    While the course information continues to be relevant, I was surprised by the copyright year on the text of 2004 and how outdated the video is. The instructor was not in time with the music at many points during her sample class, too. It was not what I was expecting in these ways. For someone like me who is seeking re-certification, there wasn't anything new per se although there were some good reminders throughout. Thank you.


    ACE RESPONSE:  Thank you Heather for your feedback.  An ACE representative will be in contact with you shortly.

    Although the video is excellent, it does not cover most of the test material, it is mostly all from the book. In addition, while taking the test, if you skip a question and arrow back, you will lose all of your answers in between and if you do not remember your answer, you have to research it again. This happened with both ACE on-line cont. ed exams I have taken..

    A good overview and refresher of proper form and exercise selection for the group fitness strength training class. My only reason for the four stars is the quality of the sample class - was not well led or well thought out and the participants occasionally showed bad form that was not corrected by the instructor.
