i know that most of the information applies, but I take measure with the fact the manual was published in 2005. With the progress the Sports Science and medical field has made since the information was compiled, I feel what was presented is inadequate.

This is a good overall course to learn proper considerations and training techniques to avoid and recuperate from injury.

Not up to date with current research. One area in particular was stretching.

It is very important for trainers to be able to try and keep people active while not causing injury. The key to this is to identify weak links and problem areas, which the program does a good job of covering. Well structured, DVD is not too long but covers the main items as a good review and more in-depth look at the system, and the test was representative of the material.

Course was a bit outdated interns of diet and some of the exercises. Also, the DVD is Windows only - I am unable to view it. It should state that someplace before purchase or test questions specific to the DVD should be taken off of the test.

I liked this course. The "Framework" book is very helpful from a practical, hands-on standpoint. I plan to incorporate a good bit of it into my everyday work with clients.

This book is written for the lay person and has so much cutsie fluff and back stories it's time consuming to filter through it to find the real information if you don't have hours and hours to read through all of it. Best part is in the very back.

Would be nice to see ALL the answers when going back to see the incorrect ones. I did go out and then go back in to find them but it would be nice to see them right away at the end of the quiz

This course is a practical, no nonsense approach to dealing with real people in today's fitness world. I look forward to using the results of my own self test to adapt my workouts for my aging, active body.

Excellent read. The information is presented in an easy to understand manner, and there is much explanation on how to apply the advice in real life. Loved the course.

The information was well written and presented. As a massage therapist, I already knew much of the information but applying it as a personal trainer was extremely helpful!

The book was great - medical student I appreciated the scientific basis of all of the recommendations and the current research. My only qualm is that it hasn't been updated since 2005, so a few of the recommendations are out of date. The only reason I'm giving 4 out of 5 stars is that the DVD was boring and it is difficult to jump to particular areas of interest using it. If I could use the main menu to choose the injury/ailment for which I wanted extra information, it would be a much more useful tool.

A waste of my time and money. Very vague, no in depth teaching. A book for extreme beginners.

It helped me have a better understanding of what I learn to get my CPT.
