What types of memberships are offered by canfitpro?

There are three types of membership:

  • Professional membership (includes Student membership)
  • Business Rewards Membership (BRM)
  • Consumer Fitness membership


What are the differences between the types of memberships?

The Professional/Student 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 membership, you must show proof of student status at a high school or post-secondary institution for the current academic year. The Student membership 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, as it is a membership which benefits the entire club (job postings, incentives, and discounts for staff on certifications, conferences, etc.) The Consumer Fitness membership is most suitable for fitness enthusiasts who have an interest in learning about the latest fitness, health, and wellness topics to keep their workouts and lifestyle as optimal as possible.
