A Real-World Approach to Certification Education

NFPT and Fitness Academy Europe (FAE) pair NFPT’s approachable certification education with FAE’s advanced criteria and curriculum as a European leader in fitness to connect people to the power of promoting healthy lifestyles.

Who We Are

NFPT certifies aspiring personal trainers in the United States and abroad. NFPT certification is recognized as a credential that qualifies you, the certified personal trainer, to work as a personal fitness trainer with clients, online or in person, in many health and fitness settings.

NFPT collaborates with Fitness Academy Europe to provide education designed to reinforce goal-oriented training methods that get long-term results, safely and effectively, for all client types. We’re more than certification organizations; we’re a family of trainers and fitness professionals who support one another in our personal journeys.

As an FAE participant, you will have the valuable benefit of one-stop service for everything from education to certification. FAE is nationally and internationally accredited by leading registration organization Europe Active–EREPS, considered the standard in health and fitness accreditation in Europe. FAE staff support you along the way.
