Testimonials Miles: I thought I would take a quick second to tell you how really impressive your school is. Being a personal trainer has always been my life’s dream and I know that with the great training and knowledge I got from you guys, I’m actually going to be able to make that dream a reality. I’m so excited and I could never thank you guys enough. I’m so glad I attended the National Personal Training Institute instead of some silly mail-in or on-line certification. Thanks for everything. Ken
Hello Guys. I am working at Willoughby Fitworks and have been there for about five weeks. I have to say that I train very differently from the other trainers in that I work more with the Bosu, stability ball, bands and my client’s own body weight and less with machines. I found that my clients love it. I’m also the only trainer that will spend extra time stretching out my clients. I left Fitworks tonight thinking "I truly love doing this". I can't thank you guys enough for everything. I still refer back to my notebooks for some of my clients- I keep everything from class handy. You can spot a NPTI student a mile away- we totally stand out......Wendi
Hello Miles: I wanted to touch base and give you an update on my fitness career. I’m currently employed by the Akron General Wellness Center in Fairlawn and its going well. It’s truly a state of the art facility and a great place to work. I used to pass it driving on my way to class at the National Personal Training Institute each day and think to myself, 'I'd love to get a job there as a personal trainer'. I read the bios of all the personal trainers working there and since they all had a four year college degree in some type of exercise or sports conditioning, I naturally thought they'd never hire me since I don’t have a degree. I gave it a try anyhow and sent in my resume in May and after some perseverance, I was hired and I love it!!! I'm sure I couldn't have done it without the experience and education you, Rich and Miriam provided. Thanks so much!!! Cindy
Hey Miles: I really wanted to say thank you for the help you gave me while enrolled at the National Personal Training Institute. My life has taken a turn in a very positive direction and I feel unbelievably fortunate to have been a part of your program. It still hasn't sunk in yet all of the things I can now accomplish due to the education and practical experience I received from the National Personal Training Institute. I gave you six dedicated months of my time and you gave me a career that I can retire from. My time here has allowed me to rival the knowledge and capabilities of other personal trainers who have been training for years and I cannot express my gratitude enough. Nick

As you know, Fitness Together is a national franchise that has the highest of standards for its employees. We don’t view personal training as a job, but as a career, and we believe that all of the trainers that the National Personal Training Institute has recommended to us have shared that vision. Please keep sending me great personal trainers.- Michael Hall, Owner, Fitness Together Miles and Miriam- We wanted to thank you for continuing to send us great personal trainers. We are always very happy with the knowledge people have when coming from the National Personal Training Institute.-Sharon Randall, Personal Training Manager, Lifetime Fitness of Columbus
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for providing a quality personal training program in Ohio. As an active member of the fitness industry, I am proud to say the program offered by the National Personal Training Institute is second to none. The educational component gives students the knowledge and confidence they need to understand the foundations of personal training while the hands on training gives your students the edge over standard certifications. I am proud to be included in your program as a guest speaker and each time I visit I am impressed with the number of students enrolled and equally impressed with their interaction and professionalism. I consider myself one of the fortunate fitness managers in the industry given my opportunities to interact with your students. I look forward to your continued success.-Mike Blizzard, Fitness Director, The Mandel Jewish Community Center of Cleveland.
