“I absolutely LOVED this course. Your correspondence courses are so easy to follow!” – Lisa S from Victoria

“Doing the Kinesiologists.ca online distance courses is straight-forward and requires that you are self-motivated and are able to look through reading material that is presented in a structured and succinct way. Aaron is there to fill in any blanks or questions you may have throughout the process with patience and encouragement, which is exactly what you need when life gets in the way of the course. I highly recommend this course and Aaron as an instructor. For many people, there isn’t enough time to take the Fitness Theory, Weight Training and Personal Training courses in person. Aaron makes this all possible and truly cares about your progress along the way. Thanks, Aaron!” – Alex M from Victoria 

“Hello Aaron:  Thanks again for such a great course. I am impressed with your feedback and how prompt you are. Warm Regards” – Dan W. from Vancouver Island
