This program has helped me to better my own fitness level and be able to work with others. I love to work with children and the elderly, and this program helped me to design fitness programs for all levels of fitness. Thanks Penn Foster! I loved the ability to work at my own pace and the cost and payment plan was very affordable. Coursework was easy to follow, and instructors were helpful and informative.
