ACSM, YMCA Partner to Promote Healthy Lifestyles

ACSM and YMCA of the USA have announced a formal partnership that will bring the two organizations’ shared goals and objectives to a widespread community audience. The partnership will seek to improve overall health in the United States through simple, affordable, effective steps – largely utilizing the reach and resources of ACSM including ACSM's American Fitness Index™, a program that ranks the 50 largest U.S. cities according to various health factors. The AFI program will be used by YMCAs as a tool to promote community wellness and lead community efforts on policy and environmental changes related to health. The Exercise is Medicine™ program will also play a significant role in the partnership, increasing the collaborative effort between health care providers and fitness professionals (including those employed by the YMCA) to create a complete picture of health. ACSM members are encouraged to enhance the partnership through their own efforts, using tools such as the AFI Community Action Guide and Keys to Exercise video series. more
