Fuel Your Passion!

Warm-Up

We all have experiences that make profound impressions on us and change the way we approach family, friends, business and life in general. If you’ve never attended the IDEA World Fitness Convention™, we would like to suggest you consider it a true game changer. Of course, we are somewhat biased, but we have heard too many testimonials over the three decades we’ve been doing this to know that we’re not just “proud parents” of the most spectacular educational fitness extravaganza on the planet!

The 2014 IDEA World Fitness event will be upon us in just 6 weeks or so (August 13–17 in Anaheim, California). There are many compelling reasons to attend—not least of which are getting yourself out of your day-to-day routine and giving yourself an experience that will educate you, energize you and feed your enthusiasm for many months to come. Your time at IDEA World Fitness will help you to develop exciting new ideas that will move your career— and perhaps your life—forward.

We hope you’ll take this opportunity to focus on yourself and your future. We truly feel that this is the convention’s very best program to date with a broad variety of education, special events and Expo Hall experiences. This is the must-attend event of the year!

National Fitness Hall of Fame Induction

As many of you know, when you are struggling to build a business, gathering awards and accolades is the last thing on your “to do” list. That is precisely why we were deeply honored to be inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame in early May.

We cofounded IDEA in 1982 on the strength of one basic premise; that fostering professionalism in the health and fitness industry could help millions of people around the world to live healthier, happier lives. We were fresh out of college and felt empowered by the growing fitness movement. But we also realized that fitness instructors had little experience or background. We believed that the fitness industry needed some kind of association that offered unbiased information, safety standards and career development resources.

From that revelation IDEA was born, and we’ve never looked back. In 32 years, IDEA has grown to more than 65,000 members and subscribers in more than 80 countries who carry out the IDEA mission to Inspire the World to Fitness®. We are so grateful to be recognized for this honor. Many thanks to all of you and to the National Fitness Hall of Fame!
