"Customer service was exceptional. Course material carefully put together which makes it easy to understand. I'd definitely recommend ISSA to anyone interested in pursuing Personal Training Certification or even just for your own knowledge."
"This was the best experience! I was able to take all of my quizzes and even the final exam at home online. This program made it easy for me to care for my newborn and still get all of my work done each day."
"ISSA staff was incredibly helpful. I had a crisis going on and lost my job, all the staff responded so quickly. NASM always had at least a 20 minute wait on the phone, with ISSA, a nice operator answers and transfers me right away to the right person to help. I will DEFINITELY get more certs and would DEFINITELY recommend you."
"This is the fifth certification I have completed through ISSA and am looking forward to the next! I am very happy with the amount of time available for me to complete my studies as I have a very busy schedule. My Success Coach is always at the ready for any questions I may have and the online lectures are a great help."
"The amount of knowledge given by ISSA's text and faculty was phenomenal. I truly feel I have been given the tools to be a successful Personal Trainer, and I believe I was expected to demonstrate them during the class in a way that will prepare me for future clients. I am fully satisfied and excited to have completed Certified Personal Trainer with ISSA."
