all in detail. have not gone through the whole book yet, but its mostly all the civil part of this book on how not to get sued. lol. and the personal training part on how to treat a person training how to give them mobility in their brains and stuff like that. when i get deeper in to the book
i will add to this review. have a great day.
If you read the reviews, even the most positive ones say things like, "not what I thought it would be," or "geared toward people who are already certified." If you're already a trainer, the detailed instructions on how to write a business plan and market yourself could be quite useful. Otherwise, those wanting to break into the field can go online and find everything you need from this book in about fifteen minutes. Good luck!
