Is NETA the Best Choice For Me?

There are many organizations providing fitness certifications, so how do I know if NETA is the best choice for me?


NETA has been educating fitness professionals for over 40 years, longer than virtually all other certifying bodies in the fitness industry. Our primary certifications (i.e., group exercise instructor and personal trainer) are accredited by the NCCA, ensuring that the NETA credentials meet industry standards and are accepted at most fitness facilities. The principal difference between NETA and other certifying organizations is that we provide live, hands-on exam preparation workshops presented by our own well-qualified instructors, not just self-study like many organization. Our dedicated staff is passionate about fitness and ready to help you throughout a successful career.


As a not-for-profit organization, NETA is able to provide the best value of any certifying organization. In most situations NETA provides a live exam preparation workshop presented by an experienced NETA educator and the exam for less than other organizations charge for just the exam. NETA’s renewal fees are significantly lower than other organizations, so maintaining your certification is more affordable. In addition, we also offer group discounts and complimentary registrations for facilities that host our workshops.

Continuing Education & Support:

NETA schedules over 1,150 continuing education and specialty certification workshops every year all across the U.S., more than any fitness certification company. The workshops are conducted by NETA’s own personable and knowledgeable presenters. We also offer over 125 home study courses, making it convenient and easy to continue your education and to maintain your professional certification. NETA is also the most flexible organization accepting continuing education credits from many other organizations and is a continuing education provider for other major certifying organizations. Our friendly customer service and education advisors are always available to help you.
