  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I can apply the content of this continuing education course to all the personal training, pilates and group fitness classes I teach. The course was very good. On line training is very convenient.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great course, I’m very glad I purchased it. This will help solidify older concepts I learned years ago as well inspire me to try basic movements that I may have forgotten about or ignored for awhile.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Any Trainer will tell you how important core work is, you can never learn to much about it. Individuals use core throughout the day whether its sitting or standing. Lots of good exercises and progressions. Thorough progressions and lots of new cool exercises to add in to any regimen easy to follow and learn, great pics for visual.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Good description of the importance of Core Training, the various exercises a well as a good description of the muscle groups. There are a wide range of other courses I would like to take in the future from GMP Fitness. I enjoyed seeing the variety of resources available through this program.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    This was a very informative course. It was a great addition to the Pilates certification and lower body ball program I already completed. I look forward to implementing what I have learned into my group fitness routine, personal training sessions and in my own workout routines. I love that everything is now on disc and no more books to flip through and try to bookmark.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    A refresher course for me. Mostly going over all the muscles. I will use when instructing. Making sure that correct posture is used in all exercise.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    This course gave me some new insights on warm up, conditioning exercises. I am very excited to integrate this routine into my life as well as into my client training plans. Core stability is so important and I think this course provided many cues and exercises I can use. Great course!

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    Really liked the different levels of each exercise. Gave me some new exercises to use with clients. Was easy to follow and liked that you could print out the slides.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    A better understanding of core Training. I have many elderly and physically unstable people at my fitness center. I will be using these principles to get their core stronger before I progress with them in their training. My certification is with NCCPT. I was given your company as a source for continuing education for my certification renewal.
