"Today's fitness professional is often too busy helping their clients to keep up with the latest medical guidance that can greatly improve their clients' results ‐‐ and protect their clients from unintended harm. But now they have a reference they can turn to for an in‐depth and up‐to‐date review of how chronic disease impacts exercise prescription, program design, and session training delivery. I am so glad that my friend and colleague Dr. Dan Mikeska has shared his doctoral research in this important missing link in the divide between healthcare and prevention..." Dr. Suzie Carmack, Asst. Professor of Global and Community Health at George Mason University & CEO of YogaMedCo

"I currently work at a gym facility and I have experience working in a physical therapy center as a trainer. I worked with pre- and post-rehab clients in both settings and this course will help me further in my career. I was able to learn in depth about what clients and patients may be struggling with when it comes to their injuries and surgeries." Amanda S.
