  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I gained a better appreciation for the importance of incorporating flexibility exercises into an overall health and conditioning plan. I will first utilize some of the exercises and concepts myself as a relatively healthy, but aging baby boomer. Excellent course. Thanks!

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Familiar with lots of stretches already, but lots of great new stretches involving the stability ball I wasn’t aware of/unfamiliar with. Will be great to add into warmups and cool downs. Stretching and flexibility plays a key role in posture and life. It is very common for trainers to over look flexibility and stretching and that mistake can increases clients risk of injury. Another Great Course by GMP, looking forward to going through this material over and over to get more familiar with stretches and getting better at what I do. Thanks GMP.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I appreciate having 3 routines, from beginner through advanced, identified in the course, as well as the charts I can use to track participant performance. Extremely helpful! I have many cancer survivors who are dealing with cancer related fatigue. They need to be active, but structured exercises are too much when they are fatigued. The stretching programs are ideal for them. Very clear DVD instructions.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have learned new techniques to help clients stretch safely and effectively using the G Ball. I will use the techniques I learned. I will also use them in my own training. I am so glad that GMP creates these effective, helpful online courses.

    I would recommend this course to anyone. The material is easy to follow and thorough. I was very impressed with the customer service when I had problems trouble shooting with my computer. Thank you, Gina, for all your help!!!

    It provides me with further insight to proper form with stretching. The importance to maintaining flexibility and provide quality movement combined with stretching. The client assessment sheets are of industry standards and become a useful tool for me to use to gage the progress of my clients. Range of motion is necessary at any age however, as the body ages the range becomes less because the stretching becomes more uncomfortable for the aging client. Thus the decline in movement comes into play. By providing our clients with easy and non threatening stretching and movement to incorporate stretching the client feels confident and is more willing to not only stretching during their sessions with me, but I can provide them an at home stretching routine they can do comfortably on their own. This then in turn allows me to go back to their assessment sheets to show them their continued progress in their stretching and range of motion. I have always focused on mobility first then they can enhance their movement.

  8. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have returned to GMP Fitness programs over two CEU time periods, I like the direct delivery of the training. All clients need to keep a well rounded training program and the stability /G Ball is a grrrrreat way to cross train. Thank you for putting together these excellent programs.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    As with all GMP courses, it improved my knowledge and gave me many more avenues in which to teach and train. As a personal trainer and a fitness instructor I can apply what I learned to create better classes and a broader scope of the body for my students and clients very applicable to my senior clientele from 50 up! Enjoyed taking this course as I always enjoy learning and the information was concise and well designed.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5

    Seems as though it’s much better to stretch with a G Ball. Stretching is extremely important for better joint mobility. I will apply by showing each and every client will be shown at least 23 new G Ball stretches for each training session. Appreciate all the pics and easy to understand demo pics/videos.
