Find Your Inspiration

by Peter Davis, CEO and Kathie Davis on Apr 11, 2013


By now some of you have received the 2013 IDEA World Fitness ConventionTM brochure (if not, look for yours with the May issue); you may also have browsed the brochure online at We may be 4 months out from the Superbowl of fitness industry conventions, but we are already in high gear here at IDEA headquarters planning the details of this event to ensure it is the best—and most fun—fitness education experience you will ever have.

When you’re in the business of changing lives, nothing gets the job done like inspiration. But what does it take to inspire change in yourself and in your clients? You’ll find the answer at 2013 IDEA World in Los Angeles, August 7–11. The event theme, “BE: The Inspiration,” will focus on how to transform your life and your work into a powerful source of motivation strong enough to change lives—including your own. We believe there is nothing more exciting than the entire fitness community coming together for 4 days to learn, share and experience the many ways to Inspire the World to Fitness®!

No other event can give you the energy, exuberance and in-depth educational journey that you’ll experience at IDEA World Fitness. It’s about transformational people, stories, education, motivation and purpose. You’ll gain career-changing knowledge from the world’s best fitness and wellness faculty and learn how you can embody inspiration in your work and in your life—not merely by what you do, but by who you are.

IDEA World is the industry’s largest and longest-running fitness event, and this year it features more than 360 sessions on the latest topics from an elite corps of experts. This enormous selection gives you the freedom to customize your learning experience to your current passions, while inviting you to explore plenty of new areas that spark your interest. You’ll learn how to advance your profession and turn the world’s best education for fitness professionals into new career and business opportunities when you go back home.

The convention experience will take you far beyond traditional education as you immerse yourself in an impassioned community of like-minded professionals and enjoy 4 days of intensive growth and inspiration together. No event in the industry can match the energy, exuberance and in-depth educational journey you’ll experience at this convention.

We invite you to be part of the community of leading fitness professionals. We think you’ll be thrilled by this year’s event, where the exceptional programming will give you the tools you need to change lives, be more successful and make our world better. Check out the preview story about the event in this issue.
