Ace Fitness was not even on the list

fitnessnews

Recently we had a bad experience with Ace Fitness.  After that we did some research to see if they were considered a respectable fitness education provider.  Well. We were not surprised when the very respectable Precision Nutrition did not even list them as a Fitness Education provider.  Precision Nutrition is considered the Gold Standard in the Fitness and Nutrition Industry, one has to get on a waiting list to take their courses.   However when Precision Nutrition published a Career in Fitness report then did not even list Ace Fitness.  Which we were happy to witness.  For Personal Trainer Certification, Precision Nutrition listed

 

Just like us, Precision Nutrition did not buy all the colorful marketing and sales tactics that Ace Fitness puts out there.  Unfortunately many young minds do bite the “become a personal” trainer sales pitch, hopefully the word gets out there so young minds choose the gold standard if their goal is to become a personal trainer.

Many are not aware that Todd Galati who was supposed to be a “research scientist and the Resource Center manager” for Ace Fitness and “Director of Credentialing” all of sudden is no longer working for ACE Fitness. When we called everyone at Ace Fitness told us that they cannot discuss why he left.  However, Todd Galati was extremely unprofessional and hostile to me.  Which I did contact Mr. Scott Goudeseune.  Mr. Scott Goudeseune did not deny my accusations.   However in few weeks Todd Galati was gone.  What a relief !!

To conclude we at FitnessEducators.ca warn anyone considering Ace Fitness. to take our advice, plus, follow the advice of Precision Nutriton, who are considered the gold standard.  We agree with Precision Nutrition not to list ACE Fitness.

We strongly recommend:

Sarcopenic obesity (a phrase coined in 2000) is difficult to easily detect

Over the next 20 years, the aging of the population and obesity epidemic will collide. These two aircraft carriers of health burden are expected to lead to the nation’s growing health issues. First, aging is associated with a dramatic and progressive loss of muscle mass and quality, which partly leads to a diminished functional ability, increased susceptibility to disease and a declining physical quality of life leading to the possibility of physical dependence. Individuals who lose significant muscle mass are considered to be sarcopenic and, as a result, they typically have low appendicular lean mass relative to body height. Second, advancing age leads to their increased susceptibility to weight gain that contributes to development of obesity, along with a host of cardiovascular, metabolic and functional consequences. Accordingly, there has been a rising concern that older adults who possess both low amounts of appendicular muscle and high levels of adipose tissue are particularly vulnerable to physical disability and health consequences. Low levels of muscle relative to the total fat mass clearly predisposes to metabolic dysregulation and biomechanical disadvantages in performing tasks of daily life against gravity (e.g., stair climbing, chair rising, etc…

Comprehensive Program Design Workshop for FITNESS LEADERS

Comprehensive Program Design Workshop

Fitness workshop VancouverProgram design is the essence of what Personal Trainers do. The better we are at it, the more our clients will adhere to the program and receive the benefits of an active lifestyle. The first half of this workshop will cover how to use client information such as lifestyle, occupational/sport demands and orthopaedic factors in the fitness program design. Students will learn to program based on fitness testing results and qualitative analysis of common fitness tests, as well as how to rate biomotor abilities, qualify the client for programs, assess core requirements and manipulate acute program variables. Linear periodization will be discussed and non-linear periodization programming will be introduced. The second half of the workshop will discuss essential elements that go into designing a program for recreational and varsity level athletes. Key issues surrounding high performance will be identified and a framework for high performance and fitness conditioning provided. Students will learn how to perform a systematic sport analysis and how to assess readiness for sport conditioning. In summary, this workshop will provide a practical methodology and progression model for safely incorporating sport conditioning modalities for the client who may be starting from a sedentary lifestyle, wanting to prepare for a sports activity.
