Great program!
This is a great program that is written is such a way that everyone can understand it. I liked it because it was not "dumbed down" but it was not intense science talk either. It also gives you very detailed descriptions on several types of group exercise classes with detailed outlines of what to include in your class. I personally did not want to take the time to watch all of the videos, so I simply downloaded the PDF, and I was on my way to passing the certification! I would definitely recommend this program!

Great program
The study materials provided were excellent--both the book and the videos. I have a fairly extensive health, nutrition, and fitness background and I still learned a lot from this training and certification.
