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.
ISSA was a great school and has taught me many things about how to do this and the correct ways.
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!
Now I am a certified personal trainer. This will be my first step into the fitness world, and now, my knowledge is much greater.
I was extremely impressed with the overall course and materials ISSA provided; now ISSA has truly prepared me for my future as a personal trainer!
What I loved most was the final exam not just a multiple choice exam but an exam that made me think, challenged me, but also had me prove myself from a practical stand point!
I thought I knew about Sports Science but ISSA gave me an array of Fitness and Health knowledge that I can use with clients and in life.
I have already recommended ISSA to people who have reached out to me inquiring about my satisfaction and thoughts and I will continue to do so.
They have been tremendously supportive over the years and helped me to build a very profitable personal training practice!
Fitness is very important to me, and getting the certification makes that better.
The tools and resources that ISSA provide are invaluable and will really set you apart from the rest, in this fitness industry.
As a busy fitness professional having ISSA as a resource is golden.
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...
I had the chance to discover the ISSA team, which made my dream possible, to become a certified trainer. With their outstanding vision, support and professionalism they guided me to reach the goal.
