Very practical advice and valuable insight from all hosts.

Easy to follow and multiple speakers gave varied perspectives!

The technology tips were super helpful! I am working on continued education for my Personal Training re-cert right now. I run an online fitness coaching business and use Trainerize for programming/demo videos, and I also just started teaching live virtual shuffle dance classes. The tips are applicable for the classes! Thank you ACE!
