Testimonials:

Photo of Personal Trainer Certification Program in Chicago IL area"..currently my 4 trainers are all graduates of NPTI. They have also been with me almost 2 years. I have noticed that the quality of trainer these individuals receive is different than an on-line course. The trainers are well prepared and have also had some hands on training with clients even before they graduate. I have had nothing but success with NPTI and will continue working with them whenever I am need of a great trainer. Thanks to Nick Sabino and NPTI I have a very successful studio and satisfied clients."
Betty Scarimbolo, Owner-Fitness Together Naperville North

"When I first saw NPTI’s ad in my local newspaper, my gut told me I was going to register for their personal training program. I was a stressed-out, burnt-out business person looking to create a new career in the fitness and wellness industry. I was in my mid-40’s, wanting a new career path, and looking to gain the knowledge and experience necessary to start a business that helped people build happy, healthy, and fit lives. I wanted something more than studying on my own and taking a test to receive a credential.

For me, NPTI had the right mix of science, theory, and practical application of exercise science and program design. Their instructors were great – they knew how to challenge me and help me grow. The value I received far exceeded the dollars and time I invested. My experience and what I learned at NPTI have been a vital part of my success in business and in life!"
