Peter and Kathie Davis. No offense intended to you, however, the fact that we have the opportunity to market and express our love and dedication to the industry on the IDEA Fitness Connect site, as a consequence of their hard work, shows me personally that they are leaders.
I personally don’t think anything is “wrong” with whom you admire and chose to learn from as far as your professional development is concerned. From my perspective what is important is that you are growing and continually putting yourself in a position to provide safe and effective fitness/exercise programming to the public.
Peter and Kathie Davis, like the individuals you mentioned who are your mentors, recognized a need that needed to be filled and created this platform as well as certification courses that we can avail ourselves to if we choose to. We all benefit from their far-sightedness.
