ACE seeks public policies that make highly qualified, science-based, interdisciplinary coaching, counseling, and support for sustainable behavioral change a functional, integral component of the nation’s healthcare continuum.
ACE seeks public policies that position well-qualified health and fitness professionals as members of the patient-centered healthcare team, particularly for the prevention and treatment of lifestyle-related diseases.
Preventive interventions are more effective where people spend significant portions of their time. Thus, ACE seeks public policies that incentivize investment in wellness interventions through the workplace rooted in science-based physical activity and sound nutrition to establish lifelong healthy behavioral patterns.
Because empirical evidence strongly suggests that professionally led physical activity leads to sustainable behavioral change, ACE seeks public policies that enable the use of accessible public spaces for physical activity programming facilitated by highly qualified health and fitness professionals.
