It is a very great course. This course taught me many great things about the human body like how the body responses to exercise and nutrition. What, when, how we should do exercise and take nutrition.

The course is well structured, the professor is very knowledgeable and easy to understand. I like to follow along with the written form of translation of speech and the verbiage sometimes didn't line up with what the professor stated, as far as, exact words spoken. I recommend the course.

Ha sido un curso muy instructivo. Me ha hecho ver la posibilidad de diseñar un plan de entrenamiento desde un punto de vista mas científico y exacto.
Creo que es el tipo de curso que toda persona interesada en trabajar en el mundo del fitness o de manera general el deporte debería pasar.

Had an excellent insight on how each part of the body reacts due to physical activity. Also one thing is loud and clear, it is never too late to take up fitness and is the best medicine for all physical and mental ailments. A hearty thanks to the trainer for the holistic approach

This course has been very enriching, there are many topics and useful information, the topics that are seen require more dedication for those who do not have an academic training in medicine or nutrition since there are scientific terms. The syllabus of the course is very good.

Dr. Mazzeo is a fantastic professor and does a great job of thoroughly explaining all relevant information. I learned much more than I expected with this course. Great for anyone interested in the physiology of exercise and how it interacts with the various systems of the body.

Un curso muy interesante, ideal si te dedicas a alguna rama de la salud o si te interesa el tema simplemente. Todos deberían conocer los beneficios que la actividad física tiene para la salud. El profesor da explicaciones claras y los vídeos son cortos y fáciles de seguir

The course was very interesting and value for time spent. I work reasonably long hours but looked forward to the videos and the reading material. I am happy to have taken it. Thank you for the reading material and videos that are not too long, yet capture the essence.

Science of Exercise is a course that includes a complete set of tutorials, describing and analyzing how the body and it's systems work and adapt during different types of exercise. The tutors have done an amazing work keeping it rich yet simple! Definitely recommended!

Muy buen curso, bastante claro y objetivas sus explicaciones... es necesario contar con una base de conocimiento en cuanto a degradación de sistemas energéticos y las diversas funciones del ejercicio en el organismo para mejorar la comprensión de ciertas terminologías

I truly enjoyed this course and its simple structure. The information provided is invaluable to me and my future goals. I particularly enjoyed the final graded assessment; it was a true measure of one's ability to apply what they learned throughout the four weeks.

Excellent course that really shifted my vision of the mechanism of exercise.
Sometimes complex schemes could be further explained but apart from this, it was one of my best course on Coursera.
Can be done by anyone from a professional physio to a beginner in biology

Very much helpful in understanding the whole science and mechanisms behind exercise and its adaptation. It would even help a common person without life science background to understand the true nature of exercise and help them being healthy and contented in life

Great course!!!! i would only have the final question be a bit clearer on the info they are looking for, cause i found i could have written for day on the subject. Or maybe i didn't get the question well enough. But still really great course. Thanks Dr. Mazzeo

Great course. Got to get hold of the MCSM and Kluwer Textbooks to get the feeling of the material closer to a college course. The course ends with a peer-reviewed exercise: Two out of three solutions I was supposed to review were a complete waste of time ...
