May 31, 2010:  Michael Labuanan has recently become the IYCA’s most decorated professional in the world.


The Hawaiian native was the first IYCA Professional to earn the organizations ‘Youth Fitness Specialist – Level 3’ distinction.


The ‘Level 3’ distinction has allowed Labuanan to claim the title as the most credentialed Member of the IYCA International Family of Youth Fitness Specialists.


“I love everything about the IYCA and what it stands for” said Labuanan.  “I am ecstatic to be the first certified ‘Youth Fitness Specialist – Level 3’ and the highest ranking IYCA certified trainer in the world right now.  The support of the Members and staff in this organization is by far the best”.


“I don’t think we could be more proud of Michael and his efforts” said Brian Grasso, Founder and CEO of the IYCA.  “He is a model for other IYCA Family Members worldwide”.


To date, only two other Youth Fitness Specialists have earned the ‘Level 3’ credentials through the IYCA.


“It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of the IYCA family. Since joining the IYCA in 2008 and becoming a certified YFS two years ago, my youth fitness program has flourished with the education I have received and continue to receive about youth fitness”, said Labuanan.


“This has definitely been a life changer and I cannot express the gratitude I have for my IYCA Family”.
