I feel confident to go into the work force as a personal trainer now, and I'm excited to start this chapter in my life.
ISSA offers lessons of real-world cases and the insights of professionals.
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.
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.

Being apart of ISSA has brought me so many opportunities and will continue to do so.

ISSA provides its students with relevant science in health-fitness-wellness information and strategies to succeed in our growing and competitive industry.

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.
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.
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.
