...thank you for your contribution to the world of fitness. I have used ExRx.net many times when confused about exercise technique and execution.
Andrew Edwards, computer science student, U.C. of Santa Cruz
Thank you for a very comprehensive and clear set of programmes. I am now 67, and follow weight training programmes to maintain muscle tone and performance. My wife has a farm, and one needs to use hands, back and legs as often as the brain. German advisory sites tend to treat the older adults as senile and soft, which some are. Their advice is more therapeutic and passive. Your site offers neutral advice which is both challenging and helpful. Basically it is good to think of the group who are still active, and can continiue to work, who need heavier routines in autumn and winter, for instance, so that the summer finds one fresch and able to go out into the fields. My friends at or around 70 still carry and move as much as before, only our rest times are longer, and perhaps the pain less passing.
Juno Varkki (Sinspelt, Germany)
We consider your site to be a great resource in the industry, and personally speaking, I have been a user/follower of your site since my undergrad days.
Jamie Guined, Operations Manager and Exercise Scientist, MovNat
First off, your site is a terrific resource for any exercise professional. I was first introduced to its existence while studying Exercise Science at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I have since taken a job where I oversee our YMCA programs, wellness center, and personal trainers. I refer all of my trainers to this site to add variety to their workouts and to stay on top of the always evolving field of exercise science. Thanks and keep up the good work,

I am currently the head strength and conditioning coach for Idaho State University Athletics. I work with 14 division 1 teams that consist of over 300 athletes. I have been coaching and personal training for over 25years. I also have 10 national certifications, but have never come across better information than ExRx.net. I love telling athletes and coaches about your site and using it as a credible resource.

Thanks for the great site! I visit often.
Ben Author, Cornell University (Ithaca, NY)
Recently I developed a few minor joint problems which were making me lose interest in weights, as I could not do some of my favorite exercises. Then I discovered your website and everything has changed ! There are so many different exercises I never knew existed which don't hurt those joints. I had no idea there were so many ! Your website has certainly changed things for me.
Wow, i just stumbled on this website!! it is by far one of the best fitness websites i have ever been on. Who ever makes this site thank you so much for the time it must take to find and put all this good stuff on here! and its free! especially for the mucsle specific workouts which are great for muscle imbalances! Thanks again ExRx.net!

Thanks for such an awesome site!!
I've been referring to Exrx.net for 4 years now and it never ceases to amaze me. I love the fact that the website has a huge database of reliable information presented in a concise bullet point format, I wish all websites were like that. In my opinion, school courses should follow the same format. Thank you for sharing with us this extensive amount of knowledge on fitness and for helping me know what I know today.

I love your site... One thing I know is that your site is now the best site on the net for obtaining exercise/muscle information. It has become a go-to reservoir of information for many people in the *world*.
Dan Premetz (Waukesha, WI)
It´s fantastic and your site is an answer to my prayers. I´m planning and distributing programs for my 16-18y track juniors. We speak swedish, finnish and english in my group which makes it VERY timeconsuming to explain things verbally. Now I can use my laptop, point to an exercise and say "let´s go". My focus can stay on correcting instead of explaining.
Alexander Holthoer (Finland)
I must say that your site serves many people in my country. I really like it. Thanks for your contribution to the world!
Amit Gal Alon (Israel)
I have been using your site for a long time, and its really helped my business.

I have been extremely pleased with the graphics, quantity of information and accuracy of the information you share. You have been a tremendous source of fitness information.

I was turned on to your site in college and still use it today.
Christopher M. Hess (Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH)
I’ve used your site since around 2007 for my own home exercise routines and amateur body building. It has helped me create a routine through which I’ve gone from about 135 lbs to 160 now.
Bob Provencher (Columbia, NJ)
...I want to thank you for your wonderful website.
I cannot thank you enough for the free knowledge that you provide to the public on your website. Weight training is a passion of mine, and this year has proven to be a very difficult one for me due to shoulder and upper back/neck injuries. Thanks to your website, I’ve been able to supplement my physical therapy and chiropractic treatments by building my own customized rehabilitation program. You exercise and muscle directory is invaluable. I visit your site multiple times daily to research muscle attachments, movements, and exercises. Thank you for your very significant contribution to the health and fitness enthusiasts all over the world.
$20 Donation from Rob Tucker. Thanks Rob!
I do follow and use your web site ExRx to get advice or confirmation regarding recommending exercises to my clients or friends before handout my routines to them. The VHI PC-Kits Software is, for me, amazing, really useful and easy to work with.
p.s. I promise to purchase the whole set when i get some more clients. :-)
Juan Tamariz, A happy client (Spain)
Thanks for the information website, it is very complete and statements are build upon lecture and research instead of gym-logic, something I much appreciate. The amount of time that went into creating the website is clearly immensely huge. It is sometimes hard to move my mates who I met at the gym away from the bodybuilding articles that are full of typical 'gym wisdom' and towards science backed materials, that don't always speak the things they want to hear. It might appeal to me more naturally due to my education (uni, but engineering related). However I will continue to spread the word because I firmly believe that research within a scientific framework and the conclusions deduced from this area much more valuable than articles written by persons who also are in the field of selling X amount of bang-named supplements of which the substance names can hardly be found in medical literature, not to even speak of the conflicts of interest.
I am an ACE certified personal trainer which has only gotten me so far. I consult your site literally ALL the time for guidance and it has been a great help to me. Thank you very much.
Joel Thomas: $10 Donation. (Thanks Joel)
Thank you for an excellent resource, I have recently started out in the industry as a Personal Trainer and Aerobics Instructor and your site has helped me through countless exams and answered many of my questions.

