I say this as a current high school Teacher and Coach. They truly educate you on the various topics regarding human health and physiology and the way it responds to exercise and diet.
The course was demanding, and required a lot of work, study and effort but this is what separates ISSA from the rest. I would proudly recommend ISSA!
ISSA has taught me how to adapt various teaching methods to suit clients learning needs, allowing me to create healthy environments for teaching.
I have taken some other classes through some other organizations and I have found that my ISSA training has given me a wealth of knowledge of the science of fitness and how to apply it for best results for myself and my clients!
ISSA has given me new knowledge and helped me become a more confident and skilled instructor for seniors.
ISSA has brought a strong root into my life that keeps leading me towards success.
I'm so happy and proud that I chose this institute for my study to the CFT because their material gave me a lot of information and experience that I didn't know it before.
Thank you once again to the staff at ISSA for giving me this opportunity to enroll into your program and making me feel welcome. I can't wait to take you guys on my next fitness journey in life!
The International Sports Sciences Association was easily the best choice I've ever made towards a career in helping change people's lives.
ISSA was one of the only names that was recognized right away and was viewed by all the gyms I called as a very knowledgeable and reputable association.
I have been training this 13-year-old girl and it's been more than 8 to 9 months. Her parents were extremely happy about her body language, and she has improved a lot in endurance/stamina.
During the process of certification, I was able to redesign my fitness approach and started creating my own plans...

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.
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.
