This August is the canfitpro world fitness expo in Toronto. It is the largest conference in Canada and delivers new exciting opportunities for trainers to experience new trends and specialize in disciplines that they have a passion for.

As a fitness professional it is crucial to engage in continuing education and stay current. The evolution of training methodology and techniques is ever changing. Professionals in every field, like doctors, lawyers, accountants and others attend annual conferences and seminars to enhance their knowledge to best provide service for their clients. Fitness professionals must also do the same if they are to be viewed as a professional.

We are experiencing rapid shifts in demand by the public as to what they want in their training. The sheer number of programs and disciplines are exhausting and success for the trainer is contingent on specializing and differentiating yourself from the others.

Certifications and seminars provide you, the trainer, with the continuing education and skills to stand above your competition and make you more marketable.

This is where Fitness kickboxing and MMA is one of the highest in-demand offerings in the market. Personal trainers will fill their personal training and small group team/specialty training time slots and your studio floor. A pair of focus pads, gloves and a 12 foot by 12 foot floor space is all you need. Simple beginner level combinations will provide your client with a challenging cardio/resistance routine and the level of difficulty and intensity can be modified to suit your client’s skill and fitness level.

At this year’s expo for the first time ever, as president of Fitness Kickboxing Canada and creator of our education programs, I will personally be offering the opportunity to certify as a Fitness Kickboxing Instructor in levels 1, 2 and 3.

Learn “Real” Kickboxing punch and kick techniques from beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Actual combinations designed by a Certified Competitive Kickboxing/Mixed Martial Arts Coach and Personal Trainer. From the warm-up, hand wrapping, stance, footwork, boxing & kickboxing drills and combinations utilizing focus pads and partner training, abs routine and cool down stretches. This workshop is designed for the ultimate in authenticity and fitness ensuring a safe and efficient class or personal training session.

In addition to new skills to enhance your client training, as the canfitpro "preferred MMA Certification Provider", I will be recruiting Course conductors to teach our course curriculum across Canada from those taking the certification course with me. If you are interested in becoming an FKCI Course Conductor please contact us with your resume prior to the certification course date.

If you are interested in specializing in Fitness Kickboxing or MMA, your professional development can be accommodated by registering for one of the FKCI Intensive conference certification courses, which will kick start your career.
