Celebrate MOVEment at 2023 IDEA World

Celebrating MOVEment at IDEA World.

Are you ready to celebrate MOVEment? Until you’ve lived IDEA World you won’t understand what a game changer this extravaganza of fitness, nutrition, wellness and fun can be both personally and professionally.        

Fitness and wellness professionals have a calling: To help people move toward improved quality of life. Whether you’re a personal trainer who inspires clients to move more effectively, a group fitness instructor encouraging students to move with joy, or a coach guiding others to move toward healthier choices, your success relies on three elements: knowledge, inspiration and community. That’s what you’ll find at IDEA World. This isn’t just a 4-day educational event—it’s a celebration of movement that’s designed to give you what you need to inspire your world to fitness.

If you’re more of an owner-entrepreneur or manager, we’ve got you covered. With well-being top of mind for many consumers, it’s the perfect time to adapt your business to meet their needs and scale to new heights. But you don’t have to do it alone. In the IDEA World Club & Studio Summit Powered by BFS, you’ll hear from successful business owners about how to level up your business and power the industry together. The summit features fast-paced, dynamic sessions that will provide you with strategies for creating loyal customers, enhancing sales, implementing streamlined operations and more. You’ll also take advantage of networking opportunities where you can widen your sphere of support and build lifelong connections.

My first IDEA World was in 2002 in San Diego. It was IDEA’s 20th anniversary and I was a first-year newbie in the industry. To say I was overwhelmed by the experience is putting it lightly.  

From Opening Ceremonies onward throughout that week I was overtaken by the waves of pure energy and goodness that enveloped me. The positivity blew back my hair and infused every cell in my body so thoroughly that I barely slept. My brain got stuffed with new knowledge that I couldn’t wait to share. I met fit pros from all over the world whom I still call friends (a few besties among them). I danced myself silly every night! 

I know many of you have stories about how IDEA World changed your life and career. I’d absolutely love it if you shared your memories on the IDEA World Facebook Group to get the buzz started!  

If you’ve never attended, or if you have a colleague who hasn’t experienced the pure magic of this event, this is a great year to do it. We’re back in Los Angeles June 12-16 (one of my favorite venues) and the program is bursting with new, exciting material and presenters. There are some exciting networking events and parties planned as well. Check out the brochure and reserve your sessions while they’re still available.  

Let’s learn and laugh together all day, and dance all night!
