Membership FAQ

Anyone with an interest in fitness can become a member.

Visit our benefits page to see a list of membership benefits. 

There are three types of membership:

  • Professional Membership (includes Student membership)
  • Business Membership

The Professional Membership is most suitable for individuals interested in becoming fitness professionals and taking canfitpro courses and exams, as well as fitness enthusiasts who would like to be a part of a professional fitness organization. To be eligible for a Student Discount, you must show proof of student status at a high school or post-secondary institution for the current academic year. Membership under the Student Discount includes all the benefits of the Professional Membership except that an electronic copy of canfitpro Magazine is sent in place of a hard copy. 


The Business Membership is most beneficial to club owners and operators. Benefits include job postings, incentives, and discounts for staff on certifications, conferences, etc.

Business Membership rates are based on the number of locations per club. To find out your individual rate, please e-mail us at Membership is valid for one (1) year and renewals are based on the number of locations per club. Click here to see a list of Business Membership benefits.

To become canfitpro-certified or to retain your certification, you need to invest in/renew your Professional Membership with canfitpro on an annual basis. Without a current membership, your certification is not valid.

If you are a certified member, your expiry date will not change. You will need to back pay your membership fees in order to validate your certification. If you are a non-certified member, your expiry date will change to the end of the current month of payment plus one (1) year.
