Really enjoyed this course, very interesting, loved that week two was all about the application, not sure how easy i am going to find applying this to practice in Wales, UK however - very limited resources.
Tutors very knowledgeable and obviously enthusiastic .
Case studies useful, i think videos talking through the case studies for clarity would have been great.
Thanks for a great course!
(Ricardo i think i worked with you in the Wiral, UK)
The course presented the issues athletes face extremely well and then went about sorting solutions to the issues based on the research which has been done in the field. Very informative and helpful when dealing with athletes across all sports who have gastrointestinal symptoms.
The course wasn't well described, I'd probably go as far as saying misrepresented, in the marketing literature. The content was actually primarily about ultra endurance athletes not about regular exercise. I personally see ethical/moral issues with the excessive consumption of food/nutrients by endurance athletes when so many people on earth are hungry so it is highly unlikely I'll ever use the information provided.
