What is an ISSA Master Trainer?

What is an ISSA Master Trainer?

One of the biggest questions new personal trainers have is how do I advance my career? How do I demonstrate to the world that I am among the best?

ISSA's Master Trainer program is designed to answer those questions by fully equipping graduates with a comprehensive foundation of both the science and practice of personal training, fitness nutrition, and fitness programming for special populations.

The curriculum prepares graduates to properly:

  • Assess, train, and motivate the general population
  • Coach clients on fitness nutrition
  • Guide clients with chronic conditions
  • Coach athletes, youth, and seniors

Successful professionals in the medical and health communities need specializations to grow their practices and their impact in the world. As a personal trainer you can grow your practice and attract more clients at higher rates by demonstrating your knowledge, skills and abilities.
