“The Weight Loss Specialist course was extremely thorough. The layout and delivery of the material was easy enough for the average individual with no health and/or fitness background to understand. I really appreciate the various approaches to deal with clients who have comorbidities as the suggestions are very gentle and non-threatening. I feel much better equipped to deal with that population of individuals as my niche was typically middle-aged women and the youth. I highly recommend this course!”– Dee-Dee D, FL

“The WLS course was incredibly engaging. I actually couldn’t put it down. There’s a lot of specific content not covered in the CPT textbooks such as routine programming, nutrition calculations, and all the possible scenarios for obstacles are covered. It is thorough in regards to the general public and fat loss strategies. It could be a bit more sport specific at times, but then the facts remain the same- it’s energy in vs. energy out.– Tom, CT
