Fitness EDUCATION

ACTIVE AGING CERTIFICATE

This course provides the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and effectively provide physical activity in many settings to this unique population.

The launch of our Active Aging Certificate program (AAC) is in response to the statistics highlighting that the over 50’s are making up the fastest-growing age group in Canada. With this trend expected to continue for the next several decades, we realize that response to exercise is not age-dependent, it’s mind-dependent. This means that at any age or fitness level someone can respond positively to exercise and nutrition and gain benefits. Our new Active Aging Certification Certificate will cover a wide variety of topics related to aging and the very broad spectrum of clients/class participants.

CHILDREN'S FITNESS COACH

This course provides any individual working directly with children, aged 7-12, the knowledge and skills necessary to safely and effectively provide physical activity programs to this unique population.

We all know physical activity and exercise can deeply impact long term health. But did you know that physical activity in children is more than just preventing obesity? It’s about improving physical, mental, social, and emotional development. As fitness professionals working with children, our main focus should always be creating positive early fitness experiences to encourage lifelong participation. Instructors, physical educators, and coaches must be properly trained and have experience with teaching physical activity to children. Become the resource for the most recent information, activity choices and program design relevant to this age group today!

EAT-CLEAN FOR WELLNESS

We are excited to announce our next canfitpro collaboration with none-other than the ‘Eat-Clean Queen’ Tosca Reno, in the creation of Eat-Clean for Wellness!

Tosca Reno’s Eat-Clean for Wellness course powered by canfitpro, will provide you with a proven approach to a healthy, clean eating lifestyle that will give you the edge in supporting your immune system. With increasing disease states, it is necessary that we learn both what to eat and what to avoid eating in the food landscape that exists today. Once we know this, we can empower ourselves to introduce the essential nutrients that supercharge the immune system, which will help us to fight disease. Take back your health by proactively providing your body with needed nutrients and enjoy robust health once again.

EAT-CLEAN FOUNDATIONS

We are excited to announce canfitpro’s collaboration with none-other than the ‘Eat-Clean Queen’, Tosca Reno in the creation of Eat-Clean Foundations! Learn how you can balance your blood sugar levels, boost your energy and transform your physique with Tosca Reno’s Eat-Clean Foundations powered by canfitpro! Eating clean is a lifestyle way of consuming food that promotes overall health, encourages weight maintenance, increases vitality and supports a positive well-being.

FASCIA, MOVEMENT & ASSESSMENTS COURSE

LEARN THE REVOLUTIONARY NEW MATERIAL THE FITNESS INDUSTRY IS TALKING ABOUT!

Gain knowledge and skills about fascia, mobility and assessments that you will use immediately! Learn the functional relevance of fascial systems to improve mobility and performance. Analyze and incorporate assessment results that facilitate a postural corrective program. Address specific conditions to establish a suitable training foundation. Take the body to a fresh new level that will make a difference.

UNDERSTANDING A FIT PREGNANCY

We know that exercise during pregnancy is generally good for both the mother and baby. However, until you have a client, class member, or yourself, pregnant, you may not be prepared to work with them safely. This program will take you through the common concerns, safe screening, and the best exercises to do when pregnant so that you can safely work with this population.

FUNDAMENTALS OF NUTRITION

With rates of overweight and obesity rising steadily in Canada, and increasing evidence linking excess fat and inactivity to health problems, we knew it was time to provide more information about nutrition. As a result, we are pleased to share The Fundamentals of Nutrition webinar series which is free, yes free(!), for you! We invite you to share this educational resource with your clients, friends, or family to help them better understand nutrition and make sense of the information they hear in the media.

HEALTHY EATING & WEIGHT LOSS COACH

For the majority of people, exercise alone is not enough to create lasting weight loss and health.

Knowing that rates of overweight and obesity are increasing across Canada, canfitpro has created the Healthy Eating & Weight Loss (HWL) Coach program. Choose to gain the certification and work with clients or learn simply to empower your own healthy choices.

The Healthy Eating & Weight Loss Coach program delivers information in a straightforward manner so you can confidently help clients make better choices; more often, lose weight, and lead healthier lives!

STRESS RESILIENCY COURSE

canfitpro recommends mindset as a key factor in achieving optimal health. Stats Canada reports that in 2014, 23% of Canadians aged 15 and up reported that most days were ‘quite a bit’ or ‘extremely stressful’.* Enhancing positive mindset and emotional state can assist you in handling daily and unforeseen stressors and support your quest for optimal health.

This course can provide you and your clients with the tools necessary to best handle stress and recharge your body. We want to ensure greater health outcomes as we all know stress has a direct effect on health. Fitness enthusiasts may better serve the community with stress resiliency.

Testimonials

There are so many amazing women in the industry and being able to connect with them is always an honour. As someone who has communicated on behalf of the fitness industry for the last nine years, is a professional classical East Indian dancer, and a doctoral student researching the effects of exercise on academic outcomes, attending the Women Who Influence event means having the opportunity to learn from a group of diverse women who are passionate and devoted to health and wellness.

I just finished taking the "Understanding a Fit Pregnancy" coarse and upon completion have already recommended the course!. It provides all necessary information to help clients feel safe while continuing at their own comfort levels as their bodies change. I obviously want my participants to feel safe comfortable, and after completing this course I myself now also feel more comfortable on all levels working with pregnant participants. Every pregnancy is different, all symptoms may be different and it is so important to know what is going on with your clients in order to properly be able to assist with their fitness and health goals and help ease any worries they may have.
