What's New

IDEA has combined its traditional World Fitness IDEA and IDEA Personal Trainer Summit West events into the IDEA World Fitness & Personal Trainer Convention®, which will take place July 17 through 20 in Anaheim, California. This grand affair will continue IDEA’s mission to Inspire the World to Fitness, and what could be more inspiring than holding it in the home of the World Series Champion Anaheim Angels? While learning and enjoying the conference, let the Angels’ model of teamwork inspire you to inspire others.

As you would expect, IDEA has arranged for personal trainers an impressive assortment of fun and informative seminars covering several topics, including the following:

  • biomechanics, program design and training techniques

  • training clients for specific sports, including tennis and “extreme” sports

  • overcoming clients’ psychological barriers

  • nutrition and weight management

  • business and management tips for personal trainers

By attending these sessions, you will be able to earn as many as 20 hours of continuing education credits (CECs).

Between sessions and at the end of each day, you’ll be able to unwind while shopping and testing the latest in fitness products at the IDEA Health & Fitness Expo, sponsored by Kashi®. Within the 300,000 square feet of Expo space, more than 150 exhibitors will showcase numerous products, and many of them will offer enticing discounts. In addition, you are invited to join in honoring your peers’ passion for and commitment to fitness on the evening of Thursday, July 17, at the IDEA Health & Fitness Industry Awards, presented exclusively by Propel Fitness Water®.
