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).

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.
ISSA provides its students with relevant science in health-fitness-wellness information and strategies to succeed in our growing and competitive industry.
ISSA definitely proved themselves above and beyond. I definitely received more than I expected and absolutely excited to take more courses.
ISSA has taught me how to adapt various teaching methods to suit clients learning needs, allowing me to create healthy environments for teaching.
The staff was very helpful also and very nice if I had a question about anything they were always there to help me out.
I am a certified personal trainer. Now I am free to make money doing what I love more than anything, helping others reach the happy, healthy state that I have.
The education I received will put me above my competition and has provided me to the tools to helps other meet their personal fitness goals.
ISSA provides a good educational platform to start a career as a fitness trainer.
I'm so happy and proud that I chose this institute for my study to the CFT because their material gave me a lot of information and experience that I didn't know it before.
Of my now 25 coaching certifications, I was super impressed with how in-depth and thorough the ISSA SSC is.
ISSA has given me new knowledge and helped me become a more confident and skilled instructor for seniors.
The ISSA courses are wonderful. I love being able to work at my own pace. They have so many certifications to choose from. ISSA has really helped take my career to the next level.
Did my research and found out that not only is ISSA a reputable certification, they also are willing to help you succeed after you get certified.
