ISSA has taught me how to adapt various teaching methods to suit clients learning needs, allowing me to create healthy environments for teaching.
ISSA is one of the most respected certifications out there and in my opinion the most comprehensive.
The content is informative and the support is endless.
The CPT course provided by the ISSA is the best I've ever experienced.
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.
With ISSA guidance and textbooks, I have upgraded my knowledge to another level and I feel this by seeing big changes in my clients & myself!
I was so overwhelmed at first but chatted with a master trainer on the website and they gave me some wonderful study tips that built my confidence back up. I actually finished a month early.
ISSA helped to guide me down the path toward an exciting future in the fitness industry!
The resources ISSA provides (both in hard copy and online) such as the study guide, the coursebook, the chapter summary videos, the exercise videos, and the question board are all very valuable tools...
As the coursework progressed I began seeing my clients through a different perspective and i firmly believe that ISSA is responsible to give me this sense of professionalism and belonging!
I needed a online option that would meet my needs so I could study and also work, the course more than met my needs and expectations.
Now, I can confidently provide them with knowledgeable fitness information that I have gained from my own fitness journey, and my training provided by ISSA.
For all those people who are looking for an online certification, I can assure you that ISSA is the best out there
I have stayed recertified with ISSA because it holds high standards to its trainers and is a highly recognized organization.
