    This course presented an easy to understand hands on approach to learning. Theory is backed up with practical applications to allow the trainers to consolidate their new knowledge. I came away from this course understanding fully how to add to my expertise and add value for my clients.

    I loved that this course explained the science behind PNF and in a way that I can pass on to my clients. The skills I learned have enabled me to value-add to the stretching component of every session as it is literally ‘hands on’, rather than the side-by-side stretching that many trainers do. This is a CEC course that gave me information that I can use every day.
