Thank you once again to the staff at ISSA for giving me this opportunity to enroll into your program and making me feel welcome. I can't wait to take you guys on my next fitness journey in life!
The ISSA Personal Trainer course explained every chapter very clearly and covered so many areas of health, nutrition, and fitness.
If I had questions, comments or concerns, I would call and the staff was so very helpful, I was in shock of how much support I got!
From the start, ISSA provided everything I needed to study, practice and qualify for a personal trainer's certification.
I chose ISSA because it is well known for its business.
I feel confident to go into the work force as a personal trainer now, and I'm excited to start this chapter in my life.
The course is very comprehensive, the six learning experiences on the final were fun to do and the support was great.
With the website, blogs and continuing education that ISSA offers I know I will continue to improve as a personal trainer.
They have been tremendously supportive over the years and helped me to build a very profitable personal training practice!
I just finished my newest certification of Specialist in Exercise Therapy, and that ISSA was there to help me successfully pass the exam with confidence. I highly recommend the ISSA to fellow trainers, and to trainers, we hire for our studio!
The resources ISSA provides (both in hard copy and online) such as the study guide, the coursebook, the chapter summary videos, the exercise videos, and the question board are all very valuable tools...
