New Partnership Helps 53,000 Health and Fitness Professionals Capitalize on Technology to Improve Client Engagement

A new partnership between amSTATZ and the American Council on Exercise (ACE) provides health and fitness professionals more affordable access to software aimed at helping them streamline business practices and improve client engagement.

The move aligns with a rising trend of using technology like apps and wearable devices to track physical activity, increase motivation, and even schedule sessions. Three-quarters of online consumers in the United States now own a fitness technology product, according to the Consumer Electronics Association.

“In addition to helping professionals more easily run a business or manage multiple clients, the partnership with amSTATZ gives ACE Certified Professionals worldwide the ability to deepen connections with their clients by providing a way to coach them around the clock,” said ACE President and CEO Scott Goudeseune. “That type of engagement will help them reach more people, and ultimately, broaden their impact.”

As part of the partnership, ACE Certified Professionals receive an exclusive discount on the service, and free one-on-one assistance and technical support.

“We are thrilled to team up with ACE to provide our customers with a strong roster of certified fitness professionals who can be easily accessed through amSTATZ no matter where they’re located,” said Michael Piermont, co-founder of amSTATZ. “This new partnership will also allow the fitness professionals themselves to improve engagement and provide them with a better overall fitness experience.”

The software allows personal trainers, health coaches and group fitness instructors to easily process payments, simplify scheduling, provide activities to complete between sessions that align with individual exercise programs, build custom workouts, and record client progress.

“Our goal is always to deliver the tools and resources our professionals need to be more effective at leading clients to healthy, long-term change and succeeding professionally,” Goudeseune said. “The integration of technology improves the experience for both consumers and professionals, so it was a natural fit for ACE.”

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