Been using your website for some time now, and it's by far the best fitness resource on the web. It covers everything, is accessible, has loads of scientifically-backed theories and is very helpful for me when working with my clients. Thanks for an absolutely superb website.
Matt Levy, YMCA Trainer & Instructor (United Kingdom)
...I've been using your site for exercise reference for over a year now... Thanks for providing us with this great info!
I love your site and using it a lot...
It is refreshing to find information that is objective, without any witty comments from authors and gets to the point. The authors get to the bottom line without the nonsense of advertising or scantily clad athletes or asking for subscription to deliver information thats been around for ages and stuff like this requires hours of searching. Thank you for disseminating this information.
I have searched all over the web and haven't found a site that nearly covers the range of material that your site does the way it does allowing people from various professions to easily utilize it. From trainers and workout enthusiast to physical therapist and kinesiologists the information you offer is incredibly useful!
I think your site is one of the best I have ever seen.
I'd like to thank you for the excellent information I've found on your website, especially your food and diet resources are my favorites.
...commendations for an embarrisingly rich source of health and fitness related information.
Mid-way through my year long Personal Training course at college, this site is fantastic, by far the best on the net. Although I haven't donated yet, I definitely will soon - well worth it! Thank you.
I want to thank you for all the great information I have pulled from your site and the help you have given me and my friends over the years.
Jeff Wendt, Fit Diabetic LLC
Fantastic website! Just discovered it, and i can't wait to fully explore and learn everything here. I'm presently studying for my certification, and i think ExRx is going to be an excellent resource. Thank you!!!!
Ursula Williams (Los Angeles, CA)
One of the best sites for reference on the web! This site is very informative and concise. It answers all questions I have regarding making a training plan. With the help of your site I have lost 40 pounds and 5% body fat in the last year. I constantly come back to the site to view the new exercises that are posted. Thank you for giving this gift to the world!
First off, my partner, Shana and I LOVE your site. It's a wonderful resource....
Tim Haft, Punkrope.com
I've been a massive fan of ExRx ever since I stumbled on it many, many years ago as a gym going novice and it still serves me well today, so many thanks for bestowing such a gem on the health and fitness world.
Just wanted to say thank you for creating this website. I am in my third year of a four year B.Sc. in Kinesiology. I have consistently come back to your website over the years as supplementary study material. I honestly think my professors should assign this website as required reading instead of the hundreds of dollars they make us spend on textbooks we never use. Thanks again!
Such a great site, I always use it before my workouts and the secondary muscle info is great! Please keep up the great work!
Alex Collins: $10 Donation. (Thanks Alex)

I'd like to thank you for the high quality resources you have listed on exercise equipment, it's awesome.
...even though we have never met your vision, persaverance and fortitued gave me the inspiration to just do a little everyday and that is why I have a great website, it's because of you! You have taught me that you will eventually reach the place you want to be if you just do a little everyday. Where ever that place may be, we all have different places. In saying that you have been a mentor from just your actions. Thanks for doing such a great job in what you do because you are an inspiration to many.
Chris Geagon, Main Street Fitness (Warren, Rhode Island)
I just stumbled on to your site looking for some details of certain exercises for building rotator cuff strength. Then I further discovered the wealth of knowledge in the site. The best website I've been in. Thanks.
Melvin Araujo (Dominican Republic)
I am very intimidated by going into the gym because i never know what to do. I can't afford a personal trainer either. Your website is making it possible for me to go into the gym and feel good. Thank you so much.
I'm sorry to send a rather random e-mail but just wanted to let you know that your website is the by far the best exercise, health behaviour etc website I have ever seen. I have spent the past 4-5 hours reading the different areas... almost getting lost but more engrossed within each topics. My father is a big weight training fan, ACSM qualified (most likely expired now!), ex examiner and lecturer, MSc Exercise and Health Behaviour and ex Amatuer BB... your site also validates everything he's ever told me about technique, common myths etc... Many thanks and all the best,
You have created a very good website with an enormous content! I like the well-arranged, simple style and the strong use of hyperlinks.
Nico Sperling (Germany)
ExRx.net is a phenomenal resource!
This is the best web site that i have ever seen. It provides a wealth of information for work outs. A treasure chest for weight training enthusiasts.
