The ISSA is one of the only organizations I’ve worked with that has had nothing but encouragement to give to me and that’s exactly what I needed.
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.
...it was the most comprehensive program with a solid foundation in all the aspects of nutrition that I needed for my practice.
ISSA has helped make my dreams com true of being a personal trainer and helping people become better versions of themselves.
Not only was the program extremely informative, but the final exam was challenging and really put what I had learned to test.
This has changed my perspective on what needs to be done to compete and win!
ISSA's course material was extremely detail orientated and covered every aspect of becoming a personal trainer.
The content is informative and the support is endless.
