ISSA really made sure I had every opportunity to succeed, and every resource available to help at the click of a button. The manuals are extremely well done, moving from theory to practice in manageable portions.

It’s challenging enough that you can’t walk through the work, even though it’s open book. You have to earn your grade. Furthermore, I love how practical it is. In the real world you’d have resources such as a books, Internet, videos, colleagues, etc that would assist in the process. I believe other certifications that require you to memorize everything get “crammers” who pass while others who maybe better versed, more personable, great social, caring etc never attempt it b/c life (if you’re doing the right things) is very challenging & time consuming. I wouldn’t recommend it to people who I believed weren’t great in their own personal practice at fitness and didn’t have a heart of service. However, I would recommend it to working professionals and dedicated people who want more. I apologize for typos and poor sentence structure. Typing from a cellphone.

I didn’t know with my full time job and busy mommy duties and running around from location to location for my kid sports if I was going to be able to focus and complete this course. But from day one everything was so detailed and easy to understand . The examples helped a lot and ISSA allow me to work at my own pace and I was able to ask questions and get answers right away. I’m looking forward to forwarding my education with ISSA .

This course was informative but easy to comprehend. As a Registered Nurse, I have been through courses that tested a person's ability to believe in themselves instead of testing their knowledge. I learned so much from this course and it will not only help me reach my own personal fitness goals but also the goals of the women in my boxing club. There are a lot of "broken" women out there who no longer believe in themselves and have no hope of getting healthy. My goal.is to give them that hope back.

The tools and resources that ISSA provide are invaluable and will really set you apart from the rest, in this fitness industry.
Being certified through ISSA has brought so much freedom to our lives. Pati was able to quit his full time job and focus solely on training his clients and athletes. He has been able to achieve success in Powerlifting and will compete in his 2nd World Powerlifting Meet this Fall. He is an ISSA certified strength and conditioning specialist. I have been training for 15years and after earning my Professional Status as an IFBB Figure Athlete, I decided it was time to dive into the Nutrition aspect of fitness.
My business really took off when I got my ISSA certification as a Specialist in Sports Nutrition and Specialist in Fitness Nutrition. This also put me in the position to be an example by assisting over 10 of my previous clients in receiving their own ISSA certification and beginning their own training and/or nutrition business. Through our ISSA credentials we are able to grow our iPhysique company and work together Coaching our team of Athletes in:
Figure and bikini competitions
Spartan and other outdoor racing
We enjoy running all aspects of business together including; photo shoots, traveling to team events, and making appearances for supplement companies. Having a career together has been so rewarding for our family as we have 2 children and are now able to be very efficient with work time, to allow for the valuable family time. The tools and resources that ISSA provide are invaluable and will really set you apart from the rest, in this fitness industry.

A great program which teachs you the basis of anatomy, movements, exercises, nutrition, supplementation and much more in a simple and understandable way...
As a graduated in Nutrition from another school, a great passion for sports and fitness besides been involved in the medical field, I was looking for a program to get my certification as a personal trainer because I am also a "gym rat". I chose ISSA after some researches online and asking to friends working in the fitness field their opinions and experiences. I was not disapointed at all when I went throught the whole program. ISSA personal trainer certification has an excellent foundation of knowledge and it does really prepare students to train the majority of clients you'd encounter.
It is so interesting, creative, flexible, and helpful besides been classified as one of the best five programs certifications to have. A great program which teachs you the basis of anatomy, movements, exercises, nutrition, supplementation and much more in a simple and understandable way, suitable for any person who really likes to learn on his/her own. So many quizzes that help to consolidate the concepts and a very long final test which demands you to be very focused on it; but at the end of the day, you are only adding up all you have learned throughout the completed course to answer the test.
I would recommend this program to anyone interested on it and thinking of taking another certifications with ISSA on a near future. School staff provides is amazing and so helpful. Anytime you need them, they are there for you. Definetely a must for yourself if you also think on your own training and fitness goals.
One of the reasons I decided to get my personal training certification through ISSA is because how helpful they were in the certification process.
One of the reasons I decided to get my personal training certification through ISSA is because how helpful they were in the certification process. The process was pretty easy and the ISSA website is extremely helpful. Because of my positive experience, I referred a friend and she received her PT certification. English is her second language and ISSA is the only certifying agency that we found to offer this certification in Spanish.
