Features online exam, instant grading and automatic certificate generation after completion of this course. As you know, a good exercise program is only half the story as far as fitness is concerned. Equally important is proper nutrition. Often, people base their nutritional needs on government recommended "RDA's." Thousands of research studies have proven that "RDA's" are barely adequate for sedentary existence, much less then an active lifestyle. If you want to eat for maximum health and vitality, you will have to transcend the minimum requirements.
What is Specific Nutrition?
We need to eat to live. This fact is simple; however, for athletes and serious fitness buffs, it is not so simple. To engage in rigorous sports and exercise the appropriate caloric intake and nutritional ratios become a key factor.
"Eat a healthy balance of foods from all four food groups." We've heard this for years but is it enough to devise a well defined and periodized plan to maximize the benefits of your vigorous routine? Probably not. There are six categories of nutrients (water, vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins, and carbohydrates) that can cause differing effects depending how they are manipulated. Obviously, weightlifters have different needs than soccer players and a serious fat loss client has different needs than a football player. The "Specific Nutrition" CEU is designed to teach you how to scientifically establish nutritional plans that work for a specific objective.
The amount of knowledge in the textbook is really satisfying for someone who’s interested in both fitness and the sciences of the human body, and who’s willing to learn about the relationships between them.

I have stayed recertified with ISSA because it holds high standards to its trainers and is a highly recognized organization.
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.
Of my now 25 coaching certifications, I was super impressed with how in-depth and thorough the ISSA SSC is.
I do not believe there is another certifying organization that has the background, integrity, caring and compassion that the ISSA has...
Thanks to ISSA, I am able to compete and win in bodybuilding competitions despite my day job, and I am honored to help others achieve their personal health aspirations amid their busy schedules.
My experiences with ISSA have led me to be a very successful and respected Personal Trainer and I love Personal Training!
ISSA made it so easy for me to acquire my certificate as a Certified Personal Trainer, and I would also like to add that the course material was put together very well for me to understand.
Personally, I would recommend it to a lot of people. I learn a lot of new things and ways you can train somebody that I'm ready to use the stuff I learned to better people lives.
I learned so much about what it takes to be a trainer. The program covers tons of information, but it was manageable and very useful and relevant.
From the start, ISSA provided everything I needed to study, practice and qualify for a personal trainer's certification.
ISSA helped me earn the credentials necessary to ensure that I can give people like Eric Vanwagner all the tools they need to continue their journey back to normal function.
