What’s the right mix of exercise between cardio and strength? How do you know if you’re working out hard enough? What’s better, heavy or light weights? These questions and more are addressed through a course designed to provide even the most inexperienced of exercisers the tools you need to design time-efficient workouts that can be done virtually anywhere, from your own home to a city park or even at your workplace.

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
Best online course. That put so efficiently the importance of exercise that It immediately motivates you to perform exercise.
I would be interested in additional courses, based around short workouts as described in the book "The One Minute Workout"
Good course. Suggestion: Remove the intro in front of every video. Its repetitive and doesn't add any additional value.
