"I intend to use the knowledge about women’s metabolism to develop
more effective workout plans for my clients."

"It was useful to identify the body fat differences between males and
females and how they metabolize fat differently during exercise."

"I learned more specific information as it relates to women and their
challenges with losing weight. I will apply this course to my current
programs by implementing more variation in training and discussing in
detail the best outcomes for a successful program."
