Mission Statement

The mission of International Sports & Fitness Trainers Association (ISFTA) is to promote worldwide education of health and fitness professionals in a standardized manner so that our students, trainers, instructors and professionals will all have the most current and relevant information available. 

International Sports & Fitness Trainers Association was founded in 2000 by a team of medical and fitness professionals with the intention of providing training at a level superior to that which had previously been available. We have been providing quality education for over a decade and have some of the highest standards in the industry. We continue to increase our standards as the industry evolves.

A Perfect Choice for the Aspiring Fitness Professional……….

It is estimated that 75% or $1.5 trillion dollars of medical care is preventable and reversible without clinical intervention. This presents an unquestionable opportunity for today’s fitness professionals.  Now, more than ever, we are in a position to offer “preventative” type services to an overwhelming majority of the population. Statistics indicate that 60-80% of Americans do not exercise regularly and only 10% are likely to begin an exercise program within the next year.  Even more discouraging than this….out of the 20-30% that exercise, half of them will stop working out within 3-6 months.  This evidence is alarming and clearly indicates that despite our nations multi-billion dollar health and fitness industry, we have failed to provide programs and educational services that provide incentive for American’s to begin exercising and furthermore, to stick to it.  In light of these statistics, fitness has become a respected career choice and is increasingly recognized as a profession.  Despite the economic downturn, the U.S. Department of Labor reports that the fitness industry is still growing and job opportunities are solid. Employment in the industry is expected to increase by 27% through 2016, a figure that’s greater than the average for all professions, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
