Health policy makers understand the role regular exercise plays in combating increasing rates of heart disease, diabetes and obesity. Less apparent is the indispensable role fitness professionals have in improving their clients' health.
While our life's work revolves around health, policy makers still need to recognize this. To help them better understand our role and responsibility, America's health and fitness professionals are coming together through the Grassroots Initiative to ensure that our industry is represented in discussing the issues that are important to us.

We have a powerful story to tell and now is the time to spread the word about our industry's critical role in promoting public health..
