CFA Joined the Physical Activity Alliance

In 2022, the CFA joined the Advisory Board of the Physical Activity Alliance (PAA). The Physical Activity Alliance is the nation’s largest and most inclusive community of physical activity advocates, researchers, academics, and practitioners. The PAA has several key initiatives including developing and implementing a system of measurement that will enable exercise to be prescribed and measured in the healthcare system.

CA Fitness Industry Takes a Leadership Role in Equity in Pay

Educating our Elected Officials on the Importance of Physical Activity and the Fitness Industry

In 2022 the CFA Team met with California state legislators to advocate and educate on the essential role of physical activity and the fitness industry. As a result several Assemblymembers have agreed to author/sponsor legislation that will increase access to physical activity and fitness centers for many Californians.
