Come in for a Tour
Have you come in for a tour of either our Lakewood (Denver area) or Colorado Springs campus locations? Call us at 303.238.9999 or e-mail us at info@PersonalTrainingInstitute.edu. You’ll meet with the President of the school.
You can tour the facilities and sit in on a class if you like. Flip through previous students’ portfolios and see the actual work that you do while learning to become a trainer at the National Personal Training Institute of Colorado.
