It's a very thorough course, and VERY thorough final exam. It gave me the confidence to jump right into this new career.
I started the issa personal trainer course in October and finished in February. I was able to study from my home computer, my iPhone or from the text book. It's a very thorough course, and VERY thorough final exam. It gave me the confidence to jump right into this new career. Thanks ISSA for helping me make my dream a reality!
ISSA is number one in my book, and I would highly, highly suggest anyone interested in this career field GO WITH ISSA!
I partook in the ISSA personal trainer certification course. I have to start of by saying that I have been working out myself for the better part of 6 years, and have a brother who's been certified as a personal trainer who I work out with on occasion and go to for knowledge and advice. So I'm the beginning of the course I thought I knew it all. But boy was I wrong. But I'm glad I was wrong, because that shows me how in depth this program really was. At the end of the program, my knowledge has vastly increased, and I feel like this program is the best one out there in terms of really getting an individual set up for being a trainer.
It gave me easy step by step instructions how to draw in, asses, and train clients to their full potential! Not only that, but when I became certified ISSA offered me a free website, business cards, and much more to help get off on the right foot and also continue on my journey far after I've been certified. ISSA is number one in my book, and I would highly, highly suggest anyone interested in this career field GO WITH ISSA! I guarantee you won't regret it!!
I found the books, videos, and online resources to be valuable. The course ware is written in an easy to understand language
Prior to taking up ISSA, I comprehensively researched many organizations who were offering Personal Trainer certifications .. only perhaps with ISSA, the evaluation exam included detailed essay writing and practical case studies ... honestly this particular aspect of evaluation was unique and clicked with me. I had no further hesitation to zero-in on ISSA. Rest/most other organizations had the traditional objective Q&A to clear their exams. I literally had to keep ~15-20 days to complete my certification exam as the essays and case studies tested application of my gained knowledge thoroughly.
Regarding course material, I found the books, videos, and online resources to be valuable. The course ware is written in an easy to understand language. The book was incredibly comprehensive and the material revisited throughout each chapter, making the recall process simple; the detailed summary at the end of each chapter is my favorite as I could revise each chapter by just going through the summary. The online quizzes helped focus my learning and allowed me to revisit those areas in need of further study. The workbook was a great companion which, if used, religiously works wonders to practicing & retaining knowledge in your mind.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied with ISSA personal trainer certification program.
