Children’s fitness is what your missing
Without pulling punches or beating around the bush, I’m going to
give you a straight look at something today.
Why you need to become a Youth Fitness Specialist through
Do yourself a favor and read this entire post – it’s short, succinct
and very much to the point.
But the impact it could have on your career is tremendous.
Reason # 1 – Belong to Something Bigger
As a Fitness Professional and Coach, your career is very much an
Yes you have your clients and certainly you have some colleagues,
but what kind of professional support and daily inspiration do you
The hours can be very long and the pay often insignificant.
What keeps you going and motivated?
Taking on yet another client who wants to drop a ‘few pounds’ or
look ‘better in a bathing suit’ just can’t stimulate you forever.
That’s one of the primary reasons this industry has such a high

end up losing motivation all together and opt of move on.
Imagine instead feeling like this everyday –

say the IYCA Summit was a completely different experience is a

great folks on a regular basis, I left the Summit in some huge state
of awe. Another word that comes to mind is passion, there was more
passion in that room than I have ever seen or felt at any other event,
which to me means it’s real, and it’s desirable. I left the weekend with
more thoughts, plans, ideas, and ways I would implement them then
I ever knew existed"
