Dr. Hugh D. Allen stated in USA Today that 30 million of today's youth in the US will die of heart disease as adults. A wide variety of additional health problems have all been linked to childhood obesity and lack of fitness in today's youth. As a result, youth fitness training is one of the fastest-growing segments in the health club and fitness industry and ISSA's Youth Fitness Certification course teaches proven techniques that will treat and prevent obesity before it causes a lifetime of health problems.
It is important to remember that children are not miniature adults. You cannot use the same personal training methods or motivational techniques on growing youth as you do with mature adults. Specific knowledge of the different anatomical, physiological, and emotional requirements of today's youth are fundamental in addressing the specific needs of kids. And ISSA's Youth Fitness Certification course helps you show kids the right way to develop a winning attitude, make them better athletes, and improve their confidence.
Not only can you change lives, you can earn a great living or substantially increase your current income by gaining a specialized certification in youth fitness. The gift of fitness is one that many parents will readily give their children, especially if they know how important fitness is to a young life.
The 284 page "Youth Fitness Trainer" course textbook is complemented by a workbook and study guide with detailed learning objectives to help you get the most out of your studies. In addition to these materials you'll also receive our 139 page "Fitness for Kids and Teens" supplemental reading guide.
