Learned so much
yes of course it help me to gain more information about fitness
Excellent course.Certainly opened my eyes to see fitness and weight loss in a different view.
The idea behind this course is fantastic BUT (and it is a huge 'but') as it was a FREE course there was no chance of discussion with the Instructor. I disagree with some of the answers - indeed also some of the questions for lacking clarity - and am unable to discuss. That's a huge pity. Taking question 19 as an example. I'll be generous - question 19 is clumsy. If I'm not generous then it is just nonsense (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3894304/) UPDATE This will show why it is a pity there is no room for discussion. Firstly, Michael writes I am the first to misunderstand the question. He has absolutely no way of knowing that. There may well be others who 'misunderstood the question' (as he puts it) but did not mention it in review. He also writes that it 'appears' I misunderstood the answer. I didn't. Question 19 is a clumsy misleading imprecise question. I put that question in the Q/A section of another fitness course on Udemy. (A best seller) The Instructor gave the same answer as I did - and for the same reasons. Never mind what the 'point' of the question was. I answered the question set (as did the other Instructor - we both have fitness courses) and we both gave the so-called wrong answer. The answer given is neither right nor wrong in that the question is vague. Question 16 is also highly debatable. If you are likely to do 'X' and want to lose weight then you must not do 'X'. This is true if X is a plate of doughnuts and you're likely to over indulge. It is not true - of course - if you're not likely to over indulge. Hence: clumsy question. What might be very useful is if the Instructor put a price on the course and then gave away coupons (thus it is still free) and therefore facilitated discussion so he could then redraft questions on the basis of (anecdotal) evidence. As an example, I am on a stroke course. Paid but free coupon. I have been involved in 53 discussions and there has been a lot of exchange of information. (I have three stroke courses on Udemy).
