Now I am a certified personal trainer. This will be my first step into the fitness world, and now, my knowledge is much greater.
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.
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 am so impressed by the level of professionalism and thoroughness that ISSA offers to trainees.
Thanks for the knowledge and opportunities to now do what I love to do.
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.
I am so overly emotional and proud that throughout these last 12 weeks of insane studies and working all the time; I finished. I can't wait to see how ISSA helps me better myself and everyone around me.
ISSA provides a good educational platform to start a career as a fitness trainer.
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.
The International Sports Sciences Association was easily the best choice I've ever made towards a career in helping change people's lives.
I found the books, videos, and online resources to be valuable. The course ware is written in an easy to understand language
ISSA has been outstanding when it comes to educating and certificating their students. The material is easy to ready, with rich content, and well structured.
