The information obtained from the Resistance Training Program has helped me structure and develop safe and challenging programs for my clients. I have become more acute at recognizing postural deviations and learning to correct them before potential injuries can occur. Thank you Ken and associates for providing a wonderful resource that gives me the confidence to take my career to the next level. - Patricia Tatem from Indian Trail, NC, NPI-Certified Posture Specialist (CPS), Fitness Director/Plantation Estates ACTS Retirement Communities
