Listen up fitness pros! Thinking of a way to say “thank you” to our soldiers and their families? The American Council on Fitness is encouraging fitness professionals, businesses and organizations across the country to collectively pledge 1 million fitness service hours to actively deployed military reservists, National Guard members and their immediate families through the White House’s Joining Forces program.
Joining Forces is a comprehensive national initiative that provides ways for every citizen to reconnect with and give back to service members and their families. Whether it’s through fitness, education or employment, this program asks all sectors of society to lend a hand.
ACE has currently completed 11% of its goal for 1 million fitness service hours. If you are a personal trainer, why not offer a military family free workout sessions? Own a gym or training facility? Donate a free month’s membership.
If you or a loved one is actively deployed military or National Guard, click here to find a certified fitness professional in your area who has pledged to offer fitness training services.
