I am so impressed by the level of professionalism and thoroughness that ISSA offers to trainees.
The ISSA has not only helped me to become a better athlete and aspiring trainer but more importantly a better person.
The amount of knowledge in the textbook is really satisfying for someone who’s interested in both fitness and the sciences of the human body, and who’s willing to learn about the relationships between them.

I have stayed recertified with ISSA because it holds high standards to its trainers and is a highly recognized organization.
With the knowledge, I've gained from the program. I feel confident to go into the work as a personal trainer now, and to start this phase in my life.
Of my now 25 coaching certifications, I was super impressed with how in-depth and thorough the ISSA SSC is.
I do not believe there is another certifying organization that has the background, integrity, caring and compassion that the ISSA has...
Thanks to ISSA, I am able to compete and win in bodybuilding competitions despite my day job, and I am honored to help others achieve their personal health aspirations amid their busy schedules.
My experiences with ISSA have led me to be a very successful and respected Personal Trainer and I love Personal Training!
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.
Personally, I would recommend it to a lot of people. I learn a lot of new things and ways you can train somebody that I'm ready to use the stuff I learned to better people lives.
I learned so much about what it takes to be a trainer. The program covers tons of information, but it was manageable and very useful and relevant.
From the start, ISSA provided everything I needed to study, practice and qualify for a personal trainer's certification.
ISSA helped me earn the credentials necessary to ensure that I can give people like Eric Vanwagner all the tools they need to continue their journey back to normal function.
