Gia sou Michali,
You might want to contact ACE for that information or check on their website. As far as getting a working visa to come here, it’s a different matter and almost impossible to achieve, unless you do it under a student visa or get sponsored by a US company (this is almost impossible unless you have skills which are very rare to find). You have a better chance to stay and work in Europe. I know Switzerland, Germany and England offer some great employment to those in the fitness industry. There are many sites which you can search online and look for these types of positions. I know things in Greece are not ideal for work right now and especially in the fitness industry, but I hope you find your way.
