Personal Trainer Certified MarylandWhy Choose NPTI?

  • Plenty of In-Gym Training: Exercise technique can’t be learned solely by studying a book – you need to get in a gym and actually practice the various lifts, spotting techniques, and stretches to become proficient in them. NPTI includes over 200 hours of hands on experience in the gym, working under the supervision of an instructor.
  • Motivated Classmates: Your classmates will be people just like you – with a wealth of real world, life experience to bring to the classroom. You won’t just learn from your instructors, you will learn from your fellow classmates and they in turn will learn from you.
  • Accreditation: NPTI of Virginia is approved by the Department of Education in Virginia, and is accredited by the ACCSC.
  • You'll Earn a Certificate in Nutrition, CPR and AED: A Certificate in Nutrition which lets you help your clients with the very common goals of reducing bodyfat, losing weight, building muscle, and improving fitness and health. CPR and AED certification is usually a requirement to work for a fitness company.

Check out what our students think of NPTI:

"So what makes NPTI such a great program for aspiring personal trainers or even just for individuals trying to dramatically improve their understanding of fitness and nutrition? Well, for me it all starts with Tim. Tim's the founder, director and head instructor of the NPTI school in Virginia and knows more about nutrition, training and fitness than most personal trainers. But even more importantly, he does a fantastic job at sharing his vast knowledge and expertise with a class of students (all of whom come to NPTI with diverse educational and professional backgrounds and with varying degrees of familiarity about nutrition and fitness). NPTI works just as well for people with some experience in the fitness industry as it does for genuine beginners like me who were in need of a hands-on class for "Dummies". "
