ACE made an outstanding debut presenting two popular workshops—the ACE Integrated Fitness TrainingTM Workshop and Functional Assessment and Training Workshop—in Southern Asia.
The reception of ACE’s continuing education programs in India and Thailand was so successful that ACE plans to return to the lands of the tiger and of smiles, respectively, with additional live workshops this May and June.
ACE and its partner Fit IndiaTM [an affiliate of Fitness Innovations (Thailand) Ltd., ACE's educational partner in Asia] first introduced the ACE Integrated Fitness Training Workshop to an enthusiastic crowd of fitness professionals in Mumbai, India, on January 7, followed the next day by ACE’s Functional Assessment and Training Workshop.
Both workshops, taught by Fabio Comana, M.A., M.S., an exercise physiologist with ACE, reported an excellent showing with some 60 participants in the first workshop and an equally high attendance for the second.
The testimonials of the students speak to the power of ACE’s live workshops to inspire, motivate and provide essential technical and professional know-how to fitness professionals everywhere.
Divya Ramprasa: It was a thoroughly enjoyable and thought-provoking two days. I don't have to mention this, but Fabio being the leader he is in this subject was just incredible. I think it's very important for trainers to continuously keep abreast of everything new in the industry and such workshops help and motivate us to do this more. It was also great to see so many trainers coming together, like-minded, dynamic and surging to learn more and give back more to health and society.
ACE attributes much of the success of this learning experience to the professional organizational skills of Radha Krishnaswamy, Vinata Shetty and their Fit India team. Comana offers a heartfelt thanks to all of the enthusiastic attendees and the Fit India team for their hard work and for their significant contributions to making ACE’s debut in Southern Asia such a success.
Jain Namita: It was a great opportunity for me to understand the fundamental reasoning of the latest additions in the ACE Personal Trainer Manual from Fabio, but more than that, I liked the fact that he was affable and open to interaction.
On January 9, Comana traveled to New Delhi, India, to present the ACE Integrated Fitness Training Workshop to yet another large, captive and enthusiastic audience of fitness professionals.
Nisha Varma: I attended the ACE IFT and Movement Screening workshops in Mumbai and New Delhi and was delighted with the simplicity, precision and clarity of Fabio’s teaching. It was great attending the sessions with Fabio as our trainer and I would like to book my place in all the ACE workshops, which are planned by FIT INDIA this year. The ACE Personal Trainer "New Manual" fear has been put to rest. It was great to take part in the practicals, which helped in reinforcing the subject. Finally, it is always great to interact with friends and colleagues from the fitness industry at these events. I thank the FIT INDIA team for making this possible.”
Following a ‘soft launch’ of the ACE Integrated Fitness Training Workshop in Thailand, Comana brought the first eight-hour ACE Integrated Fitness Training Workshop to Bangkok, Thailand, on January 11, courtesy of Fitness Innovations (Thailand), Ltd. and Suzanne Hosley, a long-time strategic partner with ACE.
The attendees traveled to the event from all over Asia, including Korea, Indonesia and Malaysia, underscoring ACE’s global reach and position at the forefront of educational programming, serving both existing and aspiring fitness professionals and their clientele.
Hari Hara: The workshop had the best combination of theory, practical, knowledge, experience, fun, etc.
