Welcome to canfitpro 2023 blog - Featured Image

It’s been 30 years since canfitpro got its start...three decades of providing training and certification to fitness professionals and uniting the industry. In 30 years, canfitpro has grown to include more than 25,000 certified fitness professionals and 100,000+ members.

It has taken courage to go through the ups and downs of the industry throughout these years, and that’s why the theme for this year’s event is precisely that: COURAGE. Courage from all our members, PRO TRAINERS, partners, sponsors, exhibitors, associates, friends, and family to keep going, to never back down and continue promoting health and fitness in Canada.

canfitpro 2023 continues pushing this strength by offering the biggest event of the year with a dynamic program of lectures, workshops, keynotes, and networking opportunities that will challenge you to push your limits, embrace new ideas, and tap into the courage within you. Learn from the world’s best experts in fitness, wellness, and nutrition. Visit the trade show to see and try the latest new products and programs set to change how we take care of our health.


This year we will continue our hybrid model offering over 230 sessions in-person and online, presented by 175+ world-renowned experts who will educate, challenge, and lift you up to take your fitness career and business to the next level.
