉 ), I have long hated the fact that women and women’s topics are greatly under-represented in the fitness industry.

As a Registered Dietitian (RD) and a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) I have been seriously studying and practicing nutrition and fitness for 15 years now. I’ve had the pleasure of authoring 2 best-selling books, The New Rules of Lifting for Women and Women’s Health Perfect Body Diet, and am a fitness advisor for Women’s Health magazine. I also have spoke at over 30 fitness and nutrition conferences on topics related to women (and I was almost always the only woman presenter there…).

I’m not sharing these credentials and accomplishments to impress you in any way. Rather, I want to impress upon you that I have been heavily involved in the fitness industry with and around some pretty “big players.”

And, in all that time, with all those experiences, and around all those great people and publications I have yet to see an opportunity for women to get together to learn about and discuss topics that are important and relevant to them.

Sure, there has been a topic for women here and there at various conferences, but it’s always just that – a topic; just one stinkin’ hour in a whole one- or two-day event. I know because so many times I’ve been that one lone female presenter covering that one topic SPECIFIC FOR WOMEN.

And, guess what?

EVERY SINGLE TIME I present at a fitness conference, whether it be geared towards fitness professionals or fitness enthusiasts, women rush the stage afterwards to THANK me for covering a topic that’s truly important to them and for being a voice for women in fitness.

We are partnering with Girls Gone Strong for this year’s Women’s Fitness Summit. Girls Gone Strong is the The Women’s Fitness Authority and also designed by women for women. Many of your favorite ladies from Girls Gone Strong will be in attendance at the event and it’s your opportunity to hang out, ask questions, socialize and have a great time with other women passionate about fitness.

EVERY WOMAN IN ATTENDANCE will receive their own copy of The Modern Woman’s Guide. Each attendee gets the Gold Package along with the Modern Woman’s Guide to Good Meal Plans. Together the products are a $140 value. And by attending The Women’s Fitness Summit, you receive it with your registration!

Building a Network of Female Fitness Experts

Now, the good news to attending and speaking at all these conferences is that I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friends with some truly amazing women – true experts in their craft.

I’ve watched these women break through the industry barriers and step out as leaders for women who want to know the truth about what works and what doesn’t, and how their bodies ARE different than men’s bodies.

These amazing women have been an inspiration to women all over the world teaching them how to exercise, how to eat, and even how to THINK as women working hard to get fit.

A Wild Idea… Just For Women!

I recently attended and presented at The Fitness Summit this year, another outstanding conference, but once again women presenters and women’s specific topics were, in my opinion, under-represented. I must say though, the event was outstanding and the speakers were top notch…

Anyway, something in me finally clicked… I decided IT IS TIME…

It’s time for an event featuring the best woman presenters covering the women’s fitness topic that women want and need to know about. Topics like:

  • Athletic Amenorrhea (losing your period)
  • Urinary Incontinence (no, you shouldn’t pee your pants when you exercise)
  • Specific Training Needs and Wants of Women
  • How to Train and Inspire Your Female Clients Correctly
  • Pregnancy Training
  • Exercise and Training for Menopause
  • Influence of the Menstrual Cycle on Exercise & Nutrition
  • Training Requirements of Female Endurance Athletes
  • And more…

But, how would I pull this off?

I mean, researching and developing a presentation for women and speaking about it is no big deal to me. Heck, I’ve written books, published papers, and have spoken at dozens events on women’s fitness topics. But, hosting an entire summit devoted entirely to women… That’s another level entirely!

That’s What Friends Are For 🙂

Then it hit me…

I’ve made some wonderful friends with some of the top women in the industry. There’s no need to overcomplicate this…

Pick a Weekend.

Friday, September 26 – Sunday, September, 28

  • Friday Night Social
  • Saturday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. group dinner that evening

Invite Women Who Want What We Want…

The CrossFit Expert Conference

A CrossFit and fitness conference that is exclusively for women presented by women who can talk the talk and walk the walk


Ask the experts anything that you wish. There’s no such thing as a silly question.  For example, many ladies ask us what CrossFit shoes are better for women but the actual fact is most CrossFit training shoes are suitable for women.

If you want to spend a weekend with a group of like-minded women learning the truth about women’s fitness and how to:

  • Exercise To Be Strong, Sexy And EMPOWERED
  • Prevent Period Loss As You Get Leaner
  • Manage Hormones
  • Avoid/Reverse Metabolic Damage
  • Choose and Perform The Best Exercises For Women
  • Learn How to Inspire Other Women to be Fit AND Healthy for Life!
  • Learn what the crossfit benefits for women are
  • And Much More…

Then, you must attend!

PLUS, you’ll have a unique opportunity to network with fellow women fitness enthusiasts, professionals and experts, including key members of Girls Gone Strong. One of the best parts about attending live events is the people you meet, the friends you make, and the connections you can benefit from for the rest of your life. That’s how I met each of the speakers at The Women’s Fitness Summit. Now you can, too!

Why Women MUST ATTEND The Women’s Fitness Summit…

The fact is, too many women are training and eating wrong!

They’re not following the right exercise or nutrition program for them. As a result, women are suffering from athletic amenorrhea in their quest to lose weight and get fit. They’re messing with their hormones, reproductive potential, and are possibly fast tracking themselves into menopause.

Most programs out there are made for men. Many of the “women’s programs” are too general and don’t dive into the deeper topics women need to know and understand.

Besides, it’s time for women to learn from and engage with WOMEN who have “been there and done that.” These women have made the mistakes themselves, learned from those mistakes, did the research and developed the programs “in the trenches” with themselves and their female clients.

Now, it’s your chance to learn from these wonderful women. Discover how to look, feel and perform at your very best without damaging your body or your mind – a big issue for women trying to get fit today. We women definitely struggle with self-image and self-worth more than men, especially since the fitness industry, Hollywood and the media often feel that women need to be “perfect” and view us as sex symbols. You’ll get a chance to find out how each of us has faced and overcome these issues, and learn how you can, too. J

The Women’s Fitness Summit is EXACTLY what we need to change and better the fitness industry for women. We’re finally giving women an opportunity to hear and learn from the women they look up to for their knowledge, credibility and experience in ONE unique event. Plus, you’ll get a copy of the Modern Woman’s Guide. Not only will you have an incredible weekend, but you get an incredible product as well.

I hope you can join us!
