HELPS THE AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EXERCISE (ACE)
REACH ONE MILLION HOURS OF PLEDGED FITNESS TRAINING SERVICES
TO NATIONAL GUARD & MILITARY RESERVISTS AND THEIR FAMILIES
PFP today announced its commitment to Joining Forces, a comprehensive national initiative created to provide U.S. service members and their families the support they respectfully deserve. Joining Forces supports activated National Guard and Reservists and their immediate families by encouraging industry fitness professionals, businesses and organizations to recognize the need and devote time to enrich the quality of life and the health of military members and their families through fitness.
The American Council on Exercise (ACE) is facilitating pledges. Fitness services from all fitness professionals, organizations and businesses, ACE related or not, are encouraged to support Joining Forces. With a collective goal to pledge 1 million hours of fitness services at no cost to activated military Reservists and National Guard members and their families, PFP has joined an elite list of fitness service providers around the nation in support of this important initiative. Those interested in joining ACE in its effort to facilitate one million hours of pledged fitness training services can visit www.acefitness.org/joiningforces.
