Joining Forces and ACE®

Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative that provides ways for every American to reconnect with and give back to our service members and their families. ACE is honored to support this important program by providing a way for fitness professionals, businesses and organizations across the country to pledge 1 million fitness service hours to actively deployed military reservists, National Guard members and their immediate families. Our goal is to enrich their quality of life through safe and effective exercise and physical activity.

We’re committed to connecting certified fitness professional with consumers. ACE is a progressive organization attuned to the most current industry trends and key health issues facing our country. With adult and childhood obesity being a major crisis affecting Americans in the 21st century, ACE is devoted to educating consumers about the critical need to regularly engage in physical activity. We seek to inspire, motivate and encourage America to make healthy living an integral part of our society. Joining Forces is an important collaboration on a growing list of initiatives including the Let's Move Campaign and the President's Active Lifestyle Award that align with our mission to work at the legislative level to bring fitness and healthy lifestyle education to communities across the country.
