I had reached a time in my life when I needed to make a change, and find a meaningful path. NPTI helped me realize my goal to become a personal trainer. The course of study was comprehensive and very well taught, by two instructors I have a ton of respect for – Kristen Robinson, and Kathy McMahon. They were extremely knowledgeable, always open to questions, supportive and helpful. The practical experience I got was incredibly valuable. I left NPTI with confidence and ambition, knowing that I was truly well prepared to be a personal trainer.
The education, training and support we received from Kristen and Kathy was invaluable! We graduated the first Saturday in April 2011 and I had already secured a job as a personal trainer, which I started the following Monday. NPTI’s program is outstanding and enabled us to hit the ground running – to begin our new careers as personal trainers with confidence and superior knowledge.
I’m writing to you to tell you about my experience at NPTI. Growing up I’ve always been into working out and playing sports but I never really thought about personal training until I graduated college and really got into fitness and health. I managed to get myself in decent shape just from the little research I have done, and from the results I’ve achieved, people at the gym started to approach me and ask me for advice. From that point forward I thought to myself that I’d enjoy doing this for a living. At the time I had a regular 9 to 5 job so I never pursued anything further then just a thought about personal training. A few years later when I had the opportunity to switch careers, personal training was the only career I could think of that I’d love doing. After doing some research I discovered NPTI. With my new career path chosen, I wanted to learn as much as possible along with the correct way to train someone. I also read about some quick weekend programs in which a person could take a day course and become a certified trainer. I thought to myself “how could someone learn how to be a trainer in a one day course?” I chose NPTI and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I’ve learned so much in the 6 month course. The information I received has put me ahead in the fitness industry. The knowledge I learned has been so helpful to me when working with my clients to insure they get the results they are looking for in the safest way possible. I’m currently a Fitness Manager and Personal Trainer at a gym loving my new career and I couldn’t have done it without NPTI. I am forever grateful.
After many years in a corporate environment, I knew it was time to make a change in my life. I wanted to make a difference by helping people to achieve their fitness goals, so I enrolled at NPTI to become a personal trainer. It was an awesome experience! The instructors, Kristen Robinson and Kathy MacMahon were top-notch: well spoken, extremely knowledgeable, helpful and motivating. Not only were the lectures during class time intense and absorbing, the 200 hours of practical application in the gym — actually training other students and writing workouts — was invaluable in giving me an extra edge in starting my career as a personal trainer. I would encourage anyone who has a passion for fitness and desire to work in this business to enroll at NPTI.
