Introducing our ACE Health Coach Certification

At ACE, our mission to help people live their most fit lives guides everything we do. It inspires us to forge partnerships within and outside of our industry, create continuing education for fitness professionals, and improve our outreach to people who need to improve their health.

Now, that mission has inspired us to introduce the ACE Health Coach.

As fitness professionals, you know that just working out with your clients once a week isn’t going to change their lives. And you know building a relationship with them isn’t the only key to long-term success.

Becoming an ACE-certified Health Coach will help you expand your knowledge of fitness and nutrition, and teach you how to truly maximize the strong relationships you already have with your clients. It will teach you the principles of behavioral modification, and how you can help people overcome emotional barriers that keep them from achieving their goals every day.

Two out of three Americans are classified as overweight or obese, many of whom have struggled with weight their entire lives. They need a teacher, an expert, a coach. Someone who will inspire them to be a better version of themselves every single day.

Earning our NCCA-accredited ACE Health Coach Certification will help you be that person. It will help you develop a relationship where you and your client are on the same wavelength, where you know when they’re struggling or when they want to give up. It will help you give them the proper fitness and nutrition advice and, eventually, it will be the tool you need to help them make long-lasting changes.

In addition to helping you grow professionally, this certification will make you more attractive to both corporations looking to improve the health of their employees and to health clubs looking for qualified managers to lead their companies.

From now until Sept. 30, 2012, we’d like to offer you a special pre-sale opportunity of 20% off either of our ACE Health Coach bundles. Both our Standard and Premium options feature a toolbox of study resources including our new ACE Health Coach Manual featuring content by award-winning personal trainer Jonathan Ross, behavioral psychologist Michael Mantell, Ph.D., and registered dietitian Natalie Digate Muth, M.D., M.P.H. 

If you have any questions, please give us a call at 888-825-3636, or email us at
