5_star The course materials were sent on time and the format was easy to follow. This is my second CEC course purchased through GMP Fitness and I am impressed by the convenience, ease of use, as well as the manageability of the lesson plans, which were important features for someone with a busy schedule! Gina at GMP handled my customer service issues promptly and was incredibly helpful to me in getting my CECs completed on time so that my certification remained current. I would recommend GMP Fitness courses to any fitness professional seeking to add relevant information to their repertoire of knowledge and to also fulfill certifying requirements. Five stars!!!.  Sherry Bonekat, ACE Certified Professional This course was very easy to follow, very easy to read, well put together, covered many topics I have not read before. I am SO happy to finally have things figured out and be on the road to training again!! 🙂  Great course—thanks! Bought some orthotics, started the strength/stretching recommendations… finally running strong again! Time to take on another ironman! Five stars!!!  Kristin Jorgensen, ACE Certified Professional Even though I have been participating in Triathlons since 1991 and completed the Lake Placid Ironman in 2005, this course filled in the blanks in various areas of training concepts, specificity of muscle stretching and strengthening. I volunteer at an annual kids week long triathlon camp and this material will greatly enhance the support that I will be contributing to that camp! Great course and I am looking forward to taking more of GMP Fitness courses!
