(Apr. 9, 2013) -American Council on Exercise (ACE) has teamed up with Total Gym®, the world's leading manufacturer of functional bodyweight training equipment, to provide online education for certified personal trainers. The collaboration with ACEis Total Gym's first foray into online education. Known for GRAVITY, the company's premier fitness and wellness program, Total Gym currently offers world-class education for instructors looking to be GRAVITY certified in small group, multi-client and Pilates programming. The ACE Total Gym Introductory Course, developed by Total Gym and led by Rob Glick, renowned fitness professional and Total Gym GRAVITY® Master Trainer, is not a GRAVITY certification course, but instead focuses on providing one-to-one personal training education, giving certified personal trainers with a wide variety of backgrounds the opportunity to learn how to use a Total Gym incline bodyweight trainer to create fun, efficient and effective workouts for their clients while earning necessary continuing education credits (CECs). The comprehensive online course covers the essential methodologies and basic exercise movements in connection with incline bodyweight training as well as how to integrate the ACE Integrated Fitness Training®model to develop workouts on Total Gym that appropriately challenge a trainer's clients. "We're excited about this online course for a number of reasons - one, it will give fitness professionals a greater understanding of how they can use Total Gym in their sessions, and two, it will give them more ways to stand out in a competitive industry," said ACE Professional Education Director Anthony J. Wall. "We hope to collaborate with Total Gym on more projects in the future." One of the most widely sold commercial and home fitness units on the market, Total Gym can be found in over 14,000 physical therapy clinics, athletic training facilities, hospitals, universities, professional sports teams and health clubs as well as 4 million homes worldwide. "It's very likely that personal trainers will encounter a Total Gym unit, whether at a client's home, in a gym or at a studio," said President of Total Gym Jesse Campanaro. "The versatility that a Total Gym unit offers makes it an ideal machine for personal trainers and for home fitness because it allows you to target every muscle group in the body using one compact machine." The ACE Total Gym Introductory Course is available at www.ACEfitness.org along with several self-paced online courses on a variety of different health and fitness topics.
