Why Become a Personal Trainer?

Do you want to learn what the body can do and help people live a healthy lifestyle? Would you like to turn your fitness lifestyle into a career? Most of all, do you want to love your job? Personal training might be right for you.

Personal trainers are driven by a passion for fitness and the desire to share their knowledge. They’re not usually keen on desk jobs, sitting in cubicles staring at screens all day. Trainers want to move! Is this you?

Shaweta Vasudeva Shay the Coach

I have been a certified personal trainer since 2009. I originally certified with another nationally accredited certifying body. Switching to NFPT was the best move I ever made. They are a family-owned company that cares about my success. Whenever I have any questions about the industry or any aspect of fitness training, someone is always eager to assist me. They allow me to be directly involved!

Being a personal trainer has been the most rewarding career choice I’ve ever made. After 25 years of acting and entertainment, I met a personal trainer with the National Federation of Professional Trainers; his knowledge was amazing. I investigated the many affiliations but none of them offered what NFPT did. I feel blessed to be a part of such a committed organization!

After calling several other certification companies, most seemed cold over the phone and always tried to say they were the best. Not with NFPT! They were honest and down to earth. I know other people who are certified with other companies and they seem dissatisfied when talking about what their companies do for them.
