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).

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).

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 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.
The platform provides every tool possible and great customer support to get maximum out of the course. I would recommend to anyone who wants to become CFT and trust ISSA will provide quality resources...
ISSA has changed my life for the better and by changing my life ISSA has equipped me with the tools and support to help whoever may be looking for guidance pertaining to their health and fitness endeavors.
I’ve been searching for the best training a company has to offer for years, ISSA really has it all.

Since I have been in the fitness field for over twenty years I can truly say I have gained a lot more experience and knowledge from successfully completing the ISSA course.
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!
I loved every single page of my book. They were so informative and every topic we're in-depth.
This program gave me the foundation and the confidence I needed to pursue my dream. I would highly recommend this program to anyone hoping to take their life in a new direction at any age.
I found it to be challenging, informative, and very current. ISSA provides great communication and they are always there from start to finish.
ISSA has helped make my dreams com true of being a personal trainer and helping people become better versions of themselves.
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.
I am really looking forward to helping people realize and reach their goals of becoming more healthy and physically fit, no matter their age.
