What is an ISSA Fitness Coach?

What is an ISSA Fitness Coach?

An ISSA Fitness Coach has a deeper level of expertise than a personal trainer. A Coach specializes in a defined area of fitness and has the training and education to train specific modalities or targeted populations, or both. For example, an ISSA Fitness Coach with Senior Fitness Specialization will have a deeper level of expertise focused on how to coach a senior client to reach their goals given specific limitations or concerns associated with their stage of life. This combination of personal trainer certification and specialization is a powerful step in a trainer's career progression.
