Canadian Personal Trainer Certification

This page has all the vital statistics for the Can Fit Pro Canadian Personal Trainer Certification. Can Fit Pro (or CanFitPro or Can-Fit-Pro) is a division of Canadian Fitness Professionals Inc.

You can read our full review of the Can Fit Pro certification here.

Can Fit Pro is the most widely recognized Canadian personal trainer certification. While other certifications from "south of the border" are recognized in Canada, the homegrown Can Fit Pro certification is extremely popular. But if you are not in Canada, then you can skip this cert.


You can get your Can Fit Pro certification in as little as 6 weeks. You must score 80% or better to pass the exam, and there is no way to fake the practical demonstration part of the exam so take your time and develop your skills.

Since Can Fit Pro requires this practical exam (which is really a 60 minute personal training session with the instructor), it is helpful if you have some training experience. For the written portion of the test, our Exam Review Course will help you prepare.

The Can Fit Pro Certification is less expensive than the other major certification programs. Its low cost is a big factor toward its popularity.
