National Fitness Leadership Alliance


The Fitness Division is also represented on the National Fitness Leadership Alliance (NFLA). The NFLA is a collective and collaborative partnership dedicated to developing, promoting and recognizing the use of national guidelines and standards for fitness leadership and certification thereby leading to improved quality and safety.

NFLACANADA Positioning Statement

NFLA's main focus is on the development and stewardship of national standards for fitness leader registration across Canada, and acting as an advocate for fitness leadership at the National level.  Our involvement with ICREPs will further these goals, providing international recognition for our Canadian fitness professionals, and allowing for the sharing of best practices internationally.

Performance Standards

The National Fitness Leadership Alliance recently updated the Performance Standards for each of the module areas. SPRA will continue to implement these standards through the modules that we offer and will be updating the modules over the next year to ensure that fitness delivery meets the highest standards in the industry.
