    Thank you for this amazing certification! My special interest from day one always has been in Rehabilitation which helps me and my client to overcome their pain and aches. Being a strength and conditioning coach, I had to look into sports-specific injuries and these courses were amazing. They cover almost everything about anatomy from the biomechanics of the human body to the science behind all movement, and so on. These courses are designed to help personal trainers and conditioning coach to fill up their Knowledge with sports specific injuries. I thoroughly enjoyed it and all contents provided in the manual were really helpful. Highly recommended to all exercise professionals.
