Anne  Parr  PRO TRAINER   Fitness  Instructor  Specialist     

 Senior Specialist       

My role as a Fitness Instructor Specialist has evolved far beyond being a basic "aerobic Instructor". As a group exercise expert, you will assist club members in a fun and motivating setting. A qualified Fitness Instructor Specialist can lead groups in various formats of new cardiovascular conditioning, muscle strength and endurance training, stretching and relaxation, or a calming cool-down. A canfitpro certified FIS is knowledgeable about different types of music, understands how to use music in a group setting, keeps current on the latest fitness trends and is able to give generalized advice about healthy living. 

NOW! VIRTUAL Classes another way to be there for your clients.


canfitpro provides a variety of learning opportunities including virtual and in-person 25-hour courses with a PRO TRAINER. Get started as soon as you purchase your certification package with the FIS self-directed education. Choose to fast-track your learning with the FIS course, facilitated by an expert PRO TRAINER. All certification packages come with a comprehensive manual to further develop your knowledge.

Theory & Practical Exam

canfitpro is very excited to be offering the long-awaited Study Preparation for our Fitness Instructor Specialist Certification to help our future instructors. While your course manual has plenty of review questions, this online program provides additional study resources to help you study the materials necessary to pass the exams and become a successful group fitness instructor. 

Once you've gone through your course manual, we recommend that you use these modules before your live course to test and build your understanding of the theoretical concepts so that you can actively engage in your live course with your PRO TRAINER. We strongly encourage you to write down any questions you have during your studies and ask them in the live course. This practice ensures you have the ability to focus on where you need the most help while refreshing what you have already taught yourself. 

We also recommend that you complete the remainder of the modules again after attending your live course as a tool to test your knowledge and direct your studying so that you are able to walk into your written and practical exams with confidence. It is not a replacement for attending your course as your PRO TRAINER covers much more in class. 

The course is divided into eleven modules – one for each chapter. Each module contains content, review questions, activities, and resources to guide your learning. You can navigate through the course using the navigation bar at the top of the page, or using the menu along the left side.
Best Practices for Success
  1. Follow the course preparation study resources.
    One of the best ways to focus your studies is to base your learning around the theory exam. Reviewing the modules not only reveals which subject areas the theory exam focuses on, but also how the exam is structured. Not everything you need to know as a fitness professional is contained in the modules, but if you gear your studying towards the exams you will feel more confident walking into it.

  2. Give yourself enough time to study before taking the theory exam. 
    To improve your chance for successful certification, we recommend you attempt the written exam three to four weeks after taking the Fitness Instructor Specialist course with your PRO TRAINER. This time frame is designed to help you synthesize the course information while it is still at the top of your mind.

  3. Study a little every day.
    You cannot cram a week’s worth of study into a few hours on the weekend. Commit to spending a little time on your FIS studies every day, even if you have to break it into several smaller increments. You will feel less overwhelmed and retain more information.  

  4. Focus on the material covered in class.
    Your PRO TRAINER will direct you during the course to which chapters are self-learning and which concepts need to be thoroughly understood. Instead of carefully reading and outlining every single word, spend more time on the concepts recommended. Take notes in the course to refer back to while studying.
