to say that you get certified in 6 weeks is a stretch. i used to teach the canfitpro certification for them (busy with another job now)and i had kinesiology students fail because they thought they already knew everything.
to their credit, canfitpro is *not* all about the money. if they were, they could charge a lot more for their certs and they are priced lower than most others. they aren't perfect, but having worked with them i know there are good people working there. their position is that their cert is a starting point, not the end of your education.
about their relationship to goodlife, the two companies are owned by the same person (patch evans), but but he owns lost of companies and why wouldnt you want a cert that has in some way been influenced by the most successful fitness entrepreneur in the world?
and if you have a complaint, my experience is that either you didnt read the cancellation policy or you didnt take it up with them. they try to resolve complaints but have to deal with a lot of people who just try to scam out of doing exams (faking dr notes, etc.).

Its a Money Grab!
by Bob Loblaw
Can fit pro was designed with one thing in mind, MONEY! At $500 bucks a pop you can make a lucrative career teaching people a pile of useless crap they will never use to help people build muscle and develop shape. I have been in the Bodybuilding/Fitness industry for many years and I see these Can fit pro guys come and go.
A) They are in it only to make money.
B) The clients they train look the same as they did when they walked in the door months before, (the only look they have is the look of a drained bank account).
C) Now thanks to them personal trainers have the same status as mall security.
Want to make this work for everyone? Lower your price, make practical training with machines and free weights mandatory, and make CPR training part of the course.
That is my opinion.
