Stop Wasting Your Time

When most people start an exercise program they walk into a gym look around and just sort of copy some of the exercises other people are doing and through trial and error they figure out what works for them. They don’t take a minute to consider what their goals are, if they are exercising the muscle groups that are important to them, if they are doing the exercises properly or if they’ve structured the exercise program in the most efficient way. In this course we address all of these issues so you can get the most out of your exercise program, you can see the results you’re looking for and spend as little time exercising as possible.

Content and Overview

This course is for beginner exercisers, people that are consistently exercising, but not seeing the results they expected for the amount of work they put in and anyone who is thinking about becoming a personal trainer or enrolled in a personal training course to get the fundamentals. You’ll learn the basic concepts of strength training, cardiovascular training and mobility training. You will understand which type is best suited for you and how much of each type you should do. This course is predominantly video lecture based with a variety of external resources as well as downloadable worksheets that are meant to be thought provoking so you can decide what is really important in your life, why you should exercise and how to implement a successful fitness routine that works for you.
