Student Testimonials:

Image of Personal Trainer Certification in Tampa, West Florida"I am totally "in love" with NPTI's teachings and hands-on experience in six months for beginner fitness trainers. This is an evolutionary change in our industry to apply all that is needed for educating students in this industry. BRAVO!

You guys have blown away the average certifications that are given on a weekend or over the internet. And your students will be on top of their game when ready for the work force. I personally hold over 5 certifications throughout the years and had to research on the internet resolutions to many physical questions that I encountered throughout the years as a trainer. I love the book knowledge of exercise physiology, biology, nutrition and the muscular skeletal system."

- Christie, Tampa, FL

“The practical aspect of this course is without a doubt the biggest asset. I know it will aid me in being one step, if not 10, ahead of my competition. Don’t hesitate to take your personal training course with NPTI. You won’t regret one minute of it.”
- Steve, NPTI Graduate
