About NFPT
The National Federation of Professional Trainers (NFPT) has been certifying personal trainers since 1988. We seek to equip trainers and their clients with the education and tools needed to address America’s health problem and promote fitness around the world.

NFPT certified trainers go to work in gyms, health clubs, and private fitness studios around the world everyday. By successfully completing the NFPT certification exam, you will receive a CPT, or Certified Personal Trainer, credential that can be put to work immediately!

The NFPT certification program is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and is nationally and internationally established and recognized – with one of the most affordable and convenient fitness certification processes available! We maintain the credibility and high standards that our trainers, our industry and all fitness consumers respect and deserve, while offering economically priced certification packages that will best suit your needs – and financing is available to get you started without the whole up-front cost.

Practical hands-on workshops are available nationwide – for trainer skill set enhancement or as a supplement to certification prep, it’s an option available for you at anytime.

NFPT provides certification package discounts to health club staff and military personnel and veterans.

We encourage you to compare our program and processes. Whether you’re obtaining your NFPT – CPT credential for personal enrichment or career development…congratulations, you’ve taken the next step to greater success and reaching your fitness trainer goals!
