For 30 years, the IDEA
World Fitness Convention has set the standard for the fitness industry by
providing the world’s best fitness education, programs, trends and research. IDEA
reaches thousands of personal trainers, group fitness and mind-body instructors.
Here is what I loved about this amazing fitness conference in downtown LA.
1. Being in a different city: Being in a different city makes the whole experience
exciting for many reasons: you’re in a beautiful hotel room (the Marriott!),
you’re with colleagues that love the same thing you do, and you’re getting
inspired all around by amazing and talented people.
2. Meeting fitness professionals and presenters: Watching and admiring presenters that go up on stage
and give it their all is priceless. They share their passions and their
knowledge, and simply shine on stage. They give us the motivation we so badly
need to continue doing what we do with so much passion! And they make us dream
about some day, too, getting up on stage in front of our peers to givesomething back.
3. Bonding with fitness peeps: Whether it is in a workshop where you connect with
someone or at the nearest coffee shop standing in line amongst fitness peeps
all dressed in Lululemon apparel, anywhere you go you are surrounded with this
amazing energy of people that love what they do. It’s mindblowing!
4. Having to choose between
so many great sessions. Spending the entire day
learning and sweating is so much fun! Multiply that by 3 because the conference
takes place over 3 days (even longer if you register for pre or post workshops)!
Fitness conferences are like a daycamp or a Club Med. You just can’t get enough
5. The inspiration you take
home: Coming home from IDEA, I went through my
notes, and remembered all the great moments of bonding I had with the people I
met and spent time with at this event. Moments like sharing wine in the room
with my hotel roomies, a quick chat with Yoav Avivar after his last step
session, downtime with the amazing duo Lashaun Dale and Lisa Wheeler,
hors-d’oeuvres with Lawrence Biscontini at the Happy Hour for international
attendees, bowling with Patrick Goudeau and Jay Blahnik, and many, many more.
say, I miss it already ! I’m looking forward to IDEA’s next event coming
up later this fall. Will you be attending any conferences anytime soon ?
Tell us which ones!
