How The Coaching Certification Works


What makes the difference between being a personal trainer and a coach? What gives you the right to call yourself a coach? Why would you want to be called a certified coach?

Successful professionals in the medical and health communities need specializations to grow their practices and their impact in the world. As a personal trainer you can grow your practice and attract more clients at higher rates by demonstrating your knowledge, skills and abilities.

We’re here to help you make sense of it all and help you along in your career. Right now is the time to enroll in your Personal Training Certification program and become a coach in any of our nine specializations.

Introducing the ISSA Certified Coach Program. Here’s how it works:

  1. Study and become Certified as a Personal Trainer by taking and earning the ISSA Personal Fitness Training Certification as the core requirement
  2. Choose, study and earn your specialization certification from the list below and gain your ISSA Coaching Certification credentials including certificates and wallet ID cards.

When you have completed both courses, you’ve developed a level of knowledge and accumulated the skills to differentiate yourself from ordinary personal trainers and have earned the title of Certified Coach in the area of your new expertise.

The career opportunities you can open up by becoming a certified coach in your specialization allow you to gain more clients, earn more money and help people in important new ways.

Choose the Coaching program that fit's you best:
