The ISSA Personal Trainer course explained every chapter very clearly and covered so many areas of health, nutrition, and fitness.
The CPT course provided by the ISSA is the best I've ever experienced.
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
With a great staff, and the connections you make with other ISSA trainers online, It feels more like a family than a company.
The ISSA has not only helped me to become a better athlete and aspiring trainer but more importantly a better person.
ISSA made it so easy for me to acquire my certificate as a Certified Personal Trainer, and I would also like to add that the course material was put together very well for me to understand.
We are taught to be the best in the training industry, given the knowledge to meet all phases of individual goal demands and putting them into a systematic realization.
ISSA's course material was extremely detail orientated and covered every aspect of becoming a personal trainer.
They have been tremendously supportive over the years and helped me to build a very profitable personal training practice!
The exam was very comprehensive and the fact that it was self-paced made it very easy for a full time father like myself.
ISSA was a great school and has taught me many things about how to do this and the correct ways.
During the process of certification, I was able to redesign my fitness approach and started creating my own plans...
