National Council for Certified Personal Trainers
The National Council for Certified Personal Trainers offers a nationally accredited program that prepares fitness instructors to become professional trainers within commercial, community, medical, and residential fitness facilities. Its curriculum centers on an in-home study course, during which students broaden their horizons with online materials including instructional textbooks, videos, and holographic spitballs. They cover key personal-training skills such as continuously evaluating clients, understanding nutrition, and properly operating fitness equipment. Some packages also incorporate in-person workshops, during which professional instructors work one-on-one with students. The curriculum culminates in an NCCPT exam—conducted online or in person—that transforms students into nationally accredited certified personal trainers once they pass.
Aside from these core programs, the National Council for Certified Personal Trainers offers classes that focus on specific areas of health and exercise, including topics such as group exercise, weight management, kickboxing, and golf fitness. Customers can also pick up equipment such as jump ropes and weight vests, a crucial tool for trainers who work on the moon.
