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.
They have been tremendously supportive over the years and helped me to build a very profitable personal training practice!
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.
It’s been a great journey and ISSA has helped this journey and dream become a reality. The information and learning have been rewarding and beneficial in running a business and being a personal training.
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!
I found it to be challenging, informative, and very current. ISSA provides great communication and they are always there from start to finish.
I’ve been searching for the best training a company has to offer for years, ISSA really has it all.
Andrea De Persio
I have learned to change the lifestyle of others in a positive way from good nutrition to the proper training techniques and also to help improve my overall physique.
ISSA offers lessons of real-world cases and the insights of professionals.
I had taken one or two other courses by different organizations before and they were nowhere near as thorough and in-depth as this one.
ISSA has remained to be among the leaders of the fitness industry and is still an organization that is nationally recognized and has a good reputation.
I was Impress with the high level of clarity of the material and the lectures.
The ISSA has changed my outlook on training clients.
