Very good school, lots of tools online and even on your tablet or smart phone, good support, excellent courses and materials. I would recommend ISSA to anyone looking to get involved with fitness. There are lots of schools out there, but I’m glad I chose these guys.

I have learned so much from your programs. The on-line product worked out perfectly for me. I could study and complete the program at my own pace. The support team was great answering my questions. The material is well written and the information in the manuals is invaluable for a trainer.

It's been a pleasure to work with ISSA, from my initial telephone conversation, need for extension, to the final exam. The workbook and manual were very helpful and the exam challenging. I was able to log on and off when necessary. The information was insightful and I'll use it as a reference as a Senior Specialist. I also want to thank Cameron Baker. His letter was more than a congratulations. HIs acumen and appreciation of the work involved was much appreciated . Thank you! Thom Ciulla

There's no substitute for science. We can learn a lot about fitness and nutrition rather haphazardly - hanging around the gym, learning from others, reading magazines and blogs, but there's a need for formal education if you want to professionally help others. ISSA courses keep you from becoming a one-dimensional "my way" trainer - a person who might know the gym, but doesn't know beans about the human body, working with different sexes, all ages, or disabilities. ISSA courses are very thorough and well-designed. To successfully pass your exams, you have to possess the general knowledge plus you have to become resourceful in research. In my opinion, the Senior Fitness certification course was as difficult as my initial Certified Fitness Trainer course. Both courses required disciplined study and the final exams are tough. These days, ANYBODY can pay for a worthless certificate online. But, when it comes down to actually training someone, people who pay for these "certifications" are as worthless as the paper it's printed on. The general public may not know the difference in an ISSA certification and a mail order one, but gym owners and other trainers do.
