AFAA is in the process of completing the construction of its own web site/directory that is in conjunction with The Biggest Loser television show. As such, AFAA certified professionals who have been verified by AFAA and choose to become Biggest Loser Pros, will be able to leverage the power of the show and earn fees from AFAA to conduct online sessions with clients. In addition, the Biggest Loser Pros will be authorized to conduct Biggest Loser Live Training sessions at local clubs and change the lives of millions of people who need help to lose weight safely and effectively.

Herbert, co-editor of The Exercise Standards and Malpractice Reporter, now in its 25th year of publication. His comments are attached through the following link: http://pdfs.afaa.com/afaa_letter_07-12-11.pdf
