    one of the best presenters I've seen so far. Made it very easy to understand complex information.

  • by Amber Toole on Mar 02, 2018

    I have many clients who need strengthening for their posterior chain. I got great ideas for exercises I can incorporate into their plan. Thank you!

  • by Rachel Hannah on Feb 25, 2018

    Excellent presentation, full of valuable information. No time was wasted! Michol was easy to understand and reinforced things I already know as well as got me thinking howto take things to the next level. My only critique, which has nothing to do with the presentation, is the filming. I have found with these videos of conferences, the videographer keeps the camera on the presenter, when the information we need to see is on the presenters slideshow. This is very frustrating. I was very appreciative of access to the exercises at the end though. Thank you!

    I liked the presentation but found it very frustrating watching the group watch and discuss exercise videos that were not shown to the viewer.

    I always enjoy Lynne’s presenting.
