ACE Asks Fitness Pros to Help Military Families Get Fit
Making News:Are you looking for a way to give back to your community? The American Council on Exercise (ACE) may have a solution. The organization has announced its commitment to “Joining Forces,” a government initiative dedicated to helping families of U.S. service members. ACE’s aim is to help military families improve fitness levels. “In an effort to give back to these families and in the spirit of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative, ACE is uniting fitness professionals, businesses and organizations across the country to provide at least one million hours of fitness training services at no cost to family members of actively deployed military reservists and National Guard Members,” says an ACE press release. Pledge your support in the form of personal training sessions, fitness facility memberships or group training. To help promote the cause, ACE will give participating individuals and business owners a “toolkit” that includes marketing fliers, a customizable press release, social media badges and more.
