Chance to Win a Free iPad, Work with Older Adults


Enrolling as a fitness professional in the AARP Fitness & Wellness Program already has many new exciting benefits, but if you enroll during the month of April, you’ll automatically be entered into a drawing to win a free new second generation Apple iPad worth $499.

To enter the contest, simply follow the instructions on the contest entry page and complete all of the required information. You’ll be one step closer to iPad technology and on the exciting new path to an incredibly rewarding opportunity to motivate and inspire adults ages 50+ in your community to lead active, healthier lives.

The annual enrollment fee for the AARP Fitness & Wellness Program is only $50 and includes 0.2 ACE eCredits (worth 0.2 CECs toward recertification), as well as access to many tools to help you promote your fitness services to AARP’s millions of members.

Just last month, ACE and AARP launched an all-new Trainer Toolkit—a collection of free marketing materials, including flyers, eye-catching posters and special-offer promotion cards—to help you attract more clients. All trainers enrolled in the program can personalize the flyers with their photos and contact information, and download all materials at no additional cost.

AARP has millions of members ages 50 to 75, which represent 41 percent of the U.S. population, one-third of the online population, and individuals who control more than 75 percent of the nation’s wealth.

There is no better time for fitness professionals to serve this growing, affluent population segment. Of AARP’s millions of members, 25 percent have expressed an interest in learning more about health and fitness, which offers ACE-certified Personal Trainers, Advanced Health & Fitness Specialists, Group Fitness Instructors and Lifestyle & Weight Management Coaches an unprecedented opportunity to share their passion and knowledge for fitness with individuals who are redefining expectations regarding age, vitality and quality of life.

And don’t miss this one-time opportunity to walk away with the most coveted hand-held technology available today! The grand-prize winner will be announced on May 7 and it could be you.
