    I lost weight when mine was acting up. Never had it removed though. Took an olive oil and lemon juice cleanse, followed by a course of herbal tablets instead.

    You can easily take the course online. The first portion is all from textbook- anatomy, exercise physiology, nutrition, fitness assessment, special considerations, etc. The second portion is hands on (fitness assessment/proper lifting techniques) so I'm not sure how they will accommodate that portion. Once you pass those two portions, you'll have to complete a number of hours interning at a gym. Whether you should take it online depends on your learning style. I prefer the classroom environment because I tend to absorb the material better.
    I'm thinking of taking some health courses, too, just for fun. Do you think the online classes are worth it or is it better just to wait and take them in person?

    Hello fellow middle-agers. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm 43 and attempting to age in reverse, Benjamin Button style. I'm ten years into my fitness journey, still learning and going strong. I was previously certified as a PT which I obtained for personal reasons not for employment. With that said, if you have any questions I'll help if I can. Happy Holidays!

    My friends tell me I look 10-15 years younger than I am. But I want my health and fitness to match that
