I just finished my newest certification of Specialist in Exercise Therapy, and that ISSA was there to help me successfully pass the exam with confidence. I highly recommend the ISSA to fellow trainers, and to trainers, we hire for our studio!
I found it to be challenging, informative, and very current. ISSA provides great communication and they are always there from start to finish.
I just completed the Bodybuilding Course through the ISSA. Josh Bryant, the author, is a well-known strength coach and strength athlete. He delivers a course that provides plenty of time-tested bodybuilding methods mixed with modern application.
I wanted to start my career in fitness, so I opted for ISSA. I have done certification in fitness training and scored 95.7% in it.
ISSA has helped make my dreams com true of being a personal trainer and helping people become better versions of themselves.
The ISSA program design is excellent and caters to many learning styles. After taking this course I feel that I have rightfully earned my title and I know I will be properly equipped to help people change their lives in a healthy and positive way.
Their courses work well with my very busy schedule. ISSA's support team has always answered any questions in a timely manner whether it by phone or email.
