Wonderful team, the courses are life changing (at least for myself), not only to get a strong start in PT activity, but to have a clear picture about fake/ real news about fitness. Bonus, I got (on each level) very handy free books and flexibility to complete (or re-take) the course with in next three years.

If I were to do the course again, I'd aim to do it in person; Andres' time, guidance and energy helped the distance learning and assessment aspects feel less tough!
