The pandemic gave IDEA—like so many of you—a moment to pause, reassess and reinvent itself in what has become a renaissance of sorts for fitness professionals and our entire industry. The world as we knew it is forever changed—as are we, our businesses and clients.

IDEA chose to embrace the adversity and upheaval. We listened closely to IDEA members and to fitness professionals at large in order to take stock of reality, assess options, craft a plan and blaze a path forward. Our team found resilience—even comfort—in building a new membership structure and creating customized support tools to address your pain points and challenges. Supporting you is, after all, our mission and our mandate.

The result is our new IDEAfit+ Membership, a value-packed bundle of content, services and support tools that cannot be matched elsewhere. Just look at the chart on this page, “You Do the Math.” Where else can you get an all-access pass to IDEA’s award-winning Fitness Journal content (plus all of our niche newsletters); un–limited free CECs accredited by 25 certifying agencies; an open door to IDEA’s 800+ IDEAfit TV filmed courses; access to FitPost social media services, with ready-made posts to keep your client engagement high; IDEA’s customizable Client Newsletter; and more? The cherry on top of this already sweet bunch is that the first 15,000 people to become IDEAfit+ Members will receive a free ticket (a $399 value, with up to 21 CECs) to 2021 IDEA World Virtual, the most sought-after fitness education event in the industry!

IDEAfit PRO SHOW Podcast for Fitness Professionals

Part of IDEA’s reinvention includes launching our content off the pages of this magazine into a one-of-a-kind weekly podcast that will spark your imagination in exciting new ways. I have the pleasure and privilege of hosting this entertaining and lively variety show format and will look forward to bringing you discussions that cover the gamut of what drives our work and passion as fitness professionals:

  • Stay on top of research about how to translate credible exercise and nutrition science into actionable programming.
  • Listen in as the industry’s emerging and seasoned thought leaders share how they are positioned for success in the near and long term.
  • Get a front-row seat as experts discuss inclusiveness, social justice, body image, behavioral science and all the complicated emotional IQ topics that we need to be aware of and sensitive to as fit pros and business owners.
