I have had and continue to have a great experience with the staff at ISSA headquarters. They have always been super friendly and helpful.
ISSA taught me how to develop a nutrition and exercise program that I could sustain for the rest of my life.
ISSA has changed my life for the better and by changing my life ISSA has equipped me with the tools and support to help whoever may be looking for guidance pertaining to their health and fitness endeavors.
ISSA helped to guide me down the path toward an exciting future in the fitness industry!
I am extremely happy with the course material and the support staff at ISSA was always there to assist me whenever I had a question with either course.
The best part about ISSA, is when you call, you talk to a real person. They are quick to respond, answer all of your questions and help guide you to be successful.
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...
Being apart of ISSA has brought me so many opportunities and will continue to do so.
The book is well illustrated and supported with diagrams and photos helping to clarify the information in each unit.
Having the backing of ISSA I feel confident that I am helping to change people's lives through fitness and I am very passionate about that! I am excited to meet new clients and help them start their fitness journeys.
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.
With the website, blogs and continuing education that ISSA offers I know I will continue to improve as a personal trainer.
The course is very comprehensive, the six learning experiences on the final were fun to do and the support was great.
