As a nation, we talk about food a lot. In fact, we are mildly obsessed with it. Every day there is a new study touting the benefits of the latest “superfood” and another that criticizes last year’s thinking about it. In fact, there is so much to read, interpret, digest and use or discard that just keeping up with the latest in food and nutrition can be a full-time job.

In the early evenings, you could faintly hear the screams outside--about every 45 seconds--from the quiet, cushy guest rooms in the J.W. Marriott at L.A. LIVE.
AIIIIEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! It sounded like the breathless squeals people emit on the most hair-raising portion of a crazy amusement-park ride. But in downtown L.A.? Turns out it was the throng of teenage girls cheering for One Direction, the wildly popular boy band that was playing next door at the Staples Center over four consecutive nights.
Let’s face it. Although humans are creatures of habit, if we don’t make exercise fun and mix it up every once in a while we are not going to stick with it. One way to keep workouts fresh and fun is to develop unique programming that cannot be found elsewhere. Freshen up your tool box and get creative class ideas at the IDEA World Fitness Convention™ August 7-11 in Los Angeles. There are loads of orignial sessions from which you can cull class ideas. Here are a few examples:
The U.S. population is aging, which makes now the perfect time for fitness professionals to learn more about training older adults. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by 2050, one in every five Americans will be considered a senior. The U.S. Census Bureau also predicts that between now and 2030, the 65 and older population will grow an average of 2.8% annually.
