    "I have learned different ways to do interval training that could apply to all levels of fitness."

    “This course gave me a variety of ideas to use in my training sessions. It will be great for small-group training because it includes a great warm-up, demonstrates partner drills, and incorporates tubing and gliding discs. It is simple choreography but delivers intense intervals. Well done!”

    E. Garvin—Salem, VA, Pilates and Yoga Instructor

    “The interval training methods were easy to follow and would be great for those just getting into the fitness profession or as a good review for those already familiar with interval training. Practical application, easy to follow and hands on!”
