ST. LOUIS, July 20, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) has announced the addition of connected vertical fitness machine enterprise CLMBR to its Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable, a group of thought leaders and industry professionals who explore effective clinical innovations, activate marketing strategies, accelerate reimbursement and policy adoption, and pursue research and demonstrations of lifestyle medicine in practice.
ACLM launched its Corporate Roundtable in 2016 and it now includes more than 30 active member organizations in the lifestyle medicine ecosystem. The Roundtable convenes thought leaders and industry professionals to explore effective clinical innovations, activate marketing strategies, accelerate reimbursement and policy adoption, and pursue research and demonstrations of lifestyle medicine in practice.
Lifestyle medicine is defined as the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention—including a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection—as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease.
Denver-based CLMBR designs and manufactures digitally connected vertical climbers and produces on-demand, instructor-led classes and programming. CLMBR is a zero-impact fitness machine that allows the user to move in a primal cross-crawl motion and to choose a balance of cardiovascular and strength conditioning with varying levels of resistance and programming. The equipment provides a high intensity but low-impact cardio workout with resistance strength training and connected technology.
“At CLMBR, our mission is to provide the most efficient, full-body workout on the market that can be accessed right in one’s home,” said CLMBR Founder and CEO Avrum Elmakis. “Connected fitness is at the forefront of the fitness world, and our goal is to educate the world about the vertical climbing modality and its myriad of benefits. We’re honored to be working alongside other experts and practitioners who are seeking to transform the way the world looks at health and wellness.”
“CLMBR’s focus on home-based, precision strength and cardio efficiency, without putting tension on joints, is an innovation for people who want to take care of themselves and remain as fit and healthy as possible,” said ACLM President Cate Collings, MD, MS, FACC, DipABLM. “We welcome them to our Corporate Roundtable.”
