"I intend to use the knowledge about women’s metabolism to develop more effective workout plans for my clients."

T. Shull—Morrison, CO

"It was useful to identify the body fat differences between males and females and how they metabolize fat differently during exercise."

K. Kelly—Rockville, MD

"I learned more specific information as it relates to women and their challenges with losing weight. I will apply this course to my current programs by implementing more variation in training and discussing in detail the best outcomes for a successful program."

K. Flowers—Blacklick, OH

"I’ve gained a better understanding of what to do with clients. The course also reinforced the fact that one has to put all the information together to create a realistic weight loss program that will work."
