What People Are Saying
Completely changed the structuring of my approach to training clients and structuring sessions. Donal is a very impressive presenter, who I travelled from Melbourne to Sydney to see!
Matt Grant - Sydney, Australia
I have recently [attended] the C.H.E.K Institute Exercise Coach course in the UK. Two weeks later I am reaping in the benefits! Besides the fact that my prices have now raised a considerable amount, I find myself delivering a more comprehensive service to my clients. The knowledge and skills I have learnt from the course have greatly impressed those who I coach and as a result my client base has increased…in just two weeks. I can’t wait to see what happens in two months time!!
