If you are looking for ISSA test prep, Varsity Tutors has you covered. We offer top-notch ISSA prep services to help you build your study skills. You can work one-on-one with a private tutor. ISSA stands for the International Sports Science Association, an association that offers many professional fitness and nutrition certifications. If you think private ISSA tutoring could help you improve your studies, contact an academic advisor to learn more about ISSA test prep services.
The first step to ISSA prep is to determine which certification you want to obtain. If you are interested in Nutrition Coaching Certification, the list below details some of the many topics covered:
Nutrition Coaching Certification Topics (non-exhaustive list)
- Cell function
- Carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, proteins, and fats
- Nutritional needs when undergoing an exercise program
- Nutrition for exercise repair and recovery
- Balancing food energy and energy expended
- Assessing a client's nutritional needs
- Coaching and motivating clients
- Pregnancy and other medical conditions
Each of the topics above and many more is covered during Nutrition Coaching Certification. If you are preparing for this exam, you might want to consider taking practice exams that mimic the exact conditions you will test in as part of your ISSA test prep regimen to help you build the skills you need. If you are not familiar with electronic tests, completing practice exams can also help you learn how to navigate the interface.
Here is a quick look into the Group Fitness Instructor Certification topics that you will find on the exam and during your ISSA course:
Group Fitness Instructor Certification Topics (non-exhaustive list)
- Assessing clients for nutritional needs, mobility and flexibility, and body composition
- Joints and common injuries
- Underlying physiological aspects of strength
- Muscle fiber types
- Mechanisms of fatigue
- Workout tempos
- Cardiovascular training
- Training cycles
- Group workout formats
- Coaching and motivating a group
Another benefit of taking practice exams is that you may be able to identify areas of opportunity that you may benefit from during future ISSA courses. If you do not score well on any part of the practice exam, you might boost your efficiency by spending more ISSA test preparation time to that section. On the other hand, if you are performing well consistently in a certain section, you can gloss over the subject to improve your efficiency.
Also, ISSA classes could also teach you test-taking techniques to help you approach the exam more confidently. For instance, your tutor is knowledgeable about the contents and format of the exam, so they can share that knowledge with you to help you become more familiar with the material and timing. ISSA tutors can show you exactly what resources are available to you.
Your instructor's focus will be on you during your Varsity Tutors ISSA test prep, so you will get all of the possible benefits from individualized attention. If you have questions, they can be answered in a timely fashion. Your tutor can give immediate feedback on your work so that you are familiar with how you are doing every step of the way. Additionally, you may find it easier to ask your private tutor questions as opposed to your teacher who doesn't know you quite as well.
We understand that your time is valuable, so we try to match you with the instructor who will best match your scheduling needs. We also have a Live Learning Platform that allows you to attend an ISSA class online instead of inside a physical classroom. We do our best to ensure that your test prep is as convenient as possible to help you feel prepared for the exam.
Varsity Tutors takes ISSA preparation seriously, so give us a call today if you are ready to take your study sessions to the next level.
