Pedal PT Online Academy Testimonials  

I absolutely loved this course! 
After doing some reading, listening to podcasts, and watching other videos, I was getting overwhelmed by the number of possible adjustments and factors to consider when bike-fitting. Your course really simplified things and encouraged me to fall back on the strengths we have as PTs--observation and functional movements.  I now have a great "1-hour" method for getting through a fit without going nuts measuring everything.  
Since taking your class, I also gained the confidence to start promoting myself as a bike fitter on my clinic's marketing materials, and I have already started getting new clients!   
Thank you so much for creating this and for offering continued support!

  “The Pedal PT online learning course does an excellent job of distilling the sometimes complex process of performing a Bike Fitting into easily digestible videos for learning at your own pace.

The course covers basics of bike adjustment, how to prepare your “Fitting Studio” and also quick analysis of some of the dysfunctions/injuries you are likely to see.

This course is a great step into building your bike-fitting knowledge and confidence, and a great choice for therapists who are interested in expanding to work with more cycling clientele.”

“If Bike Fitting interests you, I think The Pedal PT Online Academy is great. Eligible for CEUs. 
And you get tons of mentorship, which in my opinion no other CE course out there is comparable to this.
Kevin Schmidt knows his stuff, and he’s very approachable. You’ll learn a lot from him whether it’s clinical pearls, bike fitting or running a business.”
