Personal Training Boston

A hands-on learning environment for students to develop the skills, knowledge, and credentials needed to become top personal trainers in the fitness industry.

Are you ready to become a certified personal trainer?

The American Academy of Personal Training is unlike any self-study course you will find online.

Want to become a certified Personal Trainer in an interactive environment? If you answered yes, then this is the program for you! AAPT offers instructor-led Personal Training certification courses where you will interact with fellow students, get practical hands-on experience, ask questions, and receive instructor feedback. Graduates from the American Academy of Personal Training are highly sought after in the fitness industry based on the education they receive. AAPT will empower you with all the tools you need to become a certified personal trainer and achieve your goals.




In additional to receiving an American Academy of Personal Training Diploma AAPT prepares students to sit for an NCCA CPT exam, such as the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) or ACE. Students can opt in to include one of these exams in their tuition at a reduced partnered rate. AAPT provides support and test prep to help students pass an NCCA exam. If a student chooses to take the NASM CPT exam through AAPT, they will be awarded a certificate of Academic Distinction.

The 2020-2021 pass rate for the NASM CPT for AAPT graduates is 100%.


The American Academy of Personal Training Will Set you up for success- no matter which route you choose.

The American Academy of Personal Training Boston (AAPT) provides a progressive, hands-on learning environment where students can develop the skills, overall knowledge, and credentials they need to become active leaders in the personal training industry. AAPT helps students and graduates achieve successful careers as fitness professionals.


Learning concepts in the classroom then going out into their private gym and using these concepts with hands on training really helped me learn to be a great personal trainer. Their affiliation with NASM means Grads are educated and certified and will be in high demand in the quickly growing fitness industry.
