Company History

canfitpro was founded in 1993 as a voice for all fitness professionals. Establishing itself as a member-driven education company, canfitpro hosted a conference and trade show for fitness professionals in London, Ontario.

In 1996, after three successful years in London, the conference was relocated to Toronto, where it grew rapidly, offering an increasingly diverse curriculum and larger trade show. With breakout sessions for all types of fitness professionals within the industry, conference attendance has grown rapidly year over year.

By 1998, the growth of the company necessitated that the conference be moved to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Canada’s largest convention centre. That same year, canfitpro’s Certification department was launched, offering affordable, accessible certification for personal trainers and group
fitness instructors.

In the years since, canfitpro has continued to grow, with over 22,000 members across Canada and over 25 countries. Now offering multiple certification designations, canfitpro has become not only the largest provider of education in the Canadian fitness industry, but combined with its conference and trade show, has acquired the reputation of being one of the top fitness organizations in the world.
