Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) August 03, 2012
Youth sports training organization the International Youth Conditioning Association has long offered training courses and certifications to youth fitness professionals across the world. Now, the organization is offering the IYCA Insiders membership for a trial period of 30 days at a price of $1.
“Originally, the IYCA started offering youth fitness certifications because we noticed a lack of regulation within the industry,” IYCA co-owner Nick Berry says. “While the certifications have been successful at improving training, youth fitness professionals need more. That’s why we created IYCA Insiders.”
In an effort to ramp up its support of youth fitness business owners, the IYCA is offering IYCA Insiders as an attempt to create a community of youth fitness professionals who can share their insights into coaching and running youth fitness businesses.
“Over the last several years, the fitness industry has seen a remarkable rise in the prominence of kids fitness programs and youth sports,” says Berry’s business partner and IYCA CEO Pat Rigsby.
“I am extremely proud of the fact that over the last decade, the IYCA has made a lot of progress toward revolutionizing the youth fitness and sports performance industries,” Rigsby continues. “But IYCA Insiders goes beyond training. We think of it as a one stop solution for becoming a better youth fitness coach and business person.”
Rigsby and Berry promise that IYCA Insiders will offer a glimpse at what some of the best in the field are doing. It will provide tools and templates to make running a youth fitness business or implementing programs easier.
“It's important for you to connect with other motivated, like-minded professionals to share ideas and network,” Berry says. “That’s how innovation and success happen. By connecting people to spread ideas, we are hoping to once again revolutionize youth fitness.”
Each month the IYCA Insiders membership offers training tips from fitness leaders from throughout the world, private interviews with industry experts, access to an IYCA members forum, and much more.
“In the fitness industry, credentials mean a lot,” says Rigsby. “But when it comes to working with children, the IYCA is attempting to go above and beyond.”
The IYCA is now offering the IYCA Insiders program at a trial membership discount of $1 for 30 days. For more information, visit: http://iyca.org/insiders
