The Fitness Certification Industry

In the last two weeks we have learned that several R, I, S & T certified Z-Health trainers have joined forces and launched their own certification course. While we do not know the content of the course, we do know all of the trainers involved as avid learners and coaches. We wish them the best in their new endeavors.

On another note, we have been receiving numerous calls over the last several months asking about the RKC, CK/FMS and many other certifications. Our advice is always to do what we do: find the best and learn from them!

Pavel Tsatsouline, Gray Cook and others have outstanding reputations as researchers, coaches, athletes and, most importantly, as people of high caliber. When it comes to learning we strongly suggest that you simply consider the source, spend your money, invest the time, learn what you like and learn what you don’t like. As a company, we follow our own advice because Z-Health is about life-long education and we are constantly studying and refining every course that we teach based on research and experience.

Alan Aragon, one of our favorite nutrition researchers recently wrote on his blog:

“Disagreement leads to investigation, investigation leads to learning…One of the things that people miss is that most professionals in a given field tend to agree on the majority of fundamental principles. For example, I may disagree with some folks on the amount of fructose that can safely be incorporated into a diet, but that probably represents 10% of the whole picture, 90% of which I’d probably be preaching to the choir.”

What I most love about this statement is easily missed… “One of the things that people miss is that most professionals in a given field tend to agree on the majority of fundamental principles.” We agree with those who are doing their best to promote healthy movement, strength, and life-long athleticism in their clients. While we may all occasionally disagree on the optimal approach – this leads to learning for all.

Keep moving,
