Message from National Personal Training Institute

The National Personal Training Institute is unlike other self-study personal training certifications. With this 500 Hour Personal Training Diploma, the gym is your classroom – whether physically or interactively through our live virtual classes.

Train to Become Personal Trainers and Fitness Professionals

We believe that personal trainers need hands on experience; therefore, 200 hours is spent practical training. This is coupled with our 300 hours of theory learning (e.g.: anatomy, physiology, nutrition). As one of the nation’s largest school systems devoted to personal training, the National Personal Training Institute’s mission is to prepare its students to become personal trainers and fitness professionals.

Our Graduates Are Ready to Enter the WorkForce

The National Personal Training Institute strongly believes that self-study programs are not sufficient to become a qualified personal trainer and instead advocates that personal trainers need to attend an academic program that is in a training atmosphere. Our graduates are ready to enter the workforce and benefit the community as they are well versed in the scope of practice for personal trainers and knowledgeable on the subjects of health and fitness related to personal training.

We strive to provide a high quality and worthwhile education experience that each student values and would recommend to their peers.

  • Finest gyms in the country request interviews with our graduates!

Why personal training is such a great career for veterans

Veterans typically possess the necessary qualities that make for successful personal trainers. Returning servicemen and women often live a healthy lifestyle and are natural motivators. They also relate well to the structure necessary for effectively implementing a fitness program. Veterans understand the benefits of an active lifestyle and are dedicated to helping others or serving for a greater cause.

Employment of fitness trainers and instructors is projected to grow 15 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations.

As businesses, government, and insurance organizations continue to recognize the benefits of health and fitness programs for their employees, incentives to join gyms or other types of health clubs are expected to increase the need for fitness trainers and instructors.

Other employment growth will come from the continuing emphasis on exercise to combat obesity and encourage healthier lifestyles for people of all ages. In particular, the baby-boom generation should continue to remain active to help prevent injuries and illnesses associated with aging.
