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.
With ISSA guidance and textbooks, I have upgraded my knowledge to another level and I feel this by seeing big changes in my clients & myself!
The ISSA has changed my outlook on training clients.
As a busy fitness professional having ISSA as a resource is golden.
I have already recommended ISSA to people who have reached out to me inquiring about my satisfaction and thoughts and I will continue to do so.
I've always been passionate about fitness, and ISSA gave me tools to build a knowledge base that I can continue to add to.

The ISSA program provided me with the flexibility to achieve my certification while maintaining a full time career, being a parent of two active grade school children and husband.
Thanks to ISSA, I am able to compete and win in bodybuilding competitions despite my day job, and I am honored to help others achieve their personal health aspirations amid their busy schedules.
ISSA offers lessons of real-world cases and the insights of professionals.
There is so much that I have learned in my studies, and it will be an honor and a privilege to impart this knowledge to my fellow Seniors.
When I received the course material it was more in-depth than I expected which was good! I knew I was being provided with all the knowledge I need to become the best trainer I can.
It’s been a great journey and ISSA has helped this journey and dream become a reality. The information and learning have been rewarding and beneficial in running a business and being a personal training.
It was a great experience. I enjoyed every minute of it, and i learned a lot of information that will help me in my life and with my future clients.
