I have never had this problem. Though finding something in a specific city at a specific time could be more dirfficult. You could organize your own workshop. If you get enough participants together for a workshop, you should be able to find an organization to put one on for you. I present a number of CEC courses. In order for me to travel for a group or facility, they need to cover my expenses directly or with enrollment.
Hello Andrea Bowden,
Besides the sources listed, I also receive mailings throughout the year for live conferences and teaching events. Here is a link from IDEA:
Natalie aka NAPS 2 B Fit.
This is a new site that tries to get all sorts of trainings posted on one site.
Also, if you are on Facebook, there is a group called Group Fitness Instructors in the PNW. That has a bunch of trainings posted, and they are not just group-ex. Whenever I see a personal training item come up, I post it there.
Sadly, you just missed IDEA’s PTI – West in Seattle last weekend. I was great!
there are many more than those already mentioned, such as FitPro http://fitpronow.com/content/2016-fitness-conventions-conferences-0, Mania https://scwfit.com/mania/, Empower http://empowerfitnessevents.com/ and Exercise Etc. http://exerciseetc.com/schedule.html.
The Pilates and Yoga communities also have ongoing workshops all over the place. I am sure that will be one that suits your need.
