PHOENIX, Ariz. The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), a pioneer in the personal training certification industry, debuts a new course focused solely on individualized recovery. Recovery is an important inclusion to an athletic program because it ensures safety and effectiveness to clients, delivering optimal results. A recovery specialist will provide clients of all ages and backgrounds with a program concentrating on effective strategies for regeneration.

The addition of recovery in ISSA’s repertoire offers trainers and clients an in-depth look at the necessary components for overall health and wellness. Trainers will be able to help clients reach new heights with cutting-edge topics including nutrition, stress management, muscle repair, and even how DNA reacts to recovery techniques.

“We are beyond excited to introduce recovery into the comprehensive list of programs offered at ISSA,” said Andrew Wyant, CEO of ISSA. “We constantly hear from clients who want to go the extra mile to achieve their wellness goals. With the addition of recovery as a tactic that is often neglected, they will be able to feel the longevity of their accomplishments by adding more self-care in their wellness regime that could’ve been overlooked before.”

Some of the key points covered by the course include: 

  • Physiology of Muscle Damage 
  • Overtraining
  • Psychology of Overtraining and Recovery 
  • DNA-Based Recovery 
  • Nutrition and Supplementation
  • SMR and Flexibility Techniques 
  • Sleep
  • Massage Therapy

With a certification as a recovery specialist, trainers will be able to apply knowledge on recovery to the specific needs of each client. A holistic approach to fitness will help clients understand the value that ISSA trainers provide in aiding growth through integrated wellness in addition to physical activity.
