Student Review

Kenny Leow

I've chanced upon the ISA-SLI Sports Coaching for Kids Certification on the ISA website and having prior experience working with children, I was interested to increase my knowledge in fundamental skills such as proper communication, psychological aspects and fundamental movement skills for children that are quintessential in becoming a kids sport coach. The lecturers were knowledgeable, experienced and engaging especially during the practical aspects of the course and I have definitely learned a lot from them. I would strongly recommend anyone who is interested in becoming a kids sports coach to take on this course.

I was interested to find out how I can incorporate kettlebells into my own workout, as well as, to learn new knowledge as a Personal Trainer! I enjoyed my time with the instructor and other students where we learnt about the different types of kettlebell workouts and its benefits.”
