  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I enjoyed studying for this test. The materials covered everything that was asked on the test. The study materials went beyond information on running and injury prevention. It helped to refresh my memory on heart rate, nutrition and training tips. Good reading even if you were not taking the test.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I am a marathon runner and run camp coach, so it gave me a wealth of knowledge to pass on to my runners! Thank you! Teaching my runners how to prevent injury and how to treat them. Very easily followed.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I love this course. I know lots of runners and think that the information in this course is very informational in order to keep them running (pain free/injury free/or at least not to get as injured). It’s definitely worth a read as it’s very well thought out, organized, and researched.

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Nice Job! I appreciate the cerebral nature and technical nature of the course.

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    It will help me run injury free (and continue running), and advise others on how to do that. At times, I forgot I was even studying as this material was so interesting.

  6. Rated 5 out of 5

    Very informative. I can use all the information I learned in other areas of training outside of just running. This was one of the better studies that I have done. A total new perspective for me.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great information on running, I loved it. I gained knowledge on proper form for running. I’ve already been using the techniques in the book to help some of my clients.

    Great Course. I love GMP fitness. The process was also easy to make sure I was getting what I needed to earn my CEU credits.

  9. Rated 5 out of 5

    It’s worth buying. I’ve improved my running and I have gained important tips for my clients.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5
