HELP! How does a certification/training agency become accepted by IDEA?

2 Answers | Asked by Jamie Strzepek on May 01, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 06, 2013

Hi Jamie, I suspect that it is not so much a problem of acceptance but of procedure. It would be best if ANWA contact IDEA directly to find out the logistics. IDEA Health & Fitness Association 10455 Pacific Center Court San Diego, CA 92121 Phone: (858) 535-8979, ext. 7 Toll-free: (800) 99...

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 05, 2013

Hi Daya, I understand your concern about not wanting to gain weight but a broken bone usually heals in 6 to 8 weeks, and then you can get back to what you did before, doctor's clearance assuming. Why don't you use this as an opportunity to try out different exercises like mat Pilates which is ...

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 03, 2013

Hi guys, I am wondering about your attitude towards people who read while exercising. You are all absolutely right: it is NOT the ideal way to work out. But before I have people not working out cardiovascularly at all, I'd run and get them a book or magazine myself. Karin Singleton www.melt...

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 03, 2013

Hi Delmar, I am not sure what you are asking. Do you mean that your name is already a registered business, and whether you can register yourself under another business name? From what I understand, you can give your business any name you want as long as it complies with state regulation. K...

Answered by Karin Singleton on May 02, 2013

Hi Sarah, I have been training a client with Asperger's syndrome for many years, and I speak from the background of this experience. To begin, let me say that the label 'retarded' or 'autistic' has really no meaning in itself. However, you may be faced with peculiarities that are beyond what i...
