Writing/saving client workouts

12 Answers | Asked by Samantha Kellgren on May 10, 2015

Are meal replacement programs, like Isagenix, safe to use?

8 Answers | Asked by Julie Cummins on May 20, 2015

Answered by Christine Hales on May 22, 2015

Answered by Christine Hales on May 11, 2015

Hi Lenisa, If you purchased this from IDEA, perhaps it would be in your My Education file (I'm not positive, but you could start there until someone from IDEA can help you as well). Log in and go to My Account, under Overview, and then scroll over to My Education. Hope that helps. Christ...
