    This course greatly exceeded my expectations. I've been teaching group X for about 8 years and was surprised by how much I still was able to learn. The best part was all the practical, specific explanations. This should be a mandatory lecture for all ACE GFIs! It was clearly laid out in a great format as well.

    Instructor is very engaging and entertaining. Maybe more visual examples in a class setting, instead of just speaking the whole time. He was great though. Great info.

    Very informative while keeping the clients attention. Did not stray from the planned overview. At 30-yrs experience, this was a very good refresher course.

    This was the first online CEC I have done and it was so refreshing to rehear all this vocabulary and learn new things. The host was great and uplifting, the video was succinct, and the quiz was totally stress free. Thanks for these! I look forward to more!

    Very good pointers for the group exercise instructor. It is useful hints and tips and I will definitely improve the way how i teach a class after this course

    Great reminders for Group Training. Super framing of our purpose as trainers, and of our relationship to our clients. Appropriate for GFIs of small and large groups in all formats. I love the instructor, and my only complaint is that when addressing multi-level classes he refers to the range of participants as "moms to athletes." Really? Other than a couple athletes, my strongest and hardest working clients are 40 year old moms, and some of them are athletes too. Maybe better, and more encompassing to say, "those new to exercise to athletes at peak performance." ... just a little bee in my bonnet.

    Great course for new instructors, or as a refresher. Lawrence Biscontini is great -- embodies the attitudes and information he is trying to teach. Thank you for making this available free of charge!

    Loved the instructor's enthusiasm, genuineness and clear explanations. This class went beyond the obvious and exceeded my expectations. It has really helped me with the water aerobics class I lead.

    It was simple to understand and to the point. He gave examples without going overboard and making it confusing. Very good for the instructor who is just starting and good as a refresher and reminder for the instructor that has been around for longer and may have forgotten some things.

    love it

    The instructor was very personal and conversational. The course felt laid-back, but very beneficial. The content was presented clearly and effectively. The questions on the quiz did not always reflect the exact order in the course, but were logical and simple to figure out (given that you paid attention during the course). The instructor modeled what he preached. This was a great course -- thank you so much. Keep up the great work!

    This course was very well put together and very informative. I'm going to be starting a fitness class next month for seniors and the knowledge I've gained, I will use it. Thank you.
