    ISSA Fitness Nutrition Certification? or other Nutrition Certs?


    Hey bros, ISSA offers a fairly well regarded Fitness Nutrition Certification and have recently began to offer a Sports Nutrition cert.

    Has anyone had any experience with these?

    I hear it is very good information but A TON of work for an at home/online course.

    others that I have researched are
    ACE, NESTA, ISSN (international society of sports nutrition - supposedly the gold standard in non-university based nutrition)


    any thoughts?
    thank you in advance.

    ACSM is a pretty good one to look into- and a CSCS goes a long way in strength and conditioning as well- I have experience with these because they were offered through my MS program......

    Appalachian State has a really strong biomechanics program, as well as offering a great clinical sports nutrition track (what I went through). They also offer a lot of theoretical and practical classes in the application of strength training- you go through those, and you can train just about anyone- athletes or weekend warriors
