Fitness Addicts – they come in all shapes and sizes; the endurance athlete, the bodybuilder, the sprinter, the yoga fanatic, the powerlifter, the cross-fitter, the bikini model, the tennis player. The list doesn’t end there. While it’s true that the global obsession for a fit lifestyle is divided into countless sub-sections, there’s ONE common thread that ties it all together. The entire fitness community shares a thirst for knowledge, a desire to understand supplementation, nutrition and its infinite powers.
I’d like to tell you about an organization called the International Society of Sports Nutrition, a non-profit society dedicated to promoting the science and application of evidence-based sports nutrition and supplementation. Over the years I’ve enjoyed friendships with a handful of ISSN members, including Dr. Jose Antonio and Dr. Doug Kalman, two of the men who helped co-found the organization back in 2003.
Over the years the ISSN has grown into one of the most respected communities of nutrition & supplement minded experts in the world. Each year, the ISSN holds its annual convention, a gathering of many of the most respected members of the sports nutrition community.
And here’s the cool part. You don’t have to be a genius to attend!!!
If you’re as serious about fitness as you say you are, it might be worth joining the ISSN. Their annual convention is the weekend of June 9 – 11 in Clearwater, Florida. I’m also pleased to report that DigitalMuscle.com will serve as the media sponsor of this year’s convention!
Here at Digital Muscle the goal is to showcase the wisdom of the best & brightest members of the fitness industry. Keep an eye out for some great new contributions from our extended ISSN family in the near future……right here at the fitness industry’s media hub!
I hope to see some of you in Clearwater at the convention. As my brainy friends like to say, “Prepare to get your learn on!” – Here’s a link to the ISSN Website.
