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.
I have had and continue to have a great experience with the staff at ISSA headquarters. They have always been super friendly and helpful.
When it came to being a trainer there wasn't any sugar coating. It was laid out for what it is in the real world in what is to be expected of you as an ISSA professional.
They provide you with the academic knowledge and the real world skills you need to be a success.
After now having received my certification through ISSA, I feel confident that I'm ready to start my business.
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.
Being able to study at my own pace, fitting it in with my own hectic lifestyle was a huge benefit.
I definitely recommend the ISSA on-line program to become a certified personal trainer, it's very complete and you get a lot of support along the way.
