This was the most useful CEU course I've taken in my 6 years as a trainer. The content was excellent and straight forward – very different from most other mind-numbing intro courses I’ve taken.

Nicholas LaRocca, Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist

I've taken a few other pre/postnatal courses, and this was the first time I have seen some of this information. I found the introduction to the labor process fascinating and well presented, and appreciated how applicable the programming principles were to preparing women for pregnancy, labor, and the daily demands of motherhood. I will continue to reference the material with my clients. Thanks so much for putting together such a comprehensive overview!

Erica Friedman, NASM-CPT, CPPC

This course was such an eye opener for me, and I was fascinated by all the information provided. The content is thorough, but to the point, and is so well-written and easy to understand. It’s a great taster that gets you excited for the full course!

Sally Salama, Group Fitness Instructor

The course promised I'd have ideas I could immediately apply with all my clients, and it delivered. This is a great pre & postnatal course, but it also has elements that can serve so many different populations.

Shu-Fy Pongnon, Certified Group Fitness Instructor

The entire approach to training for pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood...it's all so logical and makes sense! Loved having the data to back up the claims. The information was insightful, thorough, and interesting. I learned so much!

Claire Yanta-O'Mahoney, Certified Personal Trainer & Group Fitness Instructor

The information -- and the way it was explained -- made so much sense. I was able to gain much more knowledge in this short course and feel more confident with my own pregnancy and training other pregnant women. Wonderful course!

Tamara Nisanov, Certified Personal Trainer & Group Fitness Instructor

I think this is a brilliant introduction to pre & postnatal coaching that all coaches should be required to do as a bare minimum! Excellent content that has inspired me to now study further.
