My experiences with ISSA have led me to be a very successful and respected Personal Trainer and I love Personal Training!
The book is well illustrated and supported with diagrams and photos helping to clarify the information in each unit.
They provide you with the academic knowledge and the real world skills you need to be a success.
Although English is not my first language, I can tell you all that it was easy to assimilate all the terms and accomplish the course.
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!
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.
Of my now 25 coaching certifications, I was super impressed with how in-depth and thorough the ISSA SSC is.
The ISSA courses are wonderful. I love being able to work at my own pace. They have so many certifications to choose from. ISSA has really helped take my career to the next level.
I am really looking forward to helping people realize and reach their goals of becoming more healthy and physically fit, no matter their age.
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.
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!
I’ve been searching for the best training a company has to offer for years, ISSA really has it all.
