Since first launching this site I have literally heard from thousands of you that you want a discussion forum to share ideas on matters that are important to your career. And in response to your requests, we are rolling out mini discussions across the site.
What is a Mini Discussion?
A mini discussion starts when one person submits a comment on one of our personal trainer web pages. Other people can read the comment, rate it and submit their own comments about what the first person said. It kind of snowballs from there.
