"The Exercise is Medicine® Credential
In 2007, ACSM's Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) campaign was initiated to promote exercise as a health strategy for the general public and to promote a collaboration between health care providers and exercise professionals. The EIM initiative now includes a credential program that will provide exercise professionals with the opportunity to work closely with the medical community and provide numerous additional benefits to the certified professional."
This is a wonderful collaboration to finally have between the medical and fitness industries. The EIM (http://www.exerciseismedicine.org) campaign stared many years ago and had already made great strides in promoting healthier lifestyles. I'm so glad to be even more of a part of it now!
The rest of my day:
Taught Athletic Conditioning, Kettlebells, and Core, then took to my favorite path to squeeze in some miles before my next two classes and clients.
