ACE-SPONSORED RESEARCH: Personalized, Community-based Exercise Programming: Translating Evidence Into Practice

Previous ACE-sponsored research demonstrated the effectiveness of exercise programming based on the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) Model in comparison to more standardized exercise programming. But does that translate to people out in the real world? This current study examines whether or not the ACE IFT Model can be applied to a real-world setting, while maintaining its high level of effectiveness.

ACE-SPONSORED RESEARCH: Investigating Cardiorespiratory Responses to Aqua Cycling

Aqua cycling is essentially a group indoor cycling class performed while immersed in water. Cycling in the water provides a low-impact environment and the resistance provided by the water allows for high levels of energy expenditure with little musculoskeletal strain on the body. But does aqua cycling provide an adequate training stimulus to yield health and fitness benefits, and how does it compare to a traditional land-based cycling class?

ACE-SPONSORED RESEARCH: Does Combining  MICT and HIIT Yield Greater Health Benefits?

In this latest ACE-sponsored study, researchers investigate whether an individualized program created by adhering to the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) Model that combined MICT with HIIT would be more effective than the more traditional MICT-only approach at yielding important health and fitness benefits and deriving more consistent responsiveness.
