Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) May 11, 2015
The National Military Family Association (NMFA), a nonprofit that works to strengthen and protect military families, and AcaciaTV, whose mission is to keep families healthy and fit while making exercise easy and accessible for everyone, are teaming up to give service members and their families a way to stay fit from the comfort of their own homes.
AcaciaTV members have access to more than 100 workouts through a subscription-based platform which they can stream from US. Acacia.TV anywhere and anytime.
"More than 75% of military families live off base, and many of those families are living in rural areas where they don’t have access to a fitness center,” said NMFA Executive Director Joyce Raezer. “We are excited to work with AcaciaTV to give families access to hundreds of workout videos at a special, discounted rate.”
AcaciaTV offers workouts for all fitness levels and each workout is approximately 20 minutes. In addition to the vast library, AcaciaTV offers support from experts and trainers in a private Facebook community.
For each new membership, AcaciaTV will make a donation to NMFA to help support military families. In addition, AcaciaTV is offering a 35% discount for military families who sign up during May, which is Military Appreciation Month.
“We are thrilled to support NMFA and their amazing initiatives,” said Allison Rand, AcaciaTV General Manager. “AcaciaTV trainers and experts are on hand to help our military families set and reach their fitness goals with quality programs, support and advice.”
