ISSA provides its students with relevant science in health-fitness-wellness information and strategies to succeed in our growing and competitive industry.
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...
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.
Being able to study at my own pace, fitting it in with my own hectic lifestyle was a huge benefit.
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.

ISSA has given me new knowledge and helped me become a more confident and skilled instructor for seniors.
With the knowledge, I've gained from the program. I feel confident to go into the work as a personal trainer now, and to start this phase in my life.
If I had questions, comments or concerns, I would call and the staff was so very helpful, I was in shock of how much support I got!
