Exercise is Medicine® Credential

Exercise professionals who hold the Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) Credential showcase their ability to help individuals with common chronic medical conditions adopt and maintain an active lifestyle. The EIM Credential signifies that an exercise professional has met important educational requirements, is part of the EIM initiative and is prepared to collaborate with members of the health care community to improve referred patients’ health outcomes. 

The credential helps exercise professionals build relationships with health care providers, highlighting how their services could extend a provider’s reach of care. Current EIM professionals report that the EIM Credential is a valuable conversation starter with providers who are curious about how an exercise professional could assist their patients within or outside the health care setting. 

EIM Credential Requirements: 

Upon obtaining the EIM credential, the exercise professional receives: 

  • A digital EIM Credential certificate and option to purchase a plaque, ID card, acrylic block and other products;
  • An EIM lapel pin (you can pick this up at any ACSM educational event); and
  • An invitation to receive EIM monthly updates and participate in EIM programs and events.
