IDEA truly has opened many doors for me as I progressed through my personal training journey. Doors to education. Doors to personal growth .Doors to Friendships. Thanks, IDEA, for being the one placeI could turn for questions, ideas and new pathways!
“IDEA had been a steadfast support and wealth of knowledge to me over my 35 plus years in the Fitness Industry! Not only with superior customer service, but also for Insurance and Continuing Education! 🙌🏾 Thank you IDEA! Peace ✌🏾 Lynnette Blomquist- ACE Personal Trainer ACE Group Fitness, Gliding Master Trainer, over 35 years experience.
Thank you IDEA for all your continued support in all areas of fitness. Knowledge is power. this helps all keep learning and adapting our programs to fit the needs of our participants!
I've relied on IDEA for over 20 years, and the relationship has been so trouble-free, I've hardly noticed how easy it's been. How nice to have such reliable, dependable backup!
You are second to none in my estimation. The information in your magazines; education, studies and results, up to date info....literally second to none.
I have been affiliated with IDEA for over 25 years now, and have found no comparison to the quality, and professionalism that IDEA continues to exhibit year after year with their reading material, conferences, CEC, etc. Looking forward to many more years of exiting continuous affiliation.
IDEA is an organization of true professionals, for professionals. They offer essential resources for members, they helped out during COVID and always are finding ways to improve their services. That's how you know you're part of something great. Thanks IDEA for creating a community I want to be a part of.
Becoming an IDEA Health & Fitness member was one of the best decisions I’ve made as a trainer. If I need support, CECs or I’m looking for a great fitness article I know I can go to the website or open my physical copy of the IDEA Fitness Journal. There is nothing like attending an IDEAFit Conference and being part of a community of like minded professionals. I have met so many wonderful people over the years through Idea Fit. It’s a community that I am thankful and proud to be a part! Thanks for all you do IDEA!
In our changing times, it is so important to have a responsive organization like IDEA to support the wellness industry. IDEA provides the tools and resources for me to support my students and clients in making positive changes in their overall wellbeing. It's life changing for many!
