Welcome to the BC Personal Training Institute


BCPTI was founded in 2013 because we saw the need to provide a better education for prospective personal trainers. By providing classroom and in-gym training you’ll be well versed in both the scientific and practical approach to personal training.

Becoming a certified personal trainer means you’ve committed to making a difference in your community.  We provide you with a world-class evidence-based training model that prepares you to step into the real-world fitness industry and begin helping clients right away!

BCPTI certifies our students through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) certification; a certification accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and globally recognized.

“I cannot recommend this program enough, and in my opinion, it has only gotten better and more refined over the years. Whether your end goal is to be a Personal Trainer, better your own understanding of the body, or just feel like you have more direction/knowledge in the gym, this course is for you!”
