AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EXERCISE
The American Council on Exercise (ACE) Club Program was developed to support the growth of clubs by raising the expertise of fitness staff. For the life of the membership, clubs will save on ACE certification, educational resources, recruiting, marketing, training programs and much more. Once a health facility joins the ACE Club Program, it will be listed on ACE's Club Locator. The club will also be given a password to post jobs to more than 40,000 ACE-certified professionals. In addition, the club is immediately eligible for all membership benefits. Furthermore, the club will be issued a club account number that its staff may use for certification registration, manual and study materials purchases — all at preferred club pricing.

The Fusion Elliptical Runner from CCS Fitness blends the low-impact quality of elliptical engineering with the freedom of a treadmill. The Fusion's stride length can be customized to the user's individual stride. With the touch of a button, the user can adjust the stride length from 21 inches to 31 inches and experience the freedom of running with the low-impact technology found in elliptical machines. The longer stride length lets the user reach higher speeds than currently available, and the stride length can be varied at any time during exercise. A tricolor speedometer quickly lets users know if they are meeting their goal speed, while the easy-to-read LED matrix relays stride length, total calories, distance, calories per hour, speed, time, resistance level and heart rate data.
