Happy to hear that you are reading the new manual and that you are pleased so far with the IFT Model. Personally, I am very impressed! So impressed that my company is now an educational partner with the American Council on Exercise.
The American Council on Exercise has raised the bar much higher with this new model and certification.
I hold all of ACE’s certification as you saw from my profile and feel strongly that this model is an excellent place for new trainers to start and veteran trainers to improve their game.
Sometime ago I posed a question regarding exercise programming solutions and which one is being utilized by certified professionals utilizing this portal. I was curious to find out if anyone was using the IFT Model. I was quite surprised to find out that even though there are hundreds of ACE Certified Personal Trainers on this portal no comments were posted indicating that the IFT Model is being utilized.
I am interested in knowing among the throngs of ACE Certified Professionals on this portal who is utilizing it and also to learn their feedback.
Thanks Shawn for your post.
Jason, I am very familiar with the ACSM approach having passed four of their exam. Too, and am also an educational partner with ACE and haven’t come across that information.
I’ve looked in all my ACSM textbook and for the most part I have all the recent ones and can’t seem to locate it. Would you forward me the reference? I’d be happy to see it.
