Across the Profession
ACE serves as a leader in the health and fitness industry by creating and delivering quality certification programs and continuing education options, and by partnering with colleges and universities on curriculum programs aimed at educating future professionals. We also serve as an advocate for our profession among policymakers both independently and through our work as a founding member of the Coalition for the Registration of Exercise Professionals, a nonprofit established to secure recognition of registered exercise professionals as health providers so that they may make structured physical activity more accessible and safe for all.
Health Coaching & Behavior‑Change Counseling
Research has proven time and again that instilling healthy behavior patterns, nutrition and physical activity is the key to achieving sustainable, healthy change. ACE is leading the movement to making those services more accessible to people from all walks of life by offering the only Health Coach Certification accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and by partnering with organizations nationwide that are working to incorporate behavior-change services into the places where people work, live, play and go to school.
For the Public
As part of our mission to increase access to unbiased, science-based health and fitness information, ACE provides consumer friendly information to the public online and through partnerships with leaders in nonprofits, business, education and healthcare. That information, anchored in expertise from physicians, psychologists, registered dietitians and healthcare providers, gives people from all walks of life the resources they need to pursue their own journey to sustainable, healthy change at no cost.
