What are students saying?

So much better than corrective exercise

Sharon, Personal Trainer/Group Fitness

Given enough years, every client has something that hurts. The idea of movement optimization pathways has been SO much more effective and easy to use, compared to trying to figure out how to put corrective exercises together to help clients feel great moving. Thank you for all the videos that outline great sequences for me to use with ALL of my clients.

All about action

Hannah, Fitness & Lifestyle Coach

The way Dr. Meredith presents the material is so simplistic! It really fit my visual learning style. Even though I have 3 other fitness certifications, this is by far the most useful. Instead of studying theory, it was all about actions that I needed to take my client coaching to the next level right away.

Priced way too low

Eric, Gym Owner

Your course is priced way too low! I’ve taken other fitness certifications with only 25% of this information for thousands of dollars.

Fixed my shoulder pain

Pam, Pilates Instructor/Personal Trainer

I know this course isn’t about fixing injuries, but the shoulder movement optimization section fixed the nagging shoulder pain I’ve had with lifting. I’m not sure how many medical providers I’ve seen over the past 5 years for my shoulder. It was super frustrating for so many people to tell me nothing was wrong. Thank you so much for the added bonus of finally lifting without shoulder pain :)


Kia, Online Trainer/Nutrition Coach

This is like 5 certifications all-in-one without being overly technical. I really wish this course had been offered in 2020, because I wouldn’t have paid for any of those other certifications. This one really gave me everything I needed as a personal trainer and nutrition coach both in person, and online. Glad I came across this opportunity.
