Back Injury Rating

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  

My intent for taking the Back Injury Prevention Specialist Course was to expand my knowledge to help others. The Course exceeded my initial expectations because I learned a lot about some issues I was having with my back over the years. I feel that I can teach with more confidence to others because I was able to personally benefit from the information gained through this course. I aim to reduce as much risk as possible while focusing on injury prevention for the client during workouts  and also in preparation and recovery stages of exercise. The Back Injury Prevention Specialist Course brought a lot of ‘other’ knowledge together for me to understand the ‘big picture’ or holistic view of a healthy lifestyle.  James Caslin, AFPA 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. (Cervical, Thoracic or lumbar). I feel that this course did its job wonderfully.  I will use the information I have learned with my clients and give them relief based on what their diagnosis is from a doctor. 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. I am a very busy man with priorities at work, school and at home, however I was able to get my studying in when I had time and on my schedule. This was a great course!  Justin Cochrane, ISSA Certified Professional
