#1 Rated Personal Training Course

I truly enjoyed the Personal Training course with Body Design University. I have some experience in the field but BDU took my knowledge to the next level. I especially cherish the new knowledge in the business and marketing fields as that is often times over looked. BDU does an excellent job of giving in depth "how to's" when it comes to business and marketing, especially with respect to sales objections and personality types. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
