Check out what our students think of NPTI:

"My time at NPTI was great because our instructors were fantastic. My main instructor was Tim Henriques, and you could not have a better instructor than Tim.  He is extremely knowledgeable in this field, but even more so he is passionate about the field of body building and is very dedicated to teaching. You undoubtly will learn a lot from person that loves what they do.  From my experience with Tim's instruction, Tim wants all his students to do well, and become great trainers, whether your goal is for self-improvement or you are embarking on a new career. I firmly believe that NPTI offers instruction that give you tools and instills confidence that I know you will possess when you finish the program."
