I recently spoke at the Exercise Science Lab at Nova Southeastern University (NSU) via my colleague and friend Dr.Jose Antonio. Dr. Antonio is also Chief Executive Officer of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN). The ISSN is worth joining for those looking to read the latest in research relevant to all things sports nutrition as well as other worthwhile functions.
I spoke to a graduate class which was part how to “make it” in the fitness industry, and part discussion on my review paper on supplements for the military. My focus was to stress that although education as an essential component to success in the fitness industry, being aggressive, being creative, and thinking outside the box others will always attempt to place you in, was key to success in my view. Don’t climb that futile ladder I say, throw a rope over the wall and bypass that stupid ladder!

FYI, My talk before this was at the Performance & Physique Enhancement Laboratory at the University of South Florida (USF), was of a similar topic and discussed HERE if interested.
