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

    Now that I'm an aging senior, I realize the necessity of having a more in depth knowledge of the workings of my body. Learning anatomical technical terms can be challenging, however, as with most things, conquering the more difficult has its payoffs! As a great motivational speaker, Beverly, is able to effectively communicate interactively with her audience. From the video, I've learned how to better control my anatomical issues.

    Great video! Its so essential to get a refresher in the basics every once in a while if you work in fitness.

    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.
