Provide information that can be used by fitness professionals who work independently or in health clubs, schools, the health care industry, corporations and other community settings. To address its mission the International Health & Fitness Summit offers programming tracks that span the fitness and health care landscape.
As part of its educational programming, ACSM’s International Health & Fitness Summit includes a selection of industry-presented sessions relevant to health and fitness professionals. The Summit Program Committee reviews these sessions in advance using the same rigorous criteria for non-sponsored sessions. If accepted, these sessions are clearly marked as “industry-presented” in all promotional material. This designation gives Summit attendees the context needed to evaluate the material that is presented.
Consistent with ACSM’s long-standing policy, inclusion in Summit programming does not imply ACSM’s endorsement of the presenting sponsor or any industry-presented content. Financial support from these sessions and other sponsors helps keep the International Health & Fitness Summit affordable for attendees and further creates an overall positive Summit experience.
