Solid introduction to the field. Could be quite challenging for those who don't have a strong background in biology and chemistry like myself. Enjoyed the assignments and exams which focused on application of the material, testing us through the use of brief case studies.

Very good coverage of exercise physiology for amateur sports persons to better understand how their bodies and muscles function when they exercise, what fuels are used in endurance and sprint type exertions, what happens when we exercise in the heat etc. I found a lot of useful knowledge that i can use to try to improve my performance in sports, but whether I shall actually be able to improve remains to be seen. : )
