“People don’t just need an exercise program or a diet plan. They need an expert who can guide and empower them. They need someone who can connect with them in a way that makes them believe they have the ability to make meaningful and lasting changes.” Cedric Bryant, American Council on Exercise (ACE) Chief Science Officer, San Diego, CA
