    This is an excellent video course if you're up for re-certification and need CECs - or if you just want to understand muscle anatomy better. Very clear, useful review of some basics, taught in a visceral, hands-on (literally) way that makes the information stick in your brain. Beverly Hosford is a professional teacher (professor), and it shows in her ability to get knowledge across in a memorable way. She's local to me - I may have to check out her courses!

    Tips: You will want to be able to move around and poke at parts of your body while watching this. Probably better at home than on a lunch break at the office. You will find it helpful to have a big rubber band or un-inflated balloon handy, but using your imagination works, too.

    I am studying for ACE pt and have found this to be VERY helpful. I think more like this would be great.

    You might think this is a boring old dry anatomy course.

    But it is not. Its as the top rating says, awesome.

    This is teaching anatomy with direct practical uses with clients in personal training. It was what was lacking and is going to force a new level of skills as a personal trainer.

    Beverly is on the top of her fitness game and I have never seen someone in this field with such a mastery of the muscular skeletal system and relates it to dealing with real issues clients present.

    Also the video is engrossing. Once you get started, it is hard not to want to watch the entire recording and then want to repeat watching it.

    Already the techniques pointed out are helping the personal trainer practice. They all come from her experience in applying them.

    And so so now more motivated to become more conversant about the muscular skeletal system.

    Beverly is the personal trainer's mentor to have if you want to move to the next level.

    This DVD is super informative and great for anyone in the field looking to brush up on their anatomy skills. Beverly uses props to help you visually conceptualize exactly what muscles are being worked upon specific movements. Let's face it, we could all use a refresher on anatomy and this DVD covers just that and more!
