Based on 20 reviews.

A good course which fully explains all you need to know. Concise and informative.
I felt the course was just the right length, without jargon and keeping to the point. Having had back trouble my self in the past, I not only know how painful it is, but how valuable it is to do things correctly. The course is not only valuable in the work place but also in our day to day life's
I learned a lot about posture and helpful tips on how to prevent back pain. Very simple, bite-sized chunks with clear audio.
