Calling all women who need a simple and FREE strength training plan that they can do from the comfort of their own home so they can feel confident and super strong in as little as a few weeks. 


Beginner's Home Strength Training Plan

Start your strength training journey with this super simple 8 week beginner's plan so you can start to gain more energy, stress less and lose weight from the comfort of your own home.




Here’s the part where I get brutally honest and lay down some truth talk on teacher health and wellbeing.


The online teacher health and wellbeing space is unbelievably noisy at the moment.

Our feeds are full of inspirational quotes, burnout prevention and teacher self care practices that no teacher actually has time for; misleading, contradicting and intrusive sponsored ads, fitness "transformation" social media posts, marketing emails and "proven" workout and diet plans and strategies...

As a result teachers are drowning in information overload left feeling more overwhelmed and confused than ever!

Many of you are desperately trying to cut through the noise and figure out where the heck to start on your weight loss, health and/or fitness goals (Hint: the answer doesn't lie in you doing more time consuming, injury causing cardio).

All while knowing there has never been a more critical time to pay attention to your physical and mental health.

You're living proof that when a teacher's energy needs are neglected, it can result in a reduction in focus and performance. It can easily lead to burnout, obesity and a subsequent risk of mental and physical health issues including but not limited to chronic stress, depression, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

You're at your wits' end: you're exhausted, stressed, sore and simply CANNOT go on pouring from an empty cup!



I'm giving away this comprehensive training program completely FREE so you can feel stronger and more confident from home in only 8 weeks. 

Learn the life changing impact that strength training has in relation to your energy, stress and weight loss goals, especially if you're a busy teacher.


My name is Susan Rennie aka The Sculpting Susan and founder of Teacher Strong Academy, the online training program exclusively for teachers.

As a high school teacher turned fitness instructor and nutrition coach, my mission is to demystify health and fitness for teachers just like you!

I want you to become physically and mentally stronger so you can have more energy, stress less and become a more resilient practitioner. Most importantly, I want for you to have the energy to teach AND have a life outside the classroom. One filled with joy, health and longevity so you don't have to wait until you retire before you have the time to focus on your health.

I've been a teacher for over 15 years, with over 6 years experience as a classroom teacher. I lost over 7 inches from my waist, gained a ton of energy, reduced chronic inflammation and reduced my insulin resistance, all whilst teaching full time.

This isn't about me (but you deserve to see proof so you know you're in great hands).

This is about those of you who are resistant to take action because you're stuck in overwhelm and you can't figure out how to filter through all the noise your well meaning colleagues and the online health and fitness industry is throwing at you.

Leaving you lost, ambivalent and scrolling for help.

This is about those of you who have spent years trying to lose weight and somehow always end up sabotaging your efforts.

This FREE strength training plan is for you if you need help to kickstart your strength training journey so you can start to gain energy, reduce stress, and lose weight more sustainably, all without restrictive meal plans or spending hours doing cardio (you don’t have the time for that, right?)

This FREE strength training plan is for you even if it’s been a long time since you’ve done any exercise, haven't squatted in your puff, or even if you think you’re “too old for all that!”

This FREE plan is especially for you if you like (no - LOVE) food and no longer want to feel guilty about the amount you’re consuming (You'll be building muscle on this program, and muscle NEEDS food to stay alive - amazing, right! Makes you wonder why you haven't been strength training all this time!)

This plan is also for you if...

You're done with not seeing results by doing endless, injury causing cardio


You're looking for a structured, simple training program that you can easily complete from home starting with nothing but your own bodyweight

Losing weight, gaining strength and starting to sculpt a body I loved.. I spent time and thousands of pounds learning how to do this using a proven road map.

Adopting the mindset and discipline to maintain my weight loss and energy levels under the constant demands of teacher workload stress and through various life changes... that one I had to painstakingly figure out on my own, I didn't have a roadmap that specifically applied to the life of an overworked teacher.

Jennifer Wallace, 29, MD

“I didn't lose much weight but I lost a whopping 3 INCHES from my waist with this free program and I'm no longer a slave to the scales. I can actually feel my muscles under my skin and I feel stronger and more capable than I have my entire adult life. Best of all, when I look in the mirror, I feel strong, I feel amazing inside and out. This is just the beginning for me!"
