ACE strongly supports Step It Up! The Surgeon General’s Call to Action on Walking and Walkable Communities as part of our mission and commitment to fighting the dual epidemics of obesity and inactivity, and creating a culture of health that values and supports physically active lifestyles.                                                      

We have published a new toolkit that is available at no charge. “Walk This Way! A Guide for Developing Community and Individual Walking Programs” is a demonstration of our commitment to support the landmark Call to Action. It has been designed to help fitness professionals “Step It Up!” and lead safe and effective walking programs, and become advocates for more walkable communities. 

We encourage you to use the resources—to share them and add to them—as you Step It Up! Please feel free to contact if we can be of any assistance.
