You already know that what you put into something determines what you get out it, your own workouts have already proven that you. 10 minute programs and exercise gimmicks do little to really change fitness, instead it takes hard work performed consistently over a reasonable period of time to truly change the body – but if you are willing to do that, those changes can be extraordinary.
The same is true for your fitness education. Self study programs that involve little if any actual instruction, with no practical component, simply aren’t adequate to fully prepare you for a career in the fitness industry. Anatomy, nutrition, exercise theory – all are complex topics that need to be taught by a qualified instructor, one that is right in front of you that can interact with and ask questions to.

Personal Training is Difficult to Learn With Only a Book
Exercise technique can’t be learned solely by studying a book – one must go to the gym and actually practice the various lifts, spotting techniques, and stretches to become proficient in them. The fitness world is loaded with people that think they are doing something correctly when in actuality they are not – you don’t want to be one of those people, particularly when another person’s health and safety is literally in your hands. NPTI includes over 200 hours of hands on experience in the gym, working under the supervision of an instructor.
Don’t underestimate the value of having classmates either. Remember this is adult education so 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.
