I had been a “stay at home” mom for 14 years when I decided it was time to do something for me. I have always been passionate about the fitness industry and it just seemed perfect to become a personal trainer. I started researching the different avenues, schools, online certificates, etc. and this is when I discovered NPTI.
I attended one of their open houses and was impressed with the program immediately. I liked the fact that not only would we be in a classroom setting learning, we would also be doing practical experience in the gym every day.
I feel so fortunate to have had this experience. I had wonderful instructors and coaches. They gave me the self confidence to start my own business teaching boot camps, as well as one-on-one personal training. I would definitely recommend this program to others.
My first day at NPTI happened to be on my Birthday, I walked through the door not knowing what to expect or who I would meet but by the time we were half way through class I remember thinking this was the best start to another year of my life, in my life. I can’t say enough good things about my instructors Jennifer Hedges and Rick Larson and the way the curriculum is offered and reviewed.
NPTI is such a positive experience; I have especially enjoyed the practical experience hours of the course. I received and gave some of the best workouts in all my years of “lifting weights”. This course will not only prepare you for the gym but also teach you anatomy and exercises that best work specific muscles. You’ll learn how to perform fitness assessments and how to understand nutrition. Even daunting subjects such as Biomechanics and Bioenergetics are taught in a way that is comprehensible to what you will need to know in a Personal Training career.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in the human body and how to train it to be effective, safe and healthy for life. I have every confidence that this course has prepared me for any level of the fitness industry.
First and foremost NPTI provides quality information and education in both practical & knowledge-based understanding in becoming a successful Personal Trainer. The majority of graduates from my understanding have quickly been able to adapt to fitness industry and will become well respected Personal Trainers. The teaching methods ensure that all students will understand the material and the NPTI instructors always carried a professional and respectful approach with the class. They helped us feel more and more confident each day as we progressed. Their unique ways of lecturing made classes extremely motivating and enjoyable. This, coupled with the fact that they are so caring and passionate about their students, inspired us (the student) to go as far as we could with what was provided to us during the time spent at NPTI.
I recently got hired and took a position as a Personal Trainer at Gold’s Gym in Elk Grove, CA. I have already established a great client base and have been able to put to use, with much success, all of the skills and knowledge NPTI has given me. I am always so thrilled to train, that it has not crossed my mind that it’s my “job”!
I just simply wanted to say thank you to the instructors for everything they have done for me while being a student at NPTI!
I strongly believe that any graduate from NPTI will suddenly begin to feel the initial success that they‘d long for in the fitness industry.
