Could not understand certain muscle group name, some pictures have arrow marking towards particular muscle with the name mentioned where as some don’t. Apart from this, knowledge provided in the course will be useful especially for beginners. Appreciate the hard work and efforts.

Well I did learn 2-3 things but overall I didn't think it was a course for Fitness Coaches, unless there's not much more to it, it did just seem it was more towards someone who wanted to learn more about exercise. I would of like more info in a regarding becoming a Fitness Coach and there was no info regarding the Business side of things and the Certificate looks pathetic but thats probably Udemy's fault
March 8, 2022
Thu far it's been very informative but would have greatly appreciated some resources that I can read from.
March 1, 2022
My overall experience was amazing. Got to learn new things and it laid the foundation for a deeper dive into training. I will recommend this course to anyone who is planning to get started in fitness personally or as a trainer.

Very informative. Highly recommended for beginners and aspiring trainers alike. Well-spoken and good visuals and graphics. Will be learning more from Mr. Harder in the future. Swede Anderson

Thanks for the valuable learning I learnt a lot and also going to teach at my Gym. Thank you once again.

A lot of what Felix says is known to people who have been lifting weights for a while, but hearing it from him reinforces what you'd know as he's a trained nutritionist and certified strength coach which in a strange way provides a stamp of approval for ones own knowledge.

Really enjoying the course, the trainer is very engaging and the information he's supplying is excellent. Looking forward to the second half.
November 30, 2021
It really helped me understand and went into detail about certain things and changed my perspective about some ways of training. I enjoyed doing it.
October 5, 2021
Course is very good for beginners but for people already in this field there are very small things to learn.
September 17, 2021
Great course for beginners, with well defined examples and taking a complete overview of a human body, general nutrition and training design.
