IDEA conventions are top of the line- I’m also a fan of the Perform Better functional training summit as it is a mix of trainers, coaches and therapists. http://www.performbetter.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SeminarsDisplay?c…
It’s nice to network and learn with similar but different professionals and to stay current pear reviewed information.
hands-down favorites are the IDEA conventions. I love to expose myself to many different ideas and take off from there if I feel it is a good fit (that’s where I was first introduced to MELT). I remember more than one conference where I felt that just one class alone was worth the entire expense.
This year, I also added a few NASM specialty certifications which are really just continuing education with a title at the end. I like those as well because they go into great depth and provide wonderful material.
