This course is designed to teach the personal trainer the necessary skills to put the client at ease, properly assess all aspects of the client that have an impact on his/her unique needs, and develop a program that meets the client's needs as he/she progresses through the program.
The client's attitude toward exercise is recognized as an important factor in his/her progression in an exercise and nutritional program. Many national organizations are focusing on ways to assess the client's attitude toward exercise. The National Strength and Conditioning Association suggests the "Attitudinal Assessment", as a means to determine the client's attitude toward exercise. While this test may provide some information to the personal trainer, regarding the client's attitude toward exercise, it will not give the trainer a comprehensive understanding of the specific factors that affect the client's attitude. Additionally, this test will not provide the personal trainer an understanding of the client's attitude toward areas of his/her life beyond exercise. This will leave the personal trainer ill equipped to develop an exercise program the truly meets the needs of the client.
Further, the personal trainer will not have the information necessary to accurately modify the training program to meet both the client's progression, and his/her changing needs (affected by factors outside of the exercise program). In order to address this problem, this course includes an assessment test that provides the trainer with a thorough understanding of the six  factors that determine the client's attitude toward both positive and negative life events, including progressions in an exercise program.
This course will teach the trainer how to properly administer and evaluate this test. Additionally this course will teach the trainer how to use the results of this test to design an exercise program that meets the client's unique, and dynamic, needs. Through this course, the trainer will also learn the skills necessary to modify the exercise program to not only meet the client's dynamic needs, but also to positively affect client retention rates.
Features online enrollment, online exam and instant grading as well as automatic certificate generation upon completion of course.
My experience with ISSA was amazing. I was so impressed with the online self-study program and how it was organized. I was equally impressed with the staff support, knowledge and integrity!
This Strength and Conditioning Certification from ISSA gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in strength and conditioning, whether it be in the gym or outside on the field or court, with a team or an individual.
The ISSA certified personal trainer program is the best experience of my life.
Of my now 25 coaching certifications, I was super impressed with how in-depth and thorough the ISSA SSC is.
The education I received will put me above my competition and has provided me to the tools to helps other meet their personal fitness goals.
I am now one step closer to my visions. I can't wait to get out there and help others. I highly recommend this course to individuals who are interested in becoming a certified personal trainer.

I highly recommend anyone who is in this field or career and to take ISSA, they are very helpful, professional and they help you expand in the personal training, fitness and healthy lifestyle.
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.
I loved every single page of my book. They were so informative and every topic we're in-depth.
If it weren’t for my injury, or my struggle with weight when I was younger I wouldn’t have the passion and excitement for fitness I do now! I’m so excited for what the future holds due to this program!
Not only was the program extremely informative, but the final exam was challenging and really put what I had learned to test.
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.
