While not incorporated in the title of the course, quickness is a component of many sports.

Help Clients set Realistic New Year’s Weight Resolutions
With the beginning of the New Year comes new year resolutions. This means that clients will start to pour in, expecting you to work your trainer magic and transform them from their holiday shell into Michael Phelps or Ronda Rousey within a matter of weeks. While this may be possible if they are already well on their way, it’s likely that their new year’s weight loss goals will not be made in the amount of time expected.
We’re fairly close to launching our two new certifications:
Speed, Agility and Strength Training Specialist (coming soon)
Certified Strength Training Specialist (coming soon)

Featured Trainer: Amber Stone
For some people, healthy choices come after a sporadic life change or even a rude awakening. But for others, practically every day of their lives was centered around a well-balanced lifestyle.
Trends don’t always stick around which makes it difficult to know what to pick up on and what to let lie. Shoulder pads? No, thank you! Skinny jeans? Yes, please! Like in the hair and fashion industries, fad diets and health trends flood the fitness market and then leave a few poor souls crushed in their receding wake.
How Becoming a Senior Fitness Instructor Will Put You at the Top of the Fitness Industry
Every year the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) publishes a forecast of rising fitness trends. In 2015 one of the biggest indicators of significant movement in the fitness industry was the sharp increase in older client participation in fitness programs as an essential component of physician-recommended longevity health regimens. In other words, professional medical advice for seniors is starting to concentrate heavily on exercise.
Choosing a Personal Training Certification
Are you passionate about health and fitness? Do you find yourself thinking or talking about diet and exercise almost on a daily basis? Do you have a passion for helping others? Or, have you recently completed your own weight loss journey and you’d like to share your knowledge and experiences with others? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, a career as a Certified Personal Trainer may be right for you.
