Source: Ecore

Lancaster, PA (May 1, 2017) – Ecore, a company that transforms reclaimed waste into performance surfaces that make people's lives better, now offers a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) that addresses the trend toward functional training and flooring performance characteristics and trends. The CEU program, titled “Fitness for Purpose,” is designed to increase attendees’ knowledge of flooring technology.

The “Fitness for Purpose” course focuses on the importance of selecting the right flooring for each specialized space in an athletic or fitness facility, from traditional fitness to functional training, specialized training for elite athletes and state-of-the-art sports medicine.

“Surfacing has a direct impact on the people using it, not only their feet, back and joints but also their ability to perform their best and avoid injury,” said Troy Kelley, director of sales for Ecore Athletic. “Different activities require different balances of force reduction, energy restitution and acoustic capabilities. This course is designed to highlight trends in fitness flooring and the importance of customizing your surface based on your specific needs, such as acoustics, safety and performance.”

Upon completing this CEU, attendees will be able to identify new trends in fitness, select the appropriate athletic or fitness surfaces, based on their needs, compare different types of flooring for force reduction and energy restitution, and evaluate product quality for durability, maintenance, sustainability and design flexibility.

Ecore is a registered provider with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems (CES). Credit earned upon completion of this program will be reported to CES records for AIA members. Certificates of completion for non-AIA members are available upon request.
