Welcome to Hollywood . . . and the 2010 IDEA World Fitness Convention™! Make your plans now to join the excitement at the industry’s largest and longest-running fitness convention. It’s all happening for the first time at the world-famous L.A. LIVE entertainment complex in the heart of Los Angeles, site of the American Music Awards, the ESPYs, the EMMYs and the American Idol finals.
“This year’s convention is going to be our biggest ever, and we’re excited to be at a location that’s brand-new for us, L.A. LIVE, the new entertainment and sports district in Los Angeles,” says Kathie Davis, co-founder of IDEA Health & Fitness Association. “We’re going to have lots of surprises and special features, so our members will get great value for their travel dollars—they can invest in their career and their future, and also enjoy a wonderful vacation with their families. We’re adding more entertainment and fun this year, so it’s going to be a really novel experience, even for members who have attended IDEA World Fitness Convention before.”
Red Carpet of Fitness
The 2010 IDEA World Fitness Convention is your chance to share the red carpet with the biggest names in fitness and participate in nearly 350 educational sessions on the hottest topics in the industry.

An Expanded 5-Day Event
This year’s convention has been extended to include a full 5 days of fitness education (make your travel plans accordingly). The Wednesday-through-Sunday convention schedule begins 1 day earlier this year with a new full day (Wednesday) of Premier Seminar training—15 courses of in-depth specialty education brought to you by IDEA and the leading companies in fitness.
