Top quality professional training. I am very impressed with the instruction, presentation, and information. I learned so much from this program and can’t wait to incorporate it into my fitness plan! I am very thankful for the knowledge you share in an easy to understand format. Thank you for a wonderful addition to my training program. I will analyze each client’s posture and then incorporate the correct exercises into their fitness program. I learned some excellent techniques and exercises to share with my clients. After evaluating my own posture, I now have some exercises to practice to help improve my rotated hip. The DVD and CD-Rom are very professional and well done. They are chock full of great information!  Joanna Parsons, WITS Certified Professional

I’ve learned simple, basic, yet thorough postural assessments and corrections for common deviations that will hinder someone maximizing their health and fitness. I’ll use it to assess and spot postural deviations, then recommend the exercises that will correct them as part of an overall health/fitness program. It was easy to follow, clear in its instruction, and thorough in the processes that it recommends.  Korey Samuelson, ACE Certified Professional

The best part of this course was that the instructor provides a whole series of exercises for each of 4 specific posture challenges. This will be incredibly useful in helping individual clients feel more confident and pain-free!.  Sarah R Sutton, ACE Certified Professional
