This was another brillant course that was well planned, the professors were outstanding and offered vital data supporting how to maintain a well balanced health plan. I've lost 5 pounds, eat less meat more veggies and walk at least 1500 steps daily.

This was a good course. I learned about the importance of moving more and got a better understanding of how to go about integrating more movement into my daily life.

This course helped me to incorporate an active lifestyle in my daily life. Also, it pointed out the ways that one could be active. A must for every person irrespective of their age.

Very inspiring indeed full of down to earth and updated information for ALL!

Thank you very much!!
