Putting the Pro in canfitpro

Alright, so we’ve recently admitted we’re not fitness professionals. But that’s why we leave that to the experts – our awesome clients. And you know they’re a pro when it’s literally their first name.

canfitprocanfitpro is the leading provider of fitness and wellness education. They work to empower people with fun and effective physical activity by delivering accessible and affordable fitness education. canfitpro was founded in 1993 as a voice for all fitness professionals. In the years since, the company has grown rapidly, with almost 100,000 members across Canada and over 25 countries. Now offering multiple certification designations, canfitpro has grown to not only be the largest provider of education in the Canadian fitness industry, but has also acquired the reputation as being one of the top fitness organizations in the world.

That spot at the top wouldn’t be possible without some helping hands. “Our largest event has over 400 volunteers,” says Tammy Lyle-Gravlev, Volunteer and Academy Experience Coordinator for canfitpro. Volunteers put their best foot forward assisting with the information booth, registration, IT consultation, social media and more.canfitpro

Before using VolunteerLocal, canfitpro was using a paper application to manage those hundreds of volunteers, which then had to be manually entered. “It was a very time consuming process. Volunteerlocal has lightened my workload, which has allowed for the opportunity to focus on other projects,” says Lyle-Gravlev.

“The online database is easy to use, and gives our volunteers a lot more freedom in selecting shifts and jobs that they are interested in. They’ve been happy with the streamlined process. I would definitely recommend VolunteerLocal.”
