Canfitpro Pts Exam Case Study

Practical Examination

by margaret

I think that Can Fit Pro should hold workshops for the practical examination. The program needs to to develop a written as well a practical workshop component for the exercises and use of machines in real gyms. Many people do not have memberships in gyms and many are not familiar with the latest equipment. For example where I did my Can Fit Program it was a kickboxing centre and the people who run the program did not need to use machines, for their business. I thought it was great but now I have to do my practical at the Good life Fitness centre and am totally unfamiliar about how to spot and use these machines.
Thank you

Can-Fit-Pro may be able to certify personal trainers in a short amount of time and with minimal cost - but would you trust your health & fitness to this individual? Do you really think that being Can-Fit-Pro certified is enough? NOT A CHANCE. There is a 4 year University degree called Kinesiology - and even those graduates aren't automatically qualified to train - they have to take a 6 station practical exam, earn hours of training and then take a theory exam to become personal trainers on top of their degree. The Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology is the only body that certifies an appropriately educated and trained personal trainer. There should be no other exception in my opinion. Your health and fitness level - YOUR BODY - is too important to chance it on an uneducated individual.

More Practical Training Needed

I recently completed the Can Fit Pro personal trainer's course & exam. It gives you the bare minimum that you need. I do not feel that confident to train clients on my own after taking just the Can Fit Pro course especially ones that aren't beginners or that have various problems. The course includes a practical exam but should include a practical component as part of the course as it is basically just theory. It is great that you can become certified quickly with Can Fit Pro but I think the course should be longer & include assignments on designing workouts for various clients which you go through with someone explaining the proper technique of the machines or exercises so you get experience in the practical aspect of personal training.


more education needed

I do not think too highly of Can Fit Pro's PT Certification. I am certified through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. In order to become certified I had to go to college for 2 years. I took advanced classes in various areas in fitness such as anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, nutrition, ect.

On top of all the theory I gained a lot of practical experience. I just think its a little unfair that I receive all this education to get certified and others can do it through Can Fit Pro and become certified so quickly.

The Personal Training Specialist Exam

We recommend that candidates attempt the theory exam approximately three (3) weeks after taking the course. This time frame is recommended in order to allow candidates to properly prepare for the exam. Those who choose the option to progress and become a certified Personal Training Specialist will complete a theory and practical exam. These two components assess the candidate's theoretical knowledge, rapport building skills, and practical application of fitness theory to train clients. The theory exam consists of multiple choice questions, plus a written client case study. The practical exam is an actual workout with a client that is evaluated by your PRO TRAINER.
