Youth Fitness Certification Seminar In New York.
Manhattan is a great place.
I just got back from a 3-day jaunt through this fantastic
part of the U.S. – I spoke at the Town Sports International
And as I mentioned to you last week, I was also asked to offer
a pre-conference ‘Level 1 – Youth Fitness Certification’
seminar to all interested TSI employees.
So this past Friday, Dr. Kwame Brown and myself spent 7 hours
teaching 56 eager Fitness Professionals all about the
IYCA training system and protocols.
And once again, it was to rave reviews.
Now I don’t say that to sound cocky or arrogant at all.
Just a point of reference that shows how much this
industry is changing.
Assessments are still important.
Programming is still on demand.
Group Training specifics are a constant topic of interest.
But by far and away, the niche of youth fitness and
sport training has become the ‘thing’ Fitness Professionals
most want to know about.
And for good reason.
It’s the fastest growing market in this industry.
For Trainers who earn just above the poverty level (which
is most of us), an emerging and untapped market is a
Especially a market whose demographic is in dire need
of help and face a tremendous crisis.
56 Fitness Professionals got certified through the IYCA
Another 103 came to my two seminars the very next day.
That’s a grand total of 159 new or soon-to-be-new Members
of the IYCA.
We are the fastest growing organization in this industry.
Because we service the fastest growing market.
It’s a perfect match.
An organization who will give you every training and
business tool necessary to succeed in a market that is
both vast an untapped.
Here’s an email I received from one of the Fitness
Professionals who was in my audience this past weekend –
“I just wanted to give you a big hug after your lecture and
ask if you could clone yourself so you could be in more
places at one time… Thank you for what you have done and
your wonderful attributes to the children of the world! You
are a true hero!!”
I sure do appreciate that email.
It feels good to have such an impact on people.
But bigger than that, I know that my efforts and the
efforts of the IYCA and the Youth Fitness Certification are starting to pay off.
We gain new Members daily – 159 this past weekend alone.
And we are building a virtual army of dedicated and
highly trained professionals to combat what has become
a virtual epidemic worldwide.
You know, another audience member of mine asked me an
interesting question after one of talks this past weekend
that I wanted to share with you.
She came up to me and said this –
“I’ve been thinking about becoming certified as a Youth
Fitness Specialist for a few months now. Cut to the chase
for me…. Why should I?”
“Interesting question” I replied.
“My answer is simple. Why wouldn’t you?”
Quite simply, untapped markets don’t stay
untapped for very long.
Savvy (and successful) professionals know when to act
and take advantage of a market trend while its on the
Not too long from now, their will be ‘Youth Fitness
Specialists’ by the thousands all over the world.
And your opportunity to become the first and best
in your community will be gone forever.
Isn’t $247 and a money back guarantee if you aren’t
satisfied worth the risk?
