There’s no doubt about it: 2020 was a weird year, and all the drastic changes this year got me thinking about what I wanted to do with my career. I always loved being at the gym, whether that’s spotting friends lifting weights or jumping into a pickup basketball game, and I found myself missing that with all the gym closures and fewer opportunities to play sports this year.  That’s why I committed to finding social, active, and meaningful work — a job that I love, doing what I love.

The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), and particularly its Strength and Conditioning course, has proved to be my salve. Through ISSA’s at-home course and accredited exam, I’m on my way to becoming a certified coach, getting the tools I need to fulfill my lifelong dream of working in sports and fitness. The course is a breath of fresh air and a rapid path toward sharing my love of wellness, guiding motivated and dedicated athletes, and exercising beyond the constraining limits of my home.

ISSA’s personal training course has taught me the science behind exercise and peak athletic performance, all without needing to take expensive Master’s coursework. ISSA also offers Nutritionist and Certified Personal Trainer programs, so I know I will emerge from the program with a well-rounded set of accreditations I could put to good use. 

The Strength and Conditioning course comes with a bunch of online resources, too, so I could learn hundreds of exercises. And with ISSA’s job guarantee, you can pursue your dreams with a sense of safety and financial security. If you don’t find a job in fitness within six months of obtaining your certification, ISSA will find one for you or your money back.

I spend a couple of hours each day studying, fitting each class around my work and family obligations. I am on pace to finish the course in just two months, and prepared to ace the untimed, open-book, accredited online exam.

Best of all, I know I will be putting my new certification to work. I can fill out job applications and go to interviews confident that I have the tools I need to secure my dream job in fitness. There’s no better time than the present to start laying the foundation for your future. Signing up is as easy as visiting ISSA online and requesting a free evaluation kit. There is no cost or obligation involved, only a promise to yourself to live life on your own terms! 

ISSA’s Strength and Conditioning course will unlock a whole new rewarding career for me, and it can do the same for you if you’re considering entering the exciting fitness industry. Helping athletes become their peak selves – and doing the same for yourself – has never been easier, and for me, it’s the reward of a lifetime.
