About the Course

Three Courses in One

The Master Fitness Trainer course is independent of the NFPT personal trainer certification. To earn the NFPT Master Fitness Trainer certification, you must already be a certified personal trainer with credentials from NFPT or another reputable source. You may apply for special approval to take the course based on one or more of the following: geographic location, level of education and fitness background and experience. Special approval is determined by NFPT on a case-by-case basis.
