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.
My experiences with ISSA have led me to be a very successful and respected Personal Trainer and I love Personal Training!
My ISSA certifications as a Fitness Trainer, Sports Nutrition Specialist and Strength and Conditioning Specialist has really propelled my career to where it is today.
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.
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...
The course did an outstanding job of addressing issues that arise with the training of seniors.
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!
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!
My experience has been great and the support team makes it very easy to complete the course and get back to me with answers to any questions I have very quickly.
From the start, ISSA provided everything I needed to study, practice and qualify for a personal trainer's certification.
