We all know a client’s results are determined in the time between meetings. The worst feeling is meeting with a client and hearing how unsuccessful they were over the last couple weeks. Or, spending the first 10 minutes of a session trying to have the client recall how things went. Technology has now enabled us to be with our clients 24/7. How can we use it to improve outcomes, scale our business but not take over our lives? Walk away from this session with tech tools that can help you run a lean business, deliver higher levels of client success, structure communications and more.

If you understand that food contains information for the body, the emerging evidence that nutrition has a role in mental health won’t surprise you. While it is well-established that food influences the structure and function of the brain, the connection to mood, stress, and anxiety is a newer area of interest. This session will provide an overview of the most recent science on food and the brain, top foods and nutrients that support mental health, and guidance for health professionals on how to help their clients. “

BLAME: Client Excuses for Not Exercising and Solutions to Retrain Their Behaviors

Rick Richey, PhD

This session has been approved by the following agencies:

There’s always a reason for not sticking to the exercise goals your clients set for themselves. And some of these reasons aren’t even true! Research tells us that their perception of why they do not stick to exercise may be just as valuable as the truth. Based on original and existing research, this workshop explores the stories clients create to explain exercise noncompliance and how to retrain their BLAME (attributional retraining). We’ll review the research and then break into groups and experience a four-part process shown to increase exercise motivation and adherence.

In her session, she will break down the 45 genes that have an impact on your client’s health and wellness and will reveal which genes are the most important for building muscle, and losing fat.

Your proof of attendance and CEC credits are on your CEC certificate, which you can access any time after the conference at www.ideafit.com/myeducation.

Workouts do not qualify for CECs. They are designed to be just that, a workout. No CEC-able education is associated with them.

The credits you can earn at this event are recognized by the following agencies: ACE, ACSM, AFAA, BOC, NASM, NFPT, NSCA, W.I.T.S., Cooper Institute, NETA, NESTA, and NFPT. If your certification agency is not listed, simply check with the agency to see what credits it allows.

Q: What do I do if zero credits are assigned to my scheduled session?

CECs are assigned by the certification agency, not IDEA. Certification agencies base credits on the education provided and presenter qualifications. Make sure the sessions you attend have CEC verification prior to attending.

Q: How many CECs are offered for each session?

Generally, you’ll receive one CEC per contact hour for workshops and lectures. If you attend a 2-hour workshop, you’ll receive up to 2 credit hours. We are in the process of getting approvals from each of the agencies above and will post the credits as soon as they are available.

Q: What is the Virtual Expo Hall?

A virtual expo hall offers the valuable education, networking and brand exploration of a physical event, but in the comfort of your home or anywhere you have an internet connection. Through an easy to navigate virtual event platform, attendees are able to move freely through virtual lobbies, auditoriums and expo halls. Featuring chats with Q&A capabilities, excitement filled special events and activities like trivia games, polling and challenges, virtual expo halls create a familiar interactive experience through a 3D virtual event platform. The IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo offers the benefits of the latest technology to connect with even more industry leaders and brands from all over the world through a high quality virtual event experience.

Q: Will my personal information be shared?

Your contact information can be set to private during the registration process but by doing so you will be forfeiting the ability to be contacted by presenters and sponsors and may miss out on giveaways, discounts and free promotions.

Q: Can I share my virtual conference login information with other members of my team?

For every registration, only one device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone) will be allowed to enter the virtual platform. The credits earned are tied to the account of the individual that purchased the virtual event.
