What Our Education Clients Have to Say …
I just wanted to get in touch and let you know that I just got a job at a privately owned gym as a group fitness instructor! I have always loved the idea of group fitness and this is my dream job. I teach my first class tomorrow morning and I just wanted to email and say thank you as I feel like you taught me so much and this would not have been possible without the help of yourself and CANFITPRO. I am still very nervous but I know that once I get out there and start, I will be fine!
Taking my PTS course with Heather was an absolute joy! She helped make sense of the information in the textbook and linked the science to real life in a really fun way. I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from her!
