On the heels of today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act, American Council on Exercise President and CEO Scott Goudeseune released the following statement emphasizing the importance for all Americans to focus on leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
“As America moves into a new age of healthcare, it is now up to Americans to recognize that the key to being a healthier nation starts with embracing a healthy lifestyle. A significant portion of healthcare costs are preventable through the long term adoption of exercise, proper nutrition and wellness programs. Making better choices at home and at the workplace will have an incredible impact on our overall health. At the American Council on Exercise, we will continue our mission to build bridges between the fitness industry and corporate America, provide education and research for the public, and expand our army of well-educated fitness professionals dedicated to empowering Americans to live their most fit lives."
