"What a brilliant course, I learned so much and enjoyed every minute of it. KG Elite Performance's team of tutors are world class and were very approachable on any questions I had on the course. They were able to impart their wealth of knowledge from years of experience in a manner that was easy to understand. Added to this, they had excellent demonstration skills on all lifts and speed drills which increased my rate of learning. I will definitely recommend this course to any fitness professional and look forward to any follow up courses with KGEP" (Sam Richards, Swansea, Wales)

"Hugely enjoyable course and probably the best I have done after 10 years in the fitness industry. The level of tutoring from KGEP was exceptional and had a great mix of professionalism and humor which made it a very enjoyable experience. It was a very challenging course which extended my abilities all the time, but I appreciated having to work for my qualification. I would highly recommend the NCSC course for any fitness professional who wants to become an Internationally recognized S&C coach" (Chris Bradley, Greenvale Leisure Centre, Co. Derry)
