What is the PT Council?

What is the PT Council? The Council is a network of individual PTs committed to the enhancement of the industry in NZ.

Our vision is to support Personal Trainers and improve the professionalism of the industry.

Our mission is to connect Personal Trainers by promoting events and sharing resources that further educate trainers and empower their businesses and careers.

We measure our success on the number of trainers that are connected; that attend our events and use our resources.

Regional meetings, facebook and this website provide a vehicle for PTs to discuss common issues and concerns of relevance to them and the Personal Training industry. The meetings are run by the regional PT Ambassadors whose details can be found here.

The Personal Trainers Council of NZ (PT Council) is a nonprofit body made up of representatives (PT Ambassadors) from geographical regions around NZ.

Any REPs registered PT is eligible to apply to become a regional Ambassador.

The PT Council works with other collaboratively with organisations in the exercise industry, such as the New Zealand Register of Exercise Professionals and Skills Active. Admin support is provided by Exercise NZ.
