Orlando Health and Exercise Franchise SuperSlow Zone® Assures Clients With IACET Accreditation
SuperSlow Zone®, Orlando’s distinctive health and exercise franchise, responds to CBS News report by educating its clients about the value of its IACET accreditation.
Orlando, Fla. – May 9, 2008 – SuperSlow Zone®, headquartered in Orlando, Fla., recently responded to a CBS News report entitled, “Certified Personal Trainers.” The report, which ran on April 3, shed a negative light on the personal training industry by focusing on the lack of regulations and professional standards. Although the report was unfavorable, CEO of SuperSlow Zone®, LLC, Madeline Ross agreed that the personal training market is, for the most part, undisciplined. To avoid this, and to institute professional standards, Ross has made the IACET accreditation a priority of the SuperSlow Zone® franchise.
IACET (http://www.iacet.org) is known as the premier, standard-setting organization for continuing education and training providers. IACET Authorized Providers complete a comprehensive application and undergo a strict evaluation of their educational processes according to the ANSI/IACET standards. Only IACET Authorized Providers can offer the IACET CEU, the hallmark of quality in continuing education and training.
“Our focus has been to continually maintain SuperSlow Zone® with professional standards through our accreditation by IACET and through the design, development and functioning of the SuperSlow Zone® locations,” said Ross. “SuperSlow Zone® Institute is the organization through which Certified SuperSlow® Instructors maintain their annual certification by fulfilling Continuing Education Units. This, of course, is a requirement of IACET and essential for the continual development of the SuperSlow Zone® personnel. The lack of accredited personal training certifications and, hence, the lack of continual education, is exactly the target of the CBS reporting.”For more information about SuperSlow Zone® please visit http://www.SuperSlowZone.com.
