Course Reviews

I will use every aspect of this block of instruction with my work. I really enjoyed it. It really challenged me, in that, it forced me to relearn & remember some things that I have not used or thought about in a while. Great Course! Stephen Anthony King, WITS Certified Professional

Great info! Thank you very much. I now have more ideas on how to use the G Ball for myself and those I help train. This course will make setting up programs much easier. Looking forward to taking more! John Zajac, ACE Certified Professional

Glad to have this course as a resource. I have a greater appreciation for the importance of stabilization and core strengthening. Also ideas to implement with clients. Natalie Radcliffe, ACE Certified Professional

I did the shoulder workout regularly and it eliminated my shoulder problem I have had for 8 months. I am impressed especially with the rotator. You’re course is excellent, not only from an instructors standpoint, but it zero’s in on very specific areas that always need attention for any athletic level and sport, from beginner to pro. Tammy May, WITS Certified Professional

This program gave me a greater awareness of how to use the stability ball. The program was also divided into areas of concern (lower back, upper back and neck, shoulder care) that my clients can benefit from, like gaining good posture, muscle strength, flexibility and stability. Correct exercises for these areas and the muscles that the exercises targeted was also covered. The videos were helpful in seeing the correct way to do the exercises and an explanation of the exercise was covered during each of the sections. I have already started using it with my clients. I see the benefits of knowing how to use the stability ball for certain areas of the body. This will help me target areas for my clients needs. Thank you also for calling back when I had a question about the course. I will definitely encourage my friends to look into your programs and continue learning more through the GMP courses. Ligia Cosgren, WITS Certified Professional

Loved the course. Very informative and well put together. I have gained an excellent understanding and knowledge of the advantages of the G Ball. I will implement many more G Ball routines for my clients. Sean Arnold, WITS Certified Professional
