I am so overly emotional and proud that throughout these last 12 weeks of insane studies and working all the time; I finished. I can't wait to see how ISSA helps me better myself and everyone around me.
I would recommend ISSA because this association has figured out the right mix for an extremely good learning experience while working through the process of acquiring certification.
I have been very pleased with ISSA. Whether you have a degree, or certification, what it comes down to is what you really know and learn. I will continue to re-certify with ISSA.
The studies were easy to understand and never swayed from information actually necessary for personal training.
Now, I can confidently provide them with knowledgeable fitness information that I have gained from my own fitness journey, and my training provided by ISSA.
ISSA never let me down and still continue to support me through my career.
To any of you out there contemplating the legitimacy of the ISSA, take it from me, it's worth it! You work at your own pace and on your own time
I do not believe there is another certifying organization that has the background, integrity, caring and compassion that the ISSA has...
ISSA is number one in my book, and I would highly, highly suggest anyone interested in this career field GO WITH ISSA!
My goal is to motivate and inspire, to love and be loved, and to help people obtain a healthy mind, body and spirit.
I say this as a current high school Teacher and Coach. They truly educate you on the various topics regarding human health and physiology and the way it responds to exercise and diet.
Personally, I would recommend it to a lot of people. I learn a lot of new things and ways you can train somebody that I'm ready to use the stuff I learned to better people lives.
