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 site is very easy to navigate, the content is very educational and flows smoothly, I receive help quickly when I have a question.
The book is well illustrated and supported with diagrams and photos helping to clarify the information in each unit.
The ISSA is one of the only organizations I’ve worked with that has had nothing but encouragement to give to me and that’s exactly what I needed.
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.
...it was the most comprehensive program with a solid foundation in all the aspects of nutrition that I needed for my practice.
ISSA has helped make my dreams com true of being a personal trainer and helping people become better versions of themselves.
Not only was the program extremely informative, but the final exam was challenging and really put what I had learned to test.
This has changed my perspective on what needs to be done to compete and win!
ISSA's course material was extremely detail orientated and covered every aspect of becoming a personal trainer.
The content is informative and the support is endless.
The ISSA program design is excellent and caters to many learning styles. After taking this course I feel that I have rightfully earned my title and I know I will be properly equipped to help people change their lives in a healthy and positive way.
They provide you with the academic knowledge and the real world skills you need to be a success.
