The process of constructing a business plan is a necessary reality check for fitness professionals wanting to go into business for themselves. Among other things, the completed business plan provides the necessary foundation for obtaining financing. By taking an objective look at your business plans, identifying areas of weakness and strength become much clearer and easier to acknowledge. You will realize critical components that may have been overlooked, realize problems and establish plans to meet business objectives.
Ninety percent of new businesses fail in the first two years. Failure is often attributed to a lack of planning and objective review. To enhance your success, it is important that you utilize your business plan. A well-constructed business plan can turn a failing operation into a success.
"The business plan is a necessity. If a Fitness Professional cannot outline the objectives
clearly enough to organize a business plan, he or she is already behind when getting started."
-Samuel F. Hirschberg, Director of Business Development
International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA)
Despite the critical importance of a business plan, many fitness professionals drag their feet when it comes to preparing one. They argue that they just don't have enough time. But just as a builder won't begin construction without a blueprint, an eager fitness professional with a great business idea shouldn't rush into new ventures without a business plan.

It was a great experience. I enjoyed every minute of it, and i learned a lot of information that will help me in my life and with my future clients.
ISSA's course material was extremely detail orientated and covered every aspect of becoming a personal trainer.
I am really looking forward to helping people realize and reach their goals of becoming more healthy and physically fit, no matter their age.
I definitely recommend the ISSA on-line program to become a certified personal trainer, it's very complete and you get a lot of support along the way.

My experiences with ISSA have led me to be a very successful and respected Personal Trainer and I love Personal Training!
I have been training this 13-year-old girl and it's been more than 8 to 9 months. Her parents were extremely happy about her body language, and she has improved a lot in endurance/stamina.
After completing my CPT successfully, I can say only one thing that ISSA is really good in providing you the knowledge which is required in the fitness industry. It makes you fitness industry ready in every aspect.
I simply have not ever enjoyed a certification as much as I did this one. This is by far my favorite and I thought the entire program was very well worded and engaging.
I just completed the Bodybuilding Course through the ISSA. Josh Bryant, the author, is a well-known strength coach and strength athlete. He delivers a course that provides plenty of time-tested bodybuilding methods mixed with modern application.
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 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!
ISSA has brought a strong root into my life that keeps leading me towards success.
