Wow! This was the best ACE CEC course I've taken so far enroute to getting my 2.0 credits for re-accreditation. I am indeed working with 50+ clients, including a client in her mid-60s who's borderline morbidly obese and another client who suffered a brain injury in an accident and requires neuroplasticity work. Because of the COVID 19 lockdown, I've had to train my clients online through Zoom. It was really invigorating and reassuring to see and hear that I'm doing the right things. Keep up the great work!

You’ll learn how attitudes, opinions and feelings about exercise are learned and conditioned, and how to turn negativity to positivity.
