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.
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!
I just finished my newest certification of Specialist in Exercise Therapy, and that ISSA was there to help me successfully pass the exam with confidence. I highly recommend the ISSA to fellow trainers, and to trainers, we hire for our studio!
I was Impress with the high level of clarity of the material and the lectures.
The studies were easy to understand and never swayed from information actually necessary for personal training.
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.
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...
My goal is to motivate and inspire, to love and be loved, and to help people obtain a healthy mind, body and spirit.
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.
ISSA gave me the opportunity to work independently to study, complete work, and gain knowledge on becoming a personal trainer.
ISSA has remained to be among the leaders of the fitness industry and is still an organization that is nationally recognized and has a good reputation.
