Not only was the course very helpful, and I’ll be able to apply it to my clients, but the customer service was amazing. I did not get the email with my certificate because it went to my junk email account. I sent an email asking if it could be resent and Gina called me within 10 minutes with a response to my email. She stayed on the phone with me to make sure the credits were applied to my account and resent the completion certificate. I would absolutely recommend using GMP Fitness for CEC courses. 5 stars!!  Lisa, ACE Certified Professional

I have gained a vast amount of knowledge on the back and how certain injuries affect an individual. The way the course is set up it starts from the basics and slowly gets more complex so you have the tools to grasp the concept well. The main reason why I took this Back Injury Prevention Specialist course was to gain knowledge on back pain based on the region.

I will also be able to give ideas of what condition they actually have now based on my new knowledge. I really enjoyed the fact that there was no time limit on this test.
