Some may be spending today wondering about the meaning of 11/11/11, but it's also Veterans Day — a day to take pause and salute our veterans.
Recognizing the sacrifice that service members have made for our country, ACE is proud to support our veterans, active duty members and their families, military spouses, and dependents.
We are honored to support Joining Forces, a national initiative of First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, by committing to provide 1 million fitness service hours to activated reservists and National Guard Members, and their immediate families. We know that your sacrifice comes with great challenges and stress, so we hope our commitment will help you prioritize your health and fitness.
In addition, as a Military Friendly School, ACE supports veterans who are looking to get back to work once they return home. All ACE exams to become an ACE-certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Health Coach or Advanced Health & Fitness Specialist qualify for reimbursement under the G.I. Bill, so veterans, active mlitary and eligible spouses and dependents can easily begin their fitness profession.
Finally, if you're you a military spouse looking for a portable career in the fitness industry, MyCAA will cover the fitness certification study materials, exam fees and fitness continuing education course fees.
ACE thanks you and is honored to serve YOU.
