I need to verify our employee's AFAA personal trainer certification. How can I do this online?

5 Answers | Asked by Sofi George on May 06, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 06, 2013

8 Answers | Asked by daya mayi on May 04, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 05, 2013

Hi Daya, I understand your concern about not wanting to gain weight but a broken bone usually heals in 6 to 8 weeks, and then you can get back to what you did before, doctor's clearance assuming. Why don't you use this as an opportunity to try out different exercises like mat Pilates which is ...
