TOP REVIEWS FROM HACKING EXERCISE FOR HEALTH. THE SURPRISING NEW SCIENCE OF FITNESS.
i loved it and learnt alot about how to help people exercise to get results with factoring in shortage of time todays life style of people being busy all the time
For those of us who are not Olympians, there is hope to stay in shape without spending hundreds of hours in the gym. This is a fun, yet useful mooc.
Very entertaining and educational. They gave me easy steps that I could immediately implement to improve the quality of my workouts.
Es un curso bastante informativo y didáctico, sin embargo, me habría gustado profundizar en el ejercicio de fuerza y la importancia de la carga progresiva, etc
