Jijo & ACE Announce Partnership to Promote Importance of Trainer Certification
New York, April 15, 2021 (Newswire.com) - Jijo, a revolutionary new fitness platform scheduled to launch April 30, 2021, enables every person to achieve their potential one virtual class at a time, and the American Council on Exercise (ACE), a long-standing and highly trusted leader in the certification and empowerment of exercise professionals and health coaches, are proud to announce a new partnership to promote the importance of NCCA-accredited exercise professional certification programs and to celebrate the significant role that certified exercise professionals play in providing leadership and expertise to consumers looking to adopt a more physically active lifestyle or improve their fitness.
As it has become clear that virtual fitness is here to stay, both Jijo and ACE believe that ensuring clients are able to connect and train with appropriately qualified personal trainers and health coaches has never been more important.
In partnership, Jijo and ACE are not only committed to promoting the importance of recognized personal trainer certifications by continuing to provide educational resources and access to important information, but also make these programs more accessible to aspiring personal trainers who wish to become certified or maintain existing credentials.
"ACE is excited to partner with Jijo to help advance the profession and expand career opportunities for exercise professionals," said Graham Melstrand, ACE executive vice president for mission and innovation. "Jijo's commitment to hosting exercise professionals with credentials from accredited programs on their platform is perfectly aligned with ACE's belief that certification is essential for the growth and recognition of this industry."
Determined to make sure that Jijo is a safe and trusted platform for all who join, Jijo has committed to ensuring all exercise professionals on its platform are properly certified. For those that are not currently certified but wish to be, Jijo and ACE are providing a discount to reduce the expense of preparing for and earning an ACE certification.
"Jijo could not think of a better partner than ACE to launch with," said Charles Friedberg, Founder and CEO of Jijo. "ACE is undoubtedly a trusted and longstanding leader in fitness. This partnership will only strengthen Jijo's goal to empower instructors to create a thriving online business doing what they do best and enable clients to find consistently safe and high-quality workouts that fit their personalized needs."
Jijo's mission is enabling every person to achieve their potential, one virtual class at a time. Founded in 2020, Jijo recognized the importance and permanency of virtual fitness, but the lack of truly personalized platforms. Jijo recognized that both client and trainer challenges weren't being met by existing technology and platforms, and set about to deliver solutions for both. For clients, this was being given answers, rather than having to find them. For trainers, this was solving for new client acquisition and having the tools and insight to help motivate and retain clients longer, better helping them achieve their goals.
Jijo is re-imaging virtual fitness training, starting with you.
