Personal Trainer Education

Success Starts with Your Foundation

Lay a strong foundation for your lifetime of career success with NFPT’s comprehensive, easy-to-understand education materials.

Everyone Learns Differently

We aren’t all by-the-books learners. With NFPT, you select the learning method and the resources that you need to pass the exam and grow and expand your expertise. You receive the same top-quality NFPT education in whichever certification package you choose. Use the NFPT Personal Trainer Manual to prepare for taking the exam and study at your own pace. We also offer hands-on workshops if face to face instruction is better for you. Either way you choose, the learning objectives for passing the exam are all the same.


Learning Objectives to Pass the Exam

Understanding the Principles of Human Anatomy

Understanding the Processes of Human Physiology

Being Familiar with Fitness Components and Training Methods

Developing, Implementing and Modifying Goal-Oriented Exercise Programs

Using Professionalism and Effective Communication Skills to Promote Trainer Services and Success

Take It With You

You can purchase the NFPT Personal Fitness Trainer Manual to hold in your hands, highlight important passages and toss in your bag to read on the go.

This 300+ page book contains all of the information you’ll need to study for your NFPT Certification Exam and includes the complete, step-by-step guidelines and documents you’ll need to perform client assessments.

NOTE: The printed manual comes with the Premier and Premier Plus certification package or can be purchased separately. When you purchase a certification package, you automatically receive the digital manual in your NFPT Account. If you purchase a printed copy, you’ll get immediate access to the digital download while you wait for your copy to arrive.
