• Jennifer (ACE Certified Professional) 5/5/2020 12:03 PM "I'm calling this course the 'Missing Link'...I wish I would have found this practical, hands-on information a LONG time ago. I 100% recommend this course to anyone looking for a better understanding of how the body works and how everything is connected." • Amy (ACE Certified Professional) 1/10/2020 8:38 AM "I am actually blown away with the course. It’s not dry and boring (which I have found other courses to be when learning about anatomy) and I’m thoroughly enjoying it! I have learned so much already just from the first module. I can’t wait to finish the course and I feel like this was the missing link for me to feel much more confident and knowledgeable as a fitness professional." • Mary (ACE Certified Professional) 8/9/2019 1:36 PM "Thank you for this training. I know I will be able to use this information and practice with my own clientele. I felt the information was presented in an organized form, detailed and clear. I was able to understand the concepts presented, and especially liked the hands-on video of each lesson. It was so helpful in understanding not only the information, but then the hows of assessing my own clients. I felt the assessment order made sense. I have already been more aware of clients' alignment, from their feet to their head, and mine as well!!" • Ann (ACE Certified Professional) 8/7/2019 2:46 PM "Extremely thorough and well structured videos." • Gordon W. (ACE Certified Professional) 7/28/2019 8:06 PM "Course was fantastic, easy to learn and lots of great info. Gave me lots of confidence. Thanks so much." • Lavera (ACE Certified Professional) 6/29/2019 8:50 AM "Great information that you won’t easily find elsewhere! I learned things from this course that my physical therapist didn’t even know about. I’m looking forward to taking the next course in the series, definitely worth it." • Chad (ACE Certified Professional) 5/28/2019 5:13 AM "I really enjoyed this course and know the information from this module and the following modules will be extremely helpful for my clients and I. This course was very informative and greatly extrapolated on my knowledge of assessing the human body for faulty movement patterns. I can’t wait to take the other courses!"
