What FMI Guild Alumni Are Saying

Frank Jones JrAgency Sports and Fitness Model
FMI "Is The one-stop shop" for all of your questions to become a brand or a working fitness model and talent. Not only are you gaining knowledge about the industry, you are right in the mix of the industry bumping elbows with top talents, photographers, magazines, editors and more. The networking is the best around hands down. I've made some of my best life-long friends through FMI.When I first learned of FMI, I made plans to attend the 2009 Fall conference. Somehow I had a mix up in my dates and missed the conference. I watch how careers of some of the attendees blossomed in short time after attending and that's when I signed up for 2010. I have never made a better investment in my career.I am very glad I chose FMI early in my career because I learned many things about the industry and more that not many people get to learn. This information and more comes from people who are doing and have done it (first-hand).

I wish FMI had been around when I started in the fitness industry. To get valuable information to help you get ahead in the entertainment business under 1 roof is priceless! I would recommend it to anyone desiring to have a career in the fitness industry!
Stephanie RushNASM Certified Personal Trainer
For anyone who is interested in building a successful business in the fitness industry, I highly recommend you attend the Fall Conference in October. The FMI Alumni consists of some of the top fitness personalities in the industry. This conference teaches you every aspect from business development, branding, copyright laws, social media, photoshoot and magazine submission, and so much more. The alumni alone speaks volumes.

If Fitness is truly your passion and your looking to make a living at it, you need to have the tools and the skills todo so.FMI changed my whole outlook when I attended 3 years ago, and I have attended every year since. Do not miss this opportunity!!
Loni WIllison-JacksonHolistic Nutrition Advocate
I've gone to two FMI events and each one I've learned new information. They teach you the ins and outs of turning yourself into a successful business. The knowledge and encouragement I've gained from FMI is priceless and has really helped me focus on what I want.
Lauren McBridePersonal trainer, life coach and holistic nutrition specialist
I've had the blessing of being involved with FMI since the beginning. The knowledge, wisdom, and insider information you get from the FMI events are unlike anything else out there and it has led me to a very fruitful career. It is the way to launch your fitness dreams into a reality. I'm now excited to be an ambassador of FMI! They are ever-evolving and there’s always more to learn!

I feel FMI fueled the fire in me 2 years ago...It gave me the knowledge I needed to get my foot in the door and follow through with using the titles and platforms I have created by competing.My relationship with the creators of FMI has been constant because they have mentored me through and out the last few years. I feel blessed and grateful I was able to attend FMI when I did and not waste time searching for my big break or not knowing where to go next or what to do. I am in full control of my success....:-).
Amber DunfordPersonal Training Specialist (PTS), CanFitPro
FMI is a training resource unlike any other. Prior to attending my first FMI conference, I had very little direction of what I wanted to achieve in this industry. FMI opened my eyes to a myriad of possibilities and more importantly, provided HOW I could pursue those possibilities. What I gained from FMI was a solid foundation for moving forward and achieving my goals, as well as a network of friends from around the globe.
Natalie LermaMedical Sales
FMI gave me the tools to set forth my dreams. The lasting relationships I've made through FMI, have brought me many opportunities in just a year. The investment is worth it if you are willing to invest in your career.
Morgan WoolardMiss USA 2010 Runner Up
I love FMI! I've been extremely impressed by the closeness of the group. It's a family. A family fights for one another, a family has the other's back and encourages and motivates in any way possible. A family wants to see the other succeed. That's FMI. FMI does an amazing job at assisting its members in being strong, bold and courageous human beings. FMI practices what they preach. They believe in being physically resilient, mentally strong and emotionally optimistic in any situation and as we all pursue our careers. FMI teaches much of what I have learned along my journey--Things like how adversity breeds character and that to be challenged in life is inevitable, but to be defeated is optional. FMI is an incredibly special organization and group of people. They authentically invest in you, challenge you and believed in you.
Jill ColemanMS Health Nutrition, Owner of The Metabolic Effect
As both an FMI alum (2010) and FMI presented (2012), I can speak from both perspectives. FMI is creating an amazing product for a demand that is strong, but also needs guidance. The professional support, insight and education they offer cannot be found anywhere else. They bring in the biggest names in the Fitness Modeling industry to display all angles and help fitness models take control of their careers to see that the sky’s the limit. FMI is a company about creating possibilities for individuals—I dig that!
Robyn BaldwinPersonal Training Specialist (PTS), CanFitPro , Certified Spinning® Instructor
FMI is a business resource and family combined. At my first conference I learned how to properly set goals, monetize my fitness passion and brand myself. I’m a proud graduate of FMI 2010, FMI 2011 and Canada FMI June 2012. At each conference I’ve learned something different and new. I was able to get great photos that I utilize as part of my personal marketing portfolio. However, I learned more about how to know that I’m worth more than what the industry equates fitness models too and I’m learning how to adapt and evolve as my skills and knowledge grow. The network of business people, models, photographers and talents is something that inspires me daily and provides a support system you can bounce ideas off of and share tips and tricks with and collaborate on projects with.

FMI truly has changed my LIFE and I 100% believe that. Before I competed in September I had know idea even what FMI was or what it entailed nothing. As one of my prizes I was blessed to be able to attend one of their conferences and trust me talk about a whirlwind of information LOL. I learned so much from not only the speakers but the others that attended as well.FMI has taken what I thought I wanted and basically magnified it times 10. I learned how to BRAND myself as a business. Since September and attending one of the conferences in October, I signed with an agency, booked 2 fitness campaign’s, a sketchers commercial and have appeared on 3 magazine covers with another coming out as well as my eBook and website.I truly believe that none of that could have been possible without the knowledge I learned from FMI. I learned to not only to set goals for myself but to execute them only through the knowledge provided by branding, marketing, and promoting. FMI is a business source but also a family I have never been amongst a team of alums that not only are true to their ...

FMI has proven to be a comprehensive outlet, learning platform and networking engine for individuals seeking to transition from their roles as athletic or beauty “talent(s)” into fitness and entertainment industry professionals. What this means, specifically, is that practical application trumps perceived expertise, every time. It is not enough to have the “build” or to look the “part.” What Gary Augustine Warren and Clark Bartram have created is a formal yet familial educational space --both in conference settings and online-- that is built upon tenets of collaboration and diversification. It is simultaneously career changing and career fulfilling and I'm so proud to be a part of the FMI family!
Natalie JillFitness & Nutrition Gluten-Free Expert,
I have always been a go-getter who goes after goals and not only catches them, but NAILS them. I decided about a year and 1/2 ago that I wanted to leave corporate america and take on the fitness world. My first step was turning to the social media sites and learning what other successful people who once had the same ambition did. Immediately FMI kept popping up. I think I may have been the FIRST person to register for last Octobers workshop! What FMI did for me was give me a forum to network with other fitness personalities, top photographers, etc. I can't say that it was one lecture, one segment or one person who helped me via FMI but the connections and networking that ignited the brainstorming within my own head to make things happen... I am thankful to FMI for giving me a forum to fine tune my goals.
