    Besides the manual being very informative the videos were not helpful. They were only the intro of the course and didn't show any exercises. It seemed as if there should have been more than 6 videos for this course so maybe I missed some videos when I took it. The only video it even showed the machine was how to set-up and tear down.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you Rachelle for your feedback.  An ACE staff member will reach out to you soon.

    I hated the videos and the reading was much too long. I won't use this knowledge at all in the field. I wish I would have chosen any of the other trainings.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you for your feedback Kendra, an ACE staff member will contact you soon.

    I purchased this course using my e-creds'. I thought it was going to be a course on training clients in a gym setting. How confusing! What a waste of my time and money.

    It was an informative course however it would be great for ACE to come up with a CEC course geared to each specific machine so that it can be more specific to each users needs.
