ACE knows that when membership-based facilities employ certified exercise professionals and health coaches, members win. This is because properly credentialed professionals are more invested in serving others and invested in their careers, as demonstrated by the time and resources needed to attain their certification. Additionally, they have the education and tools to provide engaging, safe and effective programs for members. This results in better experiences and outcomes for clients, where happier clients may lead to increases in member retention, enhanced revenue production or even more likely, referrals.
In today’s world, it’s easier than ever to identify properly credentialed exercise professionals and health coaches via the United States Registry of Exercise Professionals (USREPS), an internationally recognized registry of professionals who hold current NCCA-accredited certifications. This is great news for health clubs who employ, or are exploring the possibility of employing, only certified exercise professionals and health coaches from programs accredited by third parties like the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
