Our Story

In 1988, the most powerful team of fitness experts ever assembled joined together with an unyielding commitment to stem the tide of physical decline in our country. Culled from the elite ranks of research, coaching, sports medicine and sport and fitness science, these individuals decided to draw a line in the sand and turn the tide towards a more fit and healthier nation. They formed the International Sports Sciences Association with the mission of standardizing information and transforming the health & fitness of our nation.

Since that initial gathering, THE INTERNATIONAL SPORTS SCIENCES ASSOCIATION has catapulted to the forefront of the fitness community. ISSA is now recognized as the WORLD LEADER IN FITNESS CERTIFICATION with over 300,000 trainers in 91 countries. Hundreds of physicians, chiropractors, coaches, physical therapists, occupational therapists, athletic trainers, and health & fitness professionals have taken ISSA specialized programs for fitness certification and continuing education. The founders as well as the majority of ISSA professors and advisors are both world class athletes and have earned their Masters or PH.D. degrees, and are people who possess extraordinary academic backgrounds as well as practical, "in the trenches" experience.

The ISSA acts as a distance education institution and certifying agency and provides personal training certification material to:

Personal Trainers and Fitness Trainers through our Personal Trainer Certification course
Athletic Trainers through our Strength and Conditioning Certification specialization course
Medical Professionals in all areas of health care through our Exercise / Fitness Therapy Certification specialization course
