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.
This Strength and Conditioning Certification from ISSA gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in strength and conditioning, whether it be in the gym or outside on the field or court, with a team or an individual.
I am so overly emotional and proud that throughout these last 12 weeks of insane studies and working all the time; I finished. I can't wait to see how ISSA helps me better myself and everyone around me.
I had taken one or two other courses by different organizations before and they were nowhere near as thorough and in-depth as this one.
The ISSA gave me a great knowledge of fitness programming, movement screening and nutrition.
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.
This has changed my perspective on what needs to be done to compete and win!
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've found ISSA's to be the most qualified, useful AND helpful certifications in the business.
Fitness is very important to me, and getting the certification makes that better.
ISSA has helped make my dreams com true of being a personal trainer and helping people become better versions of themselves.
ISSA has brought a strong root into my life that keeps leading me towards success.
My ISSA certifications as a Fitness Trainer, Sports Nutrition Specialist and Strength and Conditioning Specialist has really propelled my career to where it is today.
