IDEA Health & Fitness Association would like to congratulate the American Council on Exercise (ACE) on its 25th year of service. “Since its founding in 1985, ACE has been committed to keeping fitness professionals on the forefront of the latest fitness trends and exercise science, along with protecting consumers from unsafe and ineffective fitness products and advice,” says Scott Goudeseune, ACE’s president and chief executive officer (on the left). Currently, more than 50,000 ACE-certified fitness professionals hold more than 55,000 certifications.

“Watching ACE grow from the time we founded it 25 years ago has been a very rewarding experience,” state Peter and Kathie Davis, co-founders of IDEA. “We are excited to witness more growth and to see ACE’s continuing commitment to excellence in our industry.”
