IYCA Family Member Creates ‘True Youth Sports’

Program Developed to Make a Difference in youth sports & Fitness

 

Determined to make a dent in local youth obesity rates, a Brampton fitness professional is launching what he calls the city’s first fitness camp designed exclusively to help children foster a lifelong love of healthy living.

 

"Childhood obesity has reached epidemic proportions with factors such as fast food, computers, TV, video games, all contributing to the problem," said David Kittner, founder of True Youth Sports Brampton Fit Camp.

 

"Over 50 per cent of our children are overweight and almost 20 per cent are obese. We’re elated to begin offering the True Youth Sports Brampton Fit Camp program to help combat this problem and to introduce kids, ages eight to 13, to a healthy fitness lifestyle in a safe, fun, and non-intimidating format."

 

A report released by Peel Public Health earlier this year entitled "A Picture of Health" reveals 47 per cent of the Region’s 1.2 million population is overweight or obese.

 

The report findings also show that many youngsters in Peel struggle with weight as a result of lack of exercise.

 

With obesity rates among youngsters hitting dangerous levels, Kittner, a fitness expert with more than 15 years of experience, said he felt compelled to do something about it.

 

This led to the idea of introducing a proper fitness camp for children that strives to instill the importance of being active early on.

 

"It’s sad to see how many unhealthy kids there are out there," Kittner said. "The vast majority of kids today have sedentary lifestyles even if they’re participating in organized sports activities … so offering this much needed program was a no-brainer."

 

Kittner said the True Youth Sports Brampton Fit Camp training system has been developed by the world’s leading youth fitness organization, the International Youth Conditioning Association, and will be delivered by certified fitness professionals who will help motivate and inspire the kids to be active and have fun.  

 

"Our programs are designed with safety and fun in mind; if it’s not fun, kids are not going to stick with youth sports," he said.

 

 

Youth Fitness and the Success Train

Youth Fitness Keys To Success. A post by Brian Grasso

What do you think about ‘credentials’ when it comes to
our industry?

It seems to me that most professionals in our industry
look at the whole credentialing or certification
process from a few different angles:

a. Credibility of the Credentialing Body

b. Member Satisfaction

c. Cost
 

In the case of the IYCA, the credibility we have is
absolutely ‘locked’ as world-class.

And I can say that without hesitation.
 

Whenever I’m judging the credibility of any
organization, I always look at what other organizations

or esteemed professionals have to say about the
quality and content that is being presented.

 

Now, I’m not shy in saying that the IYCA has been
absolutely overrun with high praise from some of this
industries most notable figures:

 

“The knowledge and dedication of the IYCA and its
leaders have helped us to shape and deliver a robust
curriculum with broad appeal”

:: Zari Stahl – Club Industry

 

“There is not an inch of doubt that the Sports in
Action Program has become a better youth sports program

through the Brian’s work. The IYCA is invaluable”

:: Clement Chilshe – Sports in Action (Zambia)

 

“This collaboration of industry leaders combined with
the focus of guiding future leaders is what makes the
IYCA the most complete program”

:: Billy Corbett – PT on the Net

 

“The IYCA is changing the way we train youth”

:: Scott Quill – Men’s Health

 

Without going on and on, that answers the question of
our credibility, doesn’t it?

 

But what about our own Members satisfaction?

 

Is the IYCA truly appealing to fitness and sport
training professionals worldwide?

 

Do we actually make a difference in the lives of
people, or are we just adding ‘letters after their
last names’?

 

You be the judge:

“I believe you will change Youth Fitness in America”

:: Jeff O’Connor – IYCA Certified (Oklahoma)

 

“The content contained within the IYCA certification
materials provides the most technical, practical and
application education that I have EVER experienced

with any program”

:: Donovan Owens – IYCA Certified (Texas)

 

“Youth fitness is moving into the mainstream and the
first movers need to be associated with the best –
which is the IYCA”

:: Luca Hocevar – IYCA Certfied (Slovenia)

 

“I would suggest that one of the greatest decisions I
ever made in my life was to take the Youth Fitness
Certification course that you offer”

:: Bob Acton – IYCA Certified (Canada)

 

Is that the kind of loyalty and endorsement you hear
about other certification companies?

 

Not a chance.

 

The fact is we care so much about the success and
knowledge of our Members that we provide them with the
very best when it comes to education and business
knowledge.

 

Now, that leaves us with price.

 

Did you know that the IYCA is currently the most

inexpensive mainstream youth fitness certification on the market
today?

 

$197

 

That’s all it costs for our Level 1 – Youth Fitness
Specialist course.

 

Compare that to other certifications out there.

 

You’re looking at a MINIMUM of $400+.

 

And we take pride in that.

 

We feel 100% dedicated to our mission of regulating
and elevating the knowledge of professionals with
respect to youth fitness and sports training.

 

But we’re also realistic.

 

With all the quality content we provide and all the
world-class professionals we have involved in our
organization, we know without question that we
simply offer far too much to stay routed as the
lowest priced certification on the market.

 

So we’ve decided to raise the price.

 

And if you’re a savvy business person, you’ll
understand two very critical things:

 

1. The best and most worthwhile goods and services
aren’t the most inexpensive on the market. The quality
they offer is just far too great to be ‘cheap’.

 

2. More importantly, locking into the fastest growing

organization in the entire industry at as low a price
as you possibly can is absolutely essential if you
intend to make a successful career for yourself.

 

So this is your chance.

 

The IYCA ‘Level 1 – Youth Fitness Specialist’
certification is being re-priced on Tuesday September 2.

 

I have made a personal and executive decision to
keep the cost exactly where it is for the next 6 days.
$197 is as small an investment as you’ll ever have to
pay in order to become part of what you just read
in the endorsements above.

 

And if you want more proof of how important this

decision will be to your career, just re-read those
endorsements.

 

I think you’ll realize that this is a once in a
lifetime opportunity…

 

… And something you have 6 more days to take
advantage of.
