Reviews

very informative, excellent course

Loved this course as I, myself, have low back issues and need to be careful.

Well done! Excellent application of exercises directly related to the muscular performance of the lower back.

Entertaining and practical. I'll start using this info for myself, my clients, and my classes asap. (And the quiz made perfect sense too!)
