I am, and I can’t wait for the conference to start.
I am a personal trainer, and as such I am usually loading up on lectures and workshops about biomechanics, posture, gait, assessments. I love to hear different presenters coming at it from their specific angle. I remember years back when that really made me mad because I just wanted to hear the one right answer. In the meantime, I have realized that there are many right answers depending on circumstances.
What I also enjoy is the energy created by the many (usually younger)group exercise instructors and the many creative approaches to fitness in that realm. While I am (by ACSM definition) an older adult (yikes :-), I love to take classes and see the ‘kids’ bounce around with limitless enthusiasm.
Being able to exchange ideas with other trainers is fun. I love the international participants. It almost feels like we are all making a contribution to world peace.
IDEA World – I love it.
