About IDEA’s Events

For over 35 years, IDEA has been the trusted leader in setting the standard for the fitness and wellness industry by providing the world’s best education and content. Through our events, we reach thousands of personal trainers, group fitness instructors, mind-body professionals, program/fitness directors, business owners, nutrition/health coaches, social media influencers, and fitness enthusiasts. We recognize that participants make an important investment to attend our events and as such, IDEA is committed to offering substantive, content-driven education that can be supported by research and accepted industry practices.
