Today is Monday, the day following 4 days of the most rich and fun IDEA World Fitness Convention I’ve ever attended. I am both exhausted and elated.This morning I woke up with flecks of glittery eye makeup still clinging to my face, reminders of the great parties I attended during the weekend. The makeup will wash off, but the inner sparkle I gained over four days of pure atomic energy from 6,000 attendees hailing from more than 80 countries is permanently engraved inside me. What a wild and fun ride this one was!
David Mesirow, Fred Hoffman and Nicki Anderson discuss the holistic wellness direction of the fitness industry in an impromptu interview with editor in chief Sandy Todd Webster at the 2008 IDEA World Fitness Convention.
I circled the globe in one hour Friday night. The 7 people I met at our International Reception took me from one side of the world to the other and reminded me of how far IDEA's reach has become over the years.
Can I just say that the IDEA Party in Paradise kicked some serious Boombsey last night? And, yes, Kukuwa Nuamah, I saw you up there shakin' your business on the stage when we all learned that new dance. My word, what a great looking crowd of stoked, fun people we had there. The energy in that room was turbo Red Bull.
The night goes too fast. The morning comes too early. And these are Vegas nights and mornings, so I think you know how that goes. The in-between part when you're supposed to cool your heels with Mr. Sand Man somehow evaporates into the desert night.
