    "I really enjoyed taking this course from Dr. Len Kravitz. He's dynamic!"

    "This is a great information exchange and a wonderful webinar! I gained information on the GAS approach, the importance of changing the stimulus frequently, and multiple exercise versus multiple set. I now have a better understanding in order to help clients achieve their fitness goals by using the undulating periodization."

    S. Johnson—Gilbert, AZ

    "I have a greater knowledge about the carbohydrate periodization and the affirmation that simply not taking in enough calories and carbohydrate makes it impossible to build muscle quickly."

    Z. Teich—Scottsdale, PA

    "I learned current information on periodization, particularly as it relates to protein, carbohydrate, and fat intake on a daily basis."
