National Personal Training Institute of Colorado

The National Personal Training Institute of Colorado (NPTI – CO) is an accredited school focused solely on the career development and education of personal fitness trainers. Approved for Federal Financial Student Aid and military veteran education benefits (GI Bill and MyCAA), the Denver and Colorado Springs campuses have enrolled 2,300 + aspiring personal trainers from 21 international countries and all over the Unites States since 2003. Find out more information here.

Interested in a personal training career focused on training youth? Training older adults? Focused on diet & nutrition? Starting your own fitness business? Have a passion for training athletes? Do you desire a solid foundation of anatomy, biomechanics, program design, and kinesiology? Come check us out. Comes sit in on a class. Not only will you receive the best possible personal training education available anywhere over a 7 – 10 month period (depending on which program you chose), but you can take all specialized electives you want for up to SIX MONTHS after you graduate!

Switching careers? Juggling a lot of balls … family, job, travel? With NPTI CO’s focus on serving the non-traditional student, you can attend class during the day or at night (and you can switch at will between the day and nights classes)! Or, if you are just too busy to get here during the day, you can take the extended 40 week program that has fewer hours per week, fewer hours per class, and allows you more time to finish the personal fitness trainer course while accommodating your already busy lifestyle.

91%+ of our graduates who take the Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) examination successfully pass the CPT exam. Many of our graduates also successfully pass the NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) and Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) certification examinations.

If you thrive in a hands-on, classroom environment taught by degreed fitness professionals with many years of experience in the health & fitness field, then come sit in on a class and see for yourself. In fact, if you are not satisfied after the first full week in class, no problem.

SCHOLARSHIPS: Ask about scholarships for veterans with expired GI Bill benefits, native Americans, high school seniors about to graduate, AmeriCorps and Peace Corps volunteers.

Unlike some career schools, at the National Personal Training Institute of Colorado, personal trainer education and career development is not something that we “also” do, it is ALL that we do!
