Posted: Feb 01, 2021 in ACE Press Releases
San Diego, Calif., Feb., 1, 2020—The American Council on Exercise (ACE) and Trainerize are proud to announce a new partnership that will empower exercise professionals and health coaches to better engage and support clients to make healthy, lasting lifestyle changes. By integrating ACE behavior change strategies into the Trainerize digital platform, it allows personal trainers and health coaches to leverage a powerful combination programming expertise and technology.
This new partnership is twofold and provides:
- Education for exercise professionals who would like to upskill with behavior change skills. Exercise professionals who may be interested in learning more about how to integrate behavior change concepts and techniques into their client programs and sessions or become an ACE-certified Health Coach will have the opportunity to access ACE education including the health coach study program, behavior change specialist program and weight management specialist program.
- Technology integration for exercise professionals and health coaches who seek a better way to connect with their clients virtually. Through the Trainerize platform, exercise professionals and health coaches will be able to instantly and remotely connect with clients to help guide them through the process of making lasting lifestyle changes.
“ACE is excited to partner with Trainerize to integrate behavior change strategies into a leading digital platform,” said Cedric X. Bryant, Ph.D., ACE president and chief science officer. “The more exercise professionals who understand and know how to effectively implement behavior change strategies to support and improve their client’s health and fitness will result in more people living active lives with reduced risk of chronic disease.”
The ACE/Trainerize partnership is significant for the fitness industry. By fully integrating ACE’s behavior change philosophy, the Mover Method™, and other evidence-based content, the Trainerize platform, exercise professionals can easily learn about behavior change science and how to incorporate this into their daily work with clients. This education empowers exercise professionals to better support their clients by helping them set and achieve healthy lifestyle goals, all through one centralized location. It also will provide health coaches a user-friendly technology application to communicate directly with their clients.
“We are extremely excited to be joining forces the ACE to help exercise professionals take their knowledge and skills to the next level,” said Sharad Mohan, Managing Director of Trainerize. “With how drastically COVID-19 has disrupted clients’ health and fitness routines, it’s never been so important to bring technology and behavior change together and put them directly into the hands of exercise professionals. Together, we’ll be giving exercise professionals what they need to support clients who might otherwise be struggling to stay engaged with their fitness journeys.”
