In 2011, people began to go “back to the basics” with more regimented exercise programs such as boot camp-workouts and functional strength training programs.

The barefoot running movement gained popularity with the release of Christopher McDougall’s book "Born to Run" in 2009. Since then, a number of shoe brands have released a barefoot or minimalist-style running shoe. In 2011, ACE commissioned a study to determine what happens when runners switch from their traditional running shoes to wearing minimalist running shoes: http://bit.ly/1NkSpmX ACE is proud to celebrate 30 years of helping individuals lead their most fit lives! ‪#‎ACE30

I find that the shoes with cushioning system are encouraging runners to strike however they feel, because they are protected anyway, while barefoot running encourages a runner to be more protective with their heels and to avoid landing heavily.

In 2007, Jack LaLanne, considered the “Godfather of Fitness”, was awarded the President’s Council’s Lifetime Achievement Award, which was given to individuals whose careers have greatly contributed to the advancement or promotion of physical activity, fitness, sports or nutrition. The fitness industry is forever indebted to his over 70 years of work and the millions of lives he impacted before he passed away in 2011 at the age of 96.

We’re almost to 2015! In 2012, SoulCycle, a New York City-based fitness company that offers a 45-minute full-body indoor cycling workout class, launched its very own SoulCycle bike. This is one of many forms of indoor cycling classes, which is a fitness trend that started in the 1980s when Johnny Goldberg introduced Spinning.

In 2010, President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a law that put in place comprehensive health insurance reforms. Yesterday the Supreme Court made a major ruling to uphold a key element of the ACA that provides health insurance subsidies to qualifying Americans. ACE CEO Scott Goudeseune shares his thoughts on this decision on our Advocacy Blog: http://bit.ly/1LLAbdh
