Gary Augustine Warren BS, ISSA-CFT, NSCA-CPT sweatisfree.com
Beginning as a staff personal trainer in 1997, Gary evolved into an independent contract trainer and eventually a wellness-focused business owner. Coming from a sports and fitness training background, he was introduced into the fitness competition scene in 2003. Shortly after, he became involved in fitness and sports event promotions and project management. In 2006, he co-founded and acts as CEO for the fitness-sports and wellness production company, Fitness and Sports Network, LLC (FAS-NET). With the company's initial production beginning as a fitness competition endeavor, it evolved into a business development service for the fitness, sports, and wellness professionals known as, "FMI Guild".
The FMI Guild's focus is to equip and qualify members for multiple business and/or employment options. Gary serves as the executive director for the FMI Guild production. Gary had the honor of beginning his career as a instructor and trainer working in 3 collegiate wellness/sports settings, (California State University-Long Beach, UCLA, and the University of Oklahoma). From there, he moved into the private sector and continues to operate between the Oklahoma City and Los Angeles metros . He is a certified fitness instructor and personal trainer through ISSA and NSCA, in addition to earning a Bachelor's degree in Health and Sports Science from the University of Oklahoma.
A business plan is a written plan detailing a business' entire, "body of work" or operations. When done correctly, it contains components such as its business legal structure, current assets, future earnings projections, the target market(s), weaknesses and strengths, its existence for commerce, amongst other things. Creating a business plan can be a daunting task. This workshop will break down business plan writing into 10 criterion points. In addition, tools that can assist in writing and monitoring the plan will be listed and discussed.
The knowledge that I received has been extremely helpful in my own weight loss journey where I have lost more than 100 lbs.
The course was demanding, and required a lot of work, study and effort but this is what separates ISSA from the rest. I would proudly recommend ISSA!
The ISSA gave me a great knowledge of fitness programming, movement screening and nutrition.
I say this as a current high school Teacher and Coach. They truly educate you on the various topics regarding human health and physiology and the way it responds to exercise and diet.
The site is very easy to navigate, the content is very educational and flows smoothly, I receive help quickly when I have a question.
ISSA has brought a strong root into my life that keeps leading me towards success.
Their courses work well with my very busy schedule. ISSA's support team has always answered any questions in a timely manner whether it by phone or email.
I simply have not ever enjoyed a certification as much as I did this one. This is by far my favorite and I thought the entire program was very well worded and engaging.
Fitness is very important to me, and getting the certification makes that better.
What I loved most was the final exam not just a multiple choice exam but an exam that made me think, challenged me, but also had me prove myself from a practical stand point!
I have had and continue to have a great experience with the staff at ISSA headquarters. They have always been super friendly and helpful.
ISSA provides its students with relevant science in health-fitness-wellness information and strategies to succeed in our growing and competitive industry.
