Meet Sandy. She has no patience for Parkinson's

Meet Sandy. She has no patience for Parkinson's.

By Sandy Ellis, ISSA Certified Personal Trainer

My father’s side of my family has a genetic disorder similar to Parkinson’s.

While I was growing up and exercising with him I saw firsthand the benefits of gaining the upper hand on the disease through fitness. I wanted to become an ISSA Personal Trainer to work with Parkinson’s patients and also those with special needs.

I did my research and found ISSA had a great presence and reputation in the fitness industry. It was also a good fit for me and where I was in my life.

I am blessed to have earned my ISSA Personal Training Certification in December of 2013. I am so proud to be part of this organization. I can’t even begin to thank the administration and staff for always making me feel important when I ask a question. I know I will have a personalized answer or in one case a phone call to let me know my course petitions had been approved for my CEU’s.

I recently created an adaptive boxing & fitness program for individuals with developmental disabilities. I could not have completed my training for these programs without my ISSA Personal Training Certification, Continuing Education course options and of most of all the support of the ISSA family!
