The ISA Personal Trainer and Fitness Instructor Survey
As part of course development, and with support from the National Instructors and Coaches Association (NICA), International Sports Academy (ISA) would love to hear your thoughts or feedback on how we can improve your experience!

This survey will take about 5 - 10 minutes. The survey results will better inform the academic team at ISA on the personal trainer demographics in Singapore, gym equipment usage, common obstacles experienced by the personal trainer/ fitness instructor, and the practicality of personal training/ fitness instruction knowledge on the job.

***Your response will be confidential, no personal data or details of the survey will be shared***
