Hey Exercise Professional: The world is your oyster!

Have you dreamed of putting  your exercise credentials to work across Canada, and possibly the world? Then the National Fitness Leadership Alliance is the accreditation association  for you. The NFLA is a partnership of not-for-profit organizations across Canada dedicated to the advancement of exercise accreditation and leadership. NFLA registered exercise professionals’ certifications are  transferable across Canada and beyond.

We are the first North American organization to be accepted into the International Confederation of Registers for Exercise Professionals. ICREPs  is an international partnership between fitness and physical activity bodies  around the world that registers exercise professionals in four continents, and ten countries. ICREPs collectively registers almost 1/4 million individual exercise professionals. In Canada, the NFLA registers over 10,000 certified exercise professionals. The NFLA association with ICREPs furthers our goals by:

  • providing international portability for Canadian registered exercise professionals through the establishment of registers for exercise professionals and international alignment of standards for practice.

  • allowing us to share leading practices with international exercise organizations, such as USREPs, UKReps, Fitness Australia and others

  • providing a Canada-wide CREPs-endorsed system of registers for Canadian exercise professionals,

In other words, if you move to, from, or around Canada your qualifications can be recognized in all  ICREPs-affiliated regions which include United States, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Belgium, Poland, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada.
