I really dont know where to post this but could the mod redirect this to the right forum? I am wondering what this process is like? ISSA certification costs around 600 dollars so and it seems like they deliver everything to you so you can study yourself. Anyone have experience with ISSA?

I would instead go with www.NASM.org or www.NCSF.org-the first is 100% online, and the second is a 3 day workshop, both cost around $300, and are accepted nationally.
Just FYI- ISSA was not recognized by 24 hour fitness when I worked there (dont know if this has changed) so if you want to work there, ISSA wouldnt be a good choice.

the best one you can get is ACSM, although that involves actually going to a school somewhere for a couple months.
Another good online one is ACE.
