American Council on Exercise

Over the past 25 years, ACE has become an established resource for both fitness professionals and consumers, providing comprehensive, unbiased, scientific research impacting the fitness industry and validating ourselves as the country’s trusted authority on fitness.

The International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) recommend that club owners and individuals only hire personal trainers with certifications from agencies accredited through the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) or an equivalent accrediting organization. Currently, the American Council on Exercise is one of only a handful of certifying agencies accredited by the NCCA.
